RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Information icon.svg The 2018 moderator election has started! We are electing 6 moderators and 2 alternatives to serve in 2019. Nominate users here and read their campaign slogans here!

Liberal Logic 101 is a "comedic" religious right blog whose quality of humor reveals how low the bar has been set by the fringe right. The site's "jokes" are typically pictures of "liberals" (often stock images) and captions that use the straw man argument against "liberal" views. The site is more useful as a window into the weird logic of the American far-right than it is as a humor site. In other words, we're not laughing with you; we're laughing at you.

The ultimate twist of irony is that the blog insults the logic of "liberals" by posting memes with absolutely no sources. The memes are often made up and expect conservatives to believe them, which they often do.

Basic views[edit]

The website isn't too organized, but generally hews to a hard-right point of view. The site is:

Additionally, they claim that only idiots use Wikipedia or Snopes as a source.[15]

The war on straw[edit]

On top of being a hotbed of conspiracy theories, anything the site hates is labeled "liberal". This leads to some odd and paranoid assertions. Examples include:

Laziness[edit]

A lot of the newer posts are actually copies of old ones. Compare:

It is quite noticeable if one goes through the older posts before going through newer ones. In truth though, the whole site is lazy since it's typically intellectually dishonest half-truths being made out to be the "politically incorrect truth", a style so beaten that it's a dead horse by now.
