Twitter Suspends GOP Congressman for Saying Rachel Levine Is a Man
The official Twitter account of Congressman Jim Banks (R-Ind.) was suspended for tweeting, “The title of first female four-star officer gets taken by a man” about Rachel Levine, Biden’s assistant secretary for Health & Human Services (HHS), being sworn in as a four-star admiral of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps earlier this week.
When Biden promoted Levine, the administration called him the “first-ever female four-star admiral,” effectively robbing a real woman from ever holding that title.
“My tweet was a statement of fact. Big Tech doesn’t have to agree with me, but they shouldn’t cancel me,” Banks said in a statement posted to Instagram. “If they silence me, they will silence you. We can’t allow Big Tech to prevent us from telling the truth.”
Twitter similarly suspended me earlier this week for pointing out the exact biological fact of Congressman Banks.
Banks, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), also called on Republicans to “restore honesty to our public forums and hold Big Tech accountable” if they win back control of Congress next year.
For the time being, Banks is posting to his personal Twitter account.
“Twitter has suspended my official account for posting a statement of FACT. I won’t back down.”
Twitter similarly flagged a tweet by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for violating their hateful conduct policy, which “determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”
“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,” Greene tweeted.
Indeed they are.

Notes from the Editor
While we at 0censor uphold every American right to seek their path to happiness, state facts, or be forced to accept something that goes against the very laws of nature as scientific, that is something we can’t support.
If you want to think you are a giraffe, put on a suit that makes you look like one; if that makes you happy, have at it. Now, if you go into the zoo and try to force this on real giraffes and kick the living daylights out of you, that is not them acting wrong. You are not a giraffe; they have no obligation to accept you as such.
It is the same with wearing a wig, purse, or a dress if you are a guy. Because you wear women’s clothing, or even if you think you are a lady, you are not; this is a biological reality. While you have a right to claim that you are a girl, your DNA says something very different, that is science. No mammal can change sex due to environmental pressure or whim; if there is one, share the evidence with us all. This is a scientific reality, the fact that you feel otherwise, that is not a scientific fact, that is your feeling, nothing more.
