Obama Wants to “Digital Fingerprint” Your Internet Usage

According to the political left, there is a lot of “misinformation” out there. Thankfully, former President Barack Obama has a plan to dispense with most of it: digital fingerprinting.

Obama stated this solution during an interview with his former White House senior advisor, now CNN host David Axelrod.

Axelrod and Obama were discussing just how much “misinformation, disinformation, and deepfakes” existed on the internet and that Obama seemed to be a target of much of it.

According to Obama, he was the “first digital president” or “probably the most recorded, filmed, photographed human in history.” And naturally, that gave those against him a lot of ammunition to play with, turning it into digitally manipulated images and videos to attack him.

To be sure, there is a lot of Obama footage out there. And quite a bit of it isn’t necessarily a good look for him or the Democratic Party. And yes, some are most likely manipulated to look that way.

I’ve seen similarly “manipulated” images of former President Donald Trump.

So what does Obama suggest?

We need to “digital fingerprint” the truth or real images. That way, anyone looking at a picture without this fingerprint will know it’s a fake.

Of course, the question would be, who gets to put that fingerprint on what? Who gets to decide what is truth and what isn’t?

And therein lies the problem…

As usual, we have a progressive leftist saying that “we,” presumably the federal government, needs to come up with a way to label things as “truth” or untruths. Undoubtedly, we can bet that it will only be a truth if it works to better their agenda and image.

Hunter Biden laptop scandal? Non-truth. Trump had classified documents in his home? Truth. Biden having similar documents in his garage? Non-truth. Biden took bribes for political and international favors? Non-Truth. Trump incited the January 6 Capitol incursion. Truth.

We could go on and on.

Who else thinks this is a terrible idea?
