JUNO BEACH (FLV) – Babylon Bee CEO Seth Michael Dillon calls a recent “hit piece” by The Palm Beach Post about his support for the Twitter account “Libs of TikTok” a “cover for groomers.”

“Parents should be disturbed by what’s happening in the schools,” Dillon said. “I think that’s the real story. That’s the big story and he doesn’t even give it a nod. He completely misses it.”

The Palm Beach Post wrote a story on Dillon announcing he hired Chaya Raichik to continue running the Twitter account “Libs of TikTok.” Raichik was anonymously running the account until a Washington Post story exposed her as the brains behind it. Babylon Bee is a satire site that writes about politics, religion, and everyday life. 

The “Libs of TikTok” account shares already-made videos from people, many times teachers, disclosing conversations they have with students about sex and sexual orientation that parents may not know took place. The account also shares classroom material students learn regarding gender identity.

The Palm Beach Post story called Raichik an “agitator” and focuses much of the story on teachers who support LGBTQ students as being “frequent victims” to online abuse because “Libs of TikTok” reposts their videos. The story also talks about teachers facing the “wrath” after their “Libs of TikTok” shared their already-posted videos.

“Absent from your ‘reporting’ is any concern whatsoever for the wellbeing of countless children who are being exposed at early ages to inappropriate subjects and influences, often without parental knowledge or approval. Your avoidance of the real issue is shameful,” Dillon said on Twitter

Parents across the country have found the videos disturbing. It’s led to an uprising from parents who are more closely watching their child’s curriculum and attending school board meetings. 

“She’s simply shining a light on something that the parents wouldn’t have otherwise known about,” Dillon said. “And that’s why I’m involved and that’s why millions of parents around the country are appreciative of what ‘Libs of TikTok’ is doing. And he completely misses that.”

Florida Republicans recently passed the Parental Rights in Education law which prevents children from Pre-K through 3rd grade from being taught about gender and sexual identity. Leftwing activists have dubbed it the “Don’t Say Gay” law while Republicans called it the “Anti-Grooming” law. 

Florida Republicans have used the term grooming to describe people who talk to children about sex without the parents knowing. 

“These are real videos posted by teachers who are bragging about the kinds of things that they’re talking to their students about, and bragging about what’s what is textbook definition grooming behavior, where they are providing a safe place for the kids to trust them instead of their parents,” Dillon said.

“He (the reporter) deliberately misses it because he likes what these teachers are doing,” Dillon said. “So he’s providing cover for groomers.”

Dillon also said the reporter neglected to mention the doxxing and harassment Raichik received since the Washington Post disclosed her name behind the account.

Dillon said they are working out the details on what the partnership with “Libs of Tik Tok” will look like.

“She’s now doing this for a living. And so she doesn’t have to worry about reporters, like this guy, Chris, coming after her doxxing her, trying to get her canceled, trying to get her fired from her job,” Dillon said.
