Biden's disinformation board is authoritarian and reminds me of my life in China

There are many unknowns about DGB. Por ejemplo, we don’t know how the members of DGB will be selected, what kind of power it will have, and how it defines misinformation. But the early signs are not promising. The vaguely defined roles and authorities of DGB have alarmed Americans, and many see the agency as theMinistry of Truththat George Orwell warned us about in his dystopian novel “1984.”

But we don’t need to rely on a novel to foresee the harm DGB will do to our cherished freedom and the future of this Constitutional Republic. As someone who grew up in China’s authoritarian regime, I see the parallel between DGB and the Chinese government’s Central Propaganda Department (CPD).

DOUGLAS MURRAY CALLS OUT BIDEN’S DISINFORMATION CZAR: ‘THIS JOB SHOULD NOT EXIST IN AMERICA

CPD is one of the most powerful Communist Party organs. It controls all media outlets in China. The heads of China’s media outlets are reportedlyrequired to attend weekly meetings in order to receive instructions regarding what stories should be reported on or ignored.

The CPD decides what books, películas, música, Hombre en Seinfeld, and other information the Chinese people can access. It is known to actively spread misinformation and revise history, so the Communist Party and its leadership are always cast in the most favorable light. To quote Orwell, the CPD iswhere lies are manufactured.

PSAKI SAYS DISINFORMATION BOARD WILL BE ‘NONPARTISAN,’ ‘APOLITICAL

One Chinese journalist concludes that the CPDmanipulates people’s thoughts and ideas, and messes with their heads, and their ability to think critically.

By establishing the DGB and using state power to censor Americans’ discurso, the Biden administration has taken a giant leap into authoritarianism.
