The politically correct commissars at Wikipedia have succeeded in disappearing The People’s Cube, the best conservative satire site in America.

The site’s reference page at Wikipedia was deleted today. This is part of a disturbing trend in the world of social media. Non-leftist views are marginalized, and whenever possible, erased.

This kind of thing happens all the time at Wikipedia, an open-source online encyclopedia. Wikipedia may be fine on non-controversial subjects, like how King Henry VIII treated his wives or Charlemagne’s military campaigns in the Italian peninsula in the 8th century after the birth of Christ.

But digital despots guard pages that deal with political controversies and routinely censor views with which they don’t agree. That’s what happened here — and it’s a perfect illustration of why you should never ever ever donate any money to Wikipedia which has its hand out all the time.

What’s unique about The People’s Cube (website link) is that it is written as if it were a media organ of the late Soviet Communist state. Even its graphics are Stalinist — and I mean that in the best possible way.

People’s Cube founder Oleg Atbashian, an actual former propagandist from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, suspects it all started when a leftist complained to Wikipedia in the hope of having the reference page erased from history.

The Left has won, at least for now.

The People’s Cube Wikipedia has been replaced, sadly, by a talk page:

Here is Atbashian’s statement on the deletion:

The People’s Cube entry has just been deleted from Wikipedia. Congratulations, comrades. We are now officially a non-site populated by non-persons sharing non-thoughts and making non-jokes. Right now I feel pretty much the way I felt while living in the USSR where an invisible hand obstructed any of my efforts to manifest my existence.

First the Wiki-prog-editors defaced it by removing all the valid content and references, leaving only disparaging language. Then they voted to delete it altogether because there was no valid content and references left.

See the previous thread about how it happened here.

I know it’s only Wikipedia and we still have our site, but this is a trend typical of Google and social media, let alone the MSM.

The Wiki-progs started by vandalizing the TPC page by rewriting and removing the language, claiming that it had been disjointed and confrontational. When our volunteers offered a better version, the Wiki-progs blocked it for a phony “copyright infringement” because my bio was copied from a now defunct website (Moonbat Central, an old David Horowitz project). When that was taken care of, they started claiming that there were no valid references from “reliable third-party sources,” while at the same time removing all existing references to sites like the American Thinker and others, because they represented some right-wing fringe. E.g., they removed Thomas Lifson’s, Michelle Malkin’s, and Rush Limbaugh’s quotes about the Cube on that premise.

In other words, their excuses kept changing while the goal to do us harm remained the main focus. It’s similar to how the Soviet media treated Solzhenitsyn, turning him into an non-person. If Wikipedia existed back then, these guys would have rephrased and deleted everything on Solzhenitsyn’s page, reducing it to one line: “Ex-convict, traitor to the Motherland, wrote anti-communist lies.” And then, because it failed to establish notability, they would have deleted the page altogether.

But the fight is not yet over.

To quote a mock People’s Cube hero, Ernesto “Che” Guevara: ¡Hasta la Victoria Siempre!
