Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Babylon Bee on His Campaign Payroll, Site Immediately Starts Putting Out Anti-Trump Propaganda
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is paying the Babylon Bee, a conservative satire website, and, surprise surprise, they are now producing propaganda against Donald Trump heading into the 2024 presidential primary.
Some of the anti-Trump propaganda produced by the Babylon Bee on DeSantis’ behalf can be seen here:
Journalist Laura Loomer found the receipts and posted evidence showing that DeSantis and his affiliated political action committee paid over $20,000 to the Babylon Bee.
Loomer followed up with Babylon Bee owner Seth Dillon who said that DeSantis was paying off his satire page for “consulting”, “joke/speech writing”, and “helping him find funny angles.”
Big League Politicsreported 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:
Additionally, pastors were arrested and thrown in jail because they held services during DeSantis’ lockdown. The DeSantis administration grotesquely infringed upon religious liberty and made a mockery of the 1st Amendment during the pandemic:
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 will continue to aggressively co-opting the conservative movement to destroy MAGA and America First heading into 2024. He is emerging as the most dangerous RINO alive.
