Beyond ‘fake news’ the reality of the left electricity in salt water experiment

When the right is accused of peddling fake news, can we not, at the very least, invoke the "fake but accurate" defense when the stories turn out to be parody? It’s an onerous task to constantly have to fact-check actual left-wing behavior because it reads like lampoon.

The party that goes apoplectic at the mere suggestion that a woman may have contributed to her own sexual assault, for whatever reason, blames Antifa violence on the mere presence of conservatives on campus. They are, apparently, entrapping the left into committing violence through their very existence. It’s the same sort of thinking that gets us here:

When I first read this, my guess was that it was the work of a master at parodying soft-bigoted leftists unaware of what it was they were writing. Sadly, this was an actual headline by CNN. It’s frightening how casually they link blacks and felons in their minds while claiming that everyone else is the racist.

While the president’s argument that many illegals are voting in California’s elections is rebuffed by the left as an absurdity, California has appointed an illegal to a state post. This is known as urinating on one’s leg while telling people it’s raining.

There’s a Twitter account that parodies Maxine Waters. The writer makes up fake quotes in a "low I.Q." style. Nothing written from that account is any more preposterously stupid than the actual Pelosi quote above. So if a fake Waters quote slips past the goaltender, who can blame him?

There was a time when a "satire" disclaimer didn’t need to be added to a headline like " From Now On Taco Bell Will Only Serve Customers of Mexican Descent." It was a given that it was comedy. But now that a major political party says and does things equally ridiculous, how can you fault someone for republishing a parody site’s creative writing as straight news?
