On March 20th, Twitter locked out satirical news outlet The Babylon Bee for joking about Rachel Levine for being the “Man of the Year.”
Republican Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers was among those to call out the nonsense being perpetuated by Twitter, writing “Now they are censoring satire.”
In a post captioned with “The Babylon Bee’s Man Of The Year Is Rachel Levine,” Twitter was apparently offended by the obvious jab at how the biologically male Levine, Joe Biden’s token transgender liberal assistant Secretary of Health, had received “Woman of the Year” from USA Today earlier in March.
Rogers followed up her tweet with these observations:
“Facebook – what you say in college but still get an A from your liberal professor.
Twitter – what you say in high school but still get an A from your gender-confused professor.
Telegram – what you say as long as any intelligence agencies don’t disagree with you.
GETTR – what you say unless Kevin McCarthy tells Jason Miller to ban someone.
Truth Social – what you say at a Trump rally.
Gab – what you can say after 5 beers and you are given a microphone which is pretty much no filter and maximum freedom of speech, even though there may be real world consequences.”
Of course, far left mainstream media, including CNN, has been a continuing critic of satirical freedom of speech.
“The Arizona Audit exposed widespread irregularities and fraud in the 2020 election that exceeded the difference in votes,” Rogers, a supporter of election integrity and often the subject of censorship, said recently.
“We need to secure our elections, including by returning to paper ballots, cleaning the voter rolls, and banning ballot drop boxes.”
