“President-elect” Joe Biden has appointed another transgender to his administration.
The latest elevation of either a fraud or a loon to a top government position is one “Rachel” Levine, a “transgender woman” who vaguely resembles Ben Franklin and runs health matters in Pennsylvania. He’ll be the assistant secretary of health and human services, the agency’s No. 2 job.
Yet the pick is hardly a bolt from the blue. Two months ago, Biden picked a transgender to run the military side of his transition.
If the Senate OKs the confused pediatrician’s nomination, the Washington Post tells us, he’ll be the first “openly transgender federal official” so confirmed.
She’s Our Guy!
Why any mother would let Levine near her kids is a mystery. But that question aside, Biden thinks the The Man in High Heels is just right for the job.
Said the leader of the party of science, which denies the biological reality of sex:
Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond. She is a historic and deeply qualified choice to help lead our administration’s health efforts.
Frighteningly, Pennsylvania’s GOP-controlled Senate confirmed Levine three times to be state’s secretary of health and physician general, the Post observed. They don’t call the GOP the Stupid Party for nothing.
“At the time, she was one of only a handful of transgender officials serving in elected or appointed offices nationwide,” the Post observed. “If confirmed as assistant secretary of health, Levine would be the highest ranking transgender official in the US government.”
In fact, he will still be “one of only a handful of transgender officials serving in elected or appointed offices nationwide.”
The Post also frets that normal Americans joke about Levine:
One in particular made headlines. … A photo of a man sitting in a carnival dunk tank wearing a floral print dress and a long blond wig. The man said he was going for a Marilyn Monroe look, but organizers of the carnival fundraiser in Bloomsburg, Pa., said he resembled Levine.
“Dr. Levine? Thank you. You were a hit and raised a lot of money for the local fire companies. Wonder why so many were trying to dunk you?” the Bloomsburg Fair Association wrote in July on Facebook, adding a smiling emoji, before deleting the post.
Senator Bob Casey (D-Pa.) was madder than a dorm matron after a school-night panty raid.
“Hate and bigotry have no place in our society,” he tweeted. “The members of the Pennsylvania transgender community are our neighbors and friends. Treat them that way.”
Well, they’re also a little wacky, so there’s that.
Reported the Post:
Last May, a radio personality repeatedly misgendered Levine, calling the health secretary “sir” at least three times while questioning her on the state’s coronavirus response. A commissioner at a township near Pittsburgh said he was “tired of listening to a guy dressed up like a woman.” After Pennsylvania ordered its residents to wear masks at all times in public, a Facebook page run by one town shared a meme referring to her as “a guy who wears a bra.”
No joking about Cinderfella!
DOD Transition Girl
Appointing a science-denier to a top government health job — for which accepting modern science would seem to be required — is bad enough. But in November, Biden picked a transgender to oversee the transition team’s defense end, as The New American reported.
Aside from that gift, Biden will undoubtedly lift President Trump’s ban on transgenders openly serving in the armed forces, a move that could deal a serious blow to morale, good order, and discipline.
If any soldiers have a problem with this, the new commander in chief will undoubtedly say those individuals can depart the military — to which some will have devoted much of their lives — if they don’t like crossdressers.
