VIDEO: EU And Facebook Pledge To ‘Reeducate’ Users And Crush Free Speech

The EU announced on Tuesday that Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft had “signed up” to a new ‘Code of Conduct’ containing a long list of new “commitments”.

They include working closely with the EU, national governments and “their law enforcement agencies” to “criminalise” perceived “illegal hate speech” online and censor it within 24 hours.

A measure that went almost completely unreported, however, was the promise that Twitter and Facebook will be “educating” and “informing” their users online, as well as “promoting” EU approved “counter-narratives”.

    This should be their “hate speech” reeducation video.

    Ahh, someone decided to take 1984 as a guide to the perfect reality… and not as a warning.

    The ridiculed and mocked tinfoil-hat conspiracy theorists from the dawn of the internet have been proven unnervingly Nostradamus-like in the past few years. Given their track record, I think it only prudent to start worrying about the machinations of lizard-people too.

    If you’re still on FB, you deserve it.

      Precisely. Having a “free” FaceBook account is a choice. You either BELIEVE it is actually “free” and sign up, or you laugh out loud at what was obviously a monster-in-the-making from the very outset and pass.

      I have no FaceBook, Twitter or any other social media accounts. I have too many real friends and colleagues in real-time/meatspace to bother with social media. Hence, social media’s plot to undermine the “free speech” of their non-paying members/account holders was both entirely predictable and avoidable.

      Mark Zuckerberg sucks fascist cock, and I have no time for him or his antics, which do not affect me. If one did not see the obvious portal for fascism when social media reared their ugly little heads, one deserves what one gets. After all, Mark Zuckerberg sucks fascist cock.

        If something you use is free online, you’re what’s being sold.

    When they openly admit that they are against the cornerstones of a free civilization the time of change through the ballot box is approaching its end. If you can’t openly try to change peoples mind with the force of your ideas, and “they” are scared that your ideas are dangerous, the civilization that brought us our personal and political freedoms and the high standard of living that go with it are over.

      Jefferson said that a revolution every 30 years is needed to refresh society, and like a thunderstorm, clear the air. So it is with respect to the Fourth Reich. Aux barricades!

        Aux armes! Etcetera!
