Snopes describes itself as the “oldest and largest fact-checking site on the Internet.” For many, Snopes is considered the end all and be all of what is true on the internet, and for a while that was the case. The site used to be dedicated to exposing conspiracy theories and folk legends.
But during the 2016 Presidential election, Snopes got heavily involved in politics, seeming to act as the defensive wing of the Clinton campaign at times. Perhaps most famously, they defended Hillary Clinton for her role in the infamous “Uranium One” scandal.
Now that the election is over, it seems that they have enough extra time on their hands to fact check Christian satire website, Babylon Bee. Any reasonable person who takes a cursory glance at the site will see the satire, but Snopes still finds it necessary to fact check them.
Perhaps their most ridiculous fact check was on an article where Babylon Bee claimed that CNN purchased an “industrial sized washing machine” so they could spin news. Most people would find the article hilarious, despite being fake, but Snopes instead found it important to make it known that the claim was false.
Snopes also fact checked an article where Babylon Bee claimed that Planned Parenthood defended Bill Cosby, because “sexual assault is only 3% of what he does.” The satirical article was obviously poking fun at Planned Parenthood, who claims that abortion is only 3% of what they do.
While it may be comical that a website designed to fact check false claims on the internet would spend their time fact checking obvious satire, it becomes more dangerous with the fact that Snopes is an official fact-checker for Facebook. That means that when Babylon Bee posts a parody article that has been fact checked on Facebook, the social network site alerts anyone who clicks the link that it is fake.
The same warning that goes on satire articles from Babylon Bee are included on articles touting Hillary Clinton’s involvement with the Uranium One scandal, and anything else they decide is fake.
CONFIRMED: Facebook Used to Organize ANTIFA/Black Lives Matter ‘Protest’ That Resulted in the Shooting of a Motorist
This terrorist violence was organized courtesy of Facebook.
Tech giant Facebook provided the platform that allowed ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists to foment a riot in Provo, Utah that resulted in gunfire striking one unfortunate motorist who encountered the mob.
Far Left Watch made the discovery that Facebook allowed the terrorists to collaborate and promote violence on their platform:
CONFIRMED: The Provo "protest" that resulted in a shooting was organized by an Antifa cell on @Facebook.
In the event description they included a quote from Malcolm X about picking "the gun up" and instructed participants to "wear all black".https://t.co/NfTQH3y9T3

The organizers of the event, the Salt Lake City Antifascist Coalition, used a Malcolm X quote that explicitly endorses gun violence: “Sometimes you have to pick the gun up to put the Gun down.” It seems one of their activists took that message to heart when he picked up a gun and fired it at an unsuspecting motorist, wounding him. The Facebook event page has been archived here.
The ANTIFA organizers urged participants to “come stand with us” and refuse to accept blatant acts of “discrimination, racism, and unethical acts toward people of color.” They also advised demonstrators to “please wear all black,” “wear your masks,” “bring water,” and “wear protective eye gear if you got it.” They scheduled the event to challenge peaceful pro-police protesters with violent and combative street action.
Big League Politics reported on the ANTIFA/BLM terrorist who has been charged for shooting the motorist in the streets of Provo:
A Utah man has been arrested and charged with attempted aggravated murder following a shooting incident at a rioter’s roadblock where a man was caught on camera firing two shots at a motorist crossing through the formation.
Jesse Taggart, 33, was arrested and charged Tuesday with attempted aggravated murder, aggravated assault, rioting, and firing a weapon near a highway.
Journalist Andy Ngo has reported that Taggart’s social media accounts are filled with content in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Footage of the event in question reveals a man firing two shots from a semiautomatic pistol at a motorist who was inching through an illegal roadblock set up by Black Lives Matter protestors.
Reports indicate that an unnamed victim was in fact shot during the rioting event, a 60-year old man who is currently being treated at an area hospital for his injuries.
John Geyerman, deputy chief of the Provo Police Department, summarized Taggart’s alleged crimes. “The male protester ran toward the SUV on the passenger side, pointed a handgun at the driver, and shot one round through the window. The driver, who was struck by the bullet, accelerated, trying to leave the situation. The same protester ran after the vehicle and fired a second shot that went through the rear passenger window.”
By refusing to ban ANTIFA and BLM thugs from their platform, Facebook is condoning and sharing in the responsibility for the explosion of left-wing terrorism that is overtaking America.
