Focus on the Family’s “Daily Citizen” Account Banned on Twitter

The twitter account of Daily Citizen has been banned. Daily Citizen is the news site of the Christian organisation Focus on the Family.

Daily Citizen tweeted on January 19th about the President’s appointment of a transgender woman to Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of HHS.

The tweet read: “Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”

Twitter wrote to Daily:

“Hi The Daily Citizen, your account, @FocusCitizen has been locked for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against hateful conduct. You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Daily argued that they were defining what “transgender woman” meant, and pointed out many other people and organisations had done the same. In a statement they wrote:

“Numerous outlets reported on Levine’ appointment – including President Biden’s White House – noting Dr. Levin’s transgender identification,” the letter reads. “Many of the articles and tweets explained that Dr. Levin was born male, believed he is really a woman, had surgery and opposite-sex hormones, and now identifies as a woman.”

“Our tweet does not promote violence against, threaten, or harass Dr. Levine,” it continued. “Yet, we are deeply puzzled about how it was misconstrued. We simply explained to our readers the appointment and defined what transgender women are – those born male who believe they are a woman, regardless of whether they have had opposite-sex hormones or surgeries.”

Chinese President Xi Jinping Address World Economic Summit, Calls for “Global Cooperation”

Chinese President Xi Jinping has addressed the World Economic Summit in Davos. In his first speech since President Biden took office he called on a return to multilateralism. He warned that a “slip into arrogant isolation will always fail.”
“For the first time in history, the economies of all regions have been hit hard at the same time, with global industrial and supply chains clogged and trade and investment down in the doldrums. Despite the trillions of dollars in relief packages worldwide, global recovery is rather shaky and the outlook remains uncertain,” Xi said.
The Chinese president called on governments “to abandon ideological prejudice and jointly follow a path of peaceful coexistence, mutual benefit and win-win cooperation.”
Xi continued his theme of inclusion throughout the address, adding: “To build small circles or start a new Cold War … will only push the world into division and even confrontation.”
