Globalist President Emmanuel Macron is flirting with more anti-free speech measures.
At an annual dinner, Macron put forward the idea of permanently banning those convicted of so-called “hate speech” crimes from all social media.
Broadcaster BFMTV reports that a bill fighting hate speech online will be filed around May.
This proposal to put the clamps on Internet speech coincides with the ear-piercing levels of criticism Macron is facing throughout the anti-government Yellow Vest protest. The French government has brought down the hammer on the Yellow Vest protestors, arresting approximately 8,400 protestors in a span of a few months.
According to Macron, “The European fight must continue, but it is too slow.” Macron then went out of his way to compare banning individuals convicted of hate speech from social media to football hooligans being banned from attending football matches.
Now, there are questions regarding how the government will enforce this social media ban.
Secretary of State for Digital Affairs Mounir Mahjoubi said “the IP address is what Twitter has on each user who publishes a message on its platform. It must, as soon as possible, send it to the justice system to quickly identify the author and then ‘we can continue’.”
“It is no longer acceptable today that platforms that have the means to help justice and the police to identify the person who has committed an offence online take several weeks, even months, before giving the information.”
The logic authoritarian globalists use is at times baffling. Let’s consider this:
Hooligans are individuals that actively cause mayhem and destroy private property. On the other hand, those convicted of hate speech happen to say something that merely offends another individual or group. The only thing hurt in the latter case is someone’s feelings.
France is embarking on a dangerous path with its latest move to further persecute hate speech. Hate speech is a vague term that authoritarian politicians use to muzzle controversial opinion and quell dissent.
France has witnessed the rise of “No Go Zones” and other unsavory social trends thanks to the EU’s mass migration policies. As a result, numerous dissidents on the Right have stepped up to the plate to expose these schemes throughout the EU. Instead of being applauded for their public service, they’ve generally been met with social media exclusion and in worst case scenarios, fines and jail time.
Macron’s latest proposal is par the course for globalist politicians in the EU. These politicians have made it a point to push for more laws and regulations to combat hate speech and so-called fake news online.
Day by day, free speech becomes an afterthought in Europe.
