The Wall Street Journal recently opined that Jankowicz’s Disinformation Governance Board could soon brand any criticism of the Biden-Harris administration as a threat to national security. I agree with their assessment, and I don’t buy the DHS secretary’s recent claims that the Board will only be used against disinformation from foreign powers. We already have intelligence services to do that and they’re very good. We don’t need Ms. Bedknobs and Broomsticks trying to counter Iranian grey propaganda with finger-cymbals and an interpretive dance. This is not the realm for amateurs.
It’s clear the Disinformation Governance Board will be used domestically, against us – against anyone who disagrees with the regime or values their constitutional rights. Jankowicz herself has already said as much, calling online mockery of Kamala Harris a threat to national security.
Besides, what better way to boost Joe’s flagging poll numbers or empower his war on our guns than by criminalizing public push-back, right? Why else would the administration house the Ministry of Truth at DHS – a law enforcement agency, which we know is comprised of thousands of government agents with millions of rounds of our ammunition.
Don’t want another “assault weapon” ban? Keep it to yourself. Not a fan of Biden’s war on gun dealers? Don’t tell anyone, or you’ll risk a quick rendition and a term in a DHS free-speaker gulag.
To be clear, while the new free-speech policewoman will imperil our First Amendment rights, her secret powers and law-enforcement authority are tailor made for infringing upon the Second Amendment, too. That much is obvious. That is by far the worst part of this debacle.
Our strength as gun owners has always been our ability to organize quickly – to get the word out about a pending atrocity headed our way, such as another David Chipman. If we lose our ability to communicate, if it becomes a crime to disagree, we will no longer be a real community. We’ll become nothing more than a bunch of folks with guns who are all waiting for that knock on the door in the middle of the night, from someone who wants to either ask questions about a social media post or take our guns, while the lapdog media and other government watchdogs all turn a blind eye.
