Federalist Senior Editor John Daniel Davidson was locked out of his Twitter account on Saturday for stating the fact that Biden administration official Rachel Levine is a man.
The moment came following a Friday tweet from Davidson on the growing Big Tech censorship of “everyone who dissents from their ideology.” In it, he correctly referred to Levine, who falsely claims to be a woman, as a male.
“They’re not even trying to hide it anymore,” wrote Davidson. “If you say that Rachel Levine is a man, they will come after you. Doesn’t matter that Levine is in fact a man. Truth is no defense.”
Less than 24 hours after Davidson posted this, Big Tech censors at Twitter removed the tweet from being viewed by the public and locked Davidson out of his account, claiming it “violated the Twitter Rules” and that he would “be able to unlock [his] account” within 12 hours.
“Note: you may need to complete some additional tasks to resume using Twitter,” the message said.
The social media platform sent an additional message to Davidson on Sunday, telling the Federalist senior editor that, to have his account restored, he would have to “acknowledge that [his] tweet violated the Twitter Rules” and delete it. Davidson says that he has no intention of deleting the post.
Davidson’s Twitter lockout comes days after a major crackdown on Federalist content by Twitter, with the social media company recently diverting users who click on Federalist articles “to a landing page warning that links ‘may be unsafe.'”
The actions were reversed following an inquiry by The Federalist, with a Twitter spokesperson claiming “the URLs referenced were mistakenly marked under our unsafe links policy“
