Here is the amazing Ezra Levant on this scandal, that has been almost completely ignored my the MSM (Main Stream Media).
…and now that you have watched the video, know that you have just been subjected to hatespeech. Because, as you can will see on the video’s YouTube page, there is a small message in yellow telling you that “This video is hidden. Please be considerate, and think twice, before sharing it.”:
And what is so dangerous about this video, that you are warned and better think twice before possibly sharing it? It critizises EUs anti-Free Speech laws! The fact that the video is “hidden” means that you can not google it or find it in any other way, unless you go directly to Ezra Levant’s YouTube channel. Not only does YouTube’s deal with EU suppress political incorrect information, it also harms people like Levant economically, because he lives from donations collected via his videos. And now that you have been watching this video, prepare for YouTube to suggest educative videos for you – instead of related videos – in the future, because that is exactly what EU dictates:
“The European Commission has today announced a partnership with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft in order to crack down on what it classes as “illegal hate speech”…
The move has been branded “Orwellian” by Members of the European Parliament, and digital freedom groups have already pulled out of any further discussions with the Commission, calling the new policy “lamentable”.
The unelected, executive branch of the European Union (EU) released a “Code of Conduct” today that “includes a series of commitments to combat the spread of illegal hate speech online in Europe” developed “together with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft (‘the ITcompanies’)” who have “signed up”.
The commitments include “educat[ing] and rais[ing] awareness with their users” and building a “network” of “trusted reporters” to flag unwanted content. Facebook and Twitter are to provide “regular training to their staff on current societal developments” and work more closely with national governments and “their law enforcement agencies” to remove content the EU does not favor.
Most alarmingly, however, the platforms have also promised to engage in the active promotion of views and organisations the EU does favour, and the re-education of supposedly hateful users. …
Janice Atkinson MEP told Breitbart London: “It’s Orwellian. Anyone who has read 1984 sees it’s very re-enactment live.
“The Commission has been itching to shut down free speech in the Parliament and now they’re attacking social media. We have already seen Facebook ‘policing’ so-called right-wing postings. …
UKIP’s Justice and Home Affairs spokeswoman Diane James MEP told Breitbart London:
“This legislation is so vague that it is the thin end of the wedge not just curb hate speech but free speech as well. …
Last September, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was overheard confronting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg about “hate speech”, with Mr. Zuckerberg replying: “We need to do some work””
