Last week, Gina McCarthy, the Biden administration‘s National Climate Adviser, an utterly worthless job being done by an utterly worthless bureaucrat, told Axios’s political journalist Alexi McCammond that Big Tech tyrants should censor people who oppose President Joe Biden‘s climate change agenda. Because when you can’t convince a nation to accept your manufactured narratives, you need to silence the opposition. That’s how democracy works, according to the loony Left.
“And so the challenges now that we’re moving from denial to actually just trying to, to disengage the public from understanding the values of solar energy, the values of wind energy, the benefits of clean energy. We have to get tighter, we have to get better at communicating,” McCarthy said during an appearance at Axios’s “The Infodemic Age” event on Thursday.
So, Joe Biden is out there blaming everyone under the sun for high gas prices, which in turn increase the price of everything that we buy because it all has to be delivered in some form using gasoline, even though he actually told us that he was going to do things that would increase energy costs when he was running for office. And now he has this climate nut, asking as an official government policy, social media companies to censor anyone who disagrees with a government gravy train cottage industry known as climate change.
And now that he has implemented what he told us he was going to do, he’s blaming everyone but himself for high gas prices.
This administration doesn’t want people to counter his lies, so McCarthy is asking on behalf of the federal government for censorship. What a total disgrace.
This is why the Biden administration created the Orwellian Disinformation Governance Board so that the Biden government could officially silence Americans who disagree with them and call them liars rather than utilize debate to find the truth. Progressives know when they are not pushing truth, so they force everyone else to accept whatever they call the truth through intimidation. Thank God that monstrosity failed. But that doesn’t mean the regime is giving up on forcing their views down our throats.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents that were obtained by Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) read, “DHS had plans for its Disinformation Governance Board (DGB) to partner with Big Tech companies to monitor domestic speech about topics including election security and COVID-19.” That is using private corporations as agents of the government.
“If you have questions about COVID, if you have questions about COVID masks, if you have questions about the COVID vaccine, this administration wanted you to be monitored. This Disinformation Board was set up to go after you,” Hawley said. “That’s what the documents say.”
McCarthy also said that their pals in Big Tech have to “stop allowing” individuals to spread “misinformation” about Biden’s climate agenda.
“And frankly, the tech companies have to stop allowing specific individuals over and over again to spread disinformation. That’s what the fossil fuel companies pay for,” McCarthy said.
Wasn’t Gina McCarthy, as Obama’s head of the EPA, one of the government folks who gave Flint Michigan’s tax payer owned clean water supply to Nestle and then replaced it with polluted lead water from the Flint River? The crisis they created up there has probably cost more than the entire “green” budget by now. And now she wants to censor us about climate change. How do these incompetents keep being recycled?
What about stopping the government from spreading disinformation? We have a First Amendment for that. The government spread disinformation about ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine that could have saved most of the lives lost to COVID-19. I used ivermectin and it saved my life after the second dose. Had I listened to the Biden administration, the Delta variant might have killed me.
“That’s what folks who make money out of fossil fuels and don’t make money and don’t care about saving consumers’ cost. That’s what they do. We have to be smarter than that, and we need the tech companies to really jump in,” she said.

When they use the word “denial” they are exploiting the word used about the Holocaust. The term Holocaust denier was something you would accuse a person of being when they said that the Nazi Holocaust didn’t happen. These despicable left-wingers have been calling people Climate Deniers off the backs of Jewish victims of the Holocaust for years now, making it appear that you are as bad as a Holocaust denier if you disagree with their climate change narratives, whether through science or not. And no one calls them out on it.
McCarthy also made the claim that fossil fuel companies pose “a significant threat to public health.”
“Fossil fuels have actually created significant health challenges on our country, not just climate change, but we’re talking about pollution that’s impacting people’s lives,” she argued.
The woman who helped give Flint residents polluted water now wants to talk about health impacts of climate change? Give me a big, fat break.
How about the notion that we, the American people, get to decide if we like driving our vehicle’s to get to work, heating our homes in the winter, and buying groceries without having to fill out a financial aid form? These watermelons are trying to control our lives the way they did during the COVID pandemic and we should not allow them to get away with it. I call climate change activists, and that’s what McCarthy is, watermelons, because they are green on the outside and controlling Marxist red on the inside.
She says all of this while gas prices have reached an average of $5 per gallon.
The bottom line is the progressives believe they have a loophole in the First Amendment’s right to free speech by getting private corporations to do their dirty work for them because the First Amendment only pertains to the government. However, the argument can be made that when an official from the president’s administration throws out a public request for censorship on something the regime does not want any opposition, and then a private corporation complies with the government’s request, veiled or direct, that private corporation is acting as an agent of the government and therefore the First Amendment applies. A smart lawyer would make that argument in court and probably win. In Marsh v Alabama, the US Supreme Court ruled that a town that was owned by a private corporation could not use a state trespassing statute to block religious materials from being distributed on the town’s sidewalks because the Court determined that the town was a de facto government. I see no reason why the government using corporations to violate the First Amendment’s free speech clause wouldn’t consider the digital town square a de facto government.
