Human Events Daily host Jack Posobiec slammed failed Ministry of Truth czar Nina Jankowicz during the latest instalment of his show, after she suggested that the Uvalde shooter, Salvadaor Ramos, may have been radicalized by online content and that an online disinformation board could have helped prevent the massacre that took place at Robb Elementary on May 24.
Jankowicz made the comments last week during an interview on an NPR podcast, where she said "I think another example that’s important, that’s also within the Department’s portfolio, especially given the events of the past few weeks, is that disinformation plays a role in radicalizing people to violence."
She continued: "You know, we’re seeing continued mass shootings here in the United States, and in many of those cases, violent extremism is begotten by things people see on the Internet."
"So, that’s the sort of thing that we would be looking to address," Jankowicz concluded.
Posobiec slammed the failed disinformation expert over her suggestion, and said that Jankowicz should go to the authorities if there is information that she knows about Uvalde that the public doesn't.
Official reports thus far do not reveal that Ramos was radicalized, or that his rampage could have been stopped by a disinformation board headed by someone who herself cannot discern fact from disinformation.
"Nina Jankowicz is back and she says that if we had had the federal ministry of truth, this Disinformation Governance Board, that they could've stopped the Uvalde killer, the Uvalde shooting. I mean what this is is basically an opportunity for her to just kind of find a way to get headlines, get attention, say something's going to be so completely insane that it gets everyone talking about her. It's a time-honored tradition by hacks and by people like Nina Jankowicz.
"What she's saying is... 'disinformation plays a role in radicalizing people into violence,' a quote up here from the media research council. We're seeing continued mass shootings here in the United States and in many of those cases... violent extremism is begotten by things seen on the internet. that's the sort of thing we'd be looking to address.
"Now, do we have actual information from the Uvalde shooter about targeting this school for reasons of violent extremism or disinformation? Because, Nina if you know that, please share that with the authorities immediately, or perhaps not the authorities in Uvalde, because they don't seem to be giving anyone the truth...
"You gotta go share that with some real authorities! With the Texas governor's office, the Texas AG office, and AG Paxton, who's actually conducting a real investigation into this thing," Posobiec concluded.
It's known that Jankowicz is no fan of Posobiec. Last week, she blamed Posobiec for triggering the beginning of the downfall of the entire Disinformation Governance Board.
Nina Jankowicz told host Terry Gross: "So I haven't done a full analysis of what happened. I do one day want to pull all of the tweets and kind of look to see if there's any networks that are visible there. But what I think happened is there's a very kind of tried and true method through which messages travel in the conservative media ecosystem."
"And actually, a group called Advance Democracy Inc., did a report on this where they said, essentially, a tweet from Jack Posobiec, the right-wing influencer, influenced the rest of the conversation about me," she continued.
Jankowicz said that Posobiec was "the first kind of large, high follower persona to pick this up," and that the story then went to Fox News, where "throughout a week, 70 percent of their one-hour segments had information on me within the segment, which is just a staggering figure, considering that I was a relatively low-level official in the US government."
"And then from there, we saw, again, this coordinated messaging campaign on the floor of Congress, where many of the same tweets that Jack Posobiec had highlighted were then blown up onto poster board and decontextualized, during congressional hearings," she said.
