Quote# 70096

ElyseE, newspapers are the most liberal source of information possible, and are written at about the 7th grade level. I hope you get your information from better sources. I get my information from Conservapedia, and the internet at large

You get your information...from a site that you're in charge of, therefore making any information you "get" information that you either put there yourself or approved of.

Yeah, that makes SO much more sense than reading the New York Times.

The internet at large? That explains a lot.

Another village's idiot found the internets.

Because the internet "at large" is so reliable and written at such an intellectual level. Your site being a good example.

@ DevilsChaplain

It pays to actually read the quote in context. Not did he actually use punctuation, that wasn't even the end of the sentence.

I like to cite myself for maximum accuracy and validity, too.

In short, you make shit up and then claim it as fact. Okay, dude... whatever.`

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

Enclosed is a copy of the bill for my latest irony meter. If you would kindly sir, please send me a cashier's check or money order for the amount so that I may use the funds to replace the one your post broke.

Yeah, I can write anything and use it as my information, but that doesn't make it right.

Whereas Conservapedia is written at about a 2nd grade level...

"I get my information from MYSELF"

Thanks for admitting you're pulling all of this out of your own ass, Andy. As if we didn't already know.

Remember, this person exists. He is not a poe of any kind. He seriously believes in everything he says. I am not making this up.

Aren't you Andy Assfly? Basically, Conservapedia incarnate? Wouldn't we expect you to "get you information" from the propaganda-agency-cum-troubadour-troupe that you yourself edit apparently full-time?

2/8/2010 11:15:21 PM


From a high school project? Good for you, now let the grownups talk.

2/8/2010 11:18:51 PM

Nevermind that the internet isn't exactly the most reliable source of information, what with not actually having to do peer-reviews and fact-checking.

2/8/2010 11:23:43 PM


Scientific journals > Books > Newspapers > News networks > My grandma > Muck on the street > The internet

...when it comes to obtaining reliable information.

How come you only have liberal newspapers? Over here we have socialistic ones and conservative ones, environmentalist ones and yes, liberal ones as well. And they are most certainly not written at a 7th grade level.

In my experience, the "internet at large" is much more liberal and written at a much lower grade level.
Especially Conservapedia has a very low-grade, "big-lettered" text (the "more liberal" is not valid here, of course).

"and are written at about the 7th grade level. I hope you get your information from better sources. I get my information from Conservapedia"

"ElyseE, newspapers are the most liberal source of information possible,and are written at about the 7th grade level."

Yeah. Go fuck yourself Assfly.

Which am I going to believe? Newspapers, of which there are countless throughout the world, and which aside from their OP ED sections, present unbiased reporting and interviews, or a website on the internet that markets itself as the only trustworthy source because it's Conservative, and all the other media is controlled by teh eebil liberuls?

You are a horrible human being, Andy Schlafly. You shut down even your supporters when they're trying to support you.

Fuck, you're the John Byrne of the political 7th circle

2/9/2010 12:02:16 AM


So, Andy Schlafly gets his information from... Himself. Well, at least a news source that he has and frequently exercises editorial control on. That makes sense.

Though I fail to see why Newspapers being written to be legible at a seventh grade reading level discredits the content of the article. If he means to suggest that they have a seventh grade level of research, he is very wrong.

I'm beginning to see why ignorance is bliss. Knowing their are people this stupid in the world makes me very un-blissful.

2/9/2010 12:18:19 AM

That's a relief. It seldom ends well for people who start to believe their own hype. Will Shlafly die overweight, Elvis-style in a Las Vegas toilet, or will he go out in a blaze of "glory" like David Koresh? Stay tuned...

In related news, Andy Schlafly also told reporters that he eats his own poop "to get all the vitamins I missed the first time around."
