PolitiFact Now Rating Claims That No One Ever Disputed to Make Republicans Look Bad

Published

In an obvious partisan effort to hurt Republicans reinforce leftist media bias, PolitiFact is now rating claims that no one ever disputed – but only if it hurts Republicans.

“In December of 2017, the Prince William board of supervisors had a meeting … (Corey Stewart) skipped that meeting to go campaign in Alabama for Roy Moore to be a U.S. senator … You haven’t disavowed Roy Moore’s name yet,” said Sen. Tim Kaine during a debate with GOP challenger Corey Stewart on Saturday.

No one disputed this fact, but PolitiFact took it upon themselves to fact-check the claim as “True” anyway, highlighting a fact that could hurt Stewart. When asked if they would be fact-checking obviously-True statements that Stewart made during the debate against Kaine, PolitiFact predictably dodged the question.

“We rate claims that we think would cause the average person to say, ‘I wonder if that’s true,'” PolitiFact editor Angie Drobnic Holan told Big League Politics, smugly directing us to PolitiFact’s “guidelines” page.

As an example, Stewart asserted several times during the same debate Kaine flip-flopped on his stance on offshore drilling when it was politically expedient. As reported by Big League PoliticsStewart’s assertion was obviously true. In fact, PolitiFact itself even acknowledged the flip-flop in 2016.

After Saturday’s debate, though, the average person might be wondering if that claim made by Stewart is true. Remember, that is supposedly one of PolitiFact’s criteria for fact-checking.

Holan – again, predictably – did not comment when asked specifically if readers could expect an article confirming Stewart’s claims about Kaine’s ever-changing position on offshore drilling as “True.”

Of course, whether a claim “would cause the average person to say, ‘I wonder if that’s true,'” is an entirely subjective assessment to be made by the PolitiFact staff, and that us just how they like it. It allows them to brush off claims that they do not want to “fact-check” (read: Democrat lies) by claiming that the average person would not wonder about the claim.

The entire premise of fact-checking websites like PolitiFact is a joke. They are simply weaponized partisan attack machines designed to move the political needle towards the left.

PATHETIC: Reason Magazine Calls Proud Boys ‘White Nationalist’ and Criticizes President Trump for Not Condemning Them

Reason Magazine lies again.

The smear merchants are out in full force after President Donald Trump refused to condemn the Proud Boys at the first presidential debate on Tuesday night.

The controversial clip can be seen here:

Although President Trump said he would disavow white supremacist groups, he would not disavow the Proud Boys, who are led by a dark-skinned Cuban man, or militia forces, who have defended property when cops were ordered not to do so in left-wing sustained riot situations.

Perhaps the most pathetic attack against President Trump comes from Reason Magazine, the globalist propaganda rag funded by the Koch network. Reason associate editor Scott Shackford lied about the Proud Boys, calling them a “white nationalist” group, and lied about President Trump, implying that he refused to disavow white supremacy, in his cheap smear piece.

“Trump still, unlike Biden, seems unable to repudiate violence from people who support him,” Shackford wrote.

Reason was immediately taken to task by their own libertarian-leaning fan base, who may not support President Trump but aren’t willing to accept blatantly false propaganda about the man.

“The Proud Boys are not “white nationalists.” Why lead with something so demonstrably untrue?” wrote commenter Geiger Goldstaedt.

“Given that they welcome people of color into their group and have zero white nationalist causes. I will take a person’s word for it whether they are white nationalist. It’s not exactly a cause that’s easy to stumble into,” wrote Ben of Houston.

“Reason’s race-baiting false witness is a sin and malignant societal cancer. They are scum,” buybuydandavis wrote.

They were similarly eviscerated on social media:

Big League Politics has reported on how Proud Boys have done nothing wrong except support Trump and defend themselves against ANTIFA terrorists. Group members have paid a steep price for their patriotic activity:

Two “Proud Boys” members were sentenced to four years in prison by a Manhattan judge on Tuesday after they defended themselves against ANTIFA terrorists who attacked a New York event featuring their leader, Gavin McInnes, over a year ago.

Big League Politics covered the scene last year when ANTIFA terrorists defaced the Metropolitan Republican Club (MET) in an attempt to threaten the organizers into canceling the event the day before it was scheduled to commence. They threatened to return and use violence if the MET went on with the event.

When the MET refused to bow to the will of the domestic terrorists, ANTIFA showed up yet again and provoked event attendees with violence…

In the aftermath, ANTIFA terrorists escaped charges while examples were made out of the Proud Boys. The fake news media invented a narrative that the Proud Boys were the provocateurs, which was seized upon by liberal city and state officials, and the result was a show trial where two Proud Boys ended up being convicted and sentenced to prison terms for self-defense.

Maxwell Hare, 27, and John Kinsman, 40, were each sentenced to four years in prison by Justice Mark Dwyer, who made clear in his remarks that his ruling was meant to send a political message.

“It’s a shame when some people jump up and down on a platform,” Dwyer said, referring to McInnes, “and their followers, their soldiers, get into trouble.”

“I’m not sure the most moral responsibility belongs to these two defendants,” he added.

Dwyer also made a thinly-veiled reference comparing the Proud Boys to Nazi streetfighters in 1930s Germany.

“I know enough about history to know what happened in Europe in the ’30s when political street brawls were allowed to go ahead,” Dwyer said during the sentencing. “We don’t want that to happen in New York.”

10 Proud Boys members were charged as a result of their response to the coordinated ANTIFA terror attack on the MET last year. Seven ended up taking plea deals while one other individual is still awaiting trial.

“This is pure clown world. The fake news is leading to real sentences,” McInnes explained in his response video to the sentencing.

President Trump showed courage by refusing to throw the Proud Boys under the bus. He should continue to reject the fake news media’s games and call out ANTIFA as the real terror threat.
