Detransitioned Navy SEAL accuses CNN of using him as trans propaganda: ‘Do not believe a word of it’

Retired Navy SEAL Chris Beck, who previously claimed to be transgender from birth, has now de-transitioned and is accusing CNN of using him as trans propaganda, warning Americans to not “believe a word of it” from the media, asserting that transgender ideology is cultish.

Beck was part of SEAL Team Six and promoted transgenderism during a 2013 interview with CNN host Anderson Cooper, coming out as Kristin Beck. He made the full media circuit promoting it. GQ even did a writeup on him called, “Kristin Beck: A Navy SEAL in Transition.”

“Back when she was a member of SEAL Team 6, Kristin Beck liked to grow her beard real long. But as disguises go, that was nothing compared with the life she lived as a man. What’s it take, and how does it feel, for a paragon of masculinity to travel so far to find her true self?” the media outlet opened its article.

“Everything you see on CNN with my face, do not even believe a word of it,” Beck told journalist Robby Starbuck in a no-holds-barred two-hour sit-down interview. “I take full responsibility. I went on CNN and everything else, and that’s why I’m here right now, I’m trying to correct that.”

“What I see as conversion right now is the fact that you had a psychologist, you had CNN, you had everybody else,” Beck commented. “You have the entire media. Everyone is converting all these kids into transgender.”

The 56-year-old veteran who served 20 years on special operations teams announced he had de-transitioned on Thursday. He claimed that he made mistakes, and naively allowed himself to be used by leftists to further a narrative.

“I think that, yeah, I was used … I was very naive, I was in a really bad way, and I got taken advantage of. I got propagandized. I got used badly by a lot of people who had knowledge way beyond me. They knew what they were doing. I didn’t,” he told Starbuck.

“But I take responsibility for that and that’s why I’m here now,” Beck continued, explaining that he wanted to prevent others from being used in the same way. He also wants to stop impressionable kids from buying into the narrative and undergoing irreversible actions.

“I don’t want this to continue, and I don’t want these kids to get hurt,” he said.

Beck said after just one meeting at Veterans Affairs (VA) that lasted for an hour he was told he was transgender and was offered hormones.

“I had so much going wrong in my system when I started taking those,” he noted. “Some of that was paid for by the VA, and I’m sorry to the American people that I did that.”

Beck came off those hormones seven years ago.

“They used me so well. I just wanna say I’m sorry. I didn’t know what I was doing, and the women out there and all these kids, I’m sorry,” an emotional Beck later said during the interview. “If they could forgive me not knowing anything — and the experts that knew definitely used that.”

“I know God will forgive me,” he stated. “You don’t understand how bad this is. It’s the destruction of family, it’s killing these kids … I’m gonna live with this my whole life. I destroyed my life ten years ago.”

Beck called transgenderism “feelings-based” and charged that it is more about sexuality than it is gender.

“Don’t tell me this is not about sex,” he remarked.

“I just want to speak up because there are a lot of people out there who are confused about who they are,” he told CBN News. “I just want people to be the way they are born, the way that God intended.”
