DeSantis vows action against Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’ as Republican fury builds. By Melissa Fine.

During a Friday press conference, Governor Ron DeSantis vowed that Florida “will be fighting back” against the Biden administration’s newly-created “Disinformation Governance Board,” described by DeSantis’s office as an “unprecedented threat” to the Constitution.

“I actually thought this was just a belated April Fool’s joke, but they are actually going to create in the Department of Homeland Security a bureau of disinformation,” DeSantis said. “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 then have people like us be silenced,” he continued. “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.” …

Clearly, our entire principles that the country was founded on you cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country,” DeSantis said. …

“We will be fighting back,” DeSantis stated. …

After sharing screenshots of past, disturbing tweets from Jankowicz, [DeSantis press secretary Christina Pushaw] stated, “The only thing that surprises me about this whole psyop is that they announced it publicly. Like… the Biden Administration seriously thought Americans would be super excited to finally get a Federal Ministry of Truth with a creepy theater kid in charge?”
