Germany Goes Full STASI with Internet Censoring

Since when is the truth considered hate speech?

Germany goes full STASI

The German government is about to deal with the internet-news  “problem” in an upcoming Nazi-style move, going full STASI with regard to censoring news reports which are not in line with the official dogma. Basically, any internet-based media report that makes Chancellor Merkel and her open borders policies look bad will now be censored with impunity. As BBC reported recently, Nazi style laws which allow for censorship of social media (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter) and internet websites like theissue.com, Breitbart and Infowars among others, were implemented at the end of June. These laws will pressure social media companies to remove content based on what German lawmakers describe as being hate-speech, i.e. anything that contradicts government approved news:

“The Netzwerkdurchsetzungsgesetz (NetzDG) law was passed at the end of June 2017 and came into force in early October. The social networks were given until the end of 2017 to prepare themselves for the arrival of NetzDG.

…Germany’s justice ministry said it would make forms available on its site, which concerned citizens could use to report content that violates NetzDG or has not been taken down in time.”

That means the hordes of social justice warriors are now given a free hand to censor (as in report) anything they view as being offensive. Obviously, this will further limit German’s access to news and uncensored information via social media, as anything deemed offensive will be impossible to be accessed from Germany on platforms like Facebook or Twitter. And it’s predictable that any articles or news depicting Germany’s migrant problems, its open borders suicidal policies and so forth and so an, on short anything that makes Merkel look bad, will be hidden from public view. STASI is back in town.

We shall see whether the Germans will put up with overt censorship. My hunch is Frau Merkel will regret this. As usual, the left can’t win a debate, hence censorship is their trump card.
