In a video from late September making the rounds now on Twitter, the Biden Administration’s Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine, a man who identifies as a woman, called on doctors to serve as “ambassadors” in an attempt to normalize transgenderism.
Levine remarked, “I encourage all of you to think of yourself as ambassadors to your communities, ambassadors for science,” as well as for “compassion” and for “care.”
“These conversations don’t need to be limited or restricted to a medical setting,” Levine added. “Offer yourselves as informational resources not just for youth but for school teachers, principals, school boards, professional organizations, recreation centers, county commissioners, and others who would benefit from this information and your perspective. Please proactively seek out opportunities to speak about what you know.”
Levine went on to say, “We need to have these conversations that question the assumptions that are underlying today’s attacks on trans people. Pushing back the veil of ignorance demands this extra effort.”
The Biden administration official then finally made an inarguably true statement: “Medicine and science are being politically perverted around this country.” They certainly are — by leftist radicals like Levine.
“Those who attack our community are driven by an agenda of politics, it has nothing to do with medicine, it has nothing to do with science,” he added.
This is known as Progressive projection: the Left always accuses its opponents of that which it is guilty of.

During a Pride Month Town Hall which was live-streamed by the Democratic National Committee in late June 2022, Levine accused “opponents of LGBTQ equality” of “target[ing] trans and queer youth to score political points.” “Every major medical association agrees: gender-affirming care is life-saving, medically necessary, age-appropriate and a critical tool for health care providers,” added Levine. “As a pediatrician, when it comes to making sure kids are healthy and happy, I know how important care that affirmed someone’s true identity can be.” In response to Levine’s remarks, Florida Department of Health spokesman Jeremy T. Redfern told Fox News Digital: “The Surgeon General is opposed to experimental and irreversible medical treatments on children and teenagers that suffer from gender dysphoria. The idea that this makes anyone at the Department of Health an ‘opponent of LGBTQ equality’ is nothing more than a poorly attempted character assassination.”
