Back in 2005, we reported how the "online encyclopedia" called Wikipedia, run by leftists and anti-Semites, threw this blog off because we did not kowtow to their bitter leftwing agenda. Go on the site now, and try to edit - as they invite you to do - any one of their ridiculously biased articles, and see what happens. You get warned, your article is changed back, and then one of the Marxist robots throws you off. And you have no way to challenge them.
Now we find out that the scumpeddlers who run the site are removing all references to "terrorists" because that could describe Islamic nutjobs in a way that is not nice to them. And we know what leftists think of free speech.
Extremist, terrorist and freedom fighter
Extremism and terrorism are pejorative terms. They are words with intrinsically negative connotations that are generally applied to one's enemies and opponents, or to those with whom one disagrees and whose opinions and actions one would prefer to ignore. Use of the terms "extremist", "terrorist" and "freedom fighter" implies a moral judgment; and if one party can successfully attach the label to a group, then it has indirectly persuaded others to adopt its moral viewpoint.
In line with the Wikipedia Neutral Point of View policy, the words "Extremist", "Terrorist" and "Freedom fighter" should be avoided unless there is a verifiable citation indicating who is calling a person or group by one of those names in the standard Wikipedia format of "X says Y". In an article the words should be avoided in the unqualified "narrative voice" of the article.
So, we must not label terrorists, or extremists, or anyone else who is like that, because it implies "a moral judgment."
Yep - the left just keeps getting whackier each passing day.
