Biden’s Ministry Of Truth Is SHUT DOWN & Nina Jankowicz FIRED After Massive Backlash!

TheQuartering [5/18/2022]

According to TheNewYorkPost:

They couldn’t handle the truth.

The Biden administration has “paused” its controversial plans to create a Disinformation Board, causing its would-be leader to resign. 

In a statement Wednesday, Nina Jankowicz, the “disinformation expert” tapped to head the panel, said that “[w]ith the Board’s work paused and its future uncertain, and [sic] I have decided to leave DHS [the Department of Homeland Security] to return to my work in the public sphere.” Jankowicz’s departure and the decision to scrap the board was first reported by the Washington Post. 

The board had been the subject of weeks of backlash from Republicans, libertarians and even some liberals, who likened the scheme to the Ministry of Truth from George Orwell’s classic novel “1984.”

The Washington Post reported that DHS had decided to stop the board’s work on Monday and Jankowicz had drafted a resignation letter as of Tuesday morning. The outlet added that she had been given the option to stay on in a call with DHS officials Tuesday evening. 

The Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Post.

The Biden administration had quietly announced the creation of the board last month, saying it was meant to fight the spread of “disinformation”  spread by agents of Russia, China and Iran that “can affect border security, Americans’ safety during disasters, and public trust in our democratic institutions.” Amid the backlash, DHS insisted that the board “does not have any operational authority or capability,” and was meant to preserve rather than limit free speech

However, Jankowicz’s idea of standing up for the First Amendment included letting “verified” Twitter users “edit” other users’ tweets if the blue-checked chosen think they’re misleading.
