Essay:Wikipedia's Ads-for-Charity

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Jimmy Wales has floated the idea of putting ads on Wikipedia®, ostensibly to raise money for the poor.

Wikipedia, however, is overwhelmingly dominated by liberals. Who would determine how money raised by ads is spent? Presumably the liberal majority would select the recipients.

Uh oh. Wikipedia editors probably support taxpayer funded abortion by a 3:1 margin. Liberal-controlled organizations are notorious for funneling charitable money to Planned Parenthood-type organizations. The United Nations does and the Packard Foundation do, for example. If conservative Wikipedia editors objected to spending advertising money on abortion, then I would expect the overwhelming majority of Wikipedians to reject that objection and allow it.

Of course, there are no ads on Wikipedia ... yet. But when ads are inevitably allowed, and money is raised "for the poor," let's not act surprised if some of that money funds abortions.
