RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Imagine tweeting something and having your message edited by someone else. At least in the United States, this could soon be the case if the new U.S. Secretary of Truth, Nina Jankowicz, has her way.
The political left in the United States doesn’t just want to censor away unpopular opinions and views and ban conservatives from speaking out, say critics.
The new U.S. Secretary of Truth (Disinformation Governance Board), Nina Jankowicz, who is known for spreading disinformation, now wants to distort public opinions in the ideologically driven fight against “fake news.”
In a new video, Jankowicz said that “trusted individuals” (e.g., herself) should be given the power to edit tweets – as on Wikipedia, for example.
Jankowicz claimed that she was entitled to do so “because I am verified.” Then she lamented that there are people on Twitter with opinions different from hers who also have the blue checkmark but “shouldn’t be verified” because they are “not trustworthy.”
Then, “verified people could edit Twitter the same way they edit Wikipedia to add context to certain tweets,” Jankowicz said of her wishes.
She then gave the example of President Trump tweeting about election fraud and claiming it was apolitical. “Someone could add context from one of the 60 lawsuits that have been in court, or something that an election official in one of the states has said, maybe your secretary of state and his press conferences, something like that,” said Jankowicz, who herself has dubious Ukraine connections and spread disinformation regarding Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell.”
“We add context, so people get the broader picture, not just a single allegation in a tweet,” she added.
Of course, Twitter already provides such tweets with appropriate warnings, but now Jankowicz wants approved regime propagandists to be able to insert their accounts on an individual basis.
Virtually an army of left-wing Internet trolls scour Twitter and then add their views to unpleasant opinions. Of course, conservative Twitter users should not be able to do the same to tweets from left-wing users. After all, conservatives are not trustworthy to Jankowicz.
It can be assumed that if the United States takes the lead here, Europeans and Latin Americans will also take this step and, in turn, establish their own “truth ministries.”
Various legal bases for restricting freedom of expression on the Internet (supposedly to combat “hate and incitement”) have already been introduced in Europe.
