The social media censorship revolution continues unabated. The latest victims of Twitter’s absurdly biased policies is the Christian organization Focus on the Family, which has been suspended from the site for the unforgivable transgression of stating the obvious about Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine: That’s “she’s” a man, baby.
“As I’ve noted before, Big Tech titans are the new emperors of the twenty-first century, wielding an inordinate amount of power by silencing individuals and organizations that don’t comport or cave to their political or social point of view,” wrote Focus on the Family president Jim Daly. “This past week, Twitter locked The Daily Citizen for an alleged rules violation, specifically that we had posted ‘hateful’ content. It’s simply not true. We did no such thing.
“At issue was a Tweet pointing to a story about Dr. Rachel Levine, President Biden’s controversial nominee for Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of Health and Human Services,” Daly continued.
So what was this terribly offensive tweet?
Well, here it is in full: “Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”
How is that offensive? How is that “hate speech”? As far as we can see, it’s as close to the plain truth of the matter as one can possibly get. Isn’t that exactly what a transgender woman is? We know that the proper PC thing to say is that such people were always women inside, but that’s of course baloney. And if it’s hate speech to say so, then we have truly gone through the Looking Glass.
“Over the course of the last week, President Biden has been stressing the need for unity – but his actions since taking office are all about demanding uniformity,” Daly wrote. “There appears to be no room for convictional disagreement. You will comply – or be silenced.”
Daly pointed out that, just in the last few months, many others have either been censored by social media or punished in some way for holding views that go against leftist doctrine: Curt Schilling, Martina Navratilova, and J.K. Rowling, just to name a few. One might notice that it’s not just conservatives or Trump supporters getting the brunt end of the stick, here. It’s ANYONE who won’t swallow and parrot the nonsense the left is passing off as coherent ideology these days.
And as far as we can see, this tendency is only going to get worse.
