Posted on 11/05/2018 2:16:30 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
The so-called fact checkers at Snopes have reached out to Breitbart News in an openly partisan attempt to wash away the story of armed members of the New Black Panther Party campaigning for the Democrat gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Stacey Abrams. Over the weekend, Breitbart Newsamong other media outletspublished explosive photographs of armed Black Panthers campaigning for Abrams, holding up her campaign sign while also holding up various guns. In the story, Breitbart News included a quote from the campaign of her GOP opponent, Brian Kemp, calling on her to denounce the radicals campaigning for her.
The story went viral. Many other national outlets and outlets across Georgia, including a local CBS News affiliate, picked it up and carried the damning images of Abrams radical supporters. Since then, President Donald Trump held a rally in Macon, Georgia, for Kemp and the latest polls in the race show Kemp leading Abrams by as many as 12 points.
On Monday, a self-identified reporter for Snopes, Bethania Palma, reached out to Breitbart News with a series of questions about the Black Panther report. None of the questions implies anything was inaccurate about the report Facebook relies on Snopes as an official fact checker to detect fake news and misinformation on the platform, along with a small group of other primarily left-wing organizations including Politifact.

Was there ever a time when Snopes was not openly partisan?
out damn spot, out!
Snopes guy is a POS who once called the New Testament an “aberration”
HE’S an aberration.
I don’t like to pretend I know what God is going to decide on any given individual.
but I would like to be there when he meets up with the maker.
Wow. That guy is a five star general!
Bro wid’ dat maxed out AR-15, he be got his scope on backwards. Keep da threat at some distance, see?
Dem three dey jus’ gonna send all dem white crackas to da voting booth an’ to da gun store!
I don’t believe they’re even real black pampers.
I think they’re fake.
Everything and everyone else the rats trot out there is fake except for the violence that permeates their astroturfing.
Big guy has his optic mounted backwards.
“Big guy has his optic mounted backwards.”
He also has the NBP emblem patch on his chest.
Not trying to be a pest or rain on your parade, but the tricked out AR-15 is actually an FN SCAR, and the scope is actually on the way it should be. It's probably a 1x4 combat scope. Some of these scopes (e.g. Nikon Monarch 1-4x20) do not have a "bell" at the muzzle end.
Not trying to nit-pick, but one must never underestimate a possible opponent.
Snopes wouldnt know a fact if it slapped them in the face.
“ Breitbart normally takes a pro-gun stance. Does Breitbart maintain that stance when the gun owners are black?”
What a loon.
And Breitbart didn’t attempt to contact the Black Panthers ?
Oh yeah, because 1-800-black-panthers picks up whenever Breitbart calls.
All of the “fact-checker” organizations I am familiar with including Snopes and Politifact are organs of the Ministry of Propaganda.
One of those things that makes you go hmmm.....
I wonder who bought it for him. Anything FN doesn’t come cheap.
He meant to do that.....
Snopes is a failed - left wing blog.
Apparently it is on correct. Two FReepers have that scope...
