You’d think people easily should be able to tell the difference between obvious satire and serious news reporting.

But in today’s upside-down cultural landscape, that distinction has been lost by those who are obsessed with controlling news narratives and censoring opposing ideas.

They will go to absurd lengths to ensure that anything that offends them or makes them feel uncomfortable in any way is censored, banned, and removed from public view.

The latest and most shocking example of their absurdity is the “fact-checking” of humorous and obviously satirical stories from the Babylon Bee.

A recent satirical piece from the Bee was “fact-checked” and labeled “false” and “fake news.”

Employing “fact-checkers” to evaluate and contradict statements made is nothing other than a convenient excuse to censor content that the Left doesn’t want you to see.

G. K. Chesterton once said, ”Humor can get in under the door while seriousness is still fumbling at the handle.”

Sadly, this may soon be a past memory, not a present reality.
