Snopes Lies About Republicans in Another Intentionally Misleading ‘Fact Check’

Published

on

Once again, dubious”fact-checking” organization and Facebook’s official guardian of all that is true and just, Snopes, is intentionally misleading its readers in order to please their leftist handlers.

Generally, Snopes will pose a claim – this time “Republicans voted to make it legal to ban gays and lesbians from adopting ” – then rate the claim as either “true,” “mixture,” or “false.”

The headline reads: “Did Republicans Vote to Make it Legal to Ban Gays and Lesbians from Adopting?” Just below the headline is Snopes’ large green check mark, indicating a “true” rating.

Any rational person reading this would naturally assume that Snopes was referring to all Republicans, given that the headline does not qualify a certain group of Republicans. Those of us who understand how the government operates would assume that these Republicans voted on a bill to ban gays and lesbians from adopting.

But reading the fine print – which Snopes knows most people will simply ignore – the renowned arbiters of truth actually “fact-checked” an entirely different claim than what the headline would have the reader believe.

Here is the actual claim that Snopes was rating: “The Republican majority in the House Appropriations Committee voted to approve an amendment allowing taxpayer-funded adoption agencies to deny services to LGBTQ families.”

So, not only did Snopes fail to qualify that the Republicans it was referring to were only Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee, they also conveniently left out the fact that said Republicans were voting on a small amendment to a gigantic bill – and one that allows only taxpayer-funded adoption agencies to deny service to LGBTQ families in their overly simplistic headline.

The House Appropriations Committee is meant to regulate federal government spending, and this amendment was voted down as part of a bill for the markup of the entire Fiscal Year 2019 budget for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, along with related agencies.

Of course, in context this scenario is far different than what the Snopes headline suggests, which is that every Republican voted on a whole bill dedicated to banning all gay and lesbian couples from adopting children, without exception. That is the messaging that Snopes wanted its readers to come away with. Make no mistake, Snopes intentionally leaves out the nuance, preying on those who go to their site seeking confirmation bias.

This is not journalism. It is a deliberately designed political operation.

CANCELLED: Conservative Gatekeeper Caleb Hull Has Racial Slur Laden Tweets Exposed After Joining Leftist Witch Hunts Against ‘America First’ Movement

Some poetic justice for Mr. Hull.

Faux-conservative gatekeeper Caleb Hull, who has attacked many prominent ‘America First’ voices for not being sufficiently politically correct, is now under attack from the same leftists who he has cheered on in the past.

Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch exposed Hull’s history of making offensive comments on social media. Hull worked for Turning Point USA before becoming a digital communications strategist and marketing his services to pro-Trump Republicans.

“In 2014, Hull made anti-Black, anti-Muslim, ​and anti-LGBTQ remarks ​on a Twitter account that ​RWW determined belonged to Hull by reviewing archives from the account and comparing them to still-active posts on accounts where Hull uses his real name. The account, with the handle @FlwTV, was deleted from Twitter shortly after RWW started reaching out to Hull’s industry colleagues,” Holt wrote.

“Hull casually deployed the n-word on​ his​ @FlwTV Twitter account on several occasions and shared jokes in which the slur was the punchline. In one instance, he remarked that he was banned from a streamer’s chat room after he “spammed” the n-word “17 times.” Hull promoted racist tropes about Black people, specifically those involving watermelon and fried chicken, Black children without fathers, and slaves picking cotton,” he added.

While Holt’s hit pieces are meant to enforce cancel culture on the Right and typically abhorrent, Hull’s history of joining leftist witch hunts against conservative voices guilty of mob-imposed wrongthink has made these circumstances particularly ironic.

Hull once went after Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout after she was attacked by a mob of campus leftists, inferring that Bennett was asking for it due to her history of confrontational political activism.

“When you knowingly enter an area with hundreds of people who you know hate your guts that will confront you, going in without alerting police or having protection isn’t just “exercising your right to free speech.” It’s just plain old stupid and a call for attention,” Hull wrote in his tweet blaming the victim.

“Nothing unites America quite like hating Kaitlin Bennett,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Hull also attacked right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin, calling her an anti-Semite for refusing to disavow paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes.

The cancelling of Hull by the social justice mob should teach a lesson to every conservative who believes they are untouchable because they serve Conservative Inc. and try to police their speech to appease the Left. Sooner or later, the mob will come for your scalp as well.
