“Biden’s Big Brother government continues to slowly erode our civil liberties. Oklahomans understand exactly what a Disinformation Board is designed to do: eliminate content in the public they do not like,” said Lankford. “DHS wants us to entrust the organization that cannot control our border with the ability to control our speech. No tax dollars should fund this ridiculous and flagrant attempt to undermine our First Amendment. This is Oklahoma, not Oceania from 1984. DHS owes the American people an answer on who orchestrated this overstep and why.”
“The Biden administration wants a government agency dedicated to cracking down on what its subjects can say, an idea popular with Orwellian governments everywhere. This board is unconstitutional and un-American—my bill puts a stop to it,” said Cotton.
Joining Lankford and Cotton in introducing the bill were Senators John Boozman (R-AR), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Rick Scott (R-FL), Jim Risch (R-ID), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Mike Lee (R-UT), Thom Tillis (R-NC), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Braun (R-IN), John Kennedy (R-LA), Todd Young (R-IN), and Kevin Cramer (R-ND).
