Twitter’s bout with free speech online continues. The platform censored U.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA) for stating in a tweet that transgender admiral Dr. Rachel Levine was not “the first female anything” but a “dude who lived the first 50 years of his life as a man.” Taylor-Greene was met with a storm of leftist fury on the platform.
Dr. Rachel Levine, a “transgender,” was sworn in Tuesday as the nation’s “first female four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps’ history,” per CBS News. Taylor-Greene tweeted her personal frustration at celebrating “transgender” Levine as a history-maker. Taylor-Greene tweet appeared to be a response to CBS News reporting that Levine is the nation’s “first female four-star admiral” in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps’ history. Twitter issued Taylor-Greene’s tweet about Levine a “hateful conduct” violation warning at the time of this article’s publication. Twitter placed the warning label prominently above Taylor-Greene’s tweet and also put sharing restrictions on the tweet.
Taylor-Greene said in her tweet above a picture of Levine: “A dude who lived the first 50 years of his life as a man isn’t the first female anything. China is laughing at us.” Leftists, both on Twitter and in the media, quickly began reporting Taylor-Greene for “Targeted Harassment” and slamming her for alleged “hate speech.”
“This tweet has been reported as targeted harassment,” was only oneMany replies have been received by users who had reported Taylor Greene. “@TwitterSafety @Twitter @TwitterSupport does she get to keep posting hate, or does she get consequences?” complainedAnother Twitter user. “Just gathered the kids around and used @mtgreenee ‘s tweet as an example to what ‘hate speech’ is and how humans don’t treat other humans,” wroteAnother angry user. There’s nothing like slamming a female congressional representative for saying that the reported “first female four-star admiral” is actually a biological man.
Media outlets published their anger too. Yahoo! HuffPost and News both ran identical stories. “Critics slammed the Donald Trump-adoring, conspiracy theory-endorsing Greene for transphobia with her post,” huffed HuffPost. The story alleged that Greene has a history of “transphobic comments.”
Levine is the “first openly transgender four-star officer in any of the nation’s eight uniformed services,” reported CBS News. Levine has been promoted to the top ranking United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps officer.
Twitter censored Catholic World Report in February for accurately identifying Levine as “a biological man identifying as a transgender woman.” Feminist Meghan Murphy was also permanently banned from the platform in 2018 for tweeting that “transgender” women are not men.
