I have to add this disclaimer to this blog to avoid angering the great gods of humanity’s intellectual progress.
Poe Slaw is a play on words. This blog is actually an exercise in Poe’s Law, which claims that it is difficult (and perhaps impossible) to distinguish a parody of ultraconservativism from the real thing because the extreme right-wing position is inherently ridiculous. That is, the satirical practice and actual practice of ultraconservatism seem equally insane because that is the nature of this illogical, decency-defying polito-cultural philosophy.
This blog is pure SATIRE. It is not really an unbiased news source. That’s a mockery of FOX NEWS and other sources (from both sides, I suppose) that claim to be neutral. I am not really an ignorant fundamentalist who fishes in his subdivision’s pond or loiters at Walmart. I am actually a full-time student who was fed up with tea party propaganda and journalists’ lack of responsibility in reporting events with principle. I appreciate the positive attitude of people like Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart; they may be comedians, but they hit the issues on the head.
If nothing else, I hope you can get a few chuckles from this blog and maybe even worry a bit about its resemblance to the trash that millions watch or read everyday.
And that’s that. I wanted to keep the satirical nature of the blog a secret for a bit longer. However, it only took a day for me to realize that being too deep undercover in an ocean of sharks can be both depressing and dangerous. That’s especially true since a shark hunt will happen soon.
Either that or Obama will dry up the oceans with his communist NASA death ray. Golly, that’s odd — have you ever wondered how “NASA” and “NAZI” sound and look so similar? Conspiracy is in the air, and rest assured Poe will continue to be here to give YOU the facts you deserve. The heapings of truth will keep on comin’!
