Sunday afternoon CNN Newsroom anchor Jim Acosta and Trustworthy Sources host Brian Stelter decried Congressman Jim Banks as Twitter blocked his congressional Twitter account for proclaiming trans woman Biden appointee Rachel Levine was a “man.” Stelter stated that this was “a game” and “political stunt.”
A lot of Jim Acosta’s life during Trump years were political stunts.
Rachel Levine, formerly Richard, was sworn as Deputy Secretary of HHS to the U.S. Public Health Service Commission Corps last Tuesday. Banks tweeted, “The title of the first female four-star officer gets taken by a man.”
Acosta made fun of Banks, who complained that his congressional account had been locked to his personal account. It’s almost like they want to be canceled, some of these members of Congress.” Stelter laughed, and enthusiastically agreed.
STELTER You have it nailed! This is the best thing I have ever seen! name of the game. It’s about creating this opportunity for a political stunt. Banks said in a statement, if they silence me, they will silence you. We can’t allow Big Tech to prevent us from telling the truth. When he speaks, he presents himself as an honest truthteller. The truth is that he is transphobicIt is. This is what he says about Rachel Levine in this comment. He claims he has been banned. He was only temporarily detained.
His name is “locked “…”The tweet will remain in effect until the author deletes it.
This is another opportunity for liberal journalists who boast they are “fact-based” to proclaim against all biological evidence that men can decide to become women, and everyone must honor their lifestyle choice. Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy expressly prohibits referring to a transgender person by a gender other than the one they choose.
Acosta wanted to appear as a loving nurturer. Banks was lectured by Acosta.You can be a human being. People are people” Are Acosta and Depeche Mode going to be singing the Depeche Mode tune? What is Acosta saying? “People are human, therefore why should it matter, you and me should get along so horribly?”
PS. We can all assume that Twitter (and CNN), will not hold transgender people to any standards of decency. The decency rules are not applicable to the “marginalized”. Charlotte Clymer may mock Andy Ngo’s beating as a political stunt. There are no lectures.
