This is a real shame, because I really liked the Babylon Bee, I thought they were funny, but it turns out, they now have a raging case of Stage 5 TDS and on the DeSantis 2024 establishment bandwagon. Turns out DeSantis paid the Bee over 20K to write jokes for him, so he can sound actually “funny.” Reporter Laura Loomer broke the story:
Earlier I posted an expenditure report from DeSantis’s PAC which paid @TheBabylonBee $21,500.
I said their post below is anti Trump propaganda paid for by DeSantis.
Babylon Bee asked me to retract. They deny attacking Trump for $,but confirmed to me they DO consult for DeSantis https://t.co/MbdHRqrkUv pic.twitter.com/90EvLZ46Au

And now, we’re seeing that right after the Bee joined “Team DeSantis” they immediately went very negative on Trump, and you’ll notice, it’s not even funny.
That’s what TDS does, folks, it sucks the humor out of you.

Big League Politics reported on DeSantis’ history of supporting brutal lockdowns during the COVID pandemic, shuttering church services and then shilling for the experimental vaccine:
“A common trope from supporters of the likely presidential run of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is that he stopped COVID lockdowns in his state during the height of the pandemic while President Donald Trump was pushing them from the White House.
But the record shows that this is not what occurred. DeSantis used his authority as governor to enforce lockdowns, shuttering businesses, and use the power of the state to punish noncompliance with his edicts.
Video from June 2020 shows DeSantis threatening bars with revoking their liquor licenses unless they abided by his arbitrary restrictions enacted supposedly in the name of science:
The “Grim Reaper of business licenses” could get involved if bars and restaurants did not follow the state’s pandemic restrictions, says @GovRonDeSantis.

DeSantis, like Trump, has shilled hard for the experimental COVID-19 vaccines as well, assuring the public that they were safe for usage and would stop transmission when that turned out to be a lie.
“If you’re vaccinated and you test positive but you don’t get sick, well the name of the game is to keep people out of the hospital,” DeSantis said in July 2021. “Seventy-five percent of Floridians over the age of 50 have gotten shots, so we think that’s really, really positive.”
“If you are vaccinated, fully vaccinated, the chance of you getting seriously ill or dying from COVID is effectively zero,” he said “If you look at the people that are being admitted to hospitals, over 95% of them are either not fully vaccinated or not vaccinated at all. And so these vaccines are saving lives. They are reducing mortality.”’
DeSantis is fast-becoming the most dangerous establishment puppet around.
