GOP Rips ‘Dystopian’ DHS Plans for Disinformation Governance Board, ‘Orwellian Abuse of Power’ by Biden Admin

Republican officials ripped recent plans of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to set up a “Disinformation Governance Board” intended to combat “misinformation” online, describing it as an “Orwellian abuse of power” and calling to defund it.

During a congressional hearing Wednesday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas discussed the “just established” board, which is to be directed by Nina Jankowicz, a disinformation fellow at the Wilson Center who helped downplay information from Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020, asserting it was likely “a Russian influence op.”

In response, Republicans blasted the move, with many comparing it to the “Ministry of Truth” that disseminated propaganda in the classic dystopian fiction novel “1984,” while others pointed to Jankowicz’ past, accusing her of promoting disinformation herself.

“Biden’s Department of Homeland Security just selected this woman to lead its ‘Disinformation’ Unit,” wrote Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ). “Looks like she has to counter her own disinformation!”

“Speaking of disinformation,” wrote Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as he shared a 2020 tweet from Jankowicz appearing to downplay the Hunter Biden laptop fiasco.

“Liberals use the phony term ‘misinformation’ to smear those who hold any opinion that differs from their elitist, progressive worldview,” wrote Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).

“This is an Orwellian abuse of power by Biden DHS against Americans’ right to free speech,” he added.

“Rather than police our border, Homeland Security has decided to make policing Americans’ speech its top priority. They’re creating a Disinformation Board,” wrote Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO).

“No, really. And take a look at the views of the leftist radical running it,” he added.

“The libs spent the last weeks planting the seeds for the back-up plan in case the Twitter deal actually happened,” wrote Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO).

“Today’s news of a Biden backed ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is dystopian,” she added. “They can’t afford to let the truth be anything but what they say.”
