I will likely cover this in the future. The Babylon Bee is hysterical satire, and for Snopes and other fact checkers to continually miss the point is outrageous. A movie called Equilibrium, starring Christian Bale, William Fichtner, Taye Diggs, and a few others, speaks to a soulless future, not unlike Fahrenheit 451, where feelings are squashed through a medication, where and all manner of art and writing is destroyed. I fear that fact checking will lead to that same humorless world where we become nothing more than robots moving through the world.

When we make fun of liberals, Snopes pretends to take us seriously and labels our jokes ‘false.’
