They were quick to fact-check this question: Did Far Left Crazy Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Another Galaxy) repeatedly guess “Free!” as a contestant on “The Price Is Right”? (https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/04/16/snopes-fact-checks-christian-satire-website-babylon-bee-again/)
This amusing tidbit was cooked up by the Babylon Bee, a Christian website well-known for its clever satires. They imagined O’Crazy-O as a contestant on the popular game show: no matter what the item in question–luggage, luxury cruise, jewelry, whatever–she blurted out “Free!” When asked by MC Drew Carey if she understood the rules of the game, she parried, “Don’t hate me ’cause you ain’t me.”
Despite the fact that this was obviously a satire, on a site famous for its satire, the august leftid “fact-check” maven Snopes rushed in to discover–gasp!–that the story wasn’t true. Who would’ve thought it?
After the Snopes finding that this here event, it, like, never happened, Facebook threatened Babylon Bee with censorship if they pulled any more stunts like this. Uh… How are you supposed to do satire if you don’t do stunts like this? Or are they going to decide you can only satirize Republicans?
I thought we had an absolute right to diss our puffed-up rulers every chance we get. Without getting “investigated” by Snopes. And when, by the way, was the last time Snopes “investigated” anyone saying “Trump is a fascist”?
I mean, really–if you can’t make fun of AOC, why even bother?
