Misinformation is false or inaccurate information, especially that which is deliberately intended to deceive.
Disinformation is a subset of propaganda and is defined as false information that is spread deliberately to deceive people.
Malinformation or malicious information is having or showing a desire to cause harm to someone; given to, marked by, or arising from malice or malicious gossip.
We are beginning a series of articles to expose mis, dis and malinformation.
We are witnesses to a massive number of myths being spread about like candy to little children.
As JFK said,
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth – persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.
Each week we will be posting videos and links to articles that contain mis, dis or mal-information.
If you wish you may share this with your friends, family, on social media and report it to the DHS Disinformation Governance Board.
Let’s get started.
EXAMPLE 1: Here is a white woman stating that overturning Roe v. Wade is about “white supremacy so white people can preserve their majority.” The reason this is misinformation is because 80% of abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods and the most dangerous place for a black or Hispanic is in their mother’s womb. The Guttmacher Institute reports that 59% of abortions are not white. The Guttmacher Institute’s U.S. Abortion Patients infographic shows abortion patients are: 28% are black, 25% Hispanic and 6% Asian/Pacific Islander. For whites it is 39%. If Roe v Wade had not happened it is estimated that the black population of the U.S. would be 31% not 13%.
EXAMPLE 2: In the video below is Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. stating that the “MAGA crowd” is “most extreme” political group in U.S. history. NOTE: This statement also falls under the category of disinformation, which is political propaganda.
In testimony before Congress Biden’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stated unequivocally that abortion is good for the economy. Our question is how does killing future generations of Americans who would become workers and contribute to our economy be good for the economy? It is estimated that over 60,000,000 million unborn Americans have been aborted. If you realize that doing this reduces our population as these unborn were not able to grow up, have families and then children of their own we would not have any labor shortage and our economy would be robust.
EXAMPLE 1: In the below video Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. calls former President Donald J. Trump “The Great MAGA King.” Biden in a speech Wednesday, May 4th, 2022 repeatedly stumbled over the views of pro-Trump Republicans, labeling their agenda as “mega” instead of the MAGA acronym.
EXAMPLE 2: In this video White House press secretary Psaki was asked to clarify Biden’s “ultra MAGA” statement.
EXAMPLE 3: In this video White House press secretary Psaki supports “peaceful to date” abortion protests at SCOTUS justices’ homes. However, 18 US Code §1507 states: “Whoever…with the intent of influencing any judge…in the discharge of his duty, pickets or parades…in or near a building or residence occupied or used by such judge…shall be fined under this title or imprisoned.” Wither a protest outside any judges house may be peaceful it is according to the law illegal and requires fines, arrests and imprisonment. NOTE: Psaki labels what happened on January 6th as an “insurrection.” This statement is mis, dis and malicious information all wrapped into one.
Finally, we have learned that the DOJ and FBI have been monitoring parents and some parents have been placed on a terrorist watch list because they have questioned what their children are learning in public schools, what books are available in public school media centers and questioning why political indoctrination has replaced education and the teaching of reading, writing and arithmetic as the primary goals of school boards, superintendents, principals and teachers. Here is one example of a parent being silenced by a School Board while trying to read from graphic book “Gender Queer” readily available in district’s media centers.
The Department of Homeland Security’s website states that when Americans see something they must say something. It is the duty of every American citizen to report instances of mis, dis and malinformation to the Disinformation Governance Board for appropriate action. Even if this bad information is being passed along by those holding the highest office in the land.
