Our nation is in the best of hands.
Vice President Kamala Harris announced the launch of a “Task Force to Address Online Harassment and Abuse” Thursday at the White House.
Harris praised the task force in her remarks as a means for societal progress, saying, “No one should have to endure abuse just because they are attempting to participate in society.”
Unless they’re conservatives.
A memo on the task force released by the White House condemned “gendered disinformation” and proclaimed the administration will be “developing programs and policies to address online harassment, abuse, and disinformation campaigns targeting women and LGBTQI+ individuals who are public and political figures, government and civic leaders, activists, and journalists in the United States and globally.”
The memo suggested that online “harassment” has devastating costs for democracy itself by “undermining [people’s] ability to exercise their human rights and participate in democracy, governance, and civic life.”
What exactly is “gendered disinformation”? Assume that it will be interpreted as broadly as possible to suppress any kind of cultural or values-based opposition.
Like so many other of the leftist ask forces, this one drafts in the…
(i) the Secretary of State;
(ii) the Secretary of Defense;
(iii) the Attorney General;
(iv) the Secretary of Commerce;
(v) the Secretary of Health and Human Services;
(vi) the Secretary of Education;
(vii) the Secretary of Veterans Affairs;
(viii) the Secretary of Homeland Security;
…along with many other officials, because it’s not like the Secretary of Defense or the Secretary of Veterans Affairs have anything better to do than listen about Gamergate briefings from purple-haired social justice trolls.
Meanwhile, AG Garland can’t manage to do anything about targeted attacks on Supreme Court justices or pro-life clinics, but will be right on this.
