Epic stupidity. Not mentioned on any noticeboard, only on the talkpage (so far). You can be damned sure the WMF will have no public comment about this.

No one noticed that one of the admins involved here is Masem, that massive middle-aged brony creature......

Don't forget this magical squabble from 2016:

I think that the Trump debate on Wikipedia has now exceeded 3 million words, possibly more if you include AfD's. :roll:

I mean, it's moronic they even thinks there is anything to discuss it. It just shows how dumb they are, and yet pieces like this always seem to stop short of pointing that out.

Glenn Greenwald summed it up perfectly, in the review of the new Michael Moore documentary-thing:

https://theintercept.com/2018/09/21/mic ... -his-rise/

Quote:
Personalizing and isolating Trump as the principal, even singular, source of political evil is obfuscating and thus deceitful. By effect, if not design, it distracts the population’s attention away from the actual architects of their plight.

This now-dominant framework misleads people into the nationalistic myth – at once both frightening and comforting – that prior to 2016’s “Fahrenheit 11/9,” the U.S., though quite imperfect and saddled with “flaws,” was nonetheless a fundamentally kind, benevolent, equitable and healthy democracy, one which, by aspiration if not always in action, welcomed immigrants, embraced diversity, strove for greater economic equality, sought to defend human rights against assaults by the world’s tyrants, was governed by the sturdy rule of law rather than the arbitrary whims of rulers, elected fundamentally decent even if ideologically misguided men to the White House, and gradually expanded rather than sadistically abolished opportunity for the world’s neediest.

But suddenly, teaches this fairy tale as ominous music plays in the background, a villain unlike any we had previously known invaded our idyllic land, vandalized our sacred public spaces, degraded our admired halls of power, threatened our collective values. It was only upon Trump’s assumption of power that the nation’s noble aspirations were repudiated in favor of a far darker and more sinister vision, one wholly alien to “Who We Are”: a profoundly “un-American” tapestry of plutocracy, kleptocracy, autocracy, xenophobia, racism, elite lawlessness, indifference and even aggressive cruelty toward the most vulnerable and marginalized.

This myth is not just false but self-evidently so. Yet it persists, and thrives, because it serves so many powerful interests at once. Most importantly, it exonerates, empowers, and elevates the pre-Trump ruling class, now recast as heroic leaders of the #Resistance and nostalgic symbols of America’s pre-11/9 Goodness.

The lie-fueled destruction of Vietnam and Iraq, the worldwide torture regime, the 2008 financial collapse and subsequent bailout and protection of those responsible for it, the foreign kidnapping and domestic rounding up of Muslims, the record-setting Obama-era deportations and whistleblower prosecutions, the obliteration of Yemen and Libya, the embrace of Mubarak, Sisi, and Saudi despots, the years of bipartisan subservience to Wall Street at everyone else’s expense, the full-scale immunity vested on all the elites responsible for all those crimes – it’s all blissfully washed away as we unite to commemorate the core decency of America as George Bush gently hands a piece of candy to Michelle Obama at the funeral of the American War Hero and Trump-opponent-in-words John S. McCain, or as hundreds of thousands of us re-tweet the latest bromide of Americana from the leaders of America’s most insidious security state, spy and police agencies.

And I highly doubt you will see any of that openly discussed or posted anywhere on Wikipedia. For, hey, face it: Wikipedia is a Creature Of The Media Landscape. Locked in perpetual mutual codependency with "the MSM" and especially Google, the ultimate media monstrosity. Even if they don't admit as much, journalists use Wikipedia constantly to "check facts".

My god oh god, DiD YOU KNOW THE TRUMP ARTICLE ON WP IS A BATTLEZONE?

https://slate.com/technology/2019/05/do ... e_taps_top

Yet another ignorant journalist thinks WP is "run by reasonable people" and such.

Quote:
The dynamic on Trump’s page may be a relentless, exhausting tug of war. But in this context, disagreement—even heated, churlish, insult-hurling disagreement—is often not ultimately a bad thing. This might be the most surprising thing about the Wikipedia page for Donald Trump: The angriest squabbling usually ends in some form of grudging consensus. “When, on the same article, you’ve got a group of editors who say, ‘This is absolutely biased one way,’ and you have another bunch of editors who say, ‘This is absolutely biased the other way,’ ” JFG told me, “that’s when you’re correct.”
And this is utter shit--"consensus" on Wikipedia is usually manufactured by whoever has the most powerful administrators supporting them. Plain and simple.

I would try to offer Aaron Mak a copy of the book-wiki notes, but I doubt he will even pay attention.
