It occurred to me that this was getting very close to the neighborhood of Poe's Law, but dealing with whackjob Leftist organization rather than nutcase Fundamentalists. Poe's Law, of course, reads:
Perhaps there should be some similar "law" that said something along the lines of:"Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of Fundamentalism that SOMEONE won't mistake for the real thing."
For insight into this situation, I think that presentation "How Modern Liberals Think" is essential."Without a corroborating press release, it is impossible to tell if story about a Leftist organization's stance on a subject is genuine or a satire."
