'YOU HAVE NO CLUE': Paul Torches Mayorkas and Disinfo Board, 'Do You Think We're Stupid?'

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.05.22

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) absolutely torched DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the recently-announced Disinformation Governance Board aka ‘Ministry of Truth.’ Paul says we don’t need the government to tell us what’s true, using COVID as a recent example of the government’s shortcomings.

“I’ve said a million times that cloth masks don’t work. YouTube takes me down. They’re a private company I can have that beef with him. What about you? You’re going to look at that? I often say that natural immunity from having had the infection is equal to the vaccine or better. You’re going to take that down?” Paul asked Mayorkas.

“Are you going to put information out there saying that I’m spreading disinformation?” Paul asked.

Mayorkas said the DHS is “not the public’s health experts to make those determinations.”

“So public health won’t be part of the Disinformation Governance Board? No COVID disinformation? Yes or no?” Paul asked.

Mayorkas wouldn’t directly answer Paul’s questions, instead accusing the senator of being “vague.” Mayorkas then provided an example of recent disinformation on COVID.

“‘Do not under any circumstances accept the vaccine at a FEMA overseeing vaccination center because they are actually peddling fentanyl,'” Mayorkas said as an example.

information?” he asked. “That’s what we’re doing, what we would do. Should FEMA issue accurate information that the vaccinations that we are administering in the sites that we oversee actually are the COVID-19 vaccines?”

“I have a greater respect for the American people than you do. I think the American people can figure out the truth,” the senator said. “And if you think the American people need to be told there’s not fentanyl in the vaccination, feel free to say it. But the thing is, is if you are going to go around saying that you’re the arbiter of information and of disinformation, I think you have no clue. And you don’t have the perspective of history knowing that disinformation, the largest progenitor of disinformation in our history, has probably been the U.S. government.”

“Do you know, the greatest propagator of disinformation in the history of the world is? The U.S. government,” Paul said. “Are you familiar with McNamara? The Pentagon Papers? Are you familiar with George W. Bush and the weapons of mass destruction? Are you familiar with Iran-contra?”
