Congressman Gets Corked for Calling a Four-Star Admiral a ‘Man’ – Opinion

Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks was recently in quite a pickle. He had an alleged Twitter posting that administrators had taken down.

The reason for Jim’s jam wasn’t wholly unrelated to the metaphor above: He’d referred to a federal official as a “man.”

As relayed by CBS News, Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine “[made] history” this week “as the nation’s first openly transgender four-star admiral.”

Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine made United States history Tuesday as the first openly transgender four-star officer in any of the nation’s eight uniformed services, the Department of Health and Human Services announced. The former pediatrician’s appointment also made her the first female four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) Commissioned Corps’ history.

On social media, Levine — who’s never served in the armed forces — called to honor:

For gender identity, the United States government has taken a more comprehensive approach.

For an October 19th press releaseYou can find this link:

Admiral Levine is now the USPHSCommissioned Corps’ highest ranking official and the first female admiral with four stars.

Rep. Jim is on Twitter went considerably contrarianYou can find this link:

“The title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man.”

According to Daily Signal reporter Mary Margaret Olohan, the Bluebird canned the congressman’s claim concerning the “M” word.

After all — Twitter’s current Terms of Service prohibits “hateful conduct.”

Have a look at these guidelineYou can find this link:

Violent acts of violence must not be used against or threatened with other persons on the grounds of race, color, ethnicity and national origin.

Jim’s initial tweet — called “transphobic” by the Daily Beast — appears to have been removed.

At the time of publication however, another post from him was still available.

“Calling someone that was born and lived as a man for 54 years the first ‘female’ four-star officer is an insult to every little girl who dreams of breaking glass ceilings one day,” he wroteIt was the same day.

As surmised by the Beast, Jim “played the cancel-culture card;” he issued a statement via captured image:

“My tweet was a statement of fact. Big Tech doesn’t have to agree with me, but they shouldn’t be able to cancel me. You will be silenced if you try to silence me. We can’t allow Big Tech to prevent us from telling the truth. When Republicans take back the House next year, we must restore honesty to our public forums and hold Big Tech accountable.”

The look and sound for American government is changing because of the left-wing drift.

As covered by RedState’s Bonchie, the State Department just celebrated International Pronouns Day.

On, here’s what Uncle Sam had to say:

In the United States, it’s becoming increasingly common for people to “share their pronouns.” …

These pronouns include the gender-neutral they/them/theirs — words that traditionally refer to a plural number but that today are used by some individuals who identify as gender nonbinary or who prefer not to share gender information. You can also use the feminine she/her/his or the masculine him/him/his pronouns. Some are pioneering the use of gender neutral pronouns like ze/zir/zirs. …

During his first few days in office, President Biden signed an executive order to prevent discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. …

The White House also debuted a website contact form with gender-neutral pronouns and the nonbinary prefix “Mx.” And the Department of State announced June 30 that U.S. passport forms will allow applicants to choose male or female gender, regardless of what their other documents indicate, and will eventually include an option for nonbinary, intersex and gender-nonconforming people.

Where language is concerned, it seems to me we’re inching toward an impasse. Communication is approaching “impossible” as people can no longer agree on the definitions of words.

Will “woman” and “man” be eventually eliminated? At the moment, it seems that they are either meaningless and just plain mean.

As for the State Department’s linguistic declaration, such is Taps for the term “Department.”

Similar to New York, Board of HealthHas declared racism a public problem.

It Centers for Disease ControlPrevention stated the exact same thing.

It’s done the same for “gun violence.”

To quote an old movie title, if centers and boards aimed at health are addressing social ills or taking an activist position toward the Second Amendment…and if a department intended to manage foreign policy and international relations is instead going to bat for zem, hirs, xem, and bunself…where our national interests and the focused function of our separate, taxpayer-funded agencies are concerned…who’s minding the store?

At least we know of one — Rachel Levine, first female four-star admiral of the United States.
