They wouldn’t want people knowing the truth… Wikipedia has an article on just about anything. They are practically an online encyclopedia. The articles are peer-reviewed and people can question the validity of them to ensure everything is on the up and up. But in this case, some leftists are trying to get rid of articles that point out how communist leaders have committed genocide in the past. They don’t like that communism is getting a bad name from these murderers who were communists.
“Wikipedia is considering deleting a page about the mass killings committed by communist regimes throughout the 20th century over claims of bias.
The page titled “Mass killings under communist regimes,” which details the atrocities of dictators like Stalin, Mao Zedong and Pol Pot, risks being purged from the online encyclopedia after editors complained it did not conform to company standards.
A warning on the page currently states, “This article is being considered for deletion in accordance with Wikipedia’s deletion policy. Please share your thoughts on the matter at this article’s deletion discussion page.”
Another warning on the page states, “This article has multiple issues,” including that its “neutrality” and verifiability of claims is being disputed, and that some sources in the article “may not be reliable.”
One proponent of deleting the page wrote on Wikipedia’s discussion page that “the view that the ideology of communism is somehow inherently violent” is a “fringe theory” that pushes an “anti-communist” point of view.”
“Some editors pushed back in arguing against the article’s deletion.
One editor who opposes deletion wrote Thursday that deleting the article “would be truly Orwellian” and that “it’s very nomination for deletion is a political act attempting to whitewash Communism.”
“Stop left and woke censorship,” another opponent wrote.”
These Leftists clearly are trying to polish communism’s image by getting this article taken down, and it should stay up. We need to learn from history or risk repeating it.
