Former Democrat congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has been a fierce critic of her party’s slide into full-blown authoritarianism and on Sunday morning, she offered up a provocative take on the Biden regime’s terrifying new propaganda and censorship entity, suggesting that a familiar character is behind it.
Last week, Americans were given a reality check on just how rogue that the current administration has gone under President Joe Biden when news broke that rabidly partisan Nina Jankowicz would be heading up the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, a chilling step in establishment efforts to control the narrative in order to retain their iron-fisted grip on political power.
Jankowicz’s appointment as the nation’s newly minted information czar comes as leftists are in an uproar over billionaire Elon Musk’s buying of social media giant Twitter and Gabbard pointed out the interesting coincidence that word of her gig comes a mere week after former President Barack Obama delivered a fascistic address about “disinformation” at Stanford University.
In a tweet that is guaranteed to cause an uproar with the defenders of censorship, Gabbard posted a clip of Mr. Obama’s speech and implying that the flailing Biden is merely dancing on the puppet strings being pulled by his one-time and perhaps current boss, referring to the DHS’s speech police in terms directly out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.
“Biden is just a front man,” she wrote. “Obama, April 21: social media censors “don’t go far enough,” so the government needs to step in to do the job. Six days later, Homeland Security rolls out the ‘Ministry of Truth’ (aka Disinformation Governance Board).”

“Now the good news is that almost all the big tech platforms now acknowledge some responsibility for content on their platforms, and they’re investing in large team of people to monitor it.” Obama said. “Given the sheer volume of content, this strategy can feel like a game of Whac-A-Mole.”
After saying that he had spoken to tech executives about censoring content, Obama suggested that they alone are not able to adequately purge non-compliant voices from social media, striking an ominous tone, “But while content moderation can limit the distribution of clearly dangerous content, it doesn’t go far enough.” Obama said.
Days later, America was introduced to the Disinformation Governance Board and its commissar Jankowicz.
Gabbard also spoke out against the latest move to go to the despotism playbook in order to clamp down on speech during an appearance on Fox News with Sean Hannity and responded after being asked by the host, “How do you feel about the Ministry of Truth?”
“This is the kind of the thing that you see in dictatorships,” she replied, “this Ministry of Truth, this department of propaganda that the Biden has just stood up and the reason why you see this in dictatorships is because they’re afraid of us, they’re afraid of the people, they’re afraid that we might actually think for ourselves and so now they’ve created this, this body that will do two things.”

“Number one, it will use taxpayer dollars to work through the mainstream media and flood the airwaves with whatever their propaganda narrative is that they’re pushing at any given time and try to drown out anyone with alternate views.” Gabbard said.
“And number two,” she added, “they will silence dissenting voices through intimidation.”
She said that it is important to recognize, “This isn’t something new, this is something that they have already been doing, that’s happening right now, the only difference is they’re formalizing it, making it official which if there’s a silver lining in this, it is they’re revealing exactly who they are and why they’re doing it, what they’re trying to accomplish and it allows us, the American people to stand up and say ‘hey, you know what? We’re not gonna let you get away with this crap. We will take a stand, we will reject it and we will throw out of office those who are continuing to push and propagate this un-democratic, anti-free speech mission.”
She followed her Fox News appearance up with a Saturday tweet, calling for the rejection of the regime’s tyranny
The hysterical reaction by those in power & their MSM mouthpieces to all Americans being allowed to exercise our free speech exposes their tyrannical tendencies, as does their creation of a “Ministry of Truth.” All freedom-loving Americans—Dem/Rep/Ind—need to reject such tyrants

With each passing day under Biden, America becomes more and more of an alien place and it is very clear now that the regime is going to spare no effort to retain its grip on power and the official narrative by any means possible, even if it means embracing the methods used by history’s most repressive totalitarian states regardless of who is really calling the shots.
