Biden announces new ‘disinformation governance board’

Over the last couple of years, the Stalinist left has made cracking down on so-called “misinformation” one of its top priorities.

In a major escalation in that effort, the Biden regime has announced a new “Disinformation Governance Board,” Breitbart reported.

Biden makes Orwellian move

The board’s existence was revealed Wednesday in a congressional hearing by Alejandro Mayorkas, who heads the Department of Homeland Security. According to Mayorkas, the board will help reduce “misinformation” before the 2022 midterms.

It may not surprise many that the woman tasked with leading the “disinformation” board, Wilson Center fellow Nina Jankowicz, is a partisan leftist who supports censorship.

Jankowicz dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop scandal as a “Trump campaign product” and echoed the baseless claims of “intelligence experts” that it was Russian disinformation. She has fretted that Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter would put “free speech absolutists” in charge of social media.

News of Biden’s “disinformation” board prompted comparisons to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, which depicts a totalitarian society ruled by “Big Brother.”

Since he was installed in the White House with the help of tech censorship, Biden has gone to war with political dissent while stoking hatred against his domestic opponents, especially Americans who have refused the COVID vaccine — notoriously declaring that patience was “wearing thin” with them.

The Stalinist left

The fragility and increasing unpopularity of Biden and his regime have made censorship an indispensable political asset for the Democratic party, with Biden officials said to be “concerned” that Twitter’s new ownership may allow their political opponents, particularly Donald Trump, the chance to speak.

Democrats have increasingly described “disinformation” — which they never define — as a grave threat to “democracy” and national security, often using rhetoric that likens the problem to a corrosive disease.

Biden’s old boss, Barack Obama, called for a crackdown on “disinformation” in a recent speech that compared political speech he doesn’t like to “sewage.”

A “disinformation board” is perhaps the most alarming signal yet that the Biden regime plans to ramp up its crackdown on free speech — even as it continues to claim the moral authority of “democracy.”

Demonstrating absolutely zero self-awareness, the Biden administration signed a document Thursday with 50 other countries affirming free speech as a “human right” and condemning “authoritarian” governments that censor internet access.
