Conservapedia's message

I both understand and appreciate Conservapedia's efforts to create an encyclopedia from a conservative perspective, but doesn't mocking liberal publications for doing the same greatly undermine those principles? Acwellman 09:54, 6 June 2010 (EDT)

(original message:The sarcastic tone of your edit to the Sarah Palin article wasn't acceptable; you "praised" Palin in the article, but linked to a liberal website ridiculing her for the point (a site which you acknowledged was liberal here). Constructive edits are welcome here, but be mindful of what constructive means. We are constructing an encyclopedia from the conservative perspective. (Also, on a lighter note: please always review your edit after you've made it - you left out a start <ref> tag)--IDuan 12:23, 5 June 2010 (EDT))
We point out the flaws in the liberal perspective that those publications endorse. And that still doesn't explain you using a source criticizing Palin while praising Palin in the article.--IDuan 11:29, 6 June 2010 (EDT)

By no means did I ever acknowledge any political leanings that the Huffington Post might have had. Rather, I used Conservapedia's own opinion set forth in the website's article about the Huffington Post here, not my own personal beliefs about the website. In fact, I don't believe I even used the word "liberal" or anything connoting it in the above link. That one's on you.

Secondly, Palin doesn't deserve to be praised for much. I'm a fan of the old guard conservatives--Ronald Reagan, the Buckleys, the Goldwaters, Bush, Sr.. If the Conservative party is going to band together behind the likes of Palin, I'm not sure it's a party I want to adhere to anymore. And while the rebut may be that Conservapedia stands behind her, Conservapedians as a whole represent a mere fraction of the conservative intellectual population.

And in all honesty, I am appreciating the intellectual sparring match we are having.

I would like to amend the statement above about Palin not being deserved to be praised much. That was meant to address her faculties as a politician. I am impressed with the way she has handled the ups and downs in her own personal life. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Acwellman (talk) -- 09:10, 6 June 2010

Wikilawyer somewhere else, Acwellman. Is this the kind of "debate" Green Farms is teaching these days? You are no more conservative than John Kerry. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 12:44, 6 June 2010 (EDT)
Huffington Post is obviously a liberal source, even Wikipedia acknowledges it as so. I'm glad you've enjoyed the back-and-forth, but unfortunately debate isn't the reason I started the conversation. I started the conversation because you made a deceitful edit - using a source criticizing Palin while praising her in the text that you wrote, and that's not acceptable, and I think you know that. You have to be constructive here.--IDuan 13:08, 6 June 2010 (EDT)

Thank you for taking out the liberal trash. --Jpatt 10:57, 8 June 2010 (EDT)
