Snopes Fact Checks Babylon Bee Again

Supposed Internet fact checker Snopes fact checked Christian satire website The Babylon Bee yesterday for their comical article suggesting “Empire” actor and alleged hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett was hired by CNN after “fabricating [a] news story out of thin air.”

Snopes rated the Babylon Bee as “False” for their satirical reporting of Jussie Smollett receiving a job at CNN after the details surrounding his alleged hate hoax came forward, writing that that “This was not a genuine news story, although some readers mistook it for such.”

For reference, the Babylon Bee website’s slogan is “The Babylon Bee is Your Trusted Source For Christian News Satire.”

Roundly mocking the development, Babylon Bee responded with another satirical article, this time with the headline “Snopes Rates Babylon Bee World’s Most Accurate News Source” the following day.

From the Babylon Bee satire piece:

After reviewing over 1,200 of the Bee’s articles, opinion pieces, and exclusive news stories published over the site’s eighteen months of existence, the Snopes team all agreed that the Bee was “far more accurate” than competing news sources.

“It’s not even close,” Snopes writer Kim LaCapria wrote as part of the announcement. “Whereas sites like CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are constantly dropping the ball, The Babylon Bee has never gotten a single fact wrong.”

Snopes previously fact checked Babylon Bee several times in 2018, eventually sparking a massive social media backlash after Snopes fact checked the satirical website’s article declaring “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication”.

The Internet fact checker apparently felt it was vital to inform readers that CNN did not, in fact, purchase a washing machine to write the news.

Big League Politics reported last year:

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.

Apparently Snopes feels the integrity of the Internet’s ability to discuss facts is in grave danger due to Christian satire.

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.
