(FOX NEWS) – Conservatives on social media slammed the Biden administration after it was announced that a ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ is being established to combat ‘disinformation’ in the 2022 midterms.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified Wednesday that a “Disinformation Governance Board” had recently been created, days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter, to combat online disinformation and will be led by Undersecretary for Policy Rob Silvers co-chair with principal deputy general counsel Jennifer Gaskill.
“The goal is to bring the resources of (DHS) together to address this threat,” Mayorkas said, adding that the department is focused on the spread of disinformation in minority communities
Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley referred to the board as a “disgrace” and wrote a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas demanding answers as to how the board will operate.
“Is there anything more dystopian than a Disinformation Governance Board run by the federal government?” Florida Republican Congressional Candidate Dr. Willie J. Montague tweeted, adding in a later tweet that the board is “Orwellian.”

They didn't need a 'Disinformation Governance Board' until @elonmusk threatened their control over the narrative.

The libs spent the last weeks planting the seeds for the back-up plan in case the Twitter deal actually happened.
Today's news of a Biden backed "Disinformation Governance Board” is dystopian.
They can't afford to let the truth be anything but what they say.
