Joe Biden's new "disinformation czar" dismissed concerns regarding Critical Race Theory in schools as "disinformation for profit" - despite parents across the nation being concerned regarding the teaching of the philosophy in their children's classrooms.

Nina Jankowicz, a disinformation specialist who has worked throughout Eastern Europe, was hired on April 27 to lead a Homeland Security Department working group meant to help its different agencies in dealing with disinformation on topics varying from migration to plots from Russia and Iran.

Yet her appointment has angered Republicans.

The Republican National Committee called the committee she heads "Ministry of Truth" in a nod to George Orwell's novel "1984," and raised worries that the group will deem as disinformation "any speech we don't like."

Other critics have seized upon her past remarks - stressing that she described Hunter Biden's laptop as "the laptop from hell" and repeated the opinion of national security specialists at the time that the laptop was part of a Russian influence operation.

It has since been confirmed by many news organizations as authentic.

On Wednesday, a clip from a November 2021 address to The City Club of Cleveland was circulated online, which showed Jankowicz downplaying concerns regarding CRT.

One man in the audience announced that Republicans were using Critical Race Theory to divide people, and questioned her: "How do you get people to understand and go beyond the headlines?"

Critical race theory, or CRT, is a legal framework taught primarily in law schools that insists that racism is embedded in American political and social institutions.

Conservatives have taken to using the phrase as a way to describe lessons on racism and "equity" across all grade levels - and have denounced the theory for arguing that the U.S. is built on racial animus, with skin color determining the social, economic and political differences between people.

Advocates, though, state its' teaching is necessary to underline how deeply racism pervades society. Critics explain it is divisive and paints everyone as a victim or oppressor.

Loudoun Superintendent Scott Ziegler maintains that CRT is not being taught to students, and that parents and other activists are seizing upon the district's equity training for staff and insisting it is being taught in classrooms.

Jankowicz, for her part, announced at City Club of Cleveland event: "You're absolutely right that Critical Race Theory has become one of those hot-button issues that the Republicans and other disinformers, who are engaged in disinformation for profit, frankly - there are plenty of media outlets that are making money off this too - have seized on."

"And I live in Virginia, and in Loudoun County that's one of the areas where people have really honed in on this topic."

"But it's no different than any of the other hot-button issues that have allowed disinformation to flourish."

"It's weaponizing people's emotions."
