Skip to comments.Biden’s New ‘Global Media’ Guy Richard Stengel Supports Limiting Free Speech, Bragged About Being a Propagandist

Richard Stengel, new ‘team lead‘ for Joe Biden’s agency for global media, wrote an op-ed last year arguing for free speech restrictions.
Stengel, a former MSNBC political analyst until he was named to Biden’s transition team, argued that the First Amendment needed redefining and that “hate speech” should be a crime.
“All speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails,” he wrote. “I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.”
‘Speech that incites hate’ was defined in Stengel’s op-ed by two examples – Burning the Quran, and “false narratives” spread by Russia during the 2016 election.
The argument that Russian disinformation is an example of speech needing to be curbed is a pretty remarkable argument considering we have since learned that the worst of Russian disinformation was spread by the American media and the Democrat party.
It gets worse.
A video of Stengel went viral in 2018 after he claimed he is “not against” propaganda, felt it is necessary for government, and joked that he once served as the State Department’s “chief propagandist.”

Either he intentionally lied and perjured himself or he is in fact not in operational control of the social media platform and it is being controlled and directed by another entity.

“I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.”
Truth is hate to people who hate truth.
Richard Stengel is a sissy boi.
He paints his toes red and drive’s a Smart car.

islam is a totalitarian death cult founded by a child rapist.
and the american left (socialists like Biden) are islam’s co-conspirators in the Destruction of Western Civilization.
Richard Stengel is a tranny soy boy. I heard it on NPR.
Leftists give themselves away by their very choice of words.
To wit, the mantra of The Left when it comes to covid is not "STOP the spread" or "cure the disease", it's "SLOW the spread". They WANT to drag it out.
Similarly, they don't advocate for the "integrity" of our elections, they pontificate that President Trump is "delegitimizing" the "election process".
It may SOUND like two ways of saying the same thing but it is not. The Left doesn't give a flying fig about the integrity of our elections. They see elections as warfare by other means and they are not shy about waging it.
Islam is expressly in terms of its founding a religion of the spirit of antichrist, and quite possibly THE religion of Antichrist.

He was also the editor of Time when that trashy mag came out with the Haditha War Crimes allegations. Mark Zaid the lawyer involved with the Ciaramella and Vindman “phone call scandal” against Trump [see Compass Rose] was also involved with the Haditha marines’ story.

Richard Stengel, a former high-level U.S. government official, head of the office for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs at the State Department from 2013 to 2016, former editor of Time Magazine and a regular pundit on MSNBC, said in April of 2018 at a Council on Foreign Relations forum about “fake news,” that he “supports the use of propaganda on American citizens.” He then continued; “Basically, every country creates their own narrative story and, you know, my old job at the State Department was what people used to joke as the ‘chief propagandist’ job.” Keep in mind, that in 2013,...

Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Richard Stengel gave a peculiar apology to outraged Twitter users on Sunday after he tweeted #UnitedForGaza to his 15,000 followers. In a tweet directed to the State Department, Mr. Stengel said, “Critical for a full, credible and unimpeded intl investigation of crash. Urge Russia to honor it’s [sic] commitment,” Twitchy first reported. After receiving swift backlash, the tweet was deleted, and Mr. Stengel sent out a terse explanation. “Earlier tweet with wrong hashtag was a mistake. My bad,” he said. (Snip) Twitter users weren’t buying Mr. Stengel’s apology.
Totalitarians don’t believe in truth and falsehood or right and wrong, so they tell whatever lie serves their ends—Marxists call this praxis, Hitler followed Nietzsche in calling it the will to power, today’s left follows a blend of the two.
This guy is so red that even Putin is jealous of him and Xi wants him as his propaganda and censorship chief.
George Orwell wrote a lot about this guy in “1984” and he was the “super-pig” in “Animal Farm”.
A pure leftist ideological psychopath. Good going Joe. Your true colors (and they ain’t Red, White and Blue, just RED) are beginning to show.
