Popular satirical news website the Babylon Bee has been suspended from Twitter for referring to Biden’s transgender Assistant Health Secretary, Dr Rachel Levine, as a man.
After Levine, a biological male, was named “Woman of the year” by USA Today, the Babylon Bee ran a piece dubbing the 64-year-old their “first annual Man of the Year.”
The piece stated: “Since announcing this award, we’ve been told that Levine actually identifies as a woman. We have still chosen to give the award as his self-identification has no bearing on the truth. Congratulations, Rachel Levine!”
The post was widely shared across Twitter before the platform locked the account, accusing the Bee of violating the site’s rules against “hateful conduct.” …
I just received this notice that we’ve been locked out of our account for “hateful conduct.” pic.twitter.com/udMriKcDr6

“We’re not deleting anything,” [Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillion] said. “Truth is not hate speech. If the cost of telling the truth is the loss of our Twitter account, then so be it.”
This is just another clear reason why we should abandon leftist run social media platforms …
What’s more, they get rich off our participation on their platforms and then donate large sums of money to causes that undermine everything we cherish and value.
Reality versus PC censorship, I’ve lost count of how many rounds we’re up to.
Heh, if you’re still allowed to post on Twitter, then you’re not over the target. If Donald Trump and the Babylon Bee are banned from Twitter, why aren’t you?
