    Want a place where you can gain a full understanding of any topic, from any perspective? Then Wikipedia is not the place for you. The editors who canít seem to prevent the California GOP from being listed as Nazis on their platform have decided that Breitbart canít be used as a source or reference. One editor wrote, ďI think that Breitbart is not a reliable source. Itís my view that we should not source anything to Breitbart other than strictly factual and uncontroversial facts about Breitbart on the articles related to Breitbart and its people.Ē In a post announcing the...

    Capitol Police on October 3 arrested 27-year old congressional staffer Jackson Cosko for posting on Wikipedia the private addresses of three members of the Senate Judiciary Committeeówhatís known as ďdoxxingĒ (a word derived from the shorthand for ďdocumentĒ). Cosko is facing serious charges that include illegally posting private information of public figures, witness tampering, threats, identity theft, and unlawful entry. In the mainstream media, Cosko is being portrayed as a hapless overzealous intern who didnít even have the smarts to cover up his criminal act. His former bossó Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) has denied she knew anything about Coskoís activities....

    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said on Sunday that his wife received a graphic text message with video of a beheading shortly after he voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Gardner told Fox News That his wife received the threatening message on Saturday, just hours after the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh on a 50-48 vote. The Colorado Republican also said someone posted the names and addresses of his family members online. Gardner is the latest GOP lawmaker to be targeted with the intimidation tactic known as ďdoxxingĒ in recent weeks. Jackson Cosko, a former Democratic aide, was arrested last week...

    Wikipedia pretends to be a new kind of ¬†crowd-sourced, non-profit ‚Äúpeople‚Äôs encyclopedia‚ÄĚ containing fair and unbiased material.¬† In theory, anyone is allowed to edit material, thus providing a wide range of input rather than one expert‚Äôs ideas as in conventional encyclopedias. I have written one entire entry, on my great-grandfather, who was a candidate for president. I have edited a few other entries to correct errors. The theory is great, but in practice Wikipedia, like most media ventures, is a vehicle for liberal ideas. Two examples may suffice: The Wikipedia entry on fascism follows the liberal line that the...

    Heartless people just doxxed Orrin Hatch while he was speaking and his poor wife has been receiving calls nonstop ON HER BIRTHDAY and their home address was made public. This is how low they will go. Absolutely disgusting. Update: Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, and Mike Lee were all targeted and doxxed with their information published on Wikipedia while they were speaking during the Kavanaugh hearing. A source I just spoke with explained Orrin's wife has been receiving nonstop calls and it's her birthday.

    Jackson Cosko, who calls himself a ďDemocratic Political ProfessionalĒ with cybersecurity expertise, is accused of crimes for allegedly doxing Republican Senators during the Brett Kavanaugh/Christine Blasey Ford hearings. The United States Capitol Police arrested the suspect who allegedly ďposted private, identifying information (doxing) about one of more United States Senators to the internet,Ē a statement said. According to Legistorm, he worked for U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and previously worked for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA). A September 2018 letter from Sheila Jackson Lee (D -TX) identifies him as a staffer for her office.

    Republican Senators Lee, Graham and Hatch were doxxed on Wikipedia on Thursday. There is nothing too low for the left. Many Republicans on the Senate Judiciary had their home addresses and phone numbers published on their Wikipedia pages Thursday. Shortly after Lindsey Graham went off on Senate Democrats for destroying Kavanaughís life in order to derail his confirmation, Republicans were doxxed. The victims included Republican Senators Mike Lee, Orrin Hatch of Utah and Lindsey Graham, reported the Washington Times. According to Caleb Hull, editor of the Independent Journal Review, the wife of Mr. Hatch ďhas been receiving calls nonstop ON...

    YouTube is now adding fact checks to videos that question climate change, BuzzFeed News has confirmed, as a part of its ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspiratorial fodder on its platform. On July 9, the company added a blurb of text underneath some videos about climate change, which provided a scientifically accurate explainer. The text comes from the Wikipedia entry for global warming and states that "multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming." This new feature follows YouTubeís announcement in March that it would place descriptions from Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica next...

  • "Nazism" as per wikipedia

    08/15/2017 7:52:22 AM PDT · by bryan999 · 25 replies
    National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ňąn…Ďňźts…™z…ôm, ňąn√¶-/[1]), is the ideology and set of practices associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party, Nazi Germany, and other far-right groups. Sometimes characterised as a form of fascism that incorporates scientific racism and antisemitism, Nazism's development was influenced by German nationalism (especially Pan-Germanism), the V√∂lkisch movement and the anti-communist Freikorps paramilitary groups that emerged during the Weimar Republic after Germany's defeat in First World War.
