The Ministry of Truth
« on: April 29, 2022, 10:54:27 AM »

I think it's been referenced in other threads, but, I think, deserves its own. This "Disinformation Governing Board" is just scary. No free country should ever have such a thing. Especially since their mission statement pretty clearly targets certain philosophies. Such as anyone who speaks out against "irregular immigration", to, of course, the "white domestic terrorists" hiding behind every lamp post.

And the Czar or whatever she's called is a nutcase:

https://twitter.com/i/status/1519856430500696071

There is all kinds of documentation showing her saying things like "The Hunter Biden laptop is a fake story created by the Trump campaign" to saying that "free speech absolutionists are a danger". She claims that Substack is an extremist site.

If this board has any actual power, they are a danger to freedom.

What's coming out of the admin is eerily similar to what was said on Babylon 5 almost 20 years ago

Heh, I was thinking the exact same thing. Right down to the moron, greedy Vice President who ended up President.

Also,  Straczinski is a big lefty and certainly wrote that storyline as an analogy to evil conservatives, but in real life, it kinda backfired on him.

I guess things change when you get to have the power instead of orange man.

Anyway, long story short, I think we as a country might be too... um, free-spirited?! (to put it diplomatically) to comply with social distancing recommendations unless they’re forced upon us. So force away! Lock us down. People are not taking this seriously.

I don't correspond with my senators often enough.  But I just sent both a quick note about this abomination.

Babylon Bee as usual uncomfortably close to the truth

Quote
“The new board has barely begun its work and already many have jumped to the entirely unwarranted conclusion that it will be used to quash free speech," said DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. "This could not be further from the truth, as everyone in this country has the right to say how much they support and agree with the Biden administration. It is only that speech that we disagree with which will be labeled as disinformation.  This follows the well-established practice of media fact-checkers and social media content moderators.”

Yet again the current shitshow of an administration proves they consider 1984 an operations manual, not a warning.
