newspaper article calling metal fans semi-human barbarians is actually a joke on metal fans!

where did you get that idea? that's not 'fake news', it's a notorious ultra-right wing opinion page; there is no 'fake news' on there!

haha, dude, look at the writing on the scroll:

semiotics
ebonics
intertextuality
postmodernism

also, another headline:
CHEERFUL OSAMA BIN LADEN PAYS TRIBUTE TO TOMMY THOMPSON IN NEW VIDEO

don't think it's real...

kid, this well-known opinion site has been up for years, and is quoted in the major national news media often; albeit as a crackpot utlra-right outpost. read past the headlines; read the actual pieces, you'll see (well, maybe you won't...) that it's a collection of uber-conservative opinion pieces and editorials. it's not news, and it's not fake!

but--hey whatever is easier for you to understand; that's cool...

hmm--on closer look it struck me as being similar to The Onion, but who knows what they're up to

either scenario they sound righty-o bonkers, heh

blabbermouth posted that too. i wish they hadn't given that guy's opinion more publicity. it's just going to rile up everyone who looks at blabbermouth and all the dimebag fans on there, as well as other metalheads, are just going to get all up in arms about it and it just isn't necessary. i read half of it and then stopped because i really didn't care what the guy thought.

William Grim (the author of this article) doesn't actually exist; it's just a pseudonym for a satirist. As far as whether or not the opinion pieces are real, they seem a bit too ridiculous but you never know. The logo still doesn't make sense -- a right-wing site would have very little to do with semiotics, ebonics, intertextuality and postmodernism, unless it's making fun of left-wingers who are obsessed with those concepts. a bit of a reach though.

but check out other articles by "William Grim" on sites like Broken Newz:

Straight Man, Neutered Dog to Wed in Natick, Massachusetts

Third Disney Character Tests Positive For HIV

etc etc.

i'll concede that this is a conservative whack-job site whether it's fake or real, but I still think the joke's on us.
