Just a few moths ago, people on the left were claiming Donald Trump won the election because of fake news. Now they spread fake news almost every single day.
A false story that spread quickly yesterday about Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, is completely misleading. It was a joke he made in his yearbook.
America Magazine reports:
No, Neil Gorsuch did not start a ‘Fascism Forever’ club at his Jesuit high school
As a student at the tony, Jesuit-run Georgetown Preparatory School, Neil Gorsuch, the son of a Reagan administration official, was known as something of a conservative firebrand among the mostly center-left student body and faculty.
In the 1980s, students at the D.C.-area boarding school spent the minutes before student government meetings hashing out the political debates of the day.
Mr. Gorsuch, who was nominated on Jan. 31 to the Supreme Court by President Donald J. Trump, participated in the informal debates, where he was routinely teased, accused of being “a conservative fascist.” No shrinking violet, he would shoot back, taking on the liberal ethos of the school and even arguing with religion teachers about the liberal theological trends in vogue at the time…
It was “a total joke,” said Steve Ochs, a history teacher at Georgetown Prep who was the student government advisor during Mr. Gorsuch’s junior and senior years at the Bethesda, Md., school.

Just another reminder to ignore the liberal media!
