Facebook Cracks Down on Babylon Bee

In a sane world, this story about Facebook deplatforming the Babylon Bee would have appeared in the Babylon Bee. Since it is actually on the level, Fox News covered it:

[T]he Bee ran a story with the headline, “Senator Hirono Demands ACB Be Weighed Against A Duck To See If She Is A Witch,” alluding to the intense grilling Barrett faced from Hawaii’s junior senator, who asked the judge if she had ever “sexually assaulted” anyone and scolded the nominee for using the term “sexual preference” to describe the LGBTQ community, which Barrett apologized for.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary was amended immediately afterward to confirm that ACB had committed a thought crime by uttering the previously PC term “sexual preference.”

According to the satirical piece, Hirono “then pulled a live duck out of a massive burlap sack next to her and announced: ‘In addition to being a Senator, I am also quite wise in the ways of science. Everyone knows witches burn because they are made of wood. I think I read that somewhere. Wood floats, and so do ducks– so logically, if Amy Coney Barrett weighs as much as this duck I found in the reflection pool outside, she is a witch and must be burned.'”

The satire stung, even if goofy. On behalf of the liberal establishment, Facebook cracked down on the Babylon Bee. The pretext was lame even by thought police standards.

Facebook pulled down the article and demonetized BB’s page. Gasps CEO Seth Dillon,

“They say this article ‘incites violence.’ It’s literally a regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie!”

Meanwhile, Black Lives Matter maniacs call for actual violence:

Dillon then slammed the tech giant for allowing an inciteful quote from a Black Lives Matter leader, who called to “burn down this system”…

Big Tech censorship is a one-way street.
