If you haven’t noticed; the Werkes links to Babylon Bee, for our money, funnier and more on point than either the Onion or Saturday Night Live. Which is the problem, as far as liberal media is concerned. Because the Bee — while it is ecumenical in its targets — comes from a conservative and Christian perspective. PJ Media reports:
On Tuesday, Facebook stood by its decision to demonetize the Christian satire site The Babylon Bee over a satire article regurgitating a witch joke from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Facebook claimed that the article “Senator Hirono demands ACB [Amy Coney Barrett] be weighed against a duck to see if she is a witch” actually “incites violence.” The social media platform demanded that the Babylon Bee edit the article and not speak publicly about the review, but Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon went public.
Here is the Bee’s offending satirical post:
WASHINGTON, D.C.—After two days of Amy Coney Barrett gracefully and stoically answering questions with perfect recall and no notes, suspicions grew on Capitol Hill that she might be a practitioner of the dark arts. “Oh, she’s a witch alright, just look at her!” said Senator Hirono.
“Just look at the way she’s dressed and how she’s so much prettier and smarter than us! She’s in league with Beelzebub himself, I just know it! We must burn her!”
Senator 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.”
Other great headlines from Babylon Bee:
- “Democrats hiss in terror as ACB pulls out crucifix.”
- “Democrats criticize ACB for constantly interrupting their campaign speeches.”
- “Twitter shuts down entire network to slow spread of negative Biden news.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: These are the same “gatekeepers” who tried to quash the New York Post’s expose of the Hunter Biden laptops, calling it “Russian disinformation.” The same people — we’re looking at you, James Clapper and Adam Schiff — who bit hard on Christopher Steele’s grab bag of Hillary-financed Russian disinformation.
