Germany: Take Away Free Speech So There will be “Freedom” Merkel Style By Richard Miller
Yes, the old bag lady of globalism is still there working to bury what remains of traditional Germany.
“German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed the Bundestag recently to warn the German parliament about the dangers of free speech. “We have freedom of expression in our country,” Merkel argued. “For all those who claim that they can no longer express their opinion, I say to them: If you express a pronounced opinion, you must live with the fact that you will be contradicted. Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost.” In 2018, Germany enacted a strict ban on certain speech that elites of the day consider “hateful.” Under the new law, sites can be fined up to 50 million euros, around $55 million, for not promptly removing so-called “hate speech” from their platform. “But freedom of expression has its limits,” Merkel warned. “Those limits begin where hatred is spread. They begin where the dignity of other people is violated. This house will and must oppose extreme speech. Otherwise, our society will no longer be the free society that it was.” Merkel’s speech was considered unusually emotional for the German chancellor and also confusing to everyone who knows that you either have free speech in a country or you have politicians with the power to ban whatever speech they don't like. Merkel’s concerns over free speech have everything to do with silencing critics of Merkel’s open-door immigration policies.”
This is precisely what one gets for the sheeple allowing tyrants like his to rule over them in the name of the globalists, and continue to rule with no end in sight.
