Conservapedia is a wiki written from an American conservative point of view. The website was launched on November 21, 2006 by American homeschool teacher and attorney Andrew Schlafly, son of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, to counter what he perceived as a "liberal bias present in Wikipedia". It uses editorials and a wiki-based system to generate content.

The site has received negative reactions from the mainstream media and notable political figures. It has been criticized by liberal and conservative critics alike for numerous bias and inaccuracies.

Why It's Rotten

  1. Conservapedia barely counts as a wiki, as it contains numerous far-fetched claims such as the Earth being 6,000 years old. This trait is shared with its regressive-left counterparts.
  2. They use a literal interpretation of the Bible, when as far back as Roman times the Book of Genesis was taken metaphorically.
    • Not only that, but they also seem to take verses from the Bible all out of context.
  3. Many dubious or outright anti-science claims, besides the aforementioned earth age claim, they also consider E=mc2 as liberal claptrap and claim there's a proven link between abortion and breast cancer.
  4. They are also overly pro-Christianity and attempt to base most of their far-fetched claims on Christian dogma.
  5. They are strongly biased against liberals, seen as how they try to define many real-life villains such as Joseph Stalin and even Adolf Hitler as liberals.
    • Schlafly himself seems to believe that all liberals are SJWs, stating that they "reject logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons". This quote originally appeared on the liberal page but has since been removed.
    • They call even the most conservative Democrats liberal, despite some of them supporting Donald Trump.
    • Speaking of which, they are extremely defensive of Donald Trump and deny any of his flaws.
  6. Being very pro-Christianity means that they are also heavily biased against atheists, claiming that atheism is inseparable with issues such as anger, arrogance, narcissism, cowardice, immaturity, psychological disorders, lack of IQ or EQ, mass murder, slavery, and just about any unpleasant thing one can think of.
    • They're also pretty Islamophobic as they call Islam a socio-political system instead of a religion.
  7. Like how SJWs constantly bash Trump, Conservapedia members also frequently bash Democrats such as Barack Obama (who, according to them, is secretly Muslim) and Hillary Clinton, and literally treats the Democratic Party as simultaneous Communists AND Fascists.
  8. Homophobia. We do not mean it by simply disagreeing with queers; they actually defended Brandon McInerney who fatally shot his gay classmate. [1]
    • They also believe that being a gay conservative is an oxymoron.
  9. Also, they hate video games because they consider it atheism and other bad health problems.
  10. Even movies and television are not safe from their corruption. They will like a movie or a TV show if it has conservative elements (having traditional family values, respecting Christianity, pro-military, pro-police, etc.) and hate a movie or show if it has liberal elements (feminism, environmentalism, gay rights, nihilism, disrespecting religion, anti-war, anti-cop, teaching the theory of evolution, etc.).
  11. They think Nazism and Fascism are left-wing which is false, as they are far-right ideologies that are hostile to any left-winger.
    • Speaking of Fascism, they called them "big government" which that statement is subjective.
    • Speaking of far-right, they believe that part of the political spectrum is anarcho-capitalism, a free market, anti-state ideology.
    • On the subject of the alt-right, they try to whitewash it as much as possible.
  12. They think facts are arrogant.
  13. They once had a feud with Secular Talk, known as Kyle Kulinski, claiming that he's an ultra toxic illegal immigrant atheist extremist liberal far-leftist, causing a flame war affairs with him and had some vandalism on Kulinski's page.[2] Regardless, Conservapedia claimed their victory.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. It can give insight on how some alt-right Americans think.

The main reason why they think Nazism is Left Wing is because most Conservative (That are not Alt-Righters) are Pro-Jewish and they think Nazism is far-left just because the Nazi party full name was National "Socialist" "Workers" Party.
