If you’re interested in music, or cartoons, or games, Conservapedia isn’t the place to look. You see, it’s far more important for them to write about Gay Bowel Syndrome and Obama being a Muslim atheist, than actually creating content that could serve as a quick reference point, much like their arch-enemy Wikipedia does.
Indeed, it got the point where Schlafly’s right-hand man, Terry Koeckritz, took it upon himself to delete any and all related articles for being “pop culture” and hence not worthy of being on the encyclopaedia. Which makes perfect sense really, seeing as it’s more of a right-wing hate blog anyway.
So imagine my surprise when I come across two animes from that nasty, liberal, multi-cultural Japan lurking on Conservapedia. Surely this must be some kind of mistake? How did they escape the purge? Well, let’s see what makes them special.
First up, we have “Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon.” Yes I know – real high-brow stuff. Still at least the line about “love-starved Japanese schoolgirls” has been removed.
Next up, we have “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind” which is slightly more informative than PSSM -which isn’t saying much – you certainly won’t learn anything about the film by reading the synopsis.
So, how on earth did these two escape the Wrath of TK -and the attentions resident parodist DouglasA(dams)? Well, having a look at the article histories is illuminating. It would appear as if PSSM is the creation of Ed Poor (and hence the “love-starved schoolgirls” reference is explained), whilst Nausicaa is the creation of everybody’s favourite swabbie, Brian Macdonald, aka Karajou – both of whom are administrators of the site, and thus untouchable.
So it is very much a case of one rule for the administrators and another for the peons. But we knew that all along.
