In the clown administration we are currently under, one of the best weapons available to conservatives is mockery. Perhaps no one does better on this front than the Babylon Bee. That’s probably why Twitter felt the need to censor them. It’s often said that our politics have become so ridiculous that it’s difficult to distinguish between satire and reality. This week, the Babylon Bee made a list of 70 times that a satirical story they wrote came true.
In one satirical story, the Babylon Bee wrote a headline titled “California School System To Feature Mandatory 2nd Grade Field Trips To Gay Bars”. The story hilariously titled the bill the ‘Gay Bar Field Trip Equality Act’. Then two years later, a Broward County Elementary school actually forced children to go to a gay bar on a field trip.

In another story, the Bee took aim at California yet again, saying that the state passed a bill that only allows toys that ‘confuse a child’s sexuality’. The headline read “California Bill Prohibits Stores From Selling Toys That Don’t Actively Confuse Children’s Sexuality”. A year and a half later, the state actually passed a law that forced stores to have a ‘gender neutral’ section for children, which included a section for toys and hygiene products. You can’t make this stuff up. The Babylon Bee did and it came true.
The Babylon Bee published an article that claimed new history books were being released for children, which would only include what happened in the ‘current year’ since anything before that is ‘problematic’. “New, Less Problematic History Books Will Only Include What Happened In The Current Year”, then less than two months later, Democratic lawmakers in Illinois proposed abolishing history lessons in public schools because they lead to “white privilege and a racist society”.
