This Part 2 of a multi-part “deep dive” investigation into DHS domestic censorship.
DHS used US taxpayer dollars to create a cartoon encouraging young people to report their family members to tech platforms for posting 'disinformation' about Covid-19.
DHS designates US citizen social media opinions about Covid-19 as a 'cyber attack on critical infrastructure' because 'disinformation' is a 'digital threat' to that 'undermines confidence' in public health.
This means any citizen grievances against US government policies can now be censored by DHS, simply by treating disagreement as a digital threat.
This is Part 1 of a multi-part “deep dive” investigation.
A little-known DHS agency assigned to protect cybersecurity has covertly switched its mission to cybercensorship.
DHS pulled off a 'foreign-to-domestic switcheroo' by working with tech companies first to censor 'foreign, inauthentic, coordinated' social media activity (i.e., 'Russian interference') and then switching in summer 2020 to censoring 'domestic, authentic, organic social media activity (i.e., all American citizens accused of spreading 'misinformation').
DHS invokes a 'whole of society' approach to censorship, meaning every institution in society is pressured to censor the same topics.
New documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show staffers from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) working hand-in-hand with Google, Twitter, and Facebook/Meta to shut down social media posts challenging Covid orthodoxy.
The US government asked Google to run recruitment ads for the role of “Infodemic Manager Unicorns”, whose job is to censor the “pandemic of misinformation” on the Internet.
'Unicorns' would scan use artificial intelligence software to scan social media for speech patterns expressing dissent with government Covid policies and mandates .
CDC directly asked Google to manually alter its search engines results so that CDC pages would “come up higher in [search] results”.
