Twitter has launched a spree of censorship in relation to posts about transgender individuals like Rachel Levine and Ivy League swimmer Lia Thomas. Tucker Carlson has become their latest victim.
First, the Babylon Bee, a satirical news website was ousted from the platform after naming Rachel Levine “man of the year” mocking other outlets that had legitimately named her “woman of the year”. The Bee was banned for calling Levine a man, which she biologically is. Levine can identify however she wishes, however referring to her as a biological male is an irrefutable biological fact.
This stunned America as a result. Now, those who hold themselves up as the warriors against “misinformation” are censoring true information. Sure, perhaps the headline was disrespectful, but true none less.
Tucker Carlson had his tweet removed after having shared the Bee’s article. “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules,” the platform said.
Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA was also locked out of his account for “hateful conduct” despite having shared similar sentiments.
“Richard Levine spent 54 years of his life as a man. He had a wife and a family. He ‘transitioned’ to being a woman in 2011, Joe Biden appointed Levine to be a 4-Star Admiral and now USA Today has named ‘Rachel’ Levine as a ‘Woman of the Year’ Where are the feminists?” Kirk said.
Kirk simply shared factual information, and at the end posed a question to those that he thought might, or should have a quarrel. Where is the “hateful conduct”?
