Babylon Bee’s Return To Twitter Is Triumphant, When Liberals Here How Many Followers They Now Have, Heads Will Explode

    Seth Dillon, the CEO of the infamous Christian satire site, the Babylon Bee, revealed that their recently restored Twitter account has exploded with new followers, which is exactly the kind of news that is going to make liberals heads explode. The Bee was originally banned for refusing to delete a tweet that outraged the social media platform’s former management.

    But hey, as Bob Dylan once said, the times, they are a’changin’ or something like that. Billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought out the company, fired most of the staff — which we now know were useless to begin with — and has started ushering in a new era of free speech for the platform, restoring accounts that were banned for unfair reasons such as the Bee and former President Donald Trump.

    According to the Daily Wire, “The publication was banned from the social media platform earlier this year for an article that jokingly named Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, as ‘Man of the Year.’ Elon Musk, a vocal fan of The Babylon Bee and the new owner of Twitter, consulted with the company’s leadership before launching his bid to acquire the platform, according to Dillon.”

    The report continued, “The censorship effort greenlit by former Twitter executives, many of whom were summarily fired after Musk purchased the company, appears to have backfired. Dillon remarked that The Babylon Bee would soon surpass two million followers after boasting 1.5 million when the company was locked out of the platform in March.”

    “We now have more followers, reach, and revenue than ever before,” Dillon revealed, “not because we acquiesced, but because we stubbornly refused to bend the knee for tyrants.”

    Dillon continued to celebrate the big win for his publication during an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News.

    “Twitter’s ban was publicized, Elon Musk saw it and was outraged by it. Not because he’s a right-winger, but because he believes in the First Amendment,” the top-rated primetime anchor said during the program. “Fast forward to today: Elon Musk now owns Twitter.”

    Dillon went on to say that Musk is posing a serious treat to the system of censorship that has been established by radical progressives who have been using the platform to share their twisted views on a number of critical cultural and political issues, including gender identity.

    The CEO said that Musk has a “tough battle ahead of him.”

    Here’s more from the DW:

    Americans with conservative viewpoints have faced censorship from the nation’s major institutions, from government entities to technology conglomerates, as Musk himself recently acknowledged. Libs of TikTok, a popular account that focuses on left-wing activists, was temporarily locked out of Twitter several months ago for a “hateful conduct” warning. Allie Beth Stuckey, a commentator and podcast host, was suspended from Twitter on two separate occasions, once for saying that a transgender woman competing as an Olympic weightlifter is “still a man” and again for denouncing a Fox News segment that highlighted a family who claimed their child was transgender.

    Dillon added last month that Twitter would have allowed The Babylon Bee to regain access to the account if it had opted to remove the post calling Levine a man. “We could have restored our account at any time by deleting the tweet, but we refused. It was the right call,” he said. “Never censor yourself, and never apologize for speaking truth.”

    Musk recently told advertisers and members of the public that he bought Twitter to facilitate open dialogue between citizens with differing opinions. The world’s richest man has nevertheless faced aggressive internal opposition from Twitter employees, causing him to dismiss some workers who took their criticism public.

    Twitter also restored Jordan Peterson’s account after he also was banned for not deleting a tweet critical of radical gender ideology.
