Minnesota Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar declined to answer a question on Friday during DisInfo 2022 Conference whether the senator’s recent bill banning “health misinformation” on social media will include a ban on saying there are two sexes—male and female.
Senator Amy Klobuchar sat on a panel to talk about “Taming the Wild, Wild Web” with the former Democratic governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, and a moderator from The New York Times.
UChicago student, Evita Duffy, co-founder and managing editor of Thinker Chicago asked the democratic senator whether saying there are only two sexes can be considered “health misinformation” and should be banned on social media platforms.
“You introduced the bill that you talked about today that would punish social media companies like Facebook and Twitter for having health misinformation on their platforms. And I’m going to ask you if I were to say that there are only two sexes, male and female. Would that be considered misinformation that you think should be, banned speech on social media platforms?” Duffy questioned.
Klobuchar just laughed at the question and refused to answer saying, “Okay, I’m not going to get into what misinformation.”
“First of all, I think the bill you’re talking about is different than the one we have mostly been talking about. So I want to make that clear. We’ve been talking about the competition bill. But there is another bill that I have on vaccine misinformation. It is that specific in a public health crisis,” Klobuchar argued.
After she singlehandedly destroyed the leftist senator, Duffy revealed on her social media account that one of the event organizers came up and tried to take the mic away from her.
Fun fact: After the moderator called on me, one of the event organizers came up and tried to take the mic away from me, saying they were “all out of time.” https://t.co/2md0z3FK7w

Klobuchar introduced a bill last year that aims to hold tech companies accountable for allowing “misinformation” that conflicts with leftist propaganda about vaccines and other health issues to spread online.
DisInfo2022 is a three-day conference that talks about disinformation and the erosion of democracy held at the University of Chicago.
Last Thursday, another college student from UChicago destroyed Stelter and CNN with a list of fake news stories the channel pushed on the American public for the past five years. The list included the Russia-Collusion hoax, the Jussie Smollett hoax, the Nick Sandmann smears, and the Hunter Biden laptop denial.
“They pushed the Russian collusion hoax. They pushed the Jussie Smollett hoax. They smeared Justice Cavanaugh as a rapist, and they also smeared Nick Sandmann as a white supremacist. And yes, they dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop affair as pure Russian disinformation,” Phillips narrated. Watch the full clip here.
