Ever been to a party where there is that one person who is a downer? They can’t take a joke and don’t want you to enjoy yourself either.
Well, that is the New York Times.
They just can’t take a joke, and they were on the verge of being sued for their negative attitude.
Conservative Christian site the Babylon Bee had threatened to sue the New York Times for calling them a website that trafficked in “far-right misinformation” that used “satire” to protect their presence on Facebook.
Seriously…that is a thing they wrote.
It is called “satire” for a reason! It isn’t meant to be taken seriously, but apparently the joke was over the heads of the writers at the New York Times. They are the butt of the joke and they don’t even realize it.
Much of the humor from the Babylon Bee is directed at Left-wing outlets like the New York Times… and by creating a false narrative about the satire site – the NYT are making the Bee’s point for them.
PJ Media reported, “On Monday, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon announced that The New York Times had agreed to drop its arguably defamatory attack on the Babylon Bee after the Bee sent multiple demand letters threatening a defamation lawsuit. Under the guise of reporting, the Times claimed that the Bee ‘frequently trafficked in misinformation under the guise of satire.’ While the Times originally agreed to weaken the attack somewhat, its updated story still suggested that the Bee is one of the ‘far-right misinformation sites that used ‘satire’ claims to protect their presence on [Facebook].’
Yet the Times finally agreed to drop the attacks altogether on Friday.
‘Big update here. The [New York Times] has responded to our demand letter by removing defamatory statements about us from their article. Here’s their email to our counsel notifying us of the correction,” Dillon announced on Twitter Monday.’”
The Babylon Bee has been factchecked by Snopes, the USA Today, and was demonetized at one point on Facebook.
I am not kidding.
These are the same people who fact checked the Daily Wire two years ago following the death of former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who died while being chased by a U.S. military trained dog named Conan.
As a joke, the folks over at the Daily Wire made a funny meme in which they photoshopped Conan receiving a medal from then-President Trump.
There lives must be miserable if they can’t take a joke; don’t they realize that self-deprecating humor can be good for the soul?
Many on the Left take themselves so damned serious.
We only live once, getting worked up about funny memes isn’t worth the self-inflicted agony.
Lighten up, people!
The Left has unleashed war on fun itself.
Whether it be sports, movies, music, or even casual dining, the Left won’t allow us to simply sit back and enjoy our favorite pastimes any longer.
So, if you really want to irk the Left, enjoy your life, that will drive them mad, and there are few things in life more fun than owning the Left!
