“Fact-checking” website Snopes throws aside FACTS to push anti-Trump, pro-globalist Left-wing agenda

It’s getting to the point where you really can’t trust anything published by the so-called “mainstream media” because it is concocted, fabricated narrative, or outright false — and this is especially true when it comes to anti-establishment politicians like Donald Trump.

CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and the broadcast news networks have already tossed aside any semblance of journalistic ethics and integrity they had left in the age of Trump. Anything and everything is fair game when it comes to the ongoing effort by the Marxist Left to get rid of the most pro-America president in generations.

Now, so-called “fact-checking” websites like Snopes have also ditched all remaining vestiges of journalistic integrity, declaring, outright, that even fake news and phony narratives are okay in the Trump era because, you know, he’s such a threat to democracy.

As John Nolte at Breitbart News notes:

In a stunning admission (of what we already knew), Snopes reprinted an essay Thursday arguing that Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson are such unique threats to the world that “experts must find new ways to reach people.” Which means that — get this — Trump and Johnson must be “countered by the shared stories, experiences and emotions of real people and how they are affected by the big global issues.”

Snopes has long been accused of lying about ‘facts’ in order to push a Left-wing political narrative. The site refused to correct lies surrounding Native American ‘activist’ Nathan Phillips, who tried to provoke pro-Trump children from a Catholic school in Kentucky, ‘fact-checks’ obvious satire, and covered for Obama’s ransom payment to Iran for American hostages so he could do his bogus “nuclear deal” with the terrorist-sponsoring regime.

As for the essay Snopes reprinted, it was originally a blog post by Profs. David Knights and Torkild Thanem. First published by The Conservation, Snopes ran it in full.

Public austerity measures, for example, are not simply about financial facts,” they wrote. “Indeed, when presented merely as economic data, many people can neither identify with nor understand them. Instead, austerity poses problems that compel us to examine how they affect people and families in their daily lives. The experiences of those individuals must be shared.”

Both academics also made similarly arcane points when discussing Brexit — Britain’s vote to exit the European Union, which was actually decided on in June 2016 but has yet to occur because globalists in that country and in the EU continue to throw up roadblocks.

“Whether examining Brexit, public austerity measures or the effects of climate change, one limitation is that facts and data generated through quantitative social research are presented as if detached from the people they concern as well as those involved in their production,” the authors write. “Far removed from people’s lived experiences, they risk displacing any sense of what it is to be human. As such, they are, perhaps, too easy to dismiss.”

There you have it. If you were one of the 51.9 percent of British subjects who voted to leave the EU and, you know, have a totally independent country, then you’re not a human so your views should be ‘dismissed.”

Nolte writes that it is actually a positive thing that we are seeing columns like this appear and that “fact checkers” like Snopes are providing them with a platform. It’s good to see the ‘enemy’ drop his mask and reveal who he is.

It’s also important to note that Snopes posted the article without any caveat — that is, without saying something like, ‘Hey, this doesn’t reflect our editorial opinion’ — which further reveals the site’s commitment to propaganda and fabrication over facts that it doesn’t like.

The problem is, far too many people still believe these people and have no idea what their political objectives are: To undermine our republic and democracy everywhere.

  1. This seems like one fake news outlet, eating another fake news outlet?

    “ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday and Sunday purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is, the footage appears to come from a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky,”

    “Child murder? Not a problem for @GOP anymore. Its a feature. Dont you complicit killers ONCE say “family values,” Eichenwald said on his Twitter account criticizing U.S. President Donald Trump, Senators Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio.

    Mustafa Bozdemir, who had taken the photo, [1983] was the first Turkish photojournalist to win the World Press award.

    Since the start of Turkey Operation Peace Spring, many social media accounts are sharing fake images or those pictures that were taken in the past to spread disinformation about the operation east of the Euphrates river.

    Peace? modern-day Islamic scholar, Ibrahim Sulaiman, puts it, “Jihad is not inhumane, despite its necessary violence and bloodshed, its ultimate desire is peace which is protected and enhanced by the rule of law.”
