Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis vowed Friday to challenge President Joe Biden’s proposed “Disinformation Governance Board,” comparing it to an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth.”
“You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country,” DeSantis said in remarks made Friday morning in Williston, Florida. “Let’s get real here. Let’s make sure we are doing things to benefit Floridians and Americans, but we’re not going to let Biden get away with this one. We will be fighting back.”
Governor DeSantis told the press on Friday that he was so shocked by Biden’s “disinformation bureau” that he thought it was a “belated April Fools joke” and went on to calling the owellian practice an attempt to enforce regime-approved narratives and to stifle dissent.
DeSantis has been a long critic of Joe Biden, arguing his draconian policies and fighting for the freedom of both Floridians and all Americans since the Covid-19 lockdowns in 2020.
