White House’s New Task Force Monitors Online Activity to ‘Protect’ The LBGTQ

Something you may have missed during the clangor caused by the left recently; The White House passed a Memorandum on the Establishment of the White House Task Force to address anything they deem as bullying online. It wasn’t lost on me that the Biden administration used Kamala Harris to head the task force—She does so little, we almost all forget that she even exists.

This new task force isn’t the Disinfo board Biden had hoped for but based on the verbiage, it is its ugly cousin. Take a look at some of the verbiage:

“Technology platforms and social media can be vital tools for expression, civic participation, and building a sense of community.  But the scale, reach, and amplification effects of technology platforms have also exacerbated gender-based violence, particularly through online harassment and abuse.  Online harassment and abuse include a broad array of harmful and sometimes illegal behaviors that are perpetrated through the use of technology.  Women, adolescent girls, and LGBTQI+ individuals, who may be additionally targeted because of their race, ethnicity, religion, and other factors, can experience more severe harms from online harassment and abuse.  Online harassment and abuse take many forms, including the non-consensual distribution of intimate digital images; cyberstalking; sextortion; doxing; malicious deep fakes; gendered disinformation; rape and death threats; the online recruitment and exploitation of victims of sex trafficking; and various forms of technology-facilitated intimate partner abuse. ”

Some of the content sounds great, such as sharing someone’s private image without their knowledge and sex trafficking but it’s almost buried in the list of items the task force will have to handle. During a tiny gathering, Kamala Harris defended her new task force saying:

Harris: “Nearly one in four Asian Americans report being called an offensive name, usually motivated by racism — being called an offensive name online.  And Black people who have been harassed online in our country are three times more likely to be targeted, again, because of their race.”
