Essentially, they are trying to make sure that their readership is aware of the fact that
a SATRICAL article published by the Bayblon
Bee is not true. The "fact-check" even includes a brief profile of the 9th circuit court judge mentioned in the Babylon Bee article.
I laughed out loud at this USA Today article more than I did at the Babylon Bee's satire. I mean, this is just bizarre. Beyond bizarre.
First, it tells me that the folks at USA Today consider their readers to be so damn stupid that they can't even distinguish between reality and
satire. That assumption is understandable given that:
1. Most of their readers are progressives who are stupid and completely devoid of any ability to process humor.
2. The people who write for USA Today are all of the same ilk.
There are a few of issues a play here, though.
One is that we have, as I have mentioned many times on this site and in other places, come to a point culturally where satire often reflects reality
more accurately than what passes for news. One can often gleam more of the truth from satire than one can from so-called news reports. Given such, the
left is afraid of satire. I believe that there is a
five-step relationship that a culture goes
through in regards to satire. We are at presently between stages three and four, moving quickly to stage five if people do not wake up.
Another is that, as has been observed in many places, progressive and progressives are for the most part devoid of the cognitive ability to
understand, process, produce and react to humor on any level. Michael Knowles explains Why the Left Can't Meme in this excellent video
Third is just that these people are #in' idiots.

Yes, and Facebook demonetized the Bee for basically rehashing a Monty Python joke using Maizie Hirono and ACB as the main players. Facebook claimed
the Monty Python witch burning scene from Holy Grail "incites violence" or some such rubbish.
the fact that there is a flat earth thread and it has over 100 pages on this site tells me there are a lot of people who can't think, don't know how
to use logic, deny ignorance,have critical thinking....so not surprised at all
The video meme made me go lol in my pants. Click all the boxes with the President. Greatness.
Maybe the Left is comprised of autistic lights. Asperger syndrome people have a hard time reading facial expressions, getting jokes, and some
certainly can’t control emotions (not unlike the videos of people screaming).
