Snopes “Fact Checks” are a Scarlet Letter, Please Call Us False or We Will Sue

In fact, because we know through Snopes’ own history they are hit and run defamation mercenaries for sale to the highest bidder, we couldn’t do anything but distance ourselves from these professional slanderers as a matter of conscience. We not only reject their endorsement, our legal team will ensure they never try to do it again. It was decided that our best option was to demand they call anything we publish “false,” even retroactively, lest a “true” rating from these evil clowns suggest we are a willing part of their three-ring shit show; where ethical, professional journos are shot out of cannons into shark tanks and child molesters are fanned and held aloft obsequiously by a cheering Snopes caravan.

Celine Dion’s New Order Fashion Titanic Dead On Arrival

You see that poor girl modeling these clothes? Her nickname is “Smiley” because she is always happy and her smile is contagious. But then she had to wear this shit for a photo shoot. Yeah, I’d be depressed and embarrassed too. Poor use of color, I mean, black and yellow? What is she? a taxi? And the skull theme? that Illuminati shit still supposed to be edgy? What next? Baphomet horns on a yellow and black hat? This Canadian export (the clothing and designer herself) is so terrible it should, in and of itself, give us cause to reassess our new trade deal with Canada. Honestly, though, the true crime of unisex attire is that it is unoriginal. The vast majority of the world is quite happy with their biological gender, and want to dress accordingly, but this requires originality. […]

Scott Adams, Watch the Friendly Fire

Is Scott Adams an authority to be trusted above your own research and free will? Is this the underlying message, or is it ego? The problem with fame is the ability to influence others often convinces these talents to believe their own sense of intellectual authority. Lots of us don’t know how to think think critically, or the pitfalls of common logical fallacies and psychological defense mechanisms like cognitive dissonance. Your author is not an authority on anything, but humbly asks you learn to trust yourself. I don’t want you to think like me, I just want you to think. […]

Fake News 101: “You furnish the pictures, I’ll furnish the war”

A media that pushes for war on a false pretext is an enemy of the people, it is a very deadly enemy of the people and enemy of all of mankind. “The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia. This is a point of no return, and I am going to stand up and say … it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia…because war is never coming from itself, there is always people who push for war, and this is not only politicians, it is journalists too. … We have betrayed our readers, just to push for war. …” Udo Ulfkotte […]

Acid Attacker Reluctantly Spares Kathy Griffin, Worried it Would Only Improve Her Appearance

Abdul Smegma, a notorious London acid attacker wanted for permanently disfiguring the faces of at least twenty women, announced in a Skype video today that despite Kathy Griffin’s innately offensive nature and blasphemous imbecility, he would not splash acid on her face because “it’s just so damned hideous that burning the fugly off her mug would be an improvement, thus defeating the purpose of such an attack.” […]

How You Can Undermine the ‘Evil Cabal’

Language is perhaps the most important device we have for creating reality, and just as George Orwell knew, the more linguistically vague, simplistic, ambiguous and nondescript the language, the more room there is to shape perception. This is called Newspeak, and in the case of the ‘Evil Cabal,’ the term fails to fully describe our complex world, but succeeds tremendously in maintaining the prison of fear that actually inhibits freedom.
