Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was not happy with Joe Biden.
DeSantis just let everyone know that fact.
And Ron DeSantis hit Joe Biden with some major league bad news.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was among the many Americans disturbed by Joe Biden creating a Disinformation Governance Board to police speech online.
DeSantis compared Joe Biden’s new goon squad to the Ministry of Truth from George Orwell’s “1984” while also promising that Florida would fight back against any effort by the Biden administration to police speech.
“You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country. And so let’s get real here,” DeSantis told supporters at an event. “We’re not gonna let Biden get away with this one, so we will be fighting back.”
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the disinformation board would police “Russian disinformation.”
DeSantis explained that what the administration really sought to do was claim all criticism and negative stories about Joe Biden were Russian disinformation and then present an official government version of the “truth” out to the public.
“They now have an idea – and I honestly thought this was a belated April Fool’s joke – but they are actually going to create in the Department of Homeland Security a Bureau of Disinformation. It’s basically a Ministry of Truth,” DeSantis added. “And what they want to do is, they want to be able to put out false narratives without people being able to speak out and fight back.”
DeSantis alluded to the disinformation agent running the organization, a woman named Nina Jankowicz, who advocated for COVID lockdowns, claimed the Christopher Steele Russian collusion dossier was real, and also falsely claimed the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation, as representing the true goals of the Disinformation Governance Board.
“They want to be able to say things like ‘Russia collusion’ and perpetuate hoaxes and then have people like us be silenced. They want to be able to advocate for COVID lockdowns, they want to be able to advocate for school closures, things that are not supported by the evidence. But then when you speak out, they want to stifle dissent,” DeSantis declared. “And so we reject this bureau in the state of Florida.”

This disinformation board is clearly illegal, unconstitutional, and an assault on American traditions and norms.
Before Joe Biden took office, no president even would have thought to create a government body to censor the internet and produce official state propaganda ahead of an election.
But that is exactly the path Joe Biden just chose.
