  • Quote Unquote: On Conservamentalism

    A Reddit commenter named tedrick111 responds to some stupid thing or another that Conservapedia is trying to do now

    "I'm probably mincing terms more than you're interested in, but they're not conservatives. They're fundamentalists. They think they're conservatives because they got their notion of what America used to be like by watching Leave It to Beaver and other early family entertainment. Essentially, they have it in their heads that the USA used to be exactly like any small town (2000 people or less) is today, and was back then. Small towns rightfully don't encourage a lot of liberal ideas. They establish a working way of life chock full of xenophobia, racism, and strong religious beliefs simply because thinking is hard and they don't have to do it day-to-day.

    "The only time their notions about the world are challenged is when, say, black people or gays move in to town. This particular group is insulting real conservatism by calling themselves Conservapedia. The world needs a balance of conservatism and liberalism. The world does not need fundamentalism."

    This seems like a pretty reasonable point at first, but then if you think about it, it turns out this guy is just a fundamentalist about being anti-fundamentalism. But then, if you think about it more, it turns out that you're just a fundamentalist about being anti-fundamentally opposed to fundamentalism. And, after that, you enter the fundamentalism limbo state from which no person returns with his or her sanity intact.

    And, that, I think is the best explanation for Conservapedia's Andrew Schlafly.


    * Though, that name looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shopped names in my time.

  • Colbert Interviews Conservapedia Founder Andy Schlafly

    According to Wikipedia, "[t]he potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosum of the Solanaceae family (also known as the nightshades)." Disgusting, I know. Luckily, you don't have to subject your family or yourself to that liberally-biased filth now that we have Conservapedia, where you'll learn that, "[t]he potato is a tuber of Solanum tuberosum; it comes in many colors (brown, purple, red, white, etc.) and can be easily cooked by frying in oil, baking, or boiling." Last night, Stephen Colbert interviewed Conservapedia founder Andy Schlafly to thank him for cleansing our internets.

  • Colbert to Interview Conservapedia Founder Andrew Schlafly

    From The CC Insider

    Picture 29If you want to know what a pencil is or find out what the heck is in marmalade, but you want to be spared from reading about their uses for smoking Islamic pot and performing abortions at gay, atheist, flag-burning, estate-tax orgies, you don't go to liberally-biased Wikipedia, you go to Conservapedia. After all, it's the only online encyclopedia with the common sense to stay on the fence about the extinction of dinosaurs.

    Well, on next Tuesday's Colbert Report, Stephen will sit down for an interview with Andrew Schlafly, who is the founder of Conservapedia and not, as I first thought, the guy from Wham who's not George Michael.

    You can see a segment Stephen did in October about Conservapedia's attempt to remove the liberal media bias from The Bible over here.

    The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.
