A few weeks ago, the White House canceled one of its proposed measures of online censorship after receiving major backlash. However, this new online task force sounds like it will be the same concept as the first project.
Online censorship has been a tool to hide the truth for the past few years. With a whole section of the government dedicated to seeking and censoring, it will only get worse. Harassment and bullying are already not allowed online, which makes you wonder what their true intentions are.
If this is allowed to begin, sites like mine may soon not be allowed to exist. The Bible is considered hate speech because God is very clear about sin and doesn’t change. It will only be a matter of time until citizens start getting arrested for posting things like the Bible online or openly criticizing the government. This is already happening in many other countries.
This is the time to start a community that will uphold one another in self-sufficiency. The time for relying on the government or big box stores is over. And most importantly, stay prayed up and plugged into the Word of God.
Vice President Kamala Harris announced the launch of a “Task Force to Address Online Harassment and Abuse” Thursday at the White House.
Harris praised the task force in her remarks as a means for societal progress, saying, “No one should have to endure abuse just because they are attempting to participate in society.”
A memo on the task force released by the White House condemned “gendered disinformation” and proclaimed the administration will be “developing programs and policies to address online harassment, abuse, and disinformation campaigns targeting women and LGBTQI+ individuals who are public and political figures, government and civic leaders, activists, and journalists in the United States and globally.”
The memo suggested that online “harassment” has devastating costs for democracy itself by “undermining [people’s] ability to exercise their human rights and participate in democracy, governance, and civic life.”
It went on to claim, “Online abuse and harassment, which aim to preclude women from political decision-making about their own lives and communities, undermine the functioning of democracy.”
The Director of the White House Gender Policy Council and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs will lead the “interagency effort to address online harassment and abuse, specifically focused on technology-facilitated gender-based violence, and to develop concrete recommendations to improve prevention, response, and protection efforts through programs and policies in the United States and globally.”
Although Harris mentioned concern about white supremacy online and privacy protection for abortions in her remarks, neither she nor the memo mentioned far-left Antifa groups doxxing politicians or other dangerous leftist activity online.
