As Twitchy reported, The Federalist’s Sean Davis has been fact-checking some quotes by Neil deGrasse Tyson, including Tyson’s claim that George W. Bush in the days after 9/11 said that “Our God is the God who named the stars,” which Tyson explains was Bush’s way of segregating radical Islam from religions like Christianity or Judaism.

The problem, Davis reports, is that Bush uttered a similar but not identical phrase, and after the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger, not 9/11. Hot Air and others noted that Wikipedia editors seemed to refuse to allow any information about Tyson’s serial fabrications into the article about him.

Thursday, Davis noted that Wikipedia editors were hard at work on the “List of Wikipedia controversies” page.

Wikipedia isn't just deleting Neil Tyson facts en masse. It's also memory-holing any mention of this being a Wiki controversy.

For Tyson's fabrication allegedly not being a big deal, there sure are a lot of people invested in making sure nobody ever hears about it.

@seanmdav He's the new designated #AGWFraud/Cultural Science point man. They start making their political gains again if he's exposed.

@seanmdav Politics is downstream from culture & Tyson is all about pushing cultural science narratives in order to make political gains.

It took a Wikipedia editor only 15 minutes to censor the final passage on the "Wikipedia controversies" page. https://t.co/zLVXJHjsL9

You know how I know the Tyson thing is a MAJOR Wikipedia controversy? Wikipedia itself has spent over 30,000 words talking about it.

When I visited China, the first thing I did when I found a computer was Google "Tiananmen Square." The results? Not a single tank image.

Congratulations, Wikipedia. Your Internet-scrubbing would make China proud.
