President Biden sets up a ‘Ministry of Truth’?

Reminiscent of the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s infamous dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, there are reports that President Joe Biden has set up a similar office called the “Disinformation Governance Board.”

Its goal is to fight disinformation on the internet.

Orwell described the Ministry of Truth this way:

The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink.

The Post Millennial had some interesting things to say about the agency’s newly appointed Executive Director, Nina Jankowicz:

Jankowicz herself though has been revealed to have spread disinformation on a number of topics.

In screenshots of old tweets posted to Twitter, she was seen dismissing the Hunter Biden laptop as Russian misinformation, slamming free speech, and bashed Twitter’s decision to stop taking action against 2020 election posts.

Jankowicz has on numerous occasions discredited the Hunter Biden laptop story, saying it’s a “fairy tale” and disinformation.

    Sounds like the government is trying to establish a religion… isn’t that forbidden in the constitution?
