The Intercept: Leaked Documents Outline DHS’s Plan To Censor Disinformation

I’m the “fascist” though.

Says the people who *checks notes* have the federal government, the big banks and social media platforms all conspiring behind the scenes to censor the internet.

The Intercept:

“The Department of Homeland Security is quietly broadening its efforts to curb speech it considers dangerous, an investigation by The Intercept has found. Years of internal DHS memos, emails, and documents — obtained via leaks and an ongoing lawsuit, as well as public documents — illustrate an expansive effort by the agency to influence tech platforms.

The work, much of which remains unknown to the American public, came into clearer view earlier this year when DHS announced a new “Disinformation Governance Board”: a panel designed to police misinformation (false information spread unintentionally), disinformation (false information spread intentionally), and malinformation (factual information shared, typically out of context, with harmful intent) that allegedly threatens U.S. interests. While the board was widely ridiculed, immediately scaled back, and then shut down within a few months, other initiatives are underway as DHS pivots to monitoring social media now that its original mandate — the war on terror — has been wound down.

Behind closed doors, and through pressure on private platforms, the U.S. government has used its power to try to shape online discourse. According to meeting minutes and other records appended to a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who is also running for Senate, discussions have ranged from the scale and scope of government intervention in online discourse to the mechanics of streamlining takedown requests for false or intentionally misleading information.

“Platforms have got to get comfortable with gov’t. It’s really interesting how hesitant they remain,” Microsoft executive Matt Masterson, a former DHS official, texted Jen Easterly, a DHS director, in February. …”

BTW, Eric Schmitt is running for U.S. Senate in Missouri.

We know all this largely because it has been exposed by his lawsuit.


  1. Always thought DHS was a bad idea. Free speech is the alternative to violence. Elections without free speech are meaningless.

  2. If, after reading and absorbing this, there are still any of these autistic liberTARDians remaining spouting the “but they’re private companies” line, then all I can say is that I don’t know what to tell them or do for them.

    Note: Eric Schmitt is a St. Louisan.

  3. “Fascism” today is when you oppose the Empire. The more you oppose it, the more fascist you are. Thus, Glenn Greenwald is at least a crypto-fascist-white-supremacist, if not outright a Jewish Nazi-Fascist! The only truth that matters is the imperial truth. Sadly this imperial truth is not about aryan Gigachad conquering the galaxy for humanity, but a very chosen people who are just that bit more equal than others.

    Now seriously: of all the toxic things that came out of the post 9/11 world the imperial DHS and the so called intelligence community industrial complex is among the worst. It’s at the core of how this class of people gradually transformed almost all western countries into a soft totalitarianism Stasi-state of plotting globalists, unelected NGO-networks and cosmopolitan technocrats who are interchangeable in whichever country they may reside. At least they can’t lock up American anons for “hate” just yet. Unlike in Airstrip One or best Goymany.
    A third of my family lived through communism. You have no idea just HOW much I hate any political “police” under control of apparatschiks, ideological politicians and grabblers. In fact: it’s even worse now, because at least the old communists were open about who was in charge, unlike this system which gaslights you with its clown government and that you live freer than ever, goy, YOU are just the threat to glorious democracy. And they didn’t try to systematically replace you in your ancestral homelands. Compared to the so called West today the post-Stalin years of the Soviet Union seem almost reactionary…

    When I think of the USA today I don’t thing of George Kennan, but of the painting in Jeffrey Epsteins appartment of Bill Clinton in a dress and red pumps, or of little Dubya playing with paper flyers and toy twin-towers. I think, almost all of us may be well beyond Weimar at this point. And there’s no old wise man or savior, at least of this earth, coming to save us. There is only us.

  4. “Platforms have got to get comfortable with gov’t. It’s really interesting how hesitant they remain,” Microsoft executive Matt Masterson, A FORMER DHS OFFICIAL, texted Jen Easterly, a DHS director, in February. …”

    Uh – who elected these revolving-door technocrat/bureaucrat tyrant scum again? Who exactly gave them the right & the power to decide what can & cannot be said online & everywhere else?
