Kamala Harris picked to lead task force to address online harassment and abuse

Vice President Kamala Harris is terrible at her job. Perhaps her newest endeavor was chosen because it’s foolproof.

Harris met with a joint White House task force Thursday aimed at stopping online abuse and harassment targeted at women, the Washington Examiner reported. The meeting included guests, cabinet members, and White House aides.

The vice president announced the formation of the “Task Force to Address Online Harassment and Abuse” from the White House, Fox News reported. “No one should have to endure abuse just because they are attempting to participate in society,” Harris said.

The task force is specifically focused on “gendered disinformation.” A memo about its mission promised new “programs and policies to address online harassment, abuse, and disinformation campaigns targeting women and LGBTQI+ individuals who are public and political figures, government and civic leaders, activists, and journalists in the United States and globally.”

The task force ostensibly will root out behavior online “undermining [people’s] ability to exercise their human rights and participate in democracy, governance, and civic life.” However, it seemed to focus on right-leaning 0rganizations and did not mention groups like Antifa that use bully tactics to do just that.

Moreover, critics saw grave concerns with their stated purpose and strategy of aligning the government with Big Tech. Others pointed out that this kind of surveillance smacked of the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board, which has been temporarily suspended.

“There is a new ‘disinformation’ task force,” Young Americans for Liberty tweeted. “This one will be led by @KamalaHarris. The biggest purveyor of ‘disinformation’ is the U.S. government. They certainly aren’t qualified to police it.”

This new job seems to be something Harris can’t mess up. However, Americans are already wary of the government that wants to police speech and shut down dissent — so this could be another thing that blows up in the vice president’s face.
