What I’m about to tell you is no joke, no fake news you can trust from The Babylon Bee.
Everyone knows there is a baby formula shortage in America, while only a smattering of folks may know that a lot of baby formula is going to illegals at the southern border.
We know, Jen Psaki, we know. It’s the law.
What you may not know is that, just this week, the Facebook police put on freeze a post showing a recipe for homemade baby formula.
Good grief. Maybe Elon Musk can “purchase” Facebook as well.
Charity James thought it might be civil, dare I say charitable, to post a vintage baby formula recipe from 1960. But now, Charity James is being labelled a pusher of misinformation, according to the always-tolerant Facebook police.
Miss James got the treatment, the dreaded blackout treatment of her post and the oh-so-official “False Information: Checked by independent fact-checkers” alert.
The fact-checker police asserted in all their credibility that “Karo syrup is a debated ingredient to be administered to babies. Karo syrup is a commercial corn syrup derived from the starch of maize.”
Never mind the fact that commercial brand baby formula is laced with corn syrups and additives that might not be so great for a baby as well.
So yes, perhaps Miss James’ recipe has corn syrup in it, but that isn’t the point. Make your own decision on whether or not you want sugars in your baby’s food. The point is that this move by Facebook may make one wonder if in fact the baby formula shortage is man-made. It may also make one wonder if social media is in fact just one big experiment on the human race. And finally, it may make one wonder if in fact the powers that own the Facebooks of the world do in fact want us all dead.
It is stories like this that make us either want to laugh at the comedy of it all or go buy a lifetime supply of vegetable seed for the apocalypse. At the moment we are conflicted on which one to go with.
