The Patriot Post® · Disinformation-Spreader to Lead Disinformation Board
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. At least that’s what it says on the white facade of The Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s 1984.
We mention this because the Democrats seem to be struggling mightily with the truth of late — so much so that they announced, just yesterday, that they’ve created their own Ministry of Truth: a deep state organization called the “Disinformation Governance Board.”
We know what you’re thinking: Why would we need a Disinformation Governance Board, and why would anyone trust the Democrats to set it up and run it? After all, this is the same Democrat Party that told us we could keep our doctor and our health plan.
Indeed, this is the party that brought us such disinformation dandies as the dirty dossier from Trump-hating British intelligence official Christopher Steele, and the letter signed by more than 50 deep state “intelligence officials” that falsely claimed Hunter Biden’s laptop was in fact a Russian disinformation operation.
These election-interfering physicians had better first heal thyselves.
And yet there was Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas yesterday, testifying meekly before the House Appropriations Subcommittee before pouncing on a carefully prepared softball from Democrat committee member Lauren Underwood.
“One of my main concerns about disinformation,” Underwood began, “is that foreign adversaries attempt to destabilize our elections by targeting people of color with disinformation campaigns. … Can you share what steps you’ve taken and what future plans you have to address Spanish-language mis- and disinformation?”
To which Mayorkas replied, “Our undersecretary for policy, Rob Silvers is co-chair with our principal deputy general counsel, Jennifer Gaskell, in leading a just recently constituted misinformation disinformation governance board. So we’re bringing — the goal is to bring the resources of the department together to address this threat.”
So the Biden administration — which owes its very existence to disinformation — has created a taxpayer-funded entity to combat disinformation. The irony here hasn’t been lost on newly free Twitterers, one of whom, former Navy intel officer Jack Posobiec, noted, “Ministry of Truth is now the #1 trend in the United States after news the Biden Admin launched a Homeland Security ‘Disinformation Board.”
But wait. There’s more. As the Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy reports:
The Biden administration’s new czar to combat disinformation has a history of sharing misleading claims about British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s discredited dossier and downplaying controversy embroiling President Joe Biden’s son.
Nina Jankowicz, who was a disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center and adviser to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry … confirmed a report Wednesday that she has been named executive director of the Department of Homeland Security’s new “Disinformation Governance Board.”
So Joe Biden’s new Dezinformatsiya Czar is not only a “disinformation fellow” but also a Steele dossier truther and a Hunter laptop denier?
Ya can’t make this stuff up.
All this comes, of course, just two days after billionaire entrepreneur and free speech absolutist Elon Musk bought Twitter — a bold stroke that has the Left in outright panic of losing both its social media monopoly and its absolute control of what Musk dubbed “the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”
It’s been a great week for free speech and a bad week for Democrats. No wonder they’re nervous.
