Earlier this week, The Babylon Bee caught the wrath of the woke warriors at Twitter when the satirical outlet awarded its “Man of the Year” award to Biden’s Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine.
The joke, which was clearly a parody of Levine’s recently awarded title of “woman of the year” from USA Today, was not received well by Twitter’s speech police, who hit the Bee’s account with a ban for breaking the platform’s rules against “hateful conduct.”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
