Following the circulation of cringey videos and disproven tweets posted by Nina Jankowicz, the head of DHS’ new “Disinformation Governance Board,” a video of public remarks Jankowicz delivered in 2021 gives Americans another idea of what sort of speech Biden’s so-called Minister of Truth may look to stifle when it comes to expression that’s inconvenient for Democrats.
In October, Jankowicz spoke at the City Club of Cleveland’s annual meeting, delivering an address titled “Disinformation and Democracy: Civic Discourse in the Digital Age.” How nice.
During her remarks, Jankowicz outlined the supposed threat of disinformation — and she would know after she said that the Russian dossier was authentic and brushing off Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell as Russian disinformation — before attacking parents and others who oppose Critical Race Theory.
“Critical Race Theory has become one of those hot-button issues that the Republicans and other, you know, ‘disinformers’ who are engaged in disinformation for profit, frankly — there are plenty of, you know, media outlets that are making money off of this too — have seized on,” Biden’s Minister of Truth claimed. “I live in Virginia, in Loudoun County, that’s one of the areas where people have really honed in on this topic,” Jankowicz added to supposedly prove her credibility on the topic.
The head of the federal government’s Disinformation Governance Board has publicly stated that “Republicans are disinformers.”
No caveats, qualifiers, or walking it back.
And you didn’t hear this from the corporate media. You saw it here first, or on @mazemoore Twitter.
