Brutal Babylon Bee

The growing irony with Babylon Bee is that its daily satire moves closer to reality everyday.

Babylon Bee Twitter account suspended

As ever with the far left dictators in Sillycon Valley, even parody is considered subversive.

Babylon Bee took to writing the following letter informing readers of the ridiculous suspension. Twitter reinstated the account after claiming an all too common ‘mistake’.

Time for social media giants to lose their legal protection. If they are going to shut down comedy, they are exercising editorial control which means they deserve to be treated like any other media company.

Readers of The Bee,

In case you hadn’t heard, Twitter suspended our account yesterday. In an email to us, they claimed we violated their rules against “platform manipulation and spam.” The email included a warning that that if we tried to open another account, that new account would be suspended, too.

We published screenshots of the email and our suspended Twitter page, and called on our followers to make some noise. We started trending almost immediately and Twitter responded by reinstating us, saying we’d been suspended “by mistake.” So we’re back on Twitter, at least for the time being. But we share the concerns of others who’ve rightly observed that these “mistakes” tend to work in one direction.

We’re grateful to have followers who aren’t afraid to speak up and hold these big tech companies accountable. But there are no guarantees. We couldn’t be sure they’d reinstate our account. And we can’t know if they will the next time they make a “mistake.” But we can do our best to prepare for a worst-case scenario. At least we can if we have your help.

When we first launched our subscription service, the primary reason we gave for supporting us was to help us become less dependent on big tech companies. We explained:

We depend on Facebook and Twitter to drive traffic, and Google Ads to monetize it. Without these networks, we’d have no revenue to cover our expenses. And as you’re probably aware, none of these companies are friendly to Christians or conservatives. In fact, that’s a severe understatement. The control these companies exercise—and the outright hostility they display toward those with more traditional views and values—has us deeply concerned about our future as a publisher of Christian satire. But here’s the thing: If just a small fraction of our readers become paid subscribers, we’d have enough funding to survive without running ads, effectively eliminating our dependence on these big tech companies.

The more subscribers we have, the less we have to worry about our dependence on Twitter and the other big tech companies. So I’ll close with the same call to action you might have heard from us before: If you value The Babylon Bee and want to see us prevail against Twitter and anyone else who might seek to discredit or deplatform us, please consider becoming a subscriber. Your support will make a difference.

From our whole team, thank you for your loyal readership and support.

Babylon Bee’s guide to the news cycle

Never a truer word than said in jest.

Brutal Babylon Bee on Kamala Harris

From the Babylon Bee:

U.S.—Supporters of Kamala Harris have been eagerly awaiting an announcement on who her VP pick will be when she takes over as president approximately 5 minutes after Joe Biden is inaugurated. According to sources close to the campaign, she is already vetting possible candidates for the job. 

“I am proud to announce I will soon be announcing my pick for Vice President of the United States,” said Harris. “We have searched all across this great land. While I cannot yet confirm who my pick will be, I can say this: my pick for VP will be even MORE of a woman and even MORE of color than I am. It will be the most colorful and womanly team ever!” She then threw her head back and cackled maniacally.

Joe Biden was also thrilled to hear the news that he would be getting not just one, but two female vice presidents.

The VP search has stalled since it has proven difficult to find a woman of color who survived both Kamala Harris’ pro-abortion policies as well as her aggressive imprisonment of minorities. In a statement, the campaign also promised to announce a pick while all The Babylon Bee writers are sleeping so they won’t have a chance to write a funny headline about it.

Abolish the Police? – White Liberal vs Black perspectives

Ami Horowitz made an interesting video about the age-old problem of white liberals speaking on behalf of people that they don’t understand, much less consulted. Recall the Babylon Bee parody on this very topic just this week.

As Thomas Sowell correctly pointed out,

Activism is a way for useless people to feel important, even if the consequences of their activism are counterproductive for those they claim to be helping and damaging to the fabric of society as a whole.

Truth in fiction

Babylon Bee strikes again.

“MENLO PARK, CA—A new nonprofit organization is teaming up with app developers to help people of colour find and adopt white liberals to speak for them. The program is called Adopt A Voice and will help people of black and brown descent express what they truly desire, think, and mean to say.

I signed up for it,” said African American Bradley Trent from Columbus, Ohio. “They paired me up with a 37-year-old white girl named Claire who claims to be bisexual but as far as I can tell she just really likes cats.

When asked what his opinion of the program was, Claire responded on Bradley’s behalf, “Bradley is just so grateful to have his voice heard especially on key issues like women’s right to choose, climate change, and especially trans issues.”

Bradley later commented, “I had no idea that’s what I meant to say. Amazing.

At Adopt a Voice we know that speaking and thinking for yourself can be challenging. We have a huge team of interpreters who know exactly what ethnic minorities are really thinking, what they really want, and what they really mean to say,” said program director Eve Zohar. “We know that every person of colour will thank us for what we say on their behalf, and if they don’t they hate themselves.”

Babylon Bee slams the cancel culture mob with this parody

Parody website Babylon Bee posted this today:

After over 100 years of selling its caramel popcorn snack under the name Cracker Jack, Frito-Lay announced today that it would be rebranded as the less offensive “Caucasian Jack.”

“We are very sorry to all the crack—er, I mean, Caucasians we have hurt over the years,” said a spokesperson. “Cracker is an offensive stereotype, and we must make sure that all foods and snack products are culturally sensitive. Think about all the white people who have had to suffer in silence as tens of thousands of baseball fans sang out the hurtful lyrics ‘Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks.'”

“No more. The bigotry stops today.”

Who said there wasn’t truth in fiction?

WaPo has a coming to God moment

One could be easily forgiven for thinking this was the Babylon Bee. Nope. It’s WaPo.

WaPo wrote,

The country faces an election of choices as clear as any we have had in modern times, with clear consequences as well.

Vote for President Trump and you are voting for the Constitution, military strength and robust economic growth.

Vote for former vice president Joe Biden and you are voting for bureaucrats, appeasement abroad, and economic entropy….

…Trump is chaos theory contained in a man, an explosive combination of complete candor as to what he thinks and feels, a willingness to brawl, an almost animal energy for the fray.

Biden is clearly not that. He is mostly invisible these days, but he hasn’t just lost a step. He’s lost a lap. His White House would be marked by echo-chamber enthusiasts and the control of the appointees he brings along with him, a haphazard and dangerous step for the republic…

Nothing has worked to slow Trump down, so now it must be racial politics, the scourge of the nation put not to the service of justice for the poor, who Trump had served quite well with good jobs until the Chinese Communist Party lied about a deadly virus unleashed on the world and upended the blue-collar boom. That boom is returning. It would once again lift all communities.

For WaPo to be publishing this type of article shows how exposure to sunlight can cure Trump Derangement Syndrome.

As we keep reminding our readers. The Democrats are simply not making a strong case as a credible alternative to Trump, especially the behaviour of Democrat state governors and mayors during COVID19 and their empty virtue signalling, weakness and radical responses to the ‘protest anything under the banner of BLM‘ movements.

Even we Aussies can tell that the majority of Americans are patriots when push comes to shove.

Never forget that “lived experience” is a powerful force. We don’t think Trump’s first 3.5 years will be forgotten at the polling booth. Outside of all his bluster, vulgarity and unorthodox style, he’s made a lot of headway.

We have often said that journalistic integrity will only return when the mainstream media loves America more than it hates Trump. How long till the rest of WaPo channels Hugh Hewitt?
