After years of fact checking the popular Christian conservative website Babylon Bee, the once-respected fact checker is now spending its resources fact checking NPC Daily.
NPC Daily, a viral new right wing satire website using the popular non-player character meme, recently published an article titled “Disney announces that Woody will be ‘openly bisexual’ in Toy Story 4”, which prompted Snopes to inform readers that the children’s movie character will not, in fact, discuss his sexuality on the big screen.
Snopes referenced a clearly fake tweet used in the NPC Daily article by Disney, and wrote that “This report was not a genuine news account, nor was such a tweet issued by Disney.”
Apparently unable to determine the difference between “satire” and “fake news”, Snopes condemned the article as “fake” in its article. In fact, Snopes only begrudgingly admits the article is satirical in nature twice, first in the subheading of its article, and again at the tail end.
“A niche genre of ‘satire’ sexualizes animated characters,” according to the Snopes article subheading. It then concludes, “This isn’t the first time that a piece of ‘satire’ has sexualized animated characters.”
Snopes has a habit of deriding conservative satire as “fake news”, and reached great acclaim when it condemned The Babylon Bee for a 2018 article claiming CNN purchased an “industrial sized washing machine” to spin the news before it could be broadcast. This was initially believed to be used against Babylon Bee’s Facebook rankings, and after a massive backlash, Facebook clarified that the so-called fact checkers’ article would not be used to punish Babylon Bee.
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.
Snopes also fact checked Babylon Bee when it published another satirical article, this time suggesting the disgraced Jussie Smollett would be given a job at CNN after “fabricating a story out of thin air.” Smollett committed what is largely considered to be a hate crime hoax in which he is believed to have paid two brothers to attack him while wearing red hats in an attempt to secure better compensation for his work on “Empire” and stoke hate against supporters of President Donald Trump.
The formerly respected website does not stop at fact checking satirical articles. In April, Snopes fact checked a viral meme mocking Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, suggesting the freshman congresswoman appeared on “The Price Is Right” and guessed “free” as the price of every item.
SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror
Et tu, Fox News?
A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.
Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.
“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.
“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.
“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”
“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.
Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:
A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.
The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.
“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”
Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.
“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.
Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.
President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.
.@FoxNews just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research. They forgot that Fake News @CNN & MSDNC wouldn’t let @FoxNews participate, even a little bit, in the poor ratings Democrat Debates…..

….fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse). Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes. The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!

Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
