LewRockwell.com is Satire?

I think this is a case where anti-satire is actually satire.

I’m really tired of the amount of fake news that has sprung up across the internet. In the past satire site’s like The Onion did a good job of being obvious they were fake. Unfortunately there is a new breed of satire sites out there that attempt to mimic real sites and twist real news stories in such a way to draw people into clicking them and ultimately many people spread these false claims across their social media. The worse thing is that many people believe the content on these fake news sites because they never read the disclaimer link in the bottom of the pages that say it’s a satire site or worse, they don’t understand what it means when a site describes itself as an “open source” or “speculative” news site that allows anyone to share their stories.

Still, people are sharing it all over Facebook.

    The ever-gullible, non-critical thinking masses are the perfect dupes for these satire sites. Nothing is too absurd for the credulous idiots produced by our school systems.
