Everything that disagrees with the Democrat party is becoming misinformation or disinformation, and this started well before President Joe Biden was elected President. During the Donald Trump Presidency, people were banned and censored on social media. Trump still has a lawsuit open against Twitter. Though the lawsuit won’t stay in Florida, it’s still ongoing.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wants to go around the first amendment to ensure misinformation and disinformation on social media platforms. Mayorkas feels like misinformation and disinformation falls under the purview of DHS. Still, it seems that he’s missing the point.
The U.S. Department of State just released the Country Reports on Terrorism which shows that terror organizations are expanding outside of the middle east, but nothing new. With the confirmation of that information, Mayorkas wants to go after social media posts.
After Brad Stone, senior executive editor with Bloomberg News, asked Mayorkas if misinformation and disinformation were under the scope of the DHS, Mayorkas responded terrifyingly.
“I think that’s very much within, uh, our domain, uh misinformation, uh, pointedly, disinformation has severe and significant ramifications for homeland security.”
It doesn’t. The Wuhan lab leak theory has been proven correct, the COVID-19 vaccine efficacy and danger have been proven right, and when given time, research, and release of information, many “theories” are found to be correct.
Mayorkas continued, “The integrity of our election system, the security of our election system is a prime example of that. And so, um, our office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans under Rob Silver’s leadership, CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) under Jen Easterly’s leadership, uh, John Cohen leading” (skipping the names) “these are individuals very much involved in their respective workforces, very much involved in their respective workforces, very much involved in addressing misinformation, disinformation, and the threats that they pose to the homeland.”
Mayorkas then said that false narratives threaten our nation, which overrules free speech. That’s not why this country was created. Transparency in government is the real issue that we have. It’s become a pandemic in the United States where instead of investigating claims of election fraud and releasing the results, we have to believe what politicians say.
Mayorkas said, “The propagation of false narratives is something to be condemned. Uh, we need our leaders, uh, to step up and fight against it, yeah, because the words of leaders, you know, they matter quite a bit.”
Yeah, they do. So why is President Joe Biden saying “Negro” and “this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated”?
The continuation of censoring speech in any way is driving people to push back on the government for that reason alone. Conspiracies will come up and spread, but censorship is causing the uprise of protest. If the government-backed off and let people say whatever they wanted, this would all even out. The best way for a bad idea or theory to go away is to allow intelligent and civil conversation discourse.
The tipping point of Mayorkas’ employment for the federal government should end at this statement:
“Uh, the First Amendment, uh, concerns are essential. It’s a founding principle of our country. I think they’re very dedicated to doing so. And I think the how-to and how we can work together with them is not so easy, and I think we’re all working, uh, through it.”
If you’re trying to find ways to work around the first amendment right to free speech, then it’s a matter of time before the administration brings down every other constitutional amendment they want to. That’s precisely why they want to expand the Supreme Court and use their power to shut down speech and the economy. They want all of the power, and anyone on the government’s tit, if you will, is destined to be controlled by them.
