Big Tech loves to censor The Babylon Bee’s satirical posts.

The Babylon Bee is a satire site that provides comic relief from the chaos of today’s world. According to its site, “We write satire about Christian stuff, political stuff, and everyday life.”

In June, The Babylon Bee posted a video about a pregnant Ken doll. This came at a time in society where there are pregnant male emojis and the newest Supreme Court justice can’t define what a woman is. The Babylon Bee’s parody was a jab at the hysterical lunacy of the left. 

Facebook slapped a fact-check notice on the post that read “Independent fact-checkers say this information has no basis in fact.” The post was a joke. Of course it had no basis in fact. 

The Babylon Bee Editor-in-Chief Kyle Mann said in a tweet that TikTok also censored the satire site. A user tagged Mann with a screenshot of The Babylon Bee’s banned account and said, “HEY WHAT IS THIS MADNESS… @The_Kyle_Mann what happened to @TheBabylonBee on the Tok?!” Mann replied with a tweet that said, “We got perma banned. They did not say why.” 

MRC Free Speech America asked why TikTok banned The Babylon Bee. Our team received no reply.

It could be that TikTok censored The Babylon Bee because it doesn’t post content that feeds into progressiveness or leftist delusions. The group simply pokes fun at leftist woke propaganda in a joking manner. 

Big Tech has now gotten so out of control that tech companies can’t even acknowledge jokes or satirical posts.
