Battle of Athens, Tennessee (August 1-2, 1946) - landmark event in Human Rights and constitutional history in the United States - censored on Wikipedia


The Battle of Athens, where WWII veterans successfully conducted an armed rebellion against corrupt coutny government, is relevant to conditions across the United States today for numerous reasons. Wikipedia's censorship of the entry is not a unique case at all...

    Also, go to wikipedia and read up on the Federal Reserve. Never do they mention: 1. the owners, 2. that it is privately owned, 3. not a government organization and 4. exempt from government regulation or even audit.

  • The reason that this page was protected on Wikipedia is that people kept trying to come in and cut-and-paste information from other sources verbatim, which is a copyright violation. Wikipedia has to remove any offending material, and if contributors keep trying to add the copyrighted material back to the page, the page will be protected.

      Interesting explanation... Do you have any proof that that was the case?
      You take Wikipedia at their word...

      You can always do like a sensible person and look at the page history in Wikipedia, see where someone copied an article from another website word-for-word, see where this got flagged as plagiarism and revised, and see where people kept trying to add back in plagiarized material despite increasing levels of protection.

      This latest lockdown has been in just the last couple days. It looks like one admin in particular, Toddst1, has been responsible for the page. Has anyone tri More..

      I'm aware that there are a lot of problems of this sort with Wikipedia, but this seems much less like an attempt to create a slanted page than one to remove copyrighted material.

      Write up a well-sourced version of the Battle of Athens article that doesn't plagiarize anything. Submit it to the admins, and see what happens. Based on the fact that the same mod has been battling with this page and plagiarism for over a year and that there don't seem to be attempts to squash th More..

      1)If you review the history of that page, you would not find there any evidence that " the same mod has been battling with this page and plagiarism for over a year".

The examples provided here are only a few out of many. Instead, a reasonable person would conclude that Wikipedia ope More..
