Disinfo. The board will censor speech, the left always does when they get power

On Friday’s show of Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) argued that the DHS Disinformation Governance Council will eventually dictate what people can and cannot. not say because “This is where the left always takes over a society… you tell me a place where the left has taken over where, ultimately, they haven’t tried to.

McClintock said, “It’s a Ministry of Truth. It’s a hallmark of any dictatorship, and it’s contrary to American principles of free speech. Our whole democracy is based on the free exchange of ideas. In a free society like ours, you have the right to express your opinion, whatever it is. It can be hateful, stupid, inaccurate, knowing that as long as there is a free exchange of ideas, better ideas, healthier opinions, kinder feelings, more accurate data will always prevail. But when you have a government institution telling you what you can and cannot say, you no longer have a functioning democracy, and that’s where the left takes us. This is where the left always takes a company. Because they can’t win a debate in an open forum, so they have to suppress opposition. And you tell me a place where the left took control where ultimately they didn’t try to.
