CENSORED: Facebook deletes a Gatestone author’s page!

Dear Readers,

On Tuesday, the European Union (EU) announced a new online speech code to be enforced by four major tech companies, including Facebook and YouTube.

On Wednesday, Facebook deleted the account of Ingrid Carlqvist, Gatestone’s Swedish expert.

It’s no coincidence.

Ingrid had posted our latest video to her Facebook feed — called “Sweden’s Migrant Rape Epidemic.” As you can see, Ingrid calmly lays out the facts and statistics, all of which are meticulously researched.

    The silencing of political dissent will keep us safe.
    The Muslums will still rape and kill us with impunity, but at least we will be safe from dissenting thought, and that’s the greatest danger of all.

      Sounds like something right out of 1984.

        Yes. When I was a kid, this was hyperbole. It was said as an almost humorous exageration. Never thought I’d actually see it become reality. Facts and truth are now prohibited.

        Many people didn’t get the attached memo with their copy of the book “1984”: “This is a book about a horrific totalitarian state. This is not an instruction book to help you create your own.”

    • I can hardly wait.

    Her Facebook page is still up and functioning perfectly well. I see no evidence of the silencing of political dissent. The video is still on Youtube (Google) with hundreds of uncensored comments. I have to say, $500 per video sounds a little steep to me. Most videos today are made with an iPhone 6 for free.

    I’m hoping the “Streisand Effect” will bring widespread public attention to:
    (a) The conspiracy by the new media giants to censor information that is deemed to be hurting feelings even if it is completely accurate and true, and
    (b) The Gatestone video that seemed to have precipitated this removal, so that many more people view it than would have if it had been left alone.

    Coming to a first world nation near you soon, the New Dark Ages. Keep your powder dry.

    There is a side of this no one is asking about. Do you think these companies signed this agreement for free? I suspect that they did it in exchange for governments cracking down on their competitors.

      I suspect you are on to something and tend to agree.
