I can only imagine what the rest of the world thinks when they see a fat, cross-dressing "Admiral" in such a role. They probably say, "This is the ideal person for this important position in public health". Zany.

Well, at least you only insulted her for being a "fat, cross-dressing "Admiral" instead of a "split-tail". You're making progress albeit in baby steps.

I can imagine that some people at least might consider that appearance is not the most vital qualification for an important position in public health, though I guess there are some who do not.

Hey, c'mon guys, Warp merely said that he can only imagine it. That's more than I could do -- hell, I still can't, and I bet none of you can either.

It takes a special breed of mind to imagine like that.

More and more I am convinced that conservatives are simply not good people.

The ones here certainly like to dehumanize people ('Split Tails') they don't like.

It doesn't take any imagination. Let's examine the claim:

1) Fat? Absolutely true.
2) Cross-dressing? No doubt whatsoever.
3) An "Admiral"? Yep.

Somehow you suspect that a large portion of the public doesn't look at this scenario and roll their eyes. That is the part that is hard to imagine.

Sure "policy" is the primary reason. If you watch this video, and watch Levine dance around this questioning, it should terrify you:

There is no way that Levine is not highly biased on this subject, and not in a way that fits with what I believe about the trans issue when it comes to children. And I am far, far from alone on this matter.

Quote:
The position is a statutory office (42 U.S.C. § 202) and the holder of the office serves as the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services's primary advisor on matters involving the nation's public health.
It would be like having a Neo-Nazi oversee US policy towards Israel. There is simply no possibility that there isn't bias, no matter how good their employment history might be.

The fact that this person is a walking freak show is just the icing on the cake. Quite frankly, all the questioning session by Paul is missing is a horror movie soundtrack. Then people would think it was trailer for a movie about a fat shemale that has a respected job by day, but eats children by night.

Maybe, maybe not. Many people seem to have the superpower of self-delusion.

They're perfectly happy to make fun of and ridicule fat people for their life choices and laziness because their own obesity is due to a "slow metabolism" and other factors completely beyond their control.

I noticed the Warp has yet to tell us exactly what it is about Levine he doesn't like besides her being a "fat shemale cross-dressing 'Admiral' ". He must know what disagreements he has with her opinions on transgender children as he said"

I think a moderately intelligent horse would be superior in intelligence and manners, and more capable of independent thought, than many Republican senators and congressthings.

Well to be fair, if one presumes from the quality of his comments that he does not approve of a transsexual person holding high office, and finds it amusing that one of the great fools of the public world has compared her to a horse, one probably need not ask further what disagreements he has with her opinions on anything regarding transgender issues. One might wish for better articulation, just as something to argue about, but really, it would be overly generous, I think, to believe there is something more nuanced to say.

Wouldn’t it be more like having a Jew in charge of us policy towards Israel?

Not that we would let that happen, unless he married the President’s daughter.

Is objecting to an overweight person with weird hair holding a public office some kind of outrage that its infringing on Trump's brand?

Yeah, she does a poor job of answering the questions. Then again, they are pretty nonsensical and loaded questions to begin with, so probably hard to answer properly, and essentially completely irrelevant to her job.

By the statistics I can find, while some people do go through gender transition surgery and later have regrets, the numbers are around the vicinity of the number of people that get struck by lightning each year. Should we be asking the prospective Secretary of Health questions about lightning strikes? can we really expect someone who hasn't been personally struck by lightning to not have a bias when it comes to protecting others?

Someone please send in a team to extract Tucker Carlson from Trump's ass:
Quote:
The host of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight released the trailer for his Jan. 6 documentary Patriot Purge on Wednesday night, and it's as terrifying as you'd expect.

The first in a three-part series produced by Tucker Carlson Originals, the ominous trailer baselessly suggests the riot was a "false flag" plot "heralding the state persecution of conservatives," writes Insider.

The Fox icon has previously suggested Jan. 6 was a possible FBI set-up, through critics have "dismissed this idea as a conspiracy theory," writes Newsweek. On Wednesday, Carlson said he believes the documentary "answers a lot of the remaining questions from that day." The trailer says the project will tell "the true story behind the War on Terror 2.0 and the plot against the people," writes Vice News.

Of course, the Twitter-shared preview didn't come without some criticism. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), a member of the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot, slammed Fox News for giving Carlson "a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on Jan. 6."

The disgusting trailer:

Referring to Levine as a "split tail" is an insult to women, and hardly appropriate.

Only if they're split tails.
Seriously? "Overweight person with weird hair" is how we define Levine? After watching the scary video, where it dances around the questions? And then, knowing the reality of the situation with this man-cow pretending to be a woman?

I just can't see how any real woman considers this person to be a "woman". It is the ultimate insult to women, combined with the ultimate in liberal delusion.

By that standard, bar Trump from office: bad health habits, bad sexual predator habits, bad lying mobster habits, and wicked failure to man up to factual reality.

Sigh. Nothing like a naive realist to remind you that science is not something that comes easy, particularly to those unable or unwilling to do the homework.

And so that disqualifies them from the office they hold?

As a woman, and one born into a female body, I can say Levine is more of a real woman than some men, born into male bodies, are 'real' men. In my estimation, a 'real' man doesn't need to denigrate others in order to make himself feel like a 'real' man. He doesn't need to call women derogatory names or insult them in order to boost his own puny, fragile ego. He doesn't need to attack others' sexual self-identify in order to assure himself of his own. Men who do that are pathetic losers. Trump is one such loser but he's certainly not the only one.

1. Tucker Carlson did not even know there was such a thing as the Public Health Service Commissioned Officer Corps before somebody directed his attention to this announcement and he decided he would pretend to be upset about it on his nightly rage-opera.

2. His "special" about January 6 being a "false flag" staged by government liberals is probably going to provoke more January 6 -type incidents of varying severity, all of which he is also going to insist are false flags staged by government liberals.
