Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday spoke out in opposition to the Biden administration’s proposed “disinformation board” run by the Division of Homeland Safety.
“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,” DeSantis mentioned. “It’s basically a Ministry of Truth. 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. They want to be able to say things like Russia collusion and perpetuate hoaxes and have people like us be silenced.”
“They want to be able to advocate for COVID lockdowns,” he mentioned. “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. So we reject this bureau in the state of Florida.”
