No, those are the people who turned already.


nobod3

I wish we had a tag for fake headlines. I don’t want to spread misinformation but I still want to laugh at the humor.


dancegoddess1971

I always check the subreddit. This is r/politicalhumor so I hope it's satire. One has to check these days though, right?


nobod3

It’s a meme. If you look in the lower left there’s a small “imgflip.com” watermark from where it was generated. But still, that’s so small that I could see people mistaking this for legit.


[deleted]

Other than there being a "spokesman" for "MAGA" and the absurd line about killing people, the actual headline itself looks potentially real. I could believe it.


Foe_Twennie

honestly, its likley happened before, just not to the point of being in the news as a headline...


LazilyOblivious

Oh damn you're right. I honestly believed it for a second cause that's pretty much how they are for real.


deepmindfulness

Mods, we really need this!!


Kithesile

That urge is the difference between you and them lol congrats on having a brain that takes the half second to go *hmm that sounds farfetched, better check their sources*


OohLaLaaaaaa

The thing is, this is exactly how MAGA morons think. It’s so Oniony that it doesn’t even matter if it’s true They’re psychos


sirbabylon

I'm not saying they are grounded but, "it doesn't matter if it's true" is a very dangerous place to be in this era of misinformation.


OohLaLaaaaaa

There’s a difference between satire looking real because it’s completely plausible, and misinformation


nobod3

I agree. There’s is a dangerous and slippery slope of satire suddenly becoming misinformation… especially for a society that won’t fact check.

teleofobia

Pretty sure it's not a real BBC article. But it's scarily plausible.


David26175

Just checked the BBC site 🤣


wonder-maker

No, it's fake. Funny, but fake. While still true...


ToyVaren

Its been true since 1850 at least. Anti-lynching, anti-KKK, anti-hate etc laws didnt get made by pulling ideas out of a hat. Domestic terrorism virtually defines "the South."


OfCourseIKnowHim

And the PNW, where a bunch of Confederates fled to after the Civil War (a fact I was unaware of until just a few months ago).


nobod3

Do you have a link to an article? I knew we had white supremacists in Idaho’s pan handle… but all of PNW would be news to me.


OfCourseIKnowHim

https://katu.com/news/local/confederate-history-in-oregon-dates-back-to-early-pioneers https://crosscut.com/opinion/2021/07/pnw-confederate-flag-controversies-are-not-new (this one is an opinion piece from a site I’ve never heard of?) https://crosscut.com/2020/07/confederate-legacy-washington-state (same site, different article) https://www.historylink.org/File/8538 (“Dixie Raiders” during the civil war) https://mynorthwest.com/12916/why-there-are-so-many-confederate-monuments-in-seattle/ Of course, these are all really more about the South’s connection to the PNW (which I may be using incorrectly?). It always baffled me why there were white supremacists and confederate flag wavers up there.


David26175

Blacks were prohibited from setting in Oregon for the longest time. It has one of the lowest percentage of blacks in the nation.


OfCourseIKnowHim

Ah, yes, I forgot about that, too.


Yeshua_shel_Natzrat

so that explains why Oregon is so otherwise-inexplicably racist outside of Portland


minkey-on-the-loose

Gotta be from the Onion, NOBODY who breaths air is that stupid.


ToyVaren

Im flattered, but no, not the onion. :)


KirbyDaRedditor169

The Onion’s gotten less satirical over the years and more “hey look at this crazy thing that happened, now we’ll put it in a funny light, **we meme to ignore the pain.**” Trust me, the most recent time I saw an article from the Onion pop up on Reddit, it wasn’t satirical, the title just sounded like the writer of the article showed the article’s contents to their 5-year old kid and said “now think of an title for this”


LongPenStroke

It's pretty hard to make satire from headlines that SHOULD be satirical, but are true.


David26175

This sounds like something they would say in private at least.


DemythologizedDie

No, it's a joke.


dafunkmunk

Something that these moronic right wing terrorists don’t understand about terrorists like ISIS, is that they don’t think they’re terrorists. They think they are good people doing gods work and the people they’re killing are evil. You are the exact same as them, you are terrorists, and you and incredibly stupid


crackalaquin

The stupid irony is strong in these people


dirtdiggler_3000

This has to be satire, this sounds like an onion article


meezy-yall

Do you have a link to this ?


phdoofus

Pro-tip: MAGA is an organization like BLM and Antifa are organizations.


meezy-yall

I was pretty sure it was fake , especially with it “coming” from the BBC, I just wanted to double check, I just don’t agree with faking headlines that claim to espouse violence but anyway, BLM I think though is also an organization along with separately being a movement.


phdoofus

I'll grant you this one was a little subtle. It should be a bit more obvious than that.

lizfour

Definitely fake. Can tell by the photo quality, and well the font. First time I've seen italics or a serif font on the BBC website for a long while.


ihavahairyass

That was what I was thinking but wanted to confirm. Thanks for the heads up!


hp1068

Yeah, but it's not really fake. There just isn't this specific BBC headline. The sentiment is 100% real. And that's the problem.

So much division. Our government is loving it. Easier to control if half the people are at each other throat. Now just imagine if we a unite. I guess people are just too stupid and too prideful. Which will be our downfall

Hello! Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately it has been removed because you don't meet our karma threshold. You are not being removed for political orientation. If we were, why the fuck would we tell you your comment was being removed instead of just shadow removing it? We never have, and never will, remove things down politicial or ideological lines. Unless your ideology is nihilism, then fuck you. Let me be clear: The reason that this rule exists is to avoid unscrupulous internet denizens from trying to sell dong pills to our users. /r/PoliticalHumor mods reserve the RIGHT to hoard all of the dong pills to ourselves, and we refuse to share them with the community. If you want Serbo-Slokovian dong pills mailed directly to your door, become a moderator. If we shared the dong pills with the greater community, everyone would have massive dongs, and like Syndrome warned us about decades ago: "if everyone has massive dongs, nobody does."" If you wish to rectify your low karma issue, go and make things up in /r/AskReddit like everyone else does. Thanks for understanding!

Fake, but definitely almost believable. I could definitely see some militia group wearing MAGA hats say this on live television.

You can tell it's fake as the headline is way sharper than the rest of the image. But, it's definitely something one of them would say.
