Conservative users on Twitter blasted a recently surfaced video of the Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Rachel Levine calling on Big Tech companies to censor “misinformation” about “gender-affirming care” for kids on the internet.
Levine, a man who thinks he is a woman, made the statements in May, but the video just surfaced on Twitter right after Christmas.
Many of the massive social media platforms users expressed their frustration that a government official was asking tech companies to censor content disputing that gender-affirming care for youth is a thing of “positive value.”
Liberals have argued that misinformation and disinformation in the public square must be silenced, which is debatable. The dispute arises when leftist government officials call for the silencing of American citizens’ speech, even though it is a direct violation of the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
During a May 27 zoom address to the Federation of State Medical Boards in New Orleans, 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 doctor said, “So I’d like to just talk briefly about another area of substantial misinformation that is directly impacting health equity in our nation, and that is the health equity of sexual and gender minorities. There is substantial misinformation about gender-affirming care for transgender and gender diverse individuals.”
Levine then claimed that the country is “facing an onslaught of anti-LGBTQI+ actions at the state levels across the United States,” adding, “They are dangerous to the public health.”
Levine continued, dishonestly and shamefully saying, “The positive value of gender-affirming care for youth and adults is not in scientific or medical dispute.” Even the New York Times admits there is an ongoing disagreement on trans-affirming care, inside the medical community.
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.”
Critics of online censorship and encouraging children to undergo gender transitions ripped the video on Twitter.
Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio, provided his followers a biology refresher to push back against Levine. He tweeted, “Admiral asserts ‘need’ for Ministry of Truth. To deny this: xy ≠ xx. It takes male & female to reproduce. Every egg is x. Sperm is y or x. At conception (save exceedingly rare cases), the baby human is xy (male) or xx (female). Nothing changes reality. Embrace the science.”

The American Conservative senior editor Rod Dreher suggested Levine was a fascist, tweeting, “When fascism comes to America, it will be under the guises of Health and Safety.”
