Twitter Denies Appeal for The Babylon Bee

It's been a busy week in Big Tech censorship, as each day brings with it an update on how Twitter is punishing The Babylon Bee and those who dare to support the satire site. Twitter seems to be particularly relentless, though, in that it's denied The Babylon Bee's appeal when it comes to locking their account for promoting a post from March 15 that referred to Health & Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine, a biological man born Richard Levine, as their "man of the year."

The update came from CEO Seth Dillon on Wednesday night. He had tweeted a short time earlier calling out the platform's mission statement, which supposedly shows them in favor of free speech and expression. 

Dillon also further called out Twitter's "hateful conduct policy" when it comes to stating biological realities about gender, despite claiming to be in favor of freedom of expression in a thread on Thursday afternoon.

After censoring The Babylon Bee on Sunday, Twitter also punished editor-in-chief Kyle Mann and founder Adam Ford, who also co-founded and is the CEO of their news site, Not the Bee. Mann and Ford had not even been directly addressing Levine but rather were poking fun at Twitter with their tweets. The social media platform still found them to have been "violating our rules against hateful conduct." 

Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk also had his account censored for referring to Levine as Richard Levine and "a man."

Tucker Carlson, who was also censored by Twitter for standing by The Babylon Bee and Kirk, addressed the matter on his Wednesday night show, as Julio covered earlier on Thursday. 

In a speech earlier this year, Dillon had warned that "comedy is under attack right now" when it comes to "this whole weird thing where people are trying to limit what you can and can't say, what you can and can't joke about."
