As President Joe Biden and his administration continue to take intense levels of flak over the swift creation of what’s being called the “Disinformation Governance Board,” managed by the Department of Homeland Security, former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard introduced another interesting theory over the weekend.
According to Fox News, Gabbard, in no uncertain terms, suggested that it was former President Barack Obama behind the creation of what critics are calling the Biden administration’s “Ministry of Truth.”
Gabbard was referencing a recent — and bizarre — speech made by Obama on the topic of social media regulation, only to see the DGB formed less than a week after his speech.
Others believe the board was formed as a direct response to Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, as the Tesla billionaire essentially stripped the far left of their most effective messaging platform overnight.
“Just a front man”
The former Hawaii representative tweeted her thoughts on the matter over the weekend.
“Biden is just a front man,” Gabbard wrote. “Obama, April 21: social media censors ‘don’t go far enough,’ so the government needs to step in to do the job. Six days later, Homeland Security rolls out the ‘Ministry of Truth’ (aka Disinformation Governance Board).”

“Now the good news is that almost all the big tech platforms now acknowledge some responsibility for content on their platforms, and they’re investing in large team of people to monitor it,” Obama had stated during his speech at Stanford University earlier this month.
“But while content moderation can limit the distribution of clearly dangerous content, it doesn’t go far enough,” Obama added at the time.
Calling out fellow Dems
Gabbard didn’t stop with just a tweet in her criticism on the issue. She pointed out in a video the fact that Democrats have largely been silent in the wake of the news of the creation of the new, creepy government department.
Democrats who say you’re against dictatorships, where are your voices condemning the Ministry of Truth? Even worse are Republicans who say such a propaganda board is needed but it should be headed by someone who’s not biased—not Jankowicz.

Clearly, Gabbard is one of perhaps a small handful of high-profile Democrats who aren’t afraid of fairly criticizing the Biden regime. More Dems had better get on board with Gabbard, or their midterm losses will likely be even greater.
