More Conservapedia

I was going to write a blog in defence of Miyuu Sawai, but I thought I'd save that for later (and get you wondering just who the hell Miyuu Sawai is) and instead continue, as promised, with my coverage of Conservapedia.

Since Miyuu Sawai is an actress (honest, she is!) and since conservatives just hate those "Celebrity Activists", those "Limosine Liberals", those "George Clooneys", I thought I'd look up entries on a few prominent A-list lefites:

George Clooney: Nothing
Susan Sarandon: Nichts
Tim Robbins: Nada
Barbara Streisand: Nope
Robert Altman: Empty
Jennifer Aniston: Vacant
Ed Asner: Blank
Alec Baldwin: Gone
Joy Behar: Nothing (but then, I've heard nothing of her either)
Harry Belafonte: The Invisible Man (oooooh! burn!)
Sandra Bernhardt: Nothing
Geroge Carlin, Cher, David Clennon, John Cusack, Ani DeFranco, Dixie Chicks, Jane Fonda. . . : And I finally got tired of looking.

The list of names above, apart from the first few that I drew from the top of my head, were taken from the website Celiberal, a right-wing website dedicated to
present[ing] all those Hollywood celebrity liberals (hence, celiberal) that have nothing better to do than complain about America, our President, and the brave men and women defending our way of life.

The names above are all certified Godless Hollywood commies, and yet Con'pedia has nothing on 'em.

I wonder what would happen if. . .

Arnold Schwartzenegger: Nothing. Dammit!

What kind of a conservative biased encyclopedia is this? Man, I'm almost desperate enough to try. . .

Miyuu Sawai: Nothing.

Crap. Well, Hollywood liberals were a dead end. But what about one of the philosophical fathers of Liberalism, John Locke:

Englishman John Locke (1632-1704) was the leading political philosopher during the Enlightenment, whose ideas helped the American colonists form a new government. Locke described society as a contract between individuals called the "social contract", and held that the formation of collectives by individuals was the only way to ensure economic prosperity (see his Second Treatise on Government). Locke’s view helped lay the foundation for the constitutional government that we use in the United States, though unfortunately the Founding Fathers do not appear to have read chapter IV of the Second Treatise. Locke had built on the prior work of Englishmen Francis Bacon and Thomas Hobbes.

Chapter IV, by the way, was about slavery, particularly about slavery being the bad.

Speaking of the bad, this blog entry has not been nearly as entertaining as I had hoped it would be. If you want to curse me for wasting your time, feel free. At least I'm updating my blog, Nay. Prick.

I liked it, but then again, I've had a fever over 102 for the past few days so...
