(Republican Insider) – Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert of Colorado is not at all happy about the Biden administration’s attempt to build a real life Ministry of Truth, which the left will no doubt use as a means of trying to silence whatever they deem to not be true.
But unlike a lot of folks who have expressed disdain with the move by Biden and his ilk, Boebert is actually taking action to try and put an end to it before it ever begins.
According to The Western Journal, last week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas revealed the existence of what is being called the Disinformation Governance Board, according to a report from The Washington Post.
“We have just established a mis- and disinformation governance board in the Department of Homeland Security to more effectively combat this threat, not only to election security but to our homeland security,” he went on to say.
“On top of that, it was revealed that the board is headed by Nina Jankowicz, who has attacked efforts to spread the revelations contained in Hunter Biden’s laptop,” the report said.
Boebert then went on to publish a tweet saying, “I don’t think people are fully understanding the severity of what a Ministry of Truth organized by DHS truly means. This is Stalin level. This is Mao level. This is the hill to die on.”

This is Stalin level.
This is Mao level.
This is the hill to die on.

Boebert said she had introduced a bill to end the government unit.
“This kind of stuff is terrifying. We in Congress have the power of the purse. It is our duty to shut down this department immediately,” Boebert went on to say Friday, according to a report from Fox News.
“I’m calling on leadership in the Republican Party — Leader [Kevin] McCarthy, Whip [Steve] Scalise and others — to join me in calling for this department to be shut down and defunded,” she stated.
“No tax dollars should go to where Biden can use the power of the federal government to silence truthful stories like Big Tech did with the Hunter Biden story,” Boebert continued, stating the Biden administration is working on making George Orwell’s “1984,” a work of fiction, a reality.
“Democrats took that [book] not as a warning, but as a guide,” she stated.
“This really is a department of propaganda,” Boebert explained. “To say that the federal department has a say in what’s right and what’s wrong. What’s truth and what is not. This is a very dangerous place that we’ve come to.”
The Colorado congresswoman also published a very scathing video that said by deciding to be the arbiter of truth and attempting to impose a bias on the American people, Mayorkas should be impeached.
Secretary Mayorkas is a traitor to the Constitution.
Pass my bill.

“Here’s an idea, instead of trying to pull from the playbook of Stalin and Mao, how about securing our southern border so we don’t have 3 million illegal aliens invading our country? How about building a wall so we don’t have mobile morgues filled with dead migrant bodies?” she then stated.
“Mayorkas, stop acting like a dictator and try acting like you give a darn about the safety and security of your fellow Americans,” Boebert continued in the video.
“Now is when we the people make our voices heard. We will not accept being called domestic terrorists for showing up to school boards,” she remarked. “And we sure as heck won’t be allowing these corrupt bureaucrats to create a ‘Ministry of Truth’ to gaslight the American people.”
Folks, this is truly terrifying and is every bit as serious as Boebert is claiming it is. If this unit is allowed to exist and to function, your freedom of speech is all but gone. Sure, it won’t all disappear at once, but over time, bit by bit, progressives will be able to silence dissent.
And that leads to the death of progress.
