DNC, Biden allies want phone carriers to vet anti-vax messages: report

The Democratic National Committee and other White House allies want wireless carriers to scrutinize phone and social media messages for alleged misinformation about the Biden administration’s push to vaccinate more Americans against the coronavirus, Politico reported Monday.

According to the outlet, the White House is pushing back harder against critics of its messaging after failing to reach the goal of having 70 percent of American adults receive at least one vaccine dose by July 4.

Part of that effort, Politico reported, is “planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS [Short Message Service] carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines”.

One SMS message cited by the outlet, sent by Turning Point USA and co-founder Charlie Kirk, read: “Biden is sending goons DOOR-TO-DOOR to make you take a Covid-19 vaccine. Sign the petition to: No medical raids in America.”

“We are steadfastly committed to keeping politics out of the effort to get every American vaccinated so that we can save lives and help our economy further recover,” White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz told the outlet. “When we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country’s public health and will not shy away from calling that out.” The latest flashpoint in the messaging battle is President Biden’s announcement last week that “we need to go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door-to-door — literally knocking on doors — to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus.”

So the government is telling carriers to monitor messages and wants government agents to send pro-vax messages. Right.

Would appear that way.

So would they not send a text that does not support the regime’s position?

When text messages have government “fact checking” content added, or you cannot get it to send, I think that is going to backfire on these fascists in a big way.

Believe it or not, we at FR are way better switched on mentally than most. As incredulous as it seems, most people walk around and truly think text messaging is private.
They shatter that illusion and it’s a bad thing for them.
Worse than they imagine.

Love how the most ignorant people on the scene have defined truth as defined by their agenda; therefore anything to the contrary is ‘misinformation’. [eyeroll]

I know! Let’s let the stupid totalitarians be in charge!
