biden creates disinformation board to police the internet

Conservatives on social media slammed the Biden administration after it was announced that a “Disinformation Governance Board” is being established to combat “disinformation” in the 2022 midterms.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified Wednesday that a Disinformation Governance Board had recently been created, days after Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter, to combat online disinformation and will be led by Undersecretary for Policy Rob Silvers and principal deputy general counsel Jennifer Gaskill.

“The goal is to bring the resources of (DHS) together to address this threat,” Mayorkas said, adding that the department is focused on the spread of disinformation in minority communities.

Caiden Cowger is a 14 year oldwith his own internet radio show. In a recent broadcast he said “Obama is making kids gay”. His show has now been removed from two internet radio hosting sites, under “hate-speech” rules.

In the program Cowger tells how he believes homosexuality is  “perverted” and that the it is becoming increasingly hard to tell other teenagers the gospel, if they are gay. He tells about a boy in his school who claims he has bullied after a girl witnessed to him. The boy’s mother, Rhonda Mangus, (she is a former gay news feature editor for Now Public Media) led the campaign to have Cowger’s program removed from Speaker internet radio.  She claimed the program breached the terms of usage policy, which state: “unlawful, defamatory, libellous, slanderous, threatening, pornographic, obscene, vulgar, harassing, harmful, hateful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive or is otherwise inappropriate.”

There has been some confusion over Cowger’s youtube video of the program. Some saying that YouTube removed the program under it’s hate-speech policies. However, Cowger dismisses this, saying his account was hacked and he has had to set up a new YouTube channel.

However, listening to Cowger’s program he merely states his opinion. His comments may upset and offend a lot of people. But states he is against “gay bullying”, and at no point does he endorse abuse against homosexual teens. The problem with the usage policy is it is subjective. What is offensive to one person, is not to another; what one person deems “inappropriate” is different from anthers. The Bible, the Koran, is offensive to some people. Are we going to ban the Bible, for fear of offending?

What should be of greater concern, than a 14 year old boy saying he thinks “Obama is making kids gay”. Is that the liberal left media is trying to shut him down. Right or wrong what about free speech?
