On Video, Rachel Levine Pressures State Medical Boards to Ensure Big Tech Censors “Health Misinformation” Regarding Gender

On Monday, Grabien released a disturbing video of Admiral Rachel Levine, Assistant Secretary for Health for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and a chief U.S. public-health official. The video, taken back in May, shows Levine speaking via Skype at an event organized by the Federation of State Medical Boards. It didn't garner the attention it deserved at the time, and given what we're seeing from issues such as the “Twitter Files” on censorship as well as the rise of big tech, the video provides more crucial details about the government's pressures on technology companies and attempts to influence states' medical boards and universities.

On the video, Levine informs the medical professionals on the state medical boards that they have an important responsibility to fulfill. “We must continue to expand and work to address health misinformation.” This does not just mean COVID, Levine said, but also another aspect of “substantial misinformation” that was “directly impacting health equity”: the “health equity of sexual and gender minorities.” Levine argued that the country faced “substantial misinformation” about “gender-affirming care” and discriminatory actions against LGBTI+ that could be “dangerous to the public health.” The “positive value” of “gender-affirming care for youth and adults” is “not in dispute,” Levine said.

“We all need to work together to get our voices out in the front line. We need to get our voices in the public eye. And we can—we know how effective our medical community can be talking to communities, whether it’s at town halls, schools, conversations with others, and we need to use our clinicians’ voice to collectively advocate for tech companies to create a healthier, cleaner information environment. During a moment when public trust in our leaders and our information is very challenged, the healthcare worker community, the medical community does I believe maintain a high degree of trust, and we have to utilize that and we have to utilize it effectively.”

Levine isn't just recommending accommodating those who are looking to transition and giving them the power to do so. Levine is attacking “misinformation” and claiming they should lean on tech companies to enforce their will. Levine is also talking about reaching out to schools to promote this concept.

What constitutes misinformation? And who gets to decide? A top public official in the government declares what constitutes a “healthier, cleaner information environment” and instructs the boards to communicate that information collectively to tech companies.

Is pointing out the fact that Levine was born a biological male “misinformation”? It's not; it’s the truth and the science. When the government is telling you what you have to believe and directing tech companies to provide a “healthier, cleaner” information narrative, this is censorship. It's also unconstitutional.

Levine argues that the “positive value” of “gender-affirming care for youth and adults” (translation: potentially changing or cutting away body parts) isn't at issue. This is a claim Levine has previously made, and as has been pointed out, it's not the case that everyone is in agreement. Also, “science” doesn't mean questioning whether it's good for a teenager to have body parts removed or use puberty blockers, according to Levine and the Biden team. “Science” means complying with what the government tells you. Levine is trying to ensure that this isn't just part of the federal government's policy but extends to the states, too.

The “Twitter Files” have shown how problematic it becomes when the government gets involved with social media in an effort to control speech. We have seen how, under the old Twitter platform, the satire website Babylon Bee was suspended from Twitter simply because it called Levine a man. It was that shambolic suspension that spurred Elon Musk's desire to buy Twitter and ultimately led to the modifications regarding freedom of speech that we're witnessing on the platform. Was that suspension part of the efforts to ensure a “healthier” environment that the Biden team has been dictating?
