Twitter Loses It Over Satirical Site, Babylon Bee Awarding Rachel Levine Man Of The Year Award
Babylon Bee has drawn the ire of Twitter, setting off its speech police with its latest satirical headline.
This last Sunday, Twitter temporarily suspended them for violating their ‘hate speech’ policy, stating that their article was flagged for ‘hateful conduct.’
This was all set off after the satirical outlet put out an article in response to USA Today naming Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine “Woman of the year,” They, in turn, rewarded him as ‘Man of the Year.’
The post was a joke, touching on Levine’s recent appointment as USA Today’s “Woman of the Year,” but it is forbidden to point out reality nowadays.
This was seen when Congressman Jim Banks (R-Ind.) stated that Rachel Levine was a man; they suspended his Twitter account, then did the same with Focus on the Family, when Jim Daly stated the same thing.
If you dare speak to facts, not buy into the fantasy the Left is selling, they go about silencing you; how dare you not agree with them.
But turning back to Babylon Bee, they were told they would be suspended for 12 hours, but they would not reinstate them until they pulled down the Tweet.
This is just the latest crackdown by big tech to silence any dissenting voices from speaking out against leftist lunacy. Still, to Dillon’s credit, he refuses to back down or delete the tweet, even at the risk of permanently losing the account.
Good for him; we need to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech; they can try to silence free speech. Thankfully there are other platforms out there, like Parler, MeWe, Clouthub (to name a few), where free speech is not restricted unless it conforms to liberal ideology.
But this is deeper than this; this is a push by Big Tech to redefine terms. One of the things that got my account suspended from Twitter and Facebook is I dared to question this narrative. Much of this started with a conversation on Twitter where someone was trying to tell me that biology books are transphobic; I informed them that biology is at odds with transsexuality since biology is about reproduction and passing out genes to carry on the species. Homosexuality in all its forms is a dead-end biologically.
The funny thing is, we are told this about people, but why isn’t, or more accurately, why hasn’t this argument ever been used with cows, ducks, sheep, goats, or monkeys and apes? The reason is simple; there is no reality to it; feelings do not make a biological fact.
