In his latest gaffe-filled appearance before cameras, Joe Biden urged big tech companies to act against anyone who spreads COVID-19 “misinformation or disinformation” and demanded that they work with his administration to do this.
Before calling on big tech to enforce the White House’s strict ideological conformity on COVID-19, Biden blamed the state of the pandemic on vaccine resisters.
“Unfortunately while our military’s stepping up, as they always do, there are others sitting on the sidelines, and worse standing in the way,” said Biden.
“If you haven’t gotten vaccinated, do it. Personal choice impacts us all.”
He then transitioned to his “special appeal” to big tech companies and legacy media outlets: Repeat what I say, and stop those who disagree.
“I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets,” Biden began. “Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows, it has to stop.”
After belittling the unvaccinated and devaluing personal choice, Biden then declared that only following his orders would end the COVID-19 pandemic.
“COVID-19 is one of the most formidable enemies our country has ever faced, and we’ve got to work together, not against each other,” he concluded.

Biden did not acknowledge that tech companies have long cooperated with the federal government on COVID-19.
Twitter recently announced a fact checking partnership to enforce ideological rigidity, YouTube will ban users who reference COVID-19 facts not approved by the World Health Organization, and we now know that Facebook, now Meta, personally reached out to Anthony Fauci to offer help in advancing the White House’s narratives.
More recently, tech companies have offered Biden’s White House the additional favor of banning one of the Democrats’ most vocal political opponents, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Greene’s personal Twitter account and Facebook page were both purged, leading to an exodus to alt tech platforms including Gab and Telegram.
Apparently none of this is enough for Joe Biden.
