Transgender activist and Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. “Rachel” Levine reportedly tried to galvanize doctors to demand increased censorship from Big Tech.
Levine actively encouraged state medical board doctors to pressure Big Tech platforms to censor criticism of transgender ideology, Daily Signal Managing Editor Tyler O’Neil wrote in an op-ed Thursday.
Levine’s transgenderism has been linked to Big Tech censorship before. Satire site The Babylon Bee named Levine its “Man of the Year” and was suspended on Twitter until recently restored by new Twitter owner Elon Musk.
Levine falsely claimed that any such critiques were “medical misinformation” because there’s supposedly no “scientific or medical dispute” about the positives of experimental drugs and “transgender” surgeries.
There is actually a great deal of scientific and medical debate, and not just from conservatives. Even the leftist New York Times recently published an in-depth piece on the potential severe long-term effects of puberty blockers on “trans” kids. Activists like Levine claim that “transgender” people are likely to commit suicide unless they can get drugs or body-altering surgeries to “change” their sex.
The Florida Board of Medicine and the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also approved a ban of puberty blockers last month, The Daily Signal reported.
Levine alleged in a May speech to the Federation of State Medical Boards: “There is substantial misinformation about gender-affirming care for transgender and gender-diverse individuals,” O’Neil quoted him.
Levine claimed state measures against “transgender” so-called “treatments” are “dangerous to the public health” because they’re “treatments that should be considered the standard of care.” That would seem to include body-altering “transgender” surgeries on children, which are a hotly debated topic.
The Daily Signal said of Levine: “His support for such digital censorship arguably amounts to a modern inquisition into suppressing heresy against the transgender worldview, dressed up in scientific language to appear professional.”
This is advancement of leftist dogma through the means of biased censorship.
Conservatives are under attack. Contact your representatives and demand that Big Tech be held to account to mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on so-called hate speech and an equal footing for conservatives.
