You know what a hard time this is for satirists. We make up something goofy and it turns out to be real. Or at least some people believe it to be real.
In their own words, “NPC Daily is a satire site… our content is totally fictitious and is created to elicit laughs and amusement.”
Nevertheless, a lot of people believed it when NPC reported Far Left Crazy Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as saying we should abolish Daylight Savings Time because “the extra hour of sunlight drastically speeds up climate change” (https://npcdaily.com/2649/aoc-opposes-daylight-savings-time-because-the-extra-hour-of-sunlight-drastically-speeds-up-climate-change/).
I admit it: I believed this at first. Why not? She has said America can pay for socialism and the Green New Deal simply by printing up more money. How stupid is that?
But she didn’t say get rid of daylight savings to reduce by an hour a day the amount of sunlight Earth receives. It reminds me of the old joke of the stupid astronaut who was going to be the first to land on the sun: “We won’t get burned up because we’ll go at night!”
It’s hard to invent something so preposterous that no one will believe it, when you’re writing about O’Crazy-O-Cortez. Or the Democrat Party in general. How far out do you have to go before it’s too far out even for them? We are talking about a party that features a Congressman, Hank Johnson, who fears the island of Guam will “tip over and capsize” if we put any more Marines on it.
These nimrods sit up there on Capitol Hill and make public policy for our country. That should worry you. I know it worries me.
