The significance here is that Democrats are obsessed with baking in censorship, what they call “disinformation”, into any online national security venture. And they need the right sorts of people for that.
Stewart has the right sorts of politics and the Google connections. So she’s a perfect pick for Biden and a horrifying one for free speech.
President Joe Biden’s incoming cyber defense deputy has claimed that “systemic racism” is one of the greatest threats to U.S. cybersecurity.
Camille Stewart, a former Google strategist whom Biden reportedly tapped for White House deputy national cyber director, has argued that “our #NatSec apparatus must be a part of dismantling systemic racism,” and “pursuing anti-racist and anti-hate policy outcomes” should be a chief national security focus for the administration.
This is the ugly language of critical race theory.
Stewart, who served as policy adviser for the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security, has criticized the United States as an intrinsically racist society in her writing and on social media.
She claimed that the U.S. economy “lost $16 trillion b/c of Racism against Black Americans,” and warned in 2020 that “SYSTEMIC RACISM WILL RUIN THIS DEMOCRACY,” arguing that systemic racism was a part of “every institution not just the criminal justice system.”
“[Solutions] to cybersecurity challenges will never reach their full potential until systemic racism is addressed and diverse voices are reflected among our ranks at all levels,” Stewart wrote in a 2020 column for the Council on Foreign Relations titled “Systemic Racism Is a National Security Threat.”
She added that “communities of color are disproportionately affected by cyberattacks that target critical infrastructure.”
In a 2020 column for the Hill, Stewart said the Biden administration’s efforts to combat systemic racism “must be woven into leadership priorities, processes, structures, and domestic and international strategy.”
On the one hand we’re under sustained cyberwarfare from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and a whole bunch of other players who decided to go on the offensive and rob us blind while we play defense.
Americans are being hacked, blackmailed, and our intellectual property is being stolen by our enemies.
Meanwhile, instead of fighting them, Biden keeps putting people into place who want to use foreign attacks to fight other Americans.
The Biden White House announcement makes no mention of the threats we’re dealing with, but describes Stewart as an “inspiration”.
“In the field of cybersecurity, Camille is regarded as not only an expert but also as an inspiration, especially to women and underrepresented minorities. She will be an asset to our team as we seek to strengthen the cybersecurity of our Nation, its citizens, and its technology.”
This is why we’re losing the cyberwar.
