A lot has been made by the liberal media of Representative John Fleming (Republican, Louisiana) falling for some fake article about an Abortionplex, thinking it was real.

Us conservatives don’t like satire because it’s too hard to tell what’s real and what’s fake. In fact, I don’t even understand the concept of satire. Either something is funny, or it’s not. It doesn’t need to be more complicated than that.

  • What’s funny is when you see one of them home video shows, and a guy sleds down a steep hill until he hits a tree or parked car. That’s funny!
  • What’s funny is when you turn on Cops (best show on tv), and the cop pulls over a guy who’s been drinking and driving while driving his tractor. That always cracks me up.
  • What’s funny is when a greedy contestant on Wheel of Fortune knows the answer but spins one last time to try to make more money and lands on “Bankrupt.” Then, the person next to him solves the puzzle with $250 in his pot. Ha!

What’s not funny is when you take a serious topic like abortion and turn it into a joke that seems so close to the truth that an innocent and hard-working man’s man of a congressman gets duped into thinking that it was a real article written by real liberals.

That’s what happened to poor John Fleming. The original article from some news outlet called “The Onion” is called Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex.

Even the title seems real. Planned Parenthood loves abortions, and liberals would be happy to give them $8 billion (all of which would come from hard-working Americans like Donald Trump and Mitt Romney)–who wouldn’t believe the article? I mean, by their own admission, Planned Parenthood spends 3% of their money on abortions–only 97% is spent on non-abortion related activity. They’re like the McDonald’s of abortions.

But here are a few other “fake” facts from the article:

  • The Abortionplex is located in Topeka, Kansas. That’s exactly where liberals would put an abortion factory because it would annoy the good conservatives of Kansas. They wouldn’t put it in New York City because it would fit right in and not make anyone mad.
  • Their motto is: No Life Is Sacred. Are you telling me that’s not the motto of the average liberal? I mean, geez, I guess they like the lives of minorities and poor, but they don’t think any other lives are sacred, especially Christians who they’re always at war with. Most of them wish Christmas came twice per year just so they could get mad twice.
  • Their goal is to do a million abortions per month. That sounds about right, which makes me wonder why liberals always want to give away birth control. It limits their abortion business.
  • Abortionplex includes movie theaters, bars, coffee shops, and night clubs. Liberals want return patients, so they want everyone to be comfortable–very comfortable, if you know what I mean.

The article is very close to being believable, which is why the liberals and their so-called humor isn’t funny. I could have been fooled, too, and none of my conservative friends ever accused me of being dumb.
