SHOCK: Facebook Declares War on the Babylon Bee

Tyler O'Neil..Oct 20,2020

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 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.

“So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding. They say this article ‘incites violence,'” Dillon tweeted. “It’s literally a regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie!”

“In what universe does a fictional quote as part of an obvious joke constitute a genuine incitement to violence?” the CEO asked. “How does context not come into play here? They’re asking us to edit the article and not speak publicly about internal content reviews. Oops, did I just tweet this?”

Dillon told PJ Media that the Babylon Bee expected Facebook to reverse its actions once a person reviewed the article.

“We fully expected that once a real person reviewed the article, they’d see that it’s just a rehashed Monty Python joke put out there by a satire site. It literally couldn’t be more silly or harmless,” he said. “But they stuck with their original ruling and want us to edit the article before they’ll reinstate monetization on our page. Needless to say, we won’t be doing that.”

“This situation raises a serious question about double standards,” Dillon told PJ Media. “How fairly does Facebook enforce these standards? A Black Lives Matter leader recently said they’ll ‘burn down this system’ if change doesn’t happen. That’s allowed on Facebook. You can quote it. You can link to it. But you can’t rehash a Monty Python joke about burning a witch at the stake?”

“Facebook says in their community standards that they take context into account when evaluating threats and incitements to violence. The evidence here suggests otherwise,” he argued.

I see Facebook turning into the black knight on this topic. 

Thankfully, I’ve never had a Facebook account. Bragging about my kids and work and places I’ve been never appealed to me, so it was an instant dislike. A divorce prior to matrimony.

Best thing I did in years was leave Faceberg.  I was followed by friends and family.  I'm working on the few remainers...

Goebbels had nothing on this bunch.  And they are this nation's future?  Frightening.

The Federal Government needs to demonetize facebook. Split that misinformation system into 1000 baby books. This is the largest propaganda system on the planet.

"And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out! Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.'"

"Amen"

"Right! One . . . Two . . . Five!"

"Three, sir."

"Three!"

"Boom"

;)

I joined when it first started.  Back when you had to have an email address from a college or university to join.  Used it for a few years while in college to coordinate study groups and the like. 

Subsequently was tied to all these recent college graduates.  Stopped checking into the account once I realized that it was mostly idiots posting pictures of what they were about to eat.

Well, technically I'm more of a half and half kinda guy.  And for the moist part, it can't be the cheap stuff.

*DING*DING*DING*

Yup, Arthur himself threw the grenade.

As for anything resembling "greatness", LOL, there's a reason my username is Monty Python. There are only two other subjects I know as well as Monty Python stuff. Those are the Beatles and JRR Tolkien.

There's a reason the Leftists at FB and Twitter hate the B so much. Remember Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals?

5. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage."

Now that the Right is getting in on the game...

Same here.

I'm considered by several friends and family to be antisocial.

Why on earth would I engage the social media crap?
