#1 Your Mayor openly support Antifa over you, so keep dreaming. Send your organized crime unit into action little miss dreamer. Have them disrupt the comms and funding, go after a RICO charge to get fed funding, and all of the Antifa warriors will go back to their mommy's basements and play video games..

#2 I've always been pro law enforcement when they were on the side of good. When they side with the bad on orders from city hall, the picture becomes cloudy...

#6 The Bee just stung me. Thanks Mullah. But I gotta say it is so close to the truth.... And probably has more truth to it the NYT.

#7 Their satire hits home. Which is why Snopes is trying everything they can to get them thrown off platforms.

#8 From NewsBusters:

Snopes calls Babylon Bee ‘Most Shared Factually Inaccurate Content’

Snopes official Twitter tweeted an article titled “Study: Too Many People Think Satirical News Is Real” and wrote that “stories published by The Babylon Bee were among the most shared factually inaccurate content in almost every survey of this research.”

In this August 16 post, they were well aware that Babylon Bee is a satire website but have switched tactics to instead claim satirical news can be dangerous, saying “In a news cycle full of clownish characters and outrageous rhetoric, it’s no wonder satire isn’t fully registering with a lot of readers.”

The Babylon Bee made a formal response to the study in question, saying “From their view, we're just pretenders, using the label "satire" to our advantage so we can hoodwink the masses.” It later added “It's really extraordinary, especially since they've acknowledged in private communication with us that there is a ‘clear distinction’ between our satire and intentionally misleading fake news.”

#9 This is half the reason why Rantburg identifies the source website in square brackets at the beginning of the article.

#10 tw - and it's a good thing Rantburg does that. These days, it can be very hard to distinguish good satire (like from the Bee) and actual news.
