Wikipedia Deletes Well Known Air Force Combat Pilot Entry

It appears that no matter who you are or how famous you are, if you are on the right side of politics, you too can have your Wikipedia entry deleted for no reason.

Well known retired Air Force Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson Wikipedia entry was deleted by editors who claim that his entry was not “inclusive” enough and a consensus decided that his page does not meet the site’s “so-called” inclusion guidelines.

Patterson noticed the missing entry on Thursday and stated, “The left’s attack on me continues! Wikipedia just took my page down… they put it up years ago. Apparently, they’ve had enough.”

Discussion on the Wikipedia: Articles for deletion/Buzz Patterson showed that they just viewed Patterson as not worthy of any mention.

Some of the discussion comments include:

No indication this person meets any notability standard. John from Idegon (talk) 18:54, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Delete – Unless he’s promoted posthumously
