USA: The Department of Homeland Security’s new ‘disinformation’ unit will be headed by a woman who says free speech makes her ‘shudder’ and who falsely labeled the Hunter Biden laptop story disinformation.
Just two days after it was revealed that Elon Musk had reached an agreement to buy Twitter, DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas announced the creation of a “disinformation governance board.”
The new board will focus primarily on “misinformation related to homeland security, focused specifically on irregular migration and Russia.”
The board will be headed by Nina Jankowicz, a former advisor to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry who oversaw related issued at the National Democratic Institute lobby group.
“Cat’s out of the bag,” Jankowicz tweeted. “Here’s what I’ve been up to the past two months, and why I’ve been a bit quiet on here.”

Jankowicz’s view of free speech is particularly odious. Free speech apparently makes her physically shudder.
“I shudder to think about if free speech absolutists were taking over more platforms, what that would look like for the marginalized communities, which are already shouldering disproportionate amounts of this abuse,” she tweeted in response to Musk’s Twitter takeover.
NEWS: DHS is officially launching its own Ministry of Truth, or the so-called “Disinformation Governance Board.”

Jankowicz previously called Musk an “online abuser,” while arguing for more censorship when she asserted, “The ‘free speech vs censorship’ framing is a false dichotomy.”
But crucially, the woman handed the role of deciding what constitutes “disinformation,” previously labeled a completely truthful story “disinformation” because it was seen to be harmful to Joe Biden’s presidential chances.
Jankowicz promoted the actual disinformation that the New York Post Hunter Biden laptop story was a “Russian influence op.”
Back on the “laptop from hell,” apparently- Biden notes 50 former natsec officials and 5 former CIA heads that believe the laptop is a Russian influence op.
Trump says “Russia, Russia, Russia.”

She also wrongly asserted that it was a “Trump campaign product,” while also claiming Trump supporters would show up at the polls with weapons to intimidate voters.
Jankowicz’s appointment once again underscores how moral panics about ‘disinformation’ and ‘misinformation’ are contrived frauds designed to bury legitimate information harmful to the regime’s narrative.
Both the Hunter Biden laptop scandal and the lab leak theory, two of the biggest news stories of 2020, were truthful yet branded “disinformation” so they could be buried by social media algorithms to prevent their viral spread.
Along with ‘fact checkers’, the new DHS disinformation unit is just another branch of the Ministry of Truth, which as in Orwell’s 1984, serves a primary purpose of hiding and eliminating the truth.
