He is one of the many “population control” ecofash maniacs who have infiltrated the U.S. government. He and his networks have a long history with #TantonNetwork groups — who are proponents of “passive eugenics” to depopulate the planet — such as FAIR
They have entered the U.S. government specifically to enact a goal of soft or passive eugenics with depopulation as a goal. They focus on immigration because they think Latin Americans breed too much and have an inferior culture (just the one), and to bring around liberals.

This was influential ecofascist John Tanton’s core belief and why he rebranded from “population control” to immigration control to create FAIR, CIS, Numbers USA etc. who are now all within the Trump admin, mostly DHS. He was wrong and they’re wrong now. This is eugenics

That declaration was not by a group of scientists. It was a lie. It was a sham. It was disinformation.
This was the brainchild of an economic think tank headed by an “Austrian school” adherent and it has a history of climate change denial. Plus, the list is bullshit! Shame on you for normalizing this hideous disinformation during a pandemic @abc

We all sort of figured this would happen from the moment @SenRonJohnson spent July 4 2018 in Moscow, but then tried to cover it up and lied about it until he got busted

Remember when Ted Cruz used Cambridge Analytica's services to get elected? And now that we know that their whole model was basically disinformation and dirt, it sort of puts this little tantrum into perspective
Also, the fact that he doesn't seem to be able to grasp the difference between censorship and moderation is very disturbing. It's an extremely basic difference that is very easy to understand.
