President Joe Biden’s Disinformation Governance Board is the dystopian future that the left has been asking for. Will it remain?
The Disinformation Governance Board’s head is Nina Jankowicz, who is an extremely partisan individual. Not only did Jankowicz say that the Hunter Biden laptop story was fabricated, but she supported the Steele Dossier. Hunter Biden’s laptop story is fact and the Steele Dossier is fiction. That’s not a good start.
When the Hunter Biden laptop story was published, the Associated Press reported that Jankowicz said there were multiple red flags with the story and said, “we should view it as a Trump campaign product.” Jankowicz was previously a “disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center and advisor to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry as part of the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship” according to the Washington Examiner.
Jankowicz also has a TikTok account that’s… interesting. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that he didn’t know about the account, but that’s highly unlikely. Jankowicz posted a video of her singing a song that should concern you.
The song went, “Information laundering is really quite ferocious. It’s when a huckster takes some lies and makes them sound precocious, by saying them in Congress or a mainstream outlet, so disinformation’s origins are slightly less atrocious.”
Information laundering? Like the Hunter Biden laptop story?
Jankowicz also wants to censor memes. Yes, memes. She tweeted, “The biggest challenge in identifying this content both for our team and for platforms is what we’ve dubbed ‘malign creativity’ — the coded language, memes, and context-based content which allow harmful posts to avoid detection.”
It’s really just artistic creativity and generally hilarious.
Then, there’s her plans for the police. She said, “In the UK, they’re looking at making the content that they call ‘awful, but lawful’ illegal. I think we need to think about that as well, because again, going back to the comparative situation, if I were walking down the street and there were a bunch of men yelling these slurs at me, the police would intervene, I could get a restraining order against these people who are coming back again and again to say these things to me. Online, that doesn’t exist yet. So, I’m hopeful for that architecture to come into play.”
Two words, Jankowicz: block button.
Out in public, intervention is necessary because you’re beholden to someone else’s actions. Online, you’re beholden to someone’s words. There’s a vast difference there that can’t be ignored.
Jankowicz also praised the Steele Dossier and mentioned that “they” were tracking attacks on Vice President Kamala Harris and other politicians.
Jankowicz is a radical leftist that wants to censor the speech of opponents. The left seems to believe this is a tactic to win elections and push their narratives forward. It’s not going to work and it’s unconstitutional.
