'LEAVE IT TO DEMS': McCarthy Blasts Biden's Disinformation Board, Calls it 'Orwellian'

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.29.22

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is not a fan of Biden’s new “Ministry of Truth.” While speaking with the Daily Wire, the California Rep blasted the new initiative as “Orwellian” and calls board leader Nina Jankowicz a “political activist.”

“Leave it to Democrats to think free speech is the problem and more government is the solution,” McCarthy said in an exclusive statement to The Daily Wire. “The notion that the same party that spent four years promoting the Russia collusion hoax, suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop story, and equated parents to domestic terrorists believes it has the credibility to tell Americans what is true is laughable.”

“And it is telling that the person who would run Biden’s Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board is a political activist who has a long history of falling for and spreading disinformation,” McCarthy continued. “It is easy to imagine this person abusing the term ‘disinformation’ to suppress facts and spin away inconvenient truths about the administration’s many failures, including their failures to secure the border. The idea that the federal government should control speech sounds uncomfortably close to the Thought Police. Biden must immediately abandon his plan to create a modern-day Ministry of Truth.”

According to the Daily Mail, “in an October 2020 report, Jankowicz shared her skepticism of the contents of the laptop and the claims it belonged to Hunter.”

‘We should view it as a Trump campaign product,’ she told the Daily News.

“I shudder to think about if free speech absolutists were taking over more platforms, what that would look like for the marginalized communities,’ Jankowicz told NPR last week.
