'Natural-born citizen' targeted in more Web sanitizing!

Posted on WND.com-By Steve Peacock-On May 2, 2011:

Wikipedia has undergone further sanitizing of the philosophical underpinnings of what it means to be a “natural born Citizen” as the Constitution requires for U.S. presidents, the latest in an ongoing “edit war” at the online encyclopedia.

In the most recent development, an unnamed “editor” deleted in its entirety a section of a Wikipedia entry for Swiss legal philosopher Emmerich de Vattel, whom Founding Fathers such as Benjamin Franklin have credited for his influence on early American policy formation

The deleted segment, titled “USA Constitution,” had included a reference to de Vattel’s 1757 treatise “The Law of Nations,” which defined natural-born citizenship as “those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.”

The now-removed section also had noted the U.S. Constitution’s use of the phrase “the law of nations.”

Wikipedia’s de Vattel entry likewise paired the phrase with the philosopher’s citizenship definition followed by the Constitution’s overall candidate requirements for the presidency.

According to an auto-generated Revision History accompanying the entry, the anonymous editor deleted the USA Constitution section on May 2.

This modification follows a recent, related deletion of references to de Vattel, as WND reported May 1, from a general Wikipedia entry on “natural-born citizenship.”

The editor justified changing the separate, de Vattel entry with this brief explanation: “Removed misformatted section, misapplying a quote to provide NPOV support to birtherism.”

The acronym NPOV, according to Wikipedia’s own definition, is “Neutral point of view ‘NPOV’ (journalism), a stance or tone that i...

The person who changed the listing sought additional affirmation for his or her decision, inserting in the Revision History page the extra comment, “Moderator support requested.”

That same editor first modified the de Vattel entry on April 30, denouncing the paired inclusion of constitutional presidency requirements and references to de Vattel as “a naked attempt to validate Birtherism (and therefore NPOV)…”

A request made to Wikipedia for comment on this process was not answered as of press time.

The back-and-forth process of deleting and re-inserting the same information has been a source of angst for some of Wikipedia’s volunteer citizen-editors.

Indeed, one commenter on the history revision page exhorted participants to cease this information – or disinformation – campaign with the simple cry: “Let’s stop this edit war.”

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
