When you're a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. When you're an Antifa-supporter, every opponent looks like a fascist.

After how the GamerGate debacle went down, have you ever wondered how far biased Wikipedia editors would go to protect the individuals, causes, and groups they support? Well, wonder no longer! Thanks to GamerGate supporter and former Wikipedia editor T.D. Adler (a.k.a. The Devil's Advocate), we now know that it extends to censoring murder, as the Antifia-sympathetic have attached wheels to the goalposts when it comes the killing of Aaron Danielson by Antifa member Michael Reinoehl and tried to keep the incident out of pages pertaining to the organization using a variety of tactics, including:

  • defaming the victim, Danielson, as a "fascist"
  • arguing that the killer was unidentified and that mere suspects and their alleged actions didn't merit inclusion unless they were formally charged
  • after he was formally charged, claiming that Reinoehl wasn't a member of any Antifa-affilated organization because he denied being one in the Vice News interview, so it was not significant enough to merit inclusion because he was merely a "Antifa supporter" or "antifacist activist" rather than a full-fledged Antifa member
  • making the ridiculous argument that mentioning an Antifa supporter's crimes would be akin to listing killer by name on their affiliated political parties' pages
  • falling back on claims that Wikipedia being careful about making controversial claims about living people also extended to the recently deceased
  • creating an article on Reinoehl's death that initially barely mentioned his victim at all
