Twitter users are expressing their support for people’s right to use so-called “hate speech” on social media, after the European Union (EU) announced they are working with Facebook and others to censor unwanted online speech within 24 hours.
Yesterday, it was reported that Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have “signed up” to a new European Union (EU) “Code of Conduct”, pledging to censor and “criminalise” perceived “illegal online hate speech” as well as “promoting independent counter-narratives” that the EU favours.

nothing like hating everyone who might be struggling. nothing like hating the working class that lost their jobs when shipping was sent overseas and are looking for something else. nothing like hating the Americans who go to work but still qualify for assistance.
anon, i hope your mommy stops giving you money and you actually have to do something to earn a living.

The European Commission plans to attack citizens’ right to online privacy, insisting that state-issued ID cards should be used to log into platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and even Uber.
The Vice President for the Digital Single Market on the European Commission, former Communist Andrus Ansip, is behind the next European Union (EU) raid on personal freedoms, promoting the idea of using national ID cards to log in to online services.
Leaked documents from within the European Commission revealed a call for the roll out of a more extensive use of national ID... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
God what faggots. How can you even justify having a social media account literally tethered to an EU ID card. That just doesn't sit right. Next they'll want to inject an RFID into you that does the same thing.

The number of people arrested in London for so-called “online crimes of speech”, mainly made on social media, has shot up in the past few years.
Six hundred and twenty-five arrests were made for online speech crimes in 2010, rising to 857 in 2015 — a 37 per cent increase in just five years. The shocking data was released in a freedom of information request made to the Metropolitan Police, reported by The Register.
Offenders were targeted with Section 127 of the Communications Act of 2003, which covers offensive and threatening... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This isn't a terror attack, guys, it's just some palestinian guys in an israeli market shooting indiscriminately into crowds of civilians. The fact that there (allegedly, let's at least try to be a little objective here) were four of them in the same location is mere coincidence. They most likely arrived independently and it's happenstance that none of them shot at each other. This obviously wasn't even coordinated to create terror in the populace, and those people running away, well, wouldn't you run away too? "Terrorist" is laughable.... Comment too long.

>>49013 Funny thing is, I was just there this morning having breakfast (partly to make a point, partly because I was hungry and it's close by). Place was packed by both camera crews and diners - mostly diners. No tourists, though, as far as I could tell - usually the location (Sarona) is very popular with them. I suppose one can get used to pretty much anything.

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” while “criminaliz[ing]” perpetrators and “promoting independent counter-narratives” that the European Union favours.
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 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.

Trash-talking Philippine presidential favourite Rodrigo Duterte has warned he is prepared to cut diplomatic ties with the United States and Australia after their envoys criticised his comments about the jailhouse rape of a missionary.
Duterte also told the ambassadors to "shut their mouths", as controversy raged over his comments last week in which he said he wanted to have been the first to rape the Australian woman who was brutalised and murdered in a 1989 prison riot.
"If I become president, go ahead and sever (diplomatic ties)," Duterte, 71, said on the campaign trail on Wednesday night, referring to the relationships with the United States and Australia, two of the Philippines' closest allies.
Duterte, who while campaigning has called the pope a "son of a bitch" and promised to kill tens of thousands of criminals, recounted at a recent rally the attack on the Christian missionary as part of his tough-on-crime pitch to voters.
"I was mad she (the missionary) was raped but she was so beautiful. I thought, the mayor should have been first," she told the crowd.
Duterte was at the time mayor of Davao, a major city in the southern Philippines where he is accused of running vigilante death squads that have allegedly killed more than 1,000 people.
The front runner has at times on the campaign boasted about running the death squads, claiming they killed 1,700 people, but also denied any links to them.
Duterte has similarly offered varying responses to the rape comments, with his media team releasing a statement in which he apologised. But on the campaign trail, he has repeatedly told reporters he would not say sorry.
Australian ambassador Amanda Gorely criticised his remarks this week, saying on Twitter: "Rape and murder should never be joked about or trivialised. Violence against women and girls is unacceptable anytime, anywhere".
