Jonathan Turley: Biden 'the Most Anti-Free Speech President since John Adams'
Liberal legal scholar slams Biden's 'Disinformation Governance Board'
Liberal legal scholar Jonathan Turley has slammed Democrat Joe Biden's censorship efforts via his new taxpayer-funded “Disinformation Governance Board.”
On Monday, Turley reacted to the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) appointment of radical leftist Nina Jankowicz to run its new censorship board.
He appeared on Fox News's “America Reports” and blasted the Democrats' "chilling" efforts as an attack on free speech.
Many have dubbed the so-called "Disinformation Governance Board" as the "Ministry of Truth" after the propaganda department featured in George Orwell's book "1984."
Turley said the Biden administration hiring “one of the most outspoken critics of free speech” to police what it deemed “disinformation” was “telling.”
He argued that Biden is “arguably the most anti-free speech president since John Adams.”
“I think it’s telling that the Biden administration went out and recruited one of the most outspoken critics of free speech,” Turley stated.
"[M]y expectation is that they are going to now try to minimize this group,” he added.
"But what is really important about this is that she is pitch-perfect for the Biden administration.
"I mean, President Biden, I’ve said before, is arguably the most anti-free speech president since John Adams.
"I mean, the record of this administration is chilling."
"And they went out and found this individual who has been a huge advocate for corporate and public censorship, has a distinctly anti-free speech view, and that’s what’s so troubling when the secretary says she has a long background here," Turley continued.
"Well, it’s the wrong background.
"It’s like saying a book burner has a background in literacy.
"Yeah, he works with books, but that’s not the background you’re looking for.”
