Joe Biden’s DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas appeared on State of the Nation this weekend and claimed that the new ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ will protect free speech.
You have to marvel at the ability of people in this administration to lie with a straight face.
The DGB is being described by most people as a ministry of truth because it sounds like it was ripped from the pages of 1984.
The Hill reports:
DHS secretary says disinformation board won’t infringe on free speech: We’re not opinion police
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Sunday defended his department’s new disinformation board, arguing it does not infringe on free speech and was implemented to combat dangerous misinformation being spread by the cartels.
Mayorkas told “Fox New Sunday” the disinformation board is solely meant to “address disinformation that presents a threat to the homeland.”
“Our work does not infringe on free speech, infringe on civil rights or civil liberties,” Mayorkas said. “An individual has the free speech right to spew antisemitic rhetoric. What they don’t have the right to do is take hostages in a synagogue.”…
The disinformation board was announced last week but drew some criticism from conservatives who said it could be used to target conservatives. They also criticized Nina Jankowicz, who will lead the board, for past comments.

In another interview, this guy wouldn’t even say that the Steele Dossier was disinformation. Which it was.
The Steele Dossier was produced by domestic partisans & foreign intel assets trying to interfere in our elections. If Mayorkas says it’s not his place to say whether that was disinformation, he needs to tell us who will be targeted by his #MinistryOfTruth. pic.twitter.com/zPKk69EPlu

This administration does not deserve the trust that it’s asking of Americans.
