Diversity SWAT Teams And The State Of The Union With Guest Host Adam Ford

This is the Babylon Bee weekly news podcast for the week of 2/5/2020 with special guest host ADAM FORD.

In this episode of The Babylon Bee podcast, editor-in-chief Kyle Mann and creative director Ethan Nicolle welcome the creator… of the Babylon Bee: Adam Ford. They discuss the week’s top stories like CNN’s coverage of the problematic panel of experts doing something about the deadly coronavirus, now multiple Bernie staffers advocating violent revolution, and Trump’s State Of The Union address where the guys make predictions about media reactions (by the time this episode airs, you can see how prophetic they were).

In the subscriber portion, Kyle, Ethan, and Adam talk Superbowl half-time sex show, Brexit finally happening, and how our government’s legitimacy is forever gone now since Republican Senators didn’t just do whatever Democrats say.

Adam Ford is now in the real news business.

Check out his new site DISRN. You can also sign up for the daily Adam Ford Newsletter.

Show Outline

Introduction – Kyle and Ethan welcome the Babylon Bee creator Adam Ford, discuss Kyle’s recent trip to a libertarian conference, and come up with a theme song for DISRN.

Story 1 – CNN Condemns D-Day Soldiers For Lack Of Diversity

Trump tweeted out a photo of his task force. I guess it was all white males.

“We will continue to monitor the ongoing developments,” the President said in his post. “We have the best experts anywhere in the world, and they are on top of it 24/7!”

CNN recently posted an Coronavirus task force another example of Trump administration’s lack of diversity…

“It’s a statement that’s as predictable as it is infuriating: President Donald Trump’s administration lacks diversity… They communicate a “patronage network that everyone is operating under,” as Eric Yellin, an associate professor of history and American studies at the University of Richmond, told The Washington Post last year, about a different set of photos. “Having that network be interracial is really important. But the visuals that have come to define the Trump administration say something else, too. They signal which people in a multi-racial, half-female country Trump values the opinions of: mostly white men who are mirror images of the President himself.

Story 2 – Uh-Oh: Sanders Campaign Texting ‘Gulag For You’ To People Who Aren’t Voting For Bernie

Project Veritas (James O’Keefe) continues to release candid camera clips of Bernie state campaign staffers (latest video highlights four of them)

No Comment from the campaign

No corporate media is covering it

They’re all still employed.

Adam Ford Recommendation: Go read the Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

The Babylon Bee, a fundamentalist religious publication put out by the far right, produces a podcast as well.
Michael Malice calls the italicized portion "an aside," and as we all know that's where the corporate media interjects its opinion.
Technically, the italicized portion is "an appositive" (Joe Blow, a Professor of Mockery , explained that satire…). We could call the corp media doing this: a snide/sneering aside or a leading appositive (leading to a concl)/skewed appositive/appositive propaganda.

I dare anyone to look up the Nazino affair and tell me the Soviets weren't capable of all of the evils they were accused of committing in the gulags.


Nancy hears your podcast. She was not impressed.

I hold John McAfee as the Libertarian Ideal.
Hire the local gang for "protection", pick up underage girls so that you can pay them to perform deplorable sex acts upon, and manufacture your own brand of untested drugs for mass consumption.
