The European Union aka the Fourth Reich now wants to ban political speech they do not like. They are threatening to pass laws against "disinformation" that competes with their own disinformation.
They put Elon Musk on notice he's in their crosshairs.
Common Sense and Wonder dishes:
"European politician Věra Jourová warned Elon Musk from theWorld Economic Forum in Davosthat Twitter will face "sanctions" if it does not shut down some forms of speech.
Jourová, the European Commission’s Vice President for Values and Transparency, told Euronews Next that Twitter may face penalties for enabling free speech in violation of European Union regulations. "The time of the Wild West is over," she said.
"We will have the Digital Services Act [DSA]. We will have the Code of Practice as a part of this legislation," Jourová said. "So, after Mr. Musk took over Twitter with his ‘freedom of speech absolutism’ - we are the protectors of freedom of speech as well. But at the same time, we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on. So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise there will be sanctions."
The only reason to censor speech is to stop the truth from getting out. It is the hallmark of tyranny.
The European Union deserves to join Hitler's Thousand Year Reich in the ashbin of history.
