Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 22, 2014

For the third time this summer, computers in the House of Representatives have been blocked from editing Wikipedia due to a string of controversial edits. Anonymous users operating from an IP address linked to the House were banned from editing the site for a month late on Wednesday. The action came after a series of offensive edits people using the IP address made to pages on the user-generated encyclopedia about transgender people. The final straw came on Wednesday afternoon, when someone from the House edited the page for the Netflix hit show Orange is the New Black to change the characterization of an actor from "a real transgender woman" to "a real man pretending to be a woman."

"There's nothing illegal about editing Wikipedia to promote official business that has been explicitly authourized [sic] by the Representative," someone working in the House wrote in a dispute this week over some of the changes.

"When you have other Representatives trying to push for laws such as [the Employment Non-Discrimination Act], or when you have the [European Union] using neocolonialist methods to impose transgenderism on the nation of Georgia through a visa agreement, it's all the more important."

Can anybody tell me why trans-gender neocolonialists are pushing their agenda on the nation of Georgia?

I sure there is a ------ in the closet hoping the transgendered will succeed.

I really wonder why the NSA aren't on the case? Or, are they?!!

How difficult, really is it to track this IP to a desk, a timestamp and a person.

From within - easy.

From outside - not terribly much harder.

There are more that hate America because it fits their long lived agenda. Wikipedia is a machine of biased propaganda intended to maintain the PC info status quo, rather than providing accurate up to date info.

It would be interesting to disclose the actual IP and to whom it belongs.

"... the characterization of an actor from "a real transgender woman" to "a real man pretending to be a woman." "

A male who has transgendered to "female" still has XY chromosomes in every cell of her body. She IS pretending to be a female, due to a psychological identification. And i do not consider legitimate the victories a transgendered male may have in female athletics; that is cheating.

That being said, this WikiP vandal in or among Congress is a despicable jerk, because he IS a vandal operating under the cloak of anonymity.
