Gov. DeSantis declares war on what he deems Joe Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’
Ron DeSantis

'This is not acceptable, and in Florida we're not going to have it.'

In Williston Friday, Gov. Ron DeSantis took aim at the Joe Biden administration’s effort to have the Department of Homeland Security educate the public about disinformation, arguing the new “Disinformation Governance Board” is akin to George Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth.”

DeSantis said the effort really amounts to a war against conservative dissent against a “decaying and discredited ruling elite in this country.”

“You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country,” DeSantis said. “We’re not going to let Biden get away with this one. We will be fighting back.”

The Governor referred to the proposed bureau as a “belated April Fool’s Joke,” but one with a malign intent: to “stifle dissent.”

“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 said. “They want to be able to say things like ‘Russian collusion’ and perpetuate hoaxes and have people like us be silenced.”

The Governor called attention to the appointed leader of the agency, Wilson Center disinformation fellow Nina Jankowicz, as an “advocate for COVID lockdowns who herself has put out disinformation about the Hunter Biden tapes, who supported Russian collusion conspiracy theories.”

“This is not acceptable, and in Florida we’re not going to have it,” DeSantis said, going on to add that the “public is sick of this.”

According to Homeland Security Today, the so-called Disinformation Governance Board will work to counter misinformation and disinformation. The Associated Press notes that work will take many forms, ranging from scrutinizing messaging received by undocumented immigrants crossing the Mexican-U.S. border to election disinformation, such as that from Russia. However, conservatives warn the office will be used to chill internal dissent.

“We reject this bureau in the state of Florida,” DeSantis added. “We believe it’s essential that individual Floridians and Americans be able to speak out against false narratives trying to be jammed down our throats by this regime.”

DeSantis also called attention to the President seeming less than robust to some observers, describing Biden as “floundering on the world stage,” and “shaking hands with the air.”

“It’s sad,” DeSantis said over laughter from the crowd, “but it’s also negatively impacting people’s lives.”

        It’s SO 1970s to do that “love it or leave it” bull. What an amazing display of mysogyny. To think, we thought “binders full of women” was bad. Desantis appears more every day to be a product of some kind of weird political inbreeding. He’s a politician with a Princess complex who’s lost his glass slipper and exposed an Achilles heel bigger than his ego. So far, I’ve heard zip from him or his cohorts about how exactly getting rid of Disney’s special arrangement benefits the state of Florida, or any of its citizens of any party. Point me to anything other than “We’ll show them!”, I’m waiting…

          Disney has gotten away with murder, paying little to no taxes, spe ial perks as they fleece families with high ticket prices!!! Not a family friendly establishment!!!! While the average FL citizen’s taxes and Insurance go sky high while out of staters from failing blue states flock to FL. At least our Governor has a backbone and tries to fight the tyranny of a Government in DC trying to absolutely destroy and devide America and her people!!!

            All Disney did was publicly say it didn’t support the don’t say gay bill…that’s it, Disney only stated their opinion on it. But because they did and because DeSantis has such thin skin and a megalomaniac he’s out to destroy them…??? That’s absolutely crazy lol…but y’all support that lol but then cry about being scared freedom of speech in this country is being taken away…so hypocritical, don’t ya think??

        I think there’s a hell of a lot of us who want her and others like her here. Didn’t DeSantis just say in the article that we are the “ruling elite” here? That seems to say there are enough ppl who agree with Meredith here. DeSantis is one to talk about squashing dissent…Look what he’s done to Disney just for DISAGREEING with him! Get real.

      Free Speech… Individualism… That’s the American way and if someone doesn’t like that, they can state their opinion, but that shouldn’t change a single thing. American citizens should be able to voice their opinions freely and the government needs to stay out of it! THANK YOU Gov. DeSantis. You truly are fighting for the American citizen, common decency (re: woke Disney) and the culture of the REPUBLIC of the United States of America – FREEDOM and LIBERTY! Keep praying together – One Nation under God.

    April 29, 2022 at 11:42 am

    Thank God DeSantis is a man of principle who will stand up for America. The federal government is going crazy, and America is going to suffer terribly for it unless we call a halt this November. No more Democrats in any federal position. That is a requirement of freedom.

    • Yeet McDeet

      April 29, 2022 at 6:49 pm

      That’s a bit harsh, we can’t have either side having 100% of power in their hands there definitely needs to be a mix / balance. That said about 99% of democrats out there definitely do need to be kicked the fuck out. Also about 80% of republicans need to be kicked out too and replaced with centrists.
      Actually fuck that, let’s just have no elite / 1% in positions of power and have it be working men that actually understand the problems with the country and are willing to stand up for them rather than people only concerned about getting elected. Both sides have flawed arguments, albeit the left has significantly more.
      The right doesn’t ever want anything to change, and the left wants to be fascist, neither are good or sustainable.

    We have actual problems here in Florida. But Desantis is only interested in manufacturing problems that never existed then passing bills to say he fixed them. If anyone disagrees he punishes them (ex: Disney). He wants to control women’s bodies, what books can be allowed in school libraries and which parts of history should be taught to our kids. He’s not a leader he’s a wanna be dictator.

      As FP moniker in past demonstrated, I am legend with attacks. This balls less fake moniker only proved it more.

      As for Lake O. and the best Gov ever on environment, America’s Gov lobbied past Potus #45 for funding and received funds to address Lake O and waterways, actuaries. DeSantis has stapled state and federal funds towards actuaries clean up across the state. He is the environmental Gov. Save the sleepy Joe BS. In 19 & 20 Trump budgeted and helped him. Period! Don’t give me that crap.

      Facts are funny things. DeSantis rising tide for all. 3.2 unemployment, lower than USA. Top 10 in country. All jobs and some recovered pre pandemic. 8.7% wage growth, third in country. $15 billion In reserves due to his fiscal stewardship, $20 billion approaching. Florida growth revenues through the roof. $621 million over budget estimates 2 months in row, with 4 months left for fiscal. Unprecedented public school scholarship expansion for minorities and poor. Best Gov on environment.

      America’s Gov, Desantis the best!
      Rising tide for all.

          Ocean the list is very long and I have shared multiple times on DeSantis.

          Imitation is the utmost in flattery.
          Fake moniker Tom is balls less, just like FP monitor made me legend, he the fake Tom ensures the legend grows.

          America’s Gov started Lake O and waterways, actuaries support. Past Potus 45 helped him gain funding. State spending across state for clean ups.

          Facts are funny things.
          Florida is approaching over $15 billion in finance reserves. He’s brought thousands of jobs, businesses to Florida. Manufacturing jobs growth has accelerated to tops in country. 3.2% unemployment, top 10 in USA. 8.7% wage growth, third in USA. He’s expanded public school voucher scholarships, bigly. Poor and minorities. Trade school for high schools and junior college expanded.
          Raised teachers pay, bonuses. Law enforcement pay, bonuses. First Responders pay bonuses.
          Business’s thriving. Florida is the place to be.

          America’s Gov, Gov DeSantis rising tide for all, not a few like Dums.

          He us clearly the leader in Repub party nationally, excluding 45.

          The moron Manchurians hate Desantis so much they’d take Trump. Mental morons!

          FYI, GOP in Florida, 120,000 new party registration, Dem use to be up 200,000. It’s a 450,000 flip. Brutal for Dums.

          DeSantis wins bigly in November!
          Everything in play after.

          Thanks ocean Joe, Manchurians are fools, in which I suffer gladly, easily and happily, Not a problem for me, as you know I am legend!

          Hey ocean, can you and all your Manchurians actually exist without talking bout Trump and Jan. 6?

          Fake moniker Tom ensures the real Tom, that my legendary status grows.

          Florida GOP is up 120,000 on Dems, use to be over 200,000 for Dums. Over 359,000 flip now.

          DeSantis rocks Florida. Independents, Hispanics, and Repubs are all in.

          Lake O is all him, actuaries waterways, between state funds and federal appropriation he lobbied and received from 45! Stop the Biden garbage. Also, due to him, Florida is over $15 billion financial reserves. Approaching $20 billion.

          The list of accomplishment is endless
          for America’s Gov, he now is America’s leader! With 35% support, even with Trump on race support him. He clearly is the whiz kid, new generation conservative leader. Enjoy!

      Total Manchurian liar.
      Dem, Dum Manchurian.

      DeSantis, America’s Gov. Rising tide for all, not a few.

      Thankfully, the United States is not a democracy and mobs cannot rule… people cannot be forced to accept something they do not wish to accept – even if you call it “non-inclusivity”.
      The United States is a Constitutional REPUBLIC where the individual has exclusive rights over whatever the mob is attempting to force-feed.

      Thank God for Gov. DeSantis and other elected officials that stand up for the TRUE CULTURE of this country…

        True Culture according to whom? You? This is a GIANT country and We’re all Americans. There are cultural differences in every corner of this nation; thats what makes us great. We need to celebrate our differences rather than trying to homogenize ourselves. Politics IS NOT a zero sum game. There is room for everyone at the table.

        Tom, personal attacks because you lack the intelligence to articulate an actual argument against anyone who doesn’t repeat the hypocrisy of the MAGA crowd. I’m not surprised, I just hope you stop calling your fellow American the enemy one day.
        The end of America is inevitable when fellow Americans no long look for a solution to the issues. Instead you blame them for problems of the past and create issues that push us closer to civil war.
        At least you can say you were a participant in the political strife that killed the American empire.

    Recent events have convinced me there is indeed evil, and indeed a Satan, and he firmly has his hands on the hearts of Ron DeSantis and the modern GOP.

    Just look at the disgusting sexist replies to women who commented above. The Republican Party has been taken over by hateful, angry, low IQ bigots. Nazis, KKKers and Fascists who openly cheer Putin, lie and distort the truth about anyone their conspiracy pushing masters tell them are “liberal,” a term they consistently misdefine.

    The GOP base is now a dumbed down, indoctrinated, armed mob, ruled by extremist anti-government “Libertarian Elites who consider them expendable tools.

    God Bless America, and God Bless our President.

      It ain’t sexist, it’s equal opportunity as you are a fool as well, Wayno. Spare us your fake indignation. Meredith is a major flake Manchurian. Please, go diddle your fiddle.

      Please… clearly it is the Democratic party force-feeding socialism, critical race theory, common core BS, BLM and Antifa BS… Biden has destroyed the economy with his BS stupidity.
      And the entire Disney/LGBDQtip BS is just another attempt to destroy our children… just stop with the destruction.

      Trump/DeSantis 2022 – SAVE THE REPUBLIC (the United States is NOT a mob-rule Democracy… It’s about the individual not collectivism).

        DeSantis pulls the alarm and you respond with fear and anger. Here’s a tip: check under the bed, and don’t forget the closets and attic!

      Your talking points are old, worn out and need editing from Ron Klain. LMAO such a piece of garbage.

    Only a lying scumbag whose entire brand is built on misinformation is going to be upset about this. So it’s natural that ron and tucker are going to lose their minds over it. Typical.

    Yay Florida! One of the worst states in the country for health care. Read all it about in the link below. Meanwhile, your mini-Trump governor continues to build strawmen to attack, to please the crazed far-right base. I’m amazed Floridians aren’t smart enough to figure this out. (But then again, Florida’s education system isn’t so good…and DeSantis is banning most math books, so maybe you all are getting what you deserve.) Read it, if you can read: https://www.sun-sentinel.com/health/fl-ne-nsf-florida-health-system-ranks-low-20200911-4pboykodonc6hkayeawhjs3sgu-story.html

      Memo to Jordan, and all Dem, Dum
      Manchurians.

      State does not control health care.
      It’s a federal issue. Stop being so ignorant. Geez.

    The immediate focus will be on misinformation from human smugglers, who spread false claims about U.S. border policy to migrants to help drum up business.
    Also, they will focus on disinformation coming from Russia.

  • Beth

    So far every time Biden speaks, it’s a lie.
    The disinformation board is to further suppress freedom of speech.
    Every citizen should have the right to free speech.
    It’s so the Biden regime can distribute disinformation,

    The Federal government does not get to cherry pick and tell us what is disinformation. The woman that was put in charge of this department complained that the executive branch under Trump should not have the power to decide what is or what isn’t fake news, but now it’s ok because her team is in charge? Nah, it doesn’t work that way. This is literal 1984 crap and should not be funded by our tax dollars and anyone supporting this for tribal reasons is dead wrong.
