WND Offended That Transgender Official Named To Public Service Corps
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Bob Unruh complained in an Oct. 19 WorldNetDaily "news" article:

The Biden administration this week announced the appointment of Rachel Levine, a man who has presented himself as a woman for much of his career, as an admiral of the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service.

That agency is one of a number of uniformed services the nation has, but is unlike the military in that it deals only with health issues, and has no bases, camps, forts or anything like that.


Levine's position in the Biden administration is that of assistant secretary for health.

Tom Fitton, of government watchdog Judicial Watch, dismissed the Biden administration's brouhaha over the appointment with, "Biden gang playing quota politics with public health service."

Levine, at his appointment, said," I'm doing this because of my dedication to service … [and] with the utmost respect and honor for the uniform that I will be wearing."

Note that Unruh deliberately misgenders Levine and obsesses over the fact she's a transgender woman. He also makes sure to add an irrelevant, denigrating remark from a right-wing activist who offers no proof that Levine's appointment equates to "playing quota politics."

Unruh continued to lecture about Levine:

The scientific facts are that transgenders can alter their physical appearance, manners and presentation, but being either male or female is embedded in the human body down to the DNA level.

Formerly Richard Levine, the new officer made the "transition" to Rachel after having been married with a family.

None of Unruh's hate-based lecturing has any reason to be in this article, which is not about Levine being transgender -- however much Unruh would like it to be. That's fundamentally dishonest journalism, and it's hard to see why anyone else would want to publish it, even though that's what WND wants in order to remain viable, something that is not succeeding.
