By now we should all know that the current spate of 'Fact Checkers' are basically thralls and hacks who rush in to defend the Left at all costs. Period.
There are many ways they do this under the guise of 'Fact Checking'. Ignoring a mountain range of correct analysis to zoom in on one falsehood uttered by a non-leftist.

It sure makes a point. Though I'm always skeptical of memes to begin with, so I did some digging. I eventually found a similar meme. It wasn't the picture Mr. Wright used, but it was another one making a similar point:

So, we can have this meme instead:
