Seen on social media – Free speech

MORE proof that leftists don’t support free speech.

We have been discussing how Hillary Clinton and other Democratic leaders have turned from private censorship to good old-fashioned state censorship. They have called upon their counterparts in England, France, and Germany to prevent the restoration of free speech protections with censorship laws — laws that would be unconstitutional in the United States.

The British have already responded to such urgent calls and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who recently repeated this call for global censorship at the United Nations to the applause of diplomats and media alike. Now the German left has responded with the the ruling Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) calling for censorship before, to use Clinton’s words, “it is too late” and free speech is barred on Twitter.

According to a report by the business newspaper Handelsblatt, SPD members are concerned that Twitter will now allow too much free speech and curtail Twitter’s massive censorship system. Jens Zimmermann MP declared:

“The Federal Office of Justice must therefore take Twitter under stricter supervision and act quickly and decisively in the event of violations.” The Germans are threatening not just the company but Musk himself if he does not censor viewpoints: If Twitter does not meet the requirements, there are penalties not only against the company, but also against the managers responsible.”

    WTF happened to free speech? Censorship is “hiding things!” Notice it’s ALWAYS the Left that wants to censor things? Further proof the Left is void of civil rights! The Left is why I got rid of the boob tube! I didn’t care for their Lefty slant! Does “If it bleeds, it leads” ring any bells? Shock and awe with censorship seems to be their calling card! Why does the news we get always slant to the Left? Even the Fox slants to the Left! The fair and balance was just shtick! Now I get Bongino and Levin and the likes for my info. Rush and Paul Harvey were oldies but goodies! Miss them deeply.

      Doesn’t China block internet they don’t like? Maybe these people need to institute that kind of censorship. Then see how long their constituents keep them in power…
