Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ to Silence Gun Owners
On Thursday, Gun Owners of America (GOA) and Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requestwith the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) asking key questions about the Biden Administration’s plans to create a “Disinformation Governance Board.”
The Biden Administration is taking a concept out of George Orwell’s classic work, 1984, where the Ministry of Truth is tasked with deciding what is, in fact, true or false.
In Biden’s America, the “Ministry of Truth” will operate under the moniker of the Disinformation Governance Board, which will be chaired by left-wing dystopian author Nina Jankowicz, who has called for censorship and spewed several far-Left conspiracy theories in past years.
In a statement released to the press, GOA Senior Vice President Erich Pratt stated, “Once again, this administration is orchestrating not-so-subtle actions to restrict the Constitutional rights of Americans, especially those who disagree with the Left’s radical agenda.
“This direct threat on our First Amendment rights can be viewed as nothing more than a precursor to further chip away at our Second Amendment rights,” Pratt said. “We look forward to reviewing the records from this FOIA request to expose this proposed Ministry of Truth for what it really is — a political attempt to silence dissenting views.”
As we explain here and here, GOA has experienced the fangs of Leftists censorship on multiple occasions. So putting a “Ministry of Truth” inside the federal government would only exacerbate this problem.
GOA and GOF’s FOIA request demands specific records related to the selection of Board members … about how the Board will surveil the American people … whether Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter was a consideration in establishing the Board, and much more. This information will be shared with congressmen who have introduced legislation to defund the Board.
Stay tuned for further updates.
