Fake News from Fake Writers

As if fake news weren’t bad enough, now we’ve got to deal with fake news written by fake people.

The Huffington Post has had to remove an April 13 post on its blog by–purportedly–an “activist and feminist” who is working for her master’s degree in philosophy, surely one of the great thinkers of our time, advocating that white men be formally stripped of their right to vote because it’s all their fault that Donald Trump got to be president instead of Hillary Clinton, and also Brexit is their fault, too… and not letting them vote anymore, see, that would make it way easier for progressives to win elections… How do you spell the sound a raspberry makes?

Anyhow, HuffPo had to delete the post because its author “appears not to exist” ( http://www.huffingtonpost.co.za/shelley-garland/could-it-be-time-to-deny-white-men-the-franchise_a_22036640/ ). Dontcha hate it when that happens?

If a fictional person self-identifies as real, does that mean he, she, it, whatevuh, is real? Isn’t this yet another kind of discrimination–real-ism?

  1. Fake reporters, fake news, fake people – robots, artificial ‘intelligence’, on an on it goes. By the way, Lee, as a side note, when they came up with the phrase ‘artificial intelligence’ this could be what they actually had in mind 🙂

  2. So there is REAL discrimination against FAKE people!!!! Something must be done and it must be done now!!!! There’s no time to think, we must act immediately to correct this travesty. What if some of the fake people are transgender fake people? The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

    1. I agree. From this moment forward, the Movement to Protect the Unreal will go forth! We accept PayPal, BitCoin and all major credit cards. If you want to remember the unreal in your will our attorneys will draft the paperwork for you and you won’t even need to read it for yourself. Just sign on the dotted line. 🙂

  3. Are they really serious about this nonsense. I can’t believe they can face themselves in the mirror after spinning out this garbage. Take away white mens’ privilege? Give me a break! Who fought for this country? Who established a Constitution? Who have the main breadwinners been? Stop the world, I want to get off.

    1. Let’s hope Hil-liary isn’t reading this. She may use it as a campaign ad! LOL!
