Our nation was founded on several liberating principles that were considered absolutely necessary after we endured the tyranny of the British Monarchy, not the least of which is the freedom of speech.
Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?
Our founding fathers understand that freedom cannot truly exist without the ability to speak ill of those who would do ill upon you, and they took the ultimate risk in bringing a free and fair nation into existence.
But now, some 200-some years later, the liberal left is looking to curb speech again, this time under the guise of “disinformation” – which is their new boogeyman on the right side of the aisle.
The Biden administration was even preparing to go so far as to create a sort of “ministry of truth” – the Disinformation Governance Board – but something has now stopped them dead in their tracks.
The Department of Homeland Security is reportedly pausing the Disinformation Governance Board three weeks after its creation was challenged by Republicans.
The Washington Post’s Taylor Lorenz reports that the DHS decided to shut down the board on Monday and that its leader Nina Jankowicz had drafted a resignation letter in response to their decision.
The DHS has offered Jankowicz the chance to stay in the department, defending her in a statement to the Washington Post.
Lorenz later reported on Wednesday that Jankowicz had officially resigned.
“Resigned.” is a word in the language of politics. Translated, it means they fired her butt.
White House press secretary Karine “I hate those Jews “Jean-Pierre attempted to distance the West Wing from the disastrous initiative, insisting “we did not have involvement in this at all” when asked if top officials had ordered the halt. Sure, that’s the ticket, and I have six-pack abs.
The decision will likely elicit cheers from the GOP and others, who long felt as though allowing the government to decide what the truth should be was an idea fit only for a king
In her good-bye statement, Jankowicz whined that “mischaracterizations of the Board became a distraction from the Department’s vital work, and indeed, along with recent events globally and nationally, embodies why it is necessary.
“I maintain my commitment to building awareness of disinformation’s threats and trust the Department will do the same,” she concluded.
Oh, that makes me feel so sad for her. Hey Nina Jankowiz, don’t let the door hit you in the butt on your way out.
