The founding American principle of the right to free speech will evaporate if liberals get their way.
The Biden administration announced that a “Disinformation Governance Board” is being established to combat “disinformation” in the 2022 midterms.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified that a “Disinformation Governance Board” had recently been created, days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter.
Mayorkas confirms the purpose of the new organization is “to combat online disinformation” and will be led by Undersecretary for Policy Rob Silvers co-chair with principal deputy general counsel Jennifer Gaskill.
Politico reported that Nina Jankowicz will head The Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board as executive director.
Multiple outlets have exposed Jankowicz’s liberal bias and argued she’s a “woke so-called expert who’s against free speech.”
Jankowicz openly admitted to NPR that she “shudders to think about” Musk’s Twitter takeover and more free speech on social media platforms. Musk promises to make the Twitter algorithm open source to increase trust.
Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley referred to the board as a “disgrace” and wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding answers as to how the board will operate.
“Is there anything more dystopian than a Disinformation Governance Board run by the federal government?” Florida Republican Congressional Candidate Dr. Willie J. Montague tweeted, adding in a later tweet that the board is “Orwellian.”
“They didn’t need a ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ until @elonmusk threatened their control over the narrative,” Texas Republican Congressman Troy Nehls tweeted.
“The libs spent the last weeks planting the seeds for the back-up plan in case the Twitter deal actually happened,” Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted. “Today’s news of a Biden backed ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is dystopian. They can’t afford to let the truth be anything but what they say.”
“Biden’s ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is a real-world Ministry of Truth,” Daily Wire reporter Megan Basham tweeted. “A conservative movement that doesn’t fight this with everything it has isn’t worthy of the name. Or the name American.”
For those who believe this tweet is a key to all my views, it is simply a direct quote from both candidates during the final presidential debate. If you look at my timeline, you will see I was livetweeting that evening. https://t.co/nI7ZgBtTLC https://t.co/4DjBl9bzt0
