Twitter Now Suspends Babylon Bee Editor Following ‘Joke’ About Satire Site Being Suspended

Also censors Tucker Carlson for posting screenshots of ‘hateful’ tweets

Twitter has doubled down on its suspension of the account belonging to the satirical website The Babylon Bee by suspending the personal account of its chief editor after he ‘joked’ about what it would take to lift the suspension.

The Babylon Bee’s editor-in-chief Kyle Mann is in ‘twitter jail’, locked out of his account for suggesting that Twitter might lift its original suspension “if we throw a few thousand Uighurs in a concentration camp.”

The comment was likely a reference to Twitter allowing Communist Chinese Party PR people and apologists to operate freely on the platform.

The tweet landed Mann a personal suspension for ‘hateful conduct’, as noted by Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon:

As we covered yesterday, Seth Dillon appeared on on Tucker Carlson’s show Monday to speak about the original suspension of the Babylon Bee by Twitter for for promoting a parody article about transgender Biden Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine being the “man of the year.”

The accounts of the Bee and its editor are eligible to be restored after a 12 hour suspension, but only once the original tweets have been deleted, an action that Dillon says will not be forthcoming.

“It’s like asking us to say 2+2=5,” Dillon told Carlson, adding “We’re sitting here looking at this email that tells us in order to reinstate our account and get access to be able to tweet again, we’ve got to delete this tweet. And the tweet’s a joke, that’s the first thing to get straight here. This is satire…”

“We don’t believe that facts are hate speech, that speaking truth is hate speech,” the CEO said, adding “At some point, people need to stick by this, Tucker. 

“They’re asking us to basically bend the knee and say ‘we admit that this is hateful conduct, please keep us on your platform.’ And we’re not going to do that, so we don’t know where this ends,” he further urged.

Watch:

Carlson himself tweeted that both the posts of the Bee and Mann are “true” with screenshots of them, prompting Twitter to censor the post. In its place now appears the note “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.”

The platform has likely stopped short of suspending Carlson knowing that it would garner massive media attention.

    Video: Leftist Talking Heads Claim Letting Trump Back On Facebook Will “Destroy Democracy”

    “Do you want to be that institution that really helps take down the country?”

    Reacting to the news that Facebook is to allow President Trump access to its platform after a two year ban, leftist ‘journalists’ on MSNBC claimed that it will “destroy democracy”.

    Trump derangement syndrome is well and truly back, with New York Times editor Mara Gay, Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway, and historian Jon Meacham crying about Meta helping to “take down the country” by allowing Trump to return.

    Conway said “They think, ‘Well oh, the fire’s out, so even though this guy has a cache of matches and gasoline that he carries around with him, let’s let him just play with matches again.”

    Meacham described Facebook’s decision on Trump as a “devil’s bargain” claiming that Meta needs more money and Trump needs to gain relevance again.

    “If you are one of these companies, do you want to be the means by which an autocrat mounts an assault on the Constitution itself?” he added.

    Gay chimed in “As a country or as a company, you don’t want to hand over the keys to democracy to have someone destroy that democracy. Do you want to be that institution that really helps take down the country?” 

    She went on to compare Meta’s decision to reinstate Trump to chemical companies pushing for wars so they can sell weapons.

    EU Globalist Threatens Elon Musk With “Sanctions” If He Allows Free Speech on Twitter

    Unelected technocrat demands billionaire ‘behave’ himself.

    A top EU technocrat has threatened Elon Musk with “sanctions” if he allows free speech on Twitter, asserting that the billionaire has not ‘behaved in a decent way’.

    The comments were made by EU Commission VP for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova at the annual Davos meeting of globalists.

    “The time of the Wild West is over,” Jourova told EuroNews. “We will have the Digital Services Act [DSA]. We will have the Code of Practice as a part of this legislation.”

    “So, after Mr Musk took over Twitter with his ‘freedom of speech absolutism,’ we are the protectors of freedom of speech as well,” she added. “But at the same time, we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on. So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise there will be sanctions.”

    Jourova’s justification is a complete misnomer because illegal content is already banned on Twitter. She is obviously trying to conflate illegal content with offensive speech in an attempt to make the two indistinguishable.

    In a separate video interview, Jourova suggested that Musk had not ‘behaved’ in a ‘decent’ way like his predecessors at Twitter. In other words, he refused to bend the knee to globalists who want their draconian censorship agenda to be re-imposed.

    “We have the rules which have to be complied with and otherwise there will be sanctions,” barked Jourova, an unelected bureaucrat.

    Jourova previously attracted controversy at Davos for predicting that America would soon have similar ‘hate speech’ laws to Europe, effectively calling for the elimination of the First Amendment.

    “Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourova said.

    Throughout the elitist summit, technocrats pushed the idea that there needs to be a continuing crackdown on “hate and misinformation,” a contrived justification designed to censor speech which is critical of their own agenda to create a new world order.
