Biden Disinfo Governance Board Leader Jankowicz Endorsed UK Speech Crackdown

Nina Jankowicz is a leader of Disinformation Governance Board and has a track record of ridiculing the idea of free speech while speaking to political leaders.

JankowiczAccording to transcripts of meetings in the UK, the Draft Online Safety Bill was discussed. Jankowicz addressed the Joint Committee on UK’s Draft Online Safety Bill on September 20, 2021. Jankowicz suggested that it would be a “useful starting point” for Ofcom (the UK Office of Communications) to punish Big Tech platforms with “fines” for not censoring users enough. She also mocked the very idea of alternate platforms protecting online speech as mere “freedom of expression and fairy dust.” The chair of the hearing, UK Member of Parliament Damian CollinsJankowicz was also supported by. He suggested that in the context of these regulations: “freedom of speech would appear to be less about speaking truth to power than one person’s perceived right to abuse another.” 

Jankowicz absurdly argued that being a woman online is “an inherently dangerous act.” She added: ”You are opening yourself up to criticism from every angle. I would like to say that this online misogyny is being hastened by social media.”  She even went so far as blaming foreign regimes for encouraging people to criticize women in order to subvert “democracy”:

“There is also a national security concern. We do a detailed investigation on the three journalists that were targeted by Russia China, Iran and China. They recognize this widespread misogyny and attempt to subvert our democracy. It is not a matter of democracy; it is also a national security problem that should concern all members of government. It’s not about hurt feelings. It really affects the way our countries operate.”


Jankowicz also appeared to praise the idea of shadowbanning or deboosting, phrasing it as “demoting content” and phrasing the tactic as “You can shout into the black void, but you don’t get a huge audience to do that.”

Jankowicz also condemned “dogpile” tactics, apparently referring to when a user criticizes a liberal for something, causing other users to follow suit, as if that were not the nature of social media itself. “One individual will post a piece of content, whether on Twitter or on Facebook, with a large following, and in that original piece of content there is nothing that violates terms of service, but that is the dog whistle that initiatives [sic] the dogpile and then all the vitrioling content comes from there,” she said. “That initial piece of content did not trip the tripwire, but these folks who are initiating the dogpile we believe should and can be punished, because they are unleashing what is much worse.”
