The Real Reason Facebook Attacked a Popular Christian Website

As you know, social media organizations are targeting conservative websites and Youtube content. The latest is the Babylon Bee. Babylon Bee is a Christian satire site with an edge. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if a post is satire because so much of what we read and see these days is mindbogglingly and incomprehensively idiotic but true.

Babylon Bee even states that its articles are satire. Even so, Facebook issued a warning based on a heads-up  from

Left-wing Facebook censors warn Adam Ford of Babylon Bee for posting a piece entitled “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication” that “contains info disputed by (” But Snopes acknowledges that the piece is satire and the very title of the article obviously conveys satire (to belabor the obvious: buying a washing machine to “spin” news?!), not to mention that BB itself states that it posts Christian satire.

Most of the critical comments about the perceived snafu give the impression that the folks at Snopes and Facebook are morons. They should have known it was a satire site. But they did know. So why did they do it?

It’s a power play, a clever way to issue a warning without issuing an official warning. “How stupid of us. Sorry for the mistake.” Don’t believe it. It was a way of saying that everything is on the table for evaluation if it comes from conservative Christians, Libertarians, social-political conservatives, and just about anyone who opposes the Leftist agenda. “You’ve been warned (but not officially, but you get our meaning). We’re watching you, and you, and you.”

It’s not just Snopes that’s acting as a watchdog for Facebook. There’s a more sinister “advisor” to social media sites. The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a propaganda and fundraising machine that’s not interested in Poverty or Law, advises Google and its Facebook platform by referring “people to the leftist organization for those who want to do reputation research on sites and pages.” SPLC raises millions of dollars every year claiming to have a list of all known “hate groups.” Nothing could be further from the truth.

The following is from Google’s User Content General Guidelines:

Reputation research is important for identifying websites that promote hate and violence. The Pew Research Center, Anti-Defamation League, and the Southern Poverty Law Center are some reputable sources that can be used for reputation research.

The internet was designed to rid establishment media of gatekeepers. The three major networks monopolized the news for decades. Then came CNN. It went leftist and became the Clinton News Network.
