A collection of hate-Trump, leftist amateurs has been deciding what was “disinformation” on social media, and targeting conservatives and Trump supporters with false charges of extremism.
Matt Taibbi’s latest on the Twitter Files also reports that the obsession with disinformation began when President Barack Hussein Obama created a little-known, little-publicized agency called the Global Engagement Center (GEC) to tackle the “messaging” of terrorists.
Such was the center’s activity that the putative threat of “disinformation” became something akin to the Red Scare of the 1950s, Taibbi wrote on Racket News. Difference is, the Red Scare wasn’t just a “scare.” It was a very real concern that flowed from the very real threat of international communism and the penetration of the United States government by Soviet agents.
“Disinformation” from conservatives on Twitter threatens no one.
