Is it really reasonable to remove Real Life examples when there were never any flame wars or Natter on the page (and likely never would be)? Is it just because it's a Villain Trope? Why not give it a chance?

Plus, this trope is about people who believe and announce that they are evil. I would imagine that last part would keep people from making frivolous claims like, "Abraham Lincoln is a good example of card-carrying evil." Just for the fact that unless a person states "I'm eeeeevil!" or something similar, its not this trope.

I Agree. This site is beginning to worry a lot more about who they -might- offend, and this trope wouldn't (and didn't) attract assholes hating or glorifying someone. Stalin's quote, for example, was a perfect illustration of how this kind of thinking has been used.

Somebody outright calling oneself EVIL and not really trying to excuse their actions, wouldn't be offended by being called Card Carrying Villains.

I'd like to dipute the claim that people beleiving humans are bastards fit this trope. Many of them are simply true neutral, NOT EVIL, and even the very worst of them belong on the jerkass or Well Intentioned Extremist page, not here. Putting them here is as asinine as putting the WI Extremist examples under the complete monster page. Please never do anythibg that prickish again. Thanks.

This sounds like a case of removing it being Right for the Wrong Reasons. Although I haven't seen the removed example so I can't really comment.
