There for a moment, the Biden administration was adamant about promoting the new Disinformation Governance Board. While many critics compared it to the Ministry of Truth in the novel 1984, the White House was persistent that its goal was to monitor the information being sent from abroad. It should be noted that the same Democrats who supported the board were the same people claiming that former President Donald Trump was working with the Russian government to steal the election from the American people. That narrative first started thanks to Hillary Clinton’s campaign lawyer, Michael Sussmann. But now, after the board was put on pause, Republican Senator Josh Hawley accused them of targeting American citizens as well.
Appearing on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight, Hawley, in the video below, said, “As it turns out, Tucker, the people that the Biden administration thinks are the real threat to America. It’s not the drug cartels. It’s not foreign threats. It’s you. It’s the American people. If you have questions about COVID, if you have questions about COVID masks, if you have questions about the COVID vaccine, this administration wanted you to be monitored. This Disinformation Board was set up to go after you. That’s what the documents say.”
Expanding on the reason the board was created, the Republican added that many Americans were starting to question the 2020 election and how Amtrak Joe won, and the news surrounding the January 6 riot. For well over a year, the Democrats have compared the day to 9/11. They also declared that the protesters were domestic terrorists trying to overthrow the government.
Hawley stated, “By the way, election integrity, same story. The documents specifically mentioned that they needed to be a Disinformation Board because some people were having questions about election integrity. Some people had questions about January 6. Well, we couldn’t have that, and this Board was set up to monitor that. That was what was in their sights. And I’ll tell you, Tucker, it just gives the lie to what they were saying in public.”
Carlson was sure to mention that the board was working to make a partnership with Twitter before they were put on hold.
Users filled the comment section, writing, “Everything about the left is perception, manipulation, and lies. Everything. Everything is ‘Wag the Dog.’ Everything is a structured deception.”
Another person wrote, “Biden is everything bad the Democrats and Liz Cheney RINOS said of Trump and even worse. Biden is a downright dictator, and I think if we keep going in this direction, our Republic will fall.”
And one warned, “This is not the United States. The Democrat Party has adopted Stalinist measures to control the citizens. From censorship, intimidation, criminal prosecution, spying, and numerous other tactics, they are determined to silence any opposition to their leftist policies.”
