Rachel Levine Demands Censorship on Transing Kids

We already knew that the cross-dressing weirdo Richard “Rachel” Levine — the Assistant Secretary for Health extolled by liberals as America’s first “female” four-star admiral — is in favor of committing crimes against humanity by sacrificing children on the altar of LGBTism through horrific sex change procedures. We knew that the Biden Regime has relied on the suppression of information to achieve and exert power. Yet it is hard not to be shocked by the blatant evil as Levine calls on Big Tech to censor “misinformation” that would protect kids from having their genitals mutilated.

It has come to light that during a Zoom address to the Federation of State Medical Boards…

…Levine spoke about the need for the government to “address health misinformation directly” and specified that includes encouraging Big Tech to combat health misinformation “beyond COVID-19.”

The topic he had in mind is the transsexualization of children.

By now we all know that “misinformation” is any information or opinion that leftists want suppressed.

Pushing the Orwellianism that characterizes Democrats to the point of overkill, Levine declared that resistance to the exceedingly unhealthy “LGTQI+” agenda is “dangerous to the public health.”

As Joseph Goebbels observed, tell a lie big enough, keep repeating it, and sheep will believe it. Squeaks Levine:

“The positive value of gender-affirming care for youth and adults is not in scientific or medical dispute.”

“Gender-affirming” is Orwellian for “gender-denying.” In many cases, gender is “affirmed” by surgically removing healthy body parts so that woke parents of a transsexual trophy child can pretend their offspring is a member of the opposite sex.

The official called for tech censorship to quell any dispute on the subject, adding, “And we need to use our clinicians voice to collectively advocate for our tech companies to create a healthier, cleaner information environment.”

By this he means an information environment reduced to a cesspool of depraved leftist propaganda.

Levine has largely gotten his way:

Conservative journalist Ian Miles Cheong tweeted, “You’re not allowed to criticize Rachel Levine on other social media platforms. You will be banned.”

That is, social media platforms other than Twitter under Elon Musk’s ownership. Previously, the Babylon Bee was banned from Twitter for drawing attention to the incontrovertible biological fact that Levine is a man.

Levine, a transgender woman, made the statements in May, though the video gained newfound attention on Twitter just after Christmas.

The Old Twitter Personified: Yoel Roth

Twitter degenerated into a propaganda tool of the Democratic Party prior to Elon Musk’s takeover due to the quality of its employees, which appears to have been on a level with Disney. For example:

Twitter owner Elon Musk is going scorched-earth on the company’s former head of Trust & Safety, Yoel Roth. On Saturday, Musk responded to the resurfacing of this 2010 tweet from Roth linking to a Salon article asking if high school students can “meaningfully” consent to sex with their teachers.

That the question even needs to be asked tells you a lot about the mindset of the man who, until recently, headed up Twitter’s Ministry of Truth — the same company that banned the use of the word “groomer” in July.

That the word “groomer” is accurate is confirmed by the groomers who want it struck from the Newspeak Dictionary. Calling groomers “groomers” was explicitly defined by Twitter as “hateful conduct. Libs of TikTok — which became famous for exposing LGBT groomers in the public school system — was repeatedly suspended.

Musk replied with a bombshell quote from Roth’s Ph.D. thesis — which was focused on the gay hook-up platform Grindr.

Roth proposed that raunchy sites catering to deviant sexual hookups “accommodate” children. This would be accomplished by “safely connecting queer young adults” — i.e., facilitating homosexual activity between children who don’t know each other. No word from Tony Fauci on how this might help contain HIV and other viruses.

Small wonder Twitter let child sexual exploitation stand even as it censored news stories that hurt Democrats.

Musk has been wise to purge most of his workforce. Afterward, he should have the offices fumigated.

Eurocrats Demand Musk Censor Twitter

It isn’t only CNN “intelligence” analysts and Hollyweird has-beens like Alyssa Milano and Jim Carrey who have it in for Elon Musk for allowing more free speech on Twitter. Even Eurocrats are piling on:

Twitter’s decision to stop enforcing its COVID-19 misinformation policy has put another bullseye on Elon Musk’s back.

“In my view, Twitter now is jumping to the front of the queue of the regulators,” Věra Jourová, the European Commission’s vice president for values and transparency, told POLITICO.

Seriously, Vice-President of Values and Transparency is the title of a eurocrat demanding Twitter suppress what she calls “disinformation and illegal hate speech.” She must work for the Ministry of Truth — along with this guy:

On Wednesday, Internal Market Commissioner Thierry Breton held a video call with the Twitter CEO to tell him his company was not ready for the bloc’s upcoming content moderation revamp, known as the Digital Services Act.

“Content moderation” is a euphemism for censorship.

“There is still huge work ahead, as Twitter will have to implement transparent user policies, significantly reinforce content moderation and protect freedom of speech, tackle disinformation with resolve, and limit targeted advertising,” according to a Commission readout of Breton’s call with Musk.

That apparatchiks can keep a straight face while mixing demands for more censorship with pious duckspeak about transparency and freedom of speech confirms that we are living in a novel by George Orwell.

The French commissioner also said Twitter needed sufficient personal and technical capacity to comply with Europe’s upcoming rules, adding he would be monitoring its progress.

Maybe if Musk hires back Melissa Ingle he can placate the Euroweenies.

Next will come demands that Musk follow the lead of the totalitarians at Google and impose behavioral “interventions” to “prebunk” rather than debunk disfavored information.

Moonbats Turn on Musk Part III

Even as moonbats rave about Russia and stop driving Teslas because Elon Musk has been allowing more free speech on Twitter, some speech will be restricted that was previously permitted. Consequently, Antifa has joined the jihad against Musk:

Musk called for members of the public to report violations of the site’s terms of service against child sexual exploitation and far-left extremist violence.

Numerous self-identified Antifa militants including several prominent organizers have been banned for calling for violence against Chaya Raichik, who operates the popular “Libs of TikTok” account, and Daily Wire host Matt Walsh.

“Incitement to violence will result in account suspension,” said Musk in response to journalist Andy Ngo, who explained that a large number of Antifa accounts operate on the website to promote riots and provide tips to each other on how to identify targets and commit violence.

Ngo would know:

“Antifa used Twitter to direct comrades to swarm me after I ran into a hotel following a violent street beating,” wrote Ngo.

Multiple users were banned shortly after having been reported to Musk for using Twitter to incite leftist violence.

Antifa — the Democratic Party’s comical yet dangerous answer to the Sturmabteilung — responded as you might expect:

Hours after the bans, Antifa militants took to the social media platform to organize arson attacks on Tesla locations around the United States, posting the addresses of Tesla service centers and dealerships.

Producing screenshots, Ngo remarked,

“This is just a drop in the ocean of years of violent organizing on Twitter.”

Meanwhile, under the old guard, the now-reinstated Babylon Bee was banned for observing that men are not women. You can see why liberals liked Twitter the way it was before Musk.

Moonbats Turn on Musk Part II

The Experts at CNN do not have to wage their war alone. Tinseltown bubblehead Alyssa Milano joins them in combating the menace of free speech. Instead of virtue signaling by driving a Tesla, she will now virtue signal by not driving a Tesla:

Allowing free speech to even moderate conservatives like the Babylon Bee and Jordan Peterson (whose accounts have now been restored) is “hate and white supremacy.”

One problem:

Numerous Twitter users noted a flaw in Milano’s rationale to switch from a Tesla to a Volkswagen to fight “white supremacy.” Several commentators pointed out that Volkswagen was created by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party.

As noted by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum:

On May 26, 1938, Nazi dignitaries gathered near Fallersleben in northern Germany to lay the foundation stone for the Volkswagen Works. The Führer himself was present, predicting that this Volkswagen, initially known as the Kraft-durch-Freude-Wagen, or KdF-Wagen, would be “a symbol of the National Socialist people’s community.”

Volkswagens were even built by the slave labor of allegedly racially inferior Slavs.

But then, if Alyssa is still willing to use Twitter, which she regards as racist for allowing free speech, why should she object to driving a Nazimobile?

Moonbats Turn on Musk Part I

Elon Musk made much of his fortune on electric cars, which are sacred to moonbats. Yet all he had to do was promise to restore some free speech to Twitter for tolerant liberals to turn on him.

Did you think free speech is a good thing? Wrong, shrieks CNN:

Former CIA case officer and current CNN intelligence analyst Robert Baer appeared on the cable news network on Friday to discuss the opening up of Twitter by new CEO Elon Musk.

Roars Baer:

“Putin will be all over Twitter if there’s no regulations on this.”

Turns out free speech is a Russian plot.

In a Twitter poll, 72.4% approved of restoring the accounts of some who had been banned for failing to conform to leftist ideology. However,

Without evidence, Baer added, “And so when he’s talking about the popular voice, Musk, he’s really talking about Russian intelligence.” …

The CNN security and intelligence analyst bizarrely asserted, “And you know, this freedom of speech is just nonsense because you can’t go in a movie theater and yell ‘fire.’ It’s against the law.”

Beneath the skimpy Russia! Russia! Russia! fig leaf, the liberal establishment media is now saying outright that speech contradicting Democratic Party talking points should be illegal.

Personnel Is Policy Part I

Twitter getting purged of much of its workforce is essential, because that is the only way free speech can be reintroduced to the platform. Leftism = depravity imposed by force, and if personnel is policy, you can expect nothing else from guys like Melissa Ingle:

Post Millennial reports that “Melissa Ingle was one of the many contract content moderators to be fired when Elon Musk took over.”

Kooks like Ingle are why Meghan Murphy was permanently suspended for referring to Jessica Yaniv as “him.” Yaniv is a Canadian chiseler known for shaking down small businesses for cash after demanding Brazilian wax jobs for his male genitalia on the grounds that according to liberal ideology, he is a woman because he says he is.

Naturally, NBC calls Ingle “her,” reminding audiences that the liberal establishment media will gladly report that 2 + 2 = 5 if it advances moonbattery:

The reinstatement of dissident accounts like @TheBabylonBee and @jordanbpeterson is encouraging, but Musk’s announcement that Twitter policy will be “freedom of speech, but not freedom of reach” implies shadow banning of accounts like @Moonbattery1 will continue.

Flushing out kooks like Ingle is encouraging too. However, there won’t be much point if other moonbats replace them. San Francisco tech workers are known for wokeness, not support for free speech.

Ed Markey Menaces Elon Musk

The purpose of the climate crisis hoax is to provide a veneer of ostensibly benevolent intentions. Leftist Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), cosponsor of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, makes it easy to see through to what lies beneath.

After making many $millions on government-subsidized electric cars, Elon Musk has betrayed the liberal establishment by indicating that he will allow free speech on Twitter. This enrages Markey to the point of letting his mask slip:

Markey demanded answers from Musk about Twitter’s verification process after the Democratic lawmaker colluded with a Washington Post writer to create a Twitter account impersonating him. …

In a letter, Markey demanded answers from Musk for the “haphazard imposition” of changes to Twitter because “[a]llowing an imposter to impersonate a U.S. Senator on Twitter is a serious matter that you need to address promptly.” Of course, Markey failed to disclose in the letter that he gave the Washington Post writer permission to impersonate him.

This is not about impersonation; the purpose is to put a scare into Musk so that he will not allow speech that contradicts the party line. Orwell would have called such speech “thoughtcrime.” Democrats call it “misinformation” or “disinformation.” They don’t have to worry about hearing it from the Washington Post.

Markey then drew attention to his complaint by going on Twitter to accuse Musk of “putting profits over people and his debt over stopping disinformation.”

“Putting profits over people” is boilerplate Marxist rhetoric. The reference to “disinformation” is a demand for political censorship of the sort imposed under Twitter’s previous owners.

Musk did not become the world’s richest man by being easy to push around. His response:

“Perhaps it is because your real account sounds like a parody?” Musk mocked.

“And why does your [profile picture] have a mask!?” he said.

That brought the mask off. Growled Markey:

Fix your companies. Or Congress will.

Biden too has threatened Musk, croaking about inflicting a federal investigation regarding his “relationships with other countries.” This is rich, coming from a swamp creature who openly boasted of using US taxpayer money to protect his bagman Hunter’s unsavory activities in Ukraine, and who required the help of Twitter to suppress information regarding his influence peddling to our communist Chinese adversaries. The media has been egging on Biden, asking whether Musk is a threat to national security.

Democrats may as well drop the global warming window dressing. By now we all know what we are dealing with: tyranny.

Google Suppresses GOP Get Out the Vote Emails

When it comes to Big Tech placing a weighty thumb on the political scales, it isn’t easy to compete with Twitter and Facebook, which suppressed the Hunter laptop bombshell that implicated Biden in selling influence to our communist enemies just before the election. But Google manages:

According to RNC officials, emails being sent by the RNC to Republican subscribers who use Gmail accounts in the final days of each month are being sent to spam folders.

An RNC official told Fox News Digital that since Sept. 28, Gmail has “suppressed” more than 22 million RNC emails—358,000 of which were GOTV emails.

The RNC has complained to Google for months to no avail.

“Every single month, like clockwork, Google suppresses important GOTV and fundraising emails at the end of the month, with zero explanation nor commitment from Google to resolve this issue,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News. “We are less than 40 days out from Election Day, and important GOTV emails to our opted-in voters in states that have already started early voting are being systematically sent to spam.”

The arrogance and unfairness are characteristic of Google, which semicovertly suppresses anything to the right of all the way left.

Republicans have pointed to a non-partisan study by researchers at North Carolina State University which found that Gmail allows the vast majority of emails from the Democratic Party to land in the user’s inbox while more than two-thirds of messages from conservative candidates are marked as spam. …

During the 2020 election cycle, an RNC official said the study found that Gmail routed Republican emails to spam at a rate approximately 820% higher than similar Democrat fundraising appeals.

Google has potentially cost Republicans $billions in fundraising. Like the “mainstream” media and the FBI, it has become a tentacle of the Democrat Party octopus.

Remarks Robert Spencer,

As the Left grows progressively more open about its authoritarianism and hostility to opposing points of view, ultimately Big Tech, including Google, is going to destroy the freedom of speech, or that freedom is going to be afforded new protections and the tech giants’ ability to infringe upon it will be restricted. It’s one or the other, and the very fate of our free republic hangs in the balance.

A federal government controlled by Democrats is unlikely to institute freedom of speech protections against the leftist Silicon Valley cabal that it has been using as a cat’s paw to circumvent the First Amendment.

If there is any hope of reform from within Big Tech, it lies with Elon Musk, who has enraged the liberal establishment with the suggestion that Twitter could be a neutral platform that allows free speech:

United Nations Moonbat: We Own the Science

Everything leftists infiltrate, they subvert and subordinate to their twisted agenda, rendering it useless for any other purpose. The Long March Through the Institutions has moved beyond the media, entertainment, schools, and the government to attack the most basic foundations of civilization — including even science.

This is accomplished not only through government control of funding, but by directly controlling the flow of information and redefining science through a political lens.

Two of the farthest left institutions on the planet are Google and the United Nations. Watch Melissa Fleming of the UN Department of Global Communications boast that the two are working together to suppress information that does not support their strategy of seizing wealth and power through the climate crisis hoax:

“We own the science,” crows Fleming. If this is true, there is no science, only propaganda.

“All sectors of society need to be very active” in promoting ruling class opinion (i.e., moonbattery) and suppressing dissent. That they are.

Modern leftism is heavily influenced by postmodernism. Academic moonbats literally believe that objective reality, if it even exists, is irrelevant. According to their ideology, all that matters is the consensus they create by controlling what we say.

The climate crisis will become real when they have achieved the leverage to force everyone to pretend it is real. The tyranny it will be used to justify will dwarf the cost of Covid.

PayPal Weaponized

The totalitarianism currently unfolding differs from repressive regimes of the past. Rigid adherence to official ideology is imposed on a more decentralized basis. The Constitution defends us against political censorship imposed by the federal government. So our rulers utilize private sector cat’s paws like PayPal, where you can find yourself banned for any thought the liberal opinion enforcers don’t like.

Even gays opposing the sexual exploitation of children can find themselves canceled:

Gays Against Groomers is far from alone:

On the same day, the Telegraph reported that PayPal shut down the accounts of Free Speech Union, its founder Toby Young, and his opinion and news website the Daily Sceptic last week without a clear explanation. Free Speech Union is a nonpartisan organization that opposes cancel culture and has defended academics who have criticized transgenderism and people who have been fired for expressing their opinions.

Toby Young sounds off:

The infraction:

[C]omments from PayPal given to the Advocate suggest the bans are related to both Free Speech Union and Gays Against Groomers’ public opposition to “radical gender theory” and drag queen story hours in schools.

Quacks a PayPal apparatchik:

“Achieving the balance between protecting the ideals of tolerance, diversity and respect for people of all backgrounds and upholding the values of free expression and open dialogue can be difficult, but we do our best to achieve it.”

How do you argue with NPCs who tell you with a straight face that deviation from their demented ideology must be suppressed in the name of tolerance and diversity?

The arms of the octopus work in tandem:

Hours after being banned by PayPal, Gays Against Groomers shared that the group’s gmail account had also been disabled.

The implications of this developing form of liberal tyranny are truly alarming. Paul Joseph Watson explains:

Revelation 13:17 tells of a time when no one may buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast. Compliance with woke ideology is the Mark of the Beast.

Twitter Admits Sex Change Surgery Is Mutilation

Present a picture of a child murdered in a late term abortion to moonbats and they will go off like dynamite, transferring the guilt for the horror to you for showing it to them. The same holds for the grotesque wickedness of sex change operations, which Democrats advocate for children, force taxpayers to subsidize, and compel doctors to perform despite their conscientious objection. Photographic representation of “gender-affirming healthcare” got Mark Ousley suspended by our Big Tech overlords — who made a revealing admission:

We live in a bizarre world where we are told by the medical community that body-disfiguring surgeries like vaginoplasty and phalloplasty are “gender-affirming healthcare,” but when Mark Ousley of the Unwokeable Podcast tried to show photos of what these surgeries actually do on Twitter, the social media company suspended his account, calling the photos “dismembered or mutilated humans” and “gratuitous gore.”

“In the reason Twitter gave for my suspension, they admitted that phalloplasty is the mutilation of humans and Oklahoma Children’s Hospital is collaborating with schools to facilitate this procedure for little girls under the age of 16,” wrote Ousley after being reinstated on Twitter after deleting the offending tweet. The photos show the end result of harvesting arm tissue to make a non-working phallus. The result is a hideously disfigured forearm that will not only always look like a horror movie prop but will be weaker and at risk of infection and chronic pain. …

“Big Tech doesn’t want anyone to expose the ritual mutilation involved in this procedure because they know that if people see the truth of what doctors are doing, not just to adults but to kids in the name of ‘affirmation’ and ‘inclusion,’ the average person will not stand for it,” Ousley told PJ Media.

So the average person has to be kept in the dark. That’s what the information gatekeepers are for.

Evidence accrues that moonbats realize their agenda is evil, yet push it anyway.

Prebunking Thoughtcrime Through Psychological Inoculation

Sometimes moonbattery reduces science to propaganda that we can hope is too moronic to do much damage. Other times, moonbats attempt to apply science — or at least, something vaguely like science — for nefarious purposes. From ScienceDaily:

Short animations giving viewers a taste of the tactics behind misinformation can help to “inoculate” people against harmful content on social media when deployed in YouTube’s advert slot, according to a major online experiment led by the University of Cambridge.

“Misinformation” and “disinformation” are euphemisms for thoughtcrime.

Researchers behind the Inoculation Science project (https://inoculation.science/) compare it to a vaccine: by giving people a “micro-dose” of misinformation in advance, it helps prevent them falling for it in future — an idea based on what social psychologist’s call “inoculation theory.”

Sander van der Linden, who leads Cambridge’s Social Decision-Making Lab, boasts that this tactic to “prebunk misinformation” through “psychological inoculation” can be scaled to influence millions of users.

We are led to believe that the intent is not to impose a particular political viewpoint, but only to protect the public from “being manipulated.” Then we are told this:

Google — YouTube’s parent company — is already harnessing the findings. At the end of August, Jigsaw will roll out a prebunking campaign across several platforms in Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic to get ahead of emerging disinformation relating to Ukrainian refugees. The campaign is designed to build resilience to harmful anti-refugee narratives, in partnership with local NGOs, fact checkers, academics, and disinformation experts.

In other words, they want to protect people from manipulation by manipulating them into putting up less resistance to being overwhelmed by refugees.

This is far from the most nefarious purpose the moonbat cult running Google will find for the technique, should it prove effective.
