Skip to comments.Wikipedia scrubs Obama eligibility
Posted on 03/08/2009 4:53:35 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar
Wikipedia, the online "free encyclopedia" mega-site written and edited entirely by its users, has been deleting within minutes any mention of eligibility issues surrounding Barack Obama's presidency, with administrators kicking off anyone who writes about the subject, WND has learned.
A perusal through Obama's current Wikipedia entry finds a heavily guarded, mostly glowing biography about the U.S. president. Some of Obama's most controversial past affiliations, including with Rev. Jeremiah Wright and former Weathermen terrorist Bill Ayers, are not once mentioned, even though those associations received much news media attention and served as dominant themes during the presidential elections last year.
Also completely lacking is any mention of the well-publicized concerns surrounding Obama's eligibility to serve as commander-in-chief.
Where's the proof Barack Obama was born in the U.S. or that he fulfills the "natural-born American" clause in the Constitution? If you still want to see it, join more than 300,000 others and sign up now!
Indeed, multiple times, Wikipedia users who wrote about the eligibility issues had their entries deleted almost immediately and were banned from re-posting any material on the website for three days.

“Ayers, Wright also missing in Obama’s bio
The entire Wikipedia entry on Obama seems to be heavily promotional toward the U.S. president. It contains nearly no criticism or controversy, including appropriate mention of important issues where relevant.
For example, the current paragraph on Obama’s religion contains no mention of Wright, even though Obama’s association with the controversial pastor was one of the most talked about issues during the presidential campaign.”
Liberals-champions of the First Amendment.
The libs have been trying to clean everything up.
About a week ago I tried to find racist Wrights “G-D America” video on youtube.... it’s “no longer available”.
We should put insert that phrase in for the definition of Wikipedia
Wikipedia=the socialist teaching aid....
As a teacher I do not allow my students to use wikipedia as a resource. Now I can see even more clearly what a good move that has been. Dominating the media and what is available for the public to learn is a natural step for the marxists and leninists in our government and their supporters.
Maybe we need to have a “truth squad” add some new entries such as obama depression, obama kenyan-in-chief, etc. Can’t 2 play the scrub game?!
Winston works for Wikipedia!
Yep, that’s the way history gets rewritten by the corrupt powers in charge. Just a first that will occur. Hope there’s the equivalent of Wiki out there that still displays the facts.
Wikipedia is okay for non-controversial subjects, but is completely worthless for anything political or controversial. If the site was worth a damn they’d include all the information and only “scrub” that which is reckless or provably false. I know, there are exceptions to the rule and the obvious question of “who decides?” would come into play, but ... no mention at all about his missing BC?!? That’s blatantly garbage!
try Michelle Malkin’s site
Well how are judges and senators going to know what to say when asked about the eligibility issue if wiki isn’t there to tell them?
Wiki is utterly worthless for ANY topic involving any sort of controversy. That’s old news.
The vids who lean right usually head to Live leak, created by a rightwing guy. Youtube is part of Google, and we all know that Google staff helped the Obama campaign...
