The Biden Administration Attempts a Resurrection of its Disinformation Board

After a disastrous month of press coverage, the Biden administration abandoned its original plans to regulate speech online. Now, it’s quietly bringing them back in an equally Orwellian manner.

In mid-June, the administration issued a memo establishing a new task force to address online harassment and abuse. It represents a partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and dozens of other federal departments.

Buried in its mission statement is a mandate to conduct mass surveillance and control of online speech.

One concerning item shows Biden’s Orwellian task force differentiates between “public and political figures” and ordinary people, offering them extra care and protection against what it defines as misinformation, calling for programs to address “disinformation campaigns targeting women and LGBTQI+ individuals who are public and political figures, government and civic leaders, activists, and journalists.”

The force will also “enhance and expand data collection” and develop surveillance with guidance from “stakeholder consultations”. Presumably, its stakeholders will include online megaliths such as Facebook and Twitter.

At its core, the administration is pursuing its goal to define online speech as fundamentally different from any other kind of speech in order to control it more strictly. As more of our lives transition online, this should be concerning to anyone paying attention.

This reminds me of a meme I’ve seen recently. It’s a picture of George Orwell with a shocked expression while reading a book titled “2022”…

It’s funny how the Left screams and throws tantrums about ‘FREE SPEECH’ and ‘alternate opinions’ until they perceive that they’ve got the upper hand. Then they shut down and even destroy all perceived opposition. We’ve no right to heretical opinions that differ from the Narrative. Heretical is the key word: the New Left embraces a RELIGION analogous to the religion of communism that seized Russia with false doctrine and false promises. And it resulted in the deaths of millions of people.

There will be no peace or progress till this vile man is out of the White House. His obsession with delivering the Republic to the New World Order will be the end of America as we know it. However, the whole world is in turmoil. The sand pits are emptying into Europe and Britain, Rumor is Germany will be a Muslim country in just two more generations. Note, these are all unarmed countries. No chance of a rebellion or turning it around.. A huge invasion force is headed north to America and even Canada will be next . Biden was put into office to add confusion, anger and mistrust while Soros, and the men behind the curtain play both liberals and conservatives for fools. .

Just one more great reason to stay as far away from social media as one can. Karma will catch up to the Marists in the FJB regime soon enough.

Let’s just hope that Karma arrives in time to save our country from these conniving, power-mad, America- and liberty-hating Demmunists.

Can it get any worse? Joe Biden…what more can be said about this disaster. Democrats, are you still pleased that Biden – though hook or by crook – became President of our country?

The conniving Demmunists NEVER give up on their plans to STEAL our liberties–they just take it underground and call it something else. This kind of dishonesty and power-mad maneuvering is why NOBODY should EVER vote for a conniving Demmunist for ANY office, because the only thing they can be trusted to do with political power is ABUSE it trying to get more of it!
