More about CP
Keep up to date with all the insanity at extremist Christian conservative blog Conservapedia right here. This page is for rolling reports of the strange, contradictory or humorous activity at Conservapedia. Archives of past months are available at:

Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 2.3.0 : No results found.


There are are several other places where we Chronicle Conservapedia Craziness:
  • All-time classics worth preserving for eternity should be removed from this page and entered at Best of Conservapedia. The new "up/down" voting system is how we are going to try to pick what should go there.[1]
  • Much of the insanity relates to users foolishly thinking they can add sane material, or, worse yet, argue with the powers that be. They are usually banned quickly, and often in fascinating ways. See Conservapedia:Banwatch for articles of this sort.
  • Please add newest contributions to this list at the top and try to copy the formatting carefully so the polls work properly. Each new entry gets an ID number one higher than the previous one.
    Note to Readers: Due to conservative deceit, some page links from this page to Conservapedia may be broken.

What is going on?

  • Though it should surprise no one, CP once again completely misrepresents another study on the front page. What the study actually says is that liberals and conservatives rated each other almost identically. The differences only emerged when two specific people were rated: Bush and Cheney. Of course, CP and the opinion piece they use as a "source" use this single example to completely twist the study's findings.
  • WOW! What a clean, concise, informative, educational liberal entry this was! Update:PJR is going soft?
  • Andy and co have worked really hard on the Hollywood Values monstrosity. Don't try to improve the article in any way, for example, by adding actual quotes, or else feel wrong end of Andy's banhammer Thank God and difference number 5 that NONE OF THIS IS GOSSIP. UPDATE: Singers are part of Hollywood now.
  • Well, this is at least as reliable as Andy's dinner conversation.
  • With a simple Freudian slip, does MexMax reveal he's actually a parodist?
  • I'm sure Andy's soon-to-come clarifications on block rules will be carefully observed by all CP sysops. UPDATE: "We don't block purely for ideology". Oh, right.
  • Andy brings use of the post hoc fallacy to new heights, somehow believing that JK Rowling was invited to speak at Harvard because one of her characters is gay, not for being, you know, just about the most successful author in history or anything.
  • DanH is insulted that he was called a liberal parodist. Isn't that #12 and #37?
  • Andy resorts to number 19 in the Liberal Style and gets Bitch slapped for his efforts
  • Edit Wars! Joaquín Martínez and StephenW argue over whether abortion is murder. Update: Edit war is over - Joaquín finally remembered that being a sysop makes his content more right.
  • User:TheGuy slaps down Godspeed. How long before he's banned? UPDATE: Not Long
  • Find out where they stand. All your favourite fundies declare their preference on cp:User:CPAdmin1/Election08. Update: Joaquín Martínez apparently decides that, since sysops are above the rules anyway, they should be allowed to vote twice
  • Leave it to Andy to cram so much idiocy into two short paragraphs. Their edits "are span the political spectrum", you know. (Yeah, from Far-Right to Ultra-Right. And while "Liberals try to smear people they don't like", mention of Conservatives doing similar is conspicuous by its absence...)
  • What hurt Ed's feelings?
  • Liberals - especially of the Hollywood variety - value disease.
  • Liberal supremacist. How precious.
  • "Virtually every study" shows that guns deter and prevent crime. Interestingly, Andy has not mentioned a single one of those studies.
  • Nighttime editing: Shit hits the fan
  • Well, it "isn't news", but the death of actor Heath Ledger is worth making a cheap political slur...UPDATE: Schlafly darest not speak his name for some reason. FURTHER UPDATE: According to self-proclaimed medical expert Andy Schlafly, "28-year-olds do not just die naked on the floor of natural causes." I guess that's one less thing to worry about, then.Update: Pwned!
  • Thank god liberals have Conservapedia to decide their views for them
  • What could Fox possibly have against bacon? Is there some kind of librul bias when it comes to the cooking of some good, old fashioned pig? Oh... UPDATE: Fox continues his Battle of the Swine.
  • Conservapedia touts the installation of metal detectors in some schools in Britain for the detection of knives as a failure of gun control. Of course, as we all know, such measures are completely unknown in America, so lack of gun control clearly works.
  • Contest 4 hasn't even been judged, and Andy already considers CONTEST FIVE! Of course, it's because his team got pwned in C4 (as far as anyone can tell) and he wants a rematch!
Update: Andy shows just what a sore loser he is.
  • And around we go again! (Shortest unblock period yet. Conflict of interest much Fox? Not that this is new for you.)
  • Once again teh gays are triumphant!
  • For sheer bloody nonsense it's hard to beat Andy,and it's all his own work. You gotta admit, though, this response by Andy is pretty funny.
  • Hey atheists, you have no absolute moral standards so stop making excuses while I insult you.
  • OCD I haz it. I haz it bad!
  • Is this comment by HelpJazz a criticism of the NY Times or a subtle dig at CP's breaking news section? It's honestly hard to tell.
  • How to make 15 points: Take a FindLaw article, search for a snippet (starts with "Well into the 18th century..."), then just stretch, pad, and rephrase it a little bit (Rule of thumb: If I only need two Google queries to pinpoint your source, you're doing it wrong). Ta-da, a Quality New Article - and it's not completely copied!
  • It's the last stretch of the contest, and it looks like Andy might lose! You know what that means. Time to announce that he'll challenge the other team's contributions.
  • Behold! The heavens part, and brimstone and fire... hail down onto TK, who gets a 1-year ban for bullying. And what happened this time? This happened.
  • Thank you sir, may I have another? Please, do me!
  • Talk nicely, or else!
  • But wait - I thought newspaper reading was a BAD thing?
  • Andy's Death question: have we exploited someone's death to make a cheap political point? Yes we Have
  • Good call Phil, God knows that right wing people never disrupt and threaten things they don't like while protesting
  • Wikipedia's liberal bias is censoring an bigoted neologism
  • Conservative is back! He starts an article about atheism and Christianity which, at current date, tells us, "there are books out there on this topic." Thanks, Ken! Update: Some quotes on atheism are so famous, they deserve their very own article!
  • The best way to defend free speech is to attack protesters who don't want to give an anti-semite a speaking platform.
  • Jenkins manages to flood the Recent Changes without lifting a finger: This comment led to this sysop edit orgy. UPDATE: the clusterf#&k continues.
  • Barak Obama (sic), "affirmative action African American." UPDATE: MakeTomorrow, our bill is in the mail. You missed the misspelling of Obama's first name, though. Get it together. UPDATE: Someone else was reading along too
  • I'm sure there is a completely rational explanation why Andy is now the only contestant with access to the Judges namespace - you know, other than "I want to make sure that my team wins this time"
  • Damnit - Iduan might be staying [1] Update: Someone with 1500 less edits tell him to "keep up the good work" that sysopship will come "sooner or later." Five will get you two it's "later".
  • Jimmy added a short list of prominent abolitionists to the slavery article. One of the web sites cited links to this, citing Elizur Wright, an atheist abolitionist. (Doesn't the CP main page have a note about how Dinesh D'Souza denies that atheists opposed slavery? But I digress.) The edit was deleted, with the comment that it was "copied from a hate site", and Jimmy gets permabanned for it. He was admittedly copying stuff rather than putting it in his own words, but he cited the web pages.
  • Ed Poor is cool now. Yo, street cred!
  • Ed Poor makes a plea for sources and references - that will be a first!
  • You women really need to keep your "berginas" out of the Marines UPDATE: HOLY $H!T, He's defending rapists now
  • It slices, it dices! Christianity was not only the deciding factor to introduce democracy and start off science, it also ended slavery! Coming up next: How Christianity was needed to develop cars and planes!
  • Throwing off the shackles of a tyrannical despot to form a new nation is a conservative ideal? Wha, huh!? Hint, be sure to scroll over for the "liberal" part
  • Andy, when does a massacre become statistically significant? Maybe deaths as a result of massacres need to be 95% of all deaths in a year before they become significant? As an added bonus, Andy explains why all real Conseratives agree with him about everything.
  • Despite Andy himself being an editor of the Harvard Law Review, when Barack was president, it was a liberal rag.
  • Oh noes! Hillary is a bad person because an advisor broke the law. (Don't you want a President of the entire nation who can't even pick a sober campaign advisor? I know I do!) Librul deceit in delaying the release of info too!
  • Some strong points made in this discussion: Opposing the Pope's visit makes you an atheist, communist, or both.
  • Making every reference to gun control a wiki-link in your comment makes your point even more valid.
  • Hard to get upload rights? Who says! PhilipRayment proves it is only a matter of who you ask. Or is that who asks for you? Update: the uploaded image tells much.
  • What is Karajou advocating?
  • "Breaking News" 39 years ago....
  • The homosexual counter-attack has finally pushed Adolf Hitler from CP's top ten most viewed pages.
  • Isn't this the same guy who said Obama was an affirmative action candidate?.... Let's see: yes, yes,and yes
  • Juno, a movie which makes fun of the pro-life movement and glorifies the individual, freely-made choice to keep a pregnancy, is apparently somehow still a pro-life movie. Thanks, Bethany, for that intriguing misinterpretation. Granted, if the movie started with an abortion, it probably wouldn't have been nearly as interesting without its central plot element.
  • RIP Iduan.
  • Rules, rules, rules. On the one hand, people get a 1-day block for adding a much-needed fact-tag to Andy's idiotic claim. On the other hand, sysops spell-check and wikify or de-wikify other people's comments at will.
  • "New user" asks Fox uncomfortable questions about whether BrianCo and an RW member are his socks, with predictable results...
  • TK's triumphant return to Conservapedia will be postponed for at least one more month. Maybe there's hope for accountability after all... UPDATE: The recidivist gets a reminder. Do I hear "Proposition 184", anybody?
  • Have you ever seen someone blocked for 90/10 after one edit?
  • A Tolkien fanboy takes on the Assflynator, and reports him to the Administrative abuse page! We know this can only end one way... how long will this Naz'gul last? UPDATE: blockified!
  • Christians who support the ACLU might not be Christians. We really can't be sure. Same thing goes for Bill Clinton.
  • Who knew that milk could make so many products?
    Update: Including delicious and nutritious quark!!!
    Further Update You're welcome, HelpJazz.
  • Sometimes, a single edit would be enough for two or more WIGO entries: Case in point. Liberals almost got Ed's friend killed! They are the "party of death"! And it's a darn shame that we aren't allowed to discriminate against non-white people just because we got a "funny feeling" about them.
  • Ed is against mindless copy-pasting! Oh noes, how long will it take for Andy to deliver a furious counter-attack? ...and why did Ed start designing a copy-paste bot...?
  • Many non-YECs edit on CP - sure, just like not everybody on CP is against gun control, abortion, homosexuality, or atheism: They're allowed to edit as long as they accept that their point of view is completely incorrect and that they will pretty much rot in Hell for not believing exactly what Andy does.
  • Andy also doesn't like it when evil liberals choose names that imply a certain amount of... well... wisdom. Apparently, the only acceptable liberal names are "DumbAsBread" and "Idiots-R-Us".
  • Andy doesn't like it when people point out that the precious Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (magazine of the AAPS, where Andy acts as "general counsel") isn't quite as awesome as he claims it is.
    Update: Reverted again, followed by a block and user talk page deletion. Update 2: [QUACK QUACK QUACK].
  • Andy himself was the source of the criticism of himself. Wikipedia should give him just the credit he deserves.
  • We don't take kindly to gender equality here. Note that one edit earned a five year block.
    Update - Iduan undid his block, and apologized [2]
  • The Greeks knew about many things, including modern cities. P.S. There is more than one paradox. P.P.S. the sum is written as products of 2 rather than powers of 2.
  • Computers - not used in business, science, industry or the Arts. Not really used for anything much since 1833 when they were invented.
  • More CP what-the-fuckery. Assfly and the Trusworthy Conservative Encyclopedia come to the rescue of baby shakers. What's next? Bunny stompers?
    Update: Sergeant Schultz, the voice of reason. Any bets as to how long his edits to the Assfly's latest cause celebre last?
    Update: his edits were up there for about one hour, before Aschlafly improved perverted the content. Next up "Digested Baby Syndrome" to be proven a hoax.
