Snopes Attacks WashTimes, Daily Wire on Frederica Wilson's Gaffe on Censoring Mockery

The "fact checkers" at Snopes.com are running to the defense of liberal Democrats again in a July 10 post headlined "Did Rep. Frederica Wilson Advocate Prosecuting People Who ‘Make Fun’ of Congress?"

The answer is yes. But David Mikkelson at Snopesinsisted "context is key," that conservative media outlets like the Washington Times and the Daily Wire skipped over how Wilson was responding to rude Facebook memes. 

What Wilson said was an obvious fact: 

“Those people who are online making fun of members of Congress are a disgrace. And there's no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable. [?] We’re gonna shut them down! And work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted! You cannot intimidate members of Congress, threaten members of Congress. It is against the law, and it’s a shame in this United States of America.”

In the Democrat's defense, Snopes actually turned to FoxNews.com, which added "Wilson’s comments came amid a controversy over a Facebook group that includes Border Patrol agents and where they allegedly mocked and posted graphic content about members of Congress, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez."
