(FiveNation.com)- According to the Media Research Center, one of the people involved in the Department of Homeland Security’s unconstitutional Disinformation Governance Board has not one, but three connections to Leftwing billionaire George Soros.
But don’t worry folks. Biden’s “Ministry of Truth” is totally “non-partisan.”
Jennifer Daskal, who is co-leading the DHS disinformation board was previously a fellow at the Soros’ Open Society Institute. In her role, she worked on “issues related to privacy and law enforcement access to data across borders.”
In addition to that, Daskal was the founding editor of the Just Security blog which received $675,000 from Soros’ Open Society Foundations between 2017 and 2019.
Daskal was also a senior counterterrorism counsel for Human Rights Watch. From 2000 to 2014, George Soros donated over $32 million to Human Right Watch.
Soros has a history of bankrolling groups that promote censorship through the aegises of “fact-checking.” Among the groups to benefit from Soros cash is The Poynter Institute’s left-leaning International Fact-Checking Network which has pressured YouTube to step up censorship on its platform. Soros also donated money to the UK-based “Full Fact” that, in 2020, attempted to quash the lab leak theory of COVID-19.
To believe that this Disinformation Governance Board is nothing but a harmless, non-partisan organization established to protect the free speech of Americans is a stretch.
Last week, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton introduced legislation to defund the so-called Ministry of Truth. The bill is co-sponsored by Sens. Todd Young, John Boozman, Ted Cruz, Rick Scott, Jim Risch, Roger Marshall, Mike Crapo, Mike Lee, Thom Tillis, Cindy Hyde-Smith, Marsha Blackburn, Joni Ernst, Cynthia Lummis, Marco Rubio, Mike Braun, John Kennedy, James Lankford, and Kevin Cramer.
The legislation stipulates that no Federal funds can be used to “establish or support the activities” of Biden’s Ministry of Truth or any “similar entity established” by DHS.
Senator Cotton described the Disinformation Governance Board as “unconstitutional and unAmerican.”
In a fiery exchange during a Senate hearing last week, Senator Rand Paul lit into DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the Ministry of Truth:
Sen @RandPaul just EVISCERATED Secretary Mayorkas on the Department of Homeland Security's "Ministry of Truth."
