President Joe Biden's bad-idea factory just belched out a doozy: The
Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) rolled off the assembly line to the sound of shrieks and Klaxons -- and deservedly so.
The last thing America needs is a taxpayer-funded thought-police bureau
that monitors public utterances, condemns them as "disinformation" and
then flags them for dutiful erasure by the Democrat-Left’s social-media henchpersons in Silicon Valley.
This wretched concept echoes the mind control of the USSR. Indeed,
these bumbling neo-totalitarians gave this monstrosity a name whose
acronym is DGB, which rhymes with KGB. One feels sorry for Team Biden – almost.
"The fact that a federal department with approximately 240,000
employees would set up a ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ to enforce
the government’s judgement of what information is allowed in the public square should frighten anyone who values liberty and understands how
crucial free speech is in maintaining that liberty," Sen. Ron Johnson,
R-Wis., told the Daily Caller.
Unspoken in this debate is the fact that every American has the
constitutional right to spew disinformation. Allow me to exercise that natural-born right.
