    Tech billionaire Elon Musk on Thursday said that the Biden administration's reported intent to create a so-called "misinformation governance board" was "discomforting."

    "The government is creating a misinformation governance board," comedian and conservative host Steven Crowder tweeted Thursday. "Who else did something like that? Oh I remember, the Nazi's. And there's some data showing some interesting things going on post-[Elon Musk]'s Twitter takeover!"

    "Discomforting," Musk directly replied to the tweet.

    About an hour later, Musk replied to another tweet, similarly remarking on the principles of freedom of speech.

    "Mr. [Elon Musk] has invited the world to abuse him verbally on his own property. That's my definition of a generous and gracious host," a tweet said.

    "Freedom of speech means freedom of speech," the Tesla founder responded.

    President Joe Biden made headlines Wednesday, when reports surfaced about the Department of Homeland Security's reportedly incoming "disinformation governance board," allegedly aiming to counter what the government determines to be false information relating to national security, The Daily Wire reported.

    Politico reported Wednesday that the agency is creating the board "to coordinate countering misinformation related to homeland security, focused specifically on irregular migration and Russia."

    The Daily Wire noted Nina Jankowicz will reportedly head the new DHS board as executive director, adding that Jankowicz "was one of the prominent liberals who appeared to believe" Hunter Biden's "laptop from hell" was "Russian disinformation."

    However, even the mainstream media concedes that contents of that laptop are real.

    Issues concerning free speech have come into focus over the past couple weeks, as Musk moved to strike a deal to buy Twitter, a platform known for having a Left-wing bias.

    On Monday, Twitter announced an agreement to be acquired by Musk for $54.20 per share in a deal valued at $44 billion, The Daily Wire reported.

    The SpaceX CEO issued a statement about the agreement, again emphasizing his commitment to free speech principles.

    "Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated," the 50-year-old said. "I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential - I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it."

    Many conservatives have already championed Musk acquiring Twitter as a win for free speech. Outkick founder Clay Travis, for example, tweeted, "Elon Musk has officially purchased Twitter for $54.20 a share. Absolutely monstrous win for free speech on social media. Feast on the left wing blue check tears as they realize their rigged marketplace of ideas is dying. Glorious."
