Doesn’t exist at the Twitter.
The new dark age of silencing: The quite legitimate and major conservative news outlet PJMedia was locked out of its Twitter account this week because it had the audacity to state that just because the Biden administration’s assistant secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services likes to wear make-up and dresses, that does not make him a woman, even if he claims he is and the government and Twitter insist we accept that claim, no questions asked.
PJM’s Matt Margolis took issue with that claim in an article titled: “Rachel Levine Is Not the ‘First Female Four-Star Admiral’… Because He’s a Male.” He wrote:
Even if you believe that gender is a social construct and subject to how one feels and not dependent on biology, sex chromosomes determine whether an individual is male or female. Rachel Levine is 100 percent male, right down to his DNA. He is not a female. He may have grown his hair out and changed his name to a woman’s name, but that doesn’t make him a female.
Let me second Margolis’s position. If Levine likes to cross-dress, all power to him. However, he is still a guy, and that is what I will call him, to his face if I ever had the unlikely opportunity to do so. This would likely get me arrested and blacklisted also, as that is now what our present culture demands for anyone who dissents from the leftist agenda, even if that leftist agenda is utterly false and contrary to reality.
To get Twitter’s ban lifted, PJMedia must delete its tweets promoting Margolis’ essay, which according to Twitter will be PJMedia acknowledging its tweet violated its rules.
Twitter made it clear that in order to access our account we would have to delete the truthful offending tweet, thereby admitting we had violated a Twitter rule, purportedly the one that bans “misgendering people.” You can read all about it on their page outlining what it considers to be “hateful conduct.” Misgendering is lumped in with death threats, references to mass murder, and Nazi imagery. (It’s funny that you never seem to hear leftists complaining about being banned from Twitter for calling for Trump’s death or for attacking Christians and Jews. I wonder why?)
At the moment it appears PJMedia has no intention of doing such a foolish thing. Good for it. Stand by the truth and the truth will eventually win out.
Sadly, in our modern oppressive culture the victory for truth might take awhile, and require the destruction of many innocent but honest people along the way.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space
, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
