I just realized that we’re not just the news now – we are OFFICIALLY the fact-checkers. And DISSENTER by Gab is why.
Hat tips to Q, Andrew Torba, and our own thinkthinkthink.
Here is where it started.

Well, follow that link….
Just read this article and you can see why it raises eyebrows:
DAVIE, Fla. – A Tesla that crashed and caught fire Sunday afternoon in Davie caught fire again after it was towed away, police said.
The driver of the 2016 Tesla Model S, later identified as Omar Awan, overcorrected and lost control of the car, which traveled across three lanes on Flamingo Road, struck several trees in the median and caught fire, Davie police Sgt. Mark Leone said.
Awan, who was “burned beyond recognition,” was pronounced dead at the scene, Leone said.
Witnesses said the Tesla was traveling anywhere from 75 to 90 mph when it crashed.
Early the next morning, the Tesla reignited and caught fire again at A Superior Towing from a ruptured battery, Leone said.
“We’ve been out here three times already,” Davie Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert DiFerdinando told Local 10 News.
Tesla released a statement about the crash Monday, saying the company would cooperate with investigators.
“We understand that speed is being investigated as a factor in this crash, and know that high speed collisions can result in a fire in any type of car, not just electric vehicles,” the statement read.https://www.local10.com/news/florida/broward/tesla-that-burned-in-fatal-crash-in-davie-catches-fire-again-at-tow-yard
SO – we have one OMAR AWAN who dies in BROWARD COUNTY – home district of one DEBBIE WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ – of a strange ONE-CAR ACCIDENT in a SPEEDING VEHICLE that goes OUT OF CONTROL and then BURNS UP. And the guy is BURNED BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION.
Almost sounds like it can’t be real. And yet this is local news – normally trusted for stuff like accidents and whatnot.
There is another link to an earlier article with MORE details.
DAVIE, Fla. – A driver was killed Sunday after crashing his Tesla into a tree along Flamingo Road in Davie, authorities said.
https://wqth.wordpress.com/2019/02/28/dear-maga-20190228-open-topic/comment-page-2/#comment-86165The crash caused the Tesla to burst into flames.
Paramedics pronounced the driver dead at the scene. Witnesses at the scene said the Tesla was traveling at a high rate of speed before the crash.
“There was just no way anybody could have saved whoever was in there,” witness Mark Dodds, who lives nearby, said.
Police closed a portion of the southbound lanes of Flamingo Road near the crash.
In May, two teenagers were killed when their speeding Tesla crashed into a wall in Fort Lauderdale. The crash caused the car’s electric battery to catch fire.
The National Transportation Safety Board found that the Tesla’s lithium ion battery, which was the source of the fire, reignited twice — as police transported the car away from the crash scene and again when investigators tried to remove the battery from the burned-out remains of the vehicle.
Tesla has defended its electric-powered cars, saying high-speed collisions can cause fires in both gas and electric vehicles.https://www.local10.com/news/florida/broward/tesla-crashes-into-tree-in-davie-killing-driver-police-say
SO – the real question for me was whether this guy was THE Omar Awan, or just ANY Omar Awan.
A quick search of the name and the location led me to THIS article:
A DOCTOR you say?
Yes. Almost 50 years old. Definitely NOT “The” Omar Awan.
A physician and father of five was killed Sunday afternoon when he lost control of his 2016 Tesla Model S sedan and hit a tree about two miles from his home in Davie, police said. The Tesla was engulfed in flames and later, while in a tow yard, reignited and burned several times.https://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/davie/fl-ne-davie-tesla-crash-victim-20190226-story.html
After speaking with the Davie police department’s traffic homicide investigators, the NTSB decided not to investigate the crash, Christopher O’Neil, chief of media relations, said Tuesday. The NTSB investigates all aviation crashes but not all automotive incidents.
At that point, I went back to The Q Tree with the happy news.

Different guy. Interesting coincidence, IMO, unless it’s some kind of REALLY FAKE news.

And then I got to thinking more about things.
I could use my Dissenter browser extension to go BACK to the two articles above, where WHICH Omar Awan was not answered, and WARN people that this wasn’t “The” Omar Awan.
Which I did.
Then I decided to get fancy and say something at the article that I used to solve the problem:
Notice that NOBODY can remove these, except Gab, which is severely disinclined to do so.
That’s when it hit me – WE were now SNOPES, and nobody can stop us.
With those thoughts, I went back to The Q Tree and bragged some more!

Holy moly! Could it be him? Burned beyond recognition? Hmmm.

Thanks for this – I’m going to do a big story. We are the fact checkers now.
This is where I started getting downright giddy with the idea of replacing the EVIL Snopes!!!
Now THAT was when I began thinking of my favorite misleading news site,
Cloverfield – whoops – I mean THE CLOVER CHRONICLE.
Surely they would have this story – right? OH HELL YEAH!!!
Notice the frigging link at the bottom! Fox News!
But is it a link to an actual story? NO! Of course not. It’s a link to the Fox News homepage – just BULLSHIT to give an “official-looking” link.
Still, there’s value because of a graphic video of the burning wreck.
So what do I do? I am FINALLY able to TALK BACK TO CLICKBAIT!
“Browardstan”! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Hey – you ought to hear my made-up names for redneck and hillbilly towns and regions – I’m an equal opportunity joker! And it’s JUST A FRIGGIN’ JOKE.
Ya Democrat MAROONS! 😉
So where was I?
Yes. We are NOW the news – and MOAR.
“WE. IS. SNOPES.”
Oh, how I love that.
And we can leave TIPS for each other, DEBUNKS for each other, and all kinds of USEFUL stuff, too.
We may not LOOK like Snopes…..
……but frankly, I think we look more respectable…..
…..although, I just had to entertain the idea of having fun with our future.
Enjoy the future, people. We appear to be the early adopters.
Just ask Q.
