EU Cites Terrorism by Muslims They Let In as Reason to Ban Right-Wing's Free Speech

Once again, the terror attacks of Muslims which the EU let in with open arms are being used to restrict the freedoms of the right.

Via Reuters:
BRUSSELS - Facebook (FB.O), Twitter (TWTR.N), Google's (GOOGL.O) YouTube and Microsoft (MSFT.O) on Tuesday agreed to an EU code of conduct to tackle online hate speech within 24 hours in Europe.

EU governments have been trying in recent months to get social platforms to crack down on rising online racism following the refugee crisis and terror attacks, with some even threatening action against the companies.

As part of the pledge agreed with the European Commission, the web giants will review the majority of valid requests for removal of illegal hate speech in less than 24 hours and remove or disable access to the content if necessary.

They will also strengthen their cooperation with civil society organizations who help flag hateful content when it goes online and promote "counter-narratives" to hate speech.
This is purely about shutting down right-wing speech. The only speech deemed "racist" and "intolerant" is right-wing speech, therefor all these laws are about is banning the right from being allowed to engage in political discourse and speak the truth.

The Orwellian named EU "Justice Commissioner" went on to justify the crackdown citing the recent Muslim terrorist attacks, which were conducted by Muslims the EU let into Europe despite the protests of the right.
"The recent terror attacks have reminded us of the urgent need to address illegal online hate speech. Social media is unfortunately one of the tools that terrorist groups use to radicalize young people," EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova said.

Your freedoms are to be taken away because we let in these crazy people and put you all in danger, understand?
Germany got Google, Facebook and Twitter to agree to delete hate speech from their websites within 24 hours last year and even launched an investigation into the European head of Facebook over its alleged failure to remove racist hate speech.

"There's no place for hate speech on Facebook," said Monika Bickert, Head of Global Policy Management at Facebook.

"With a global community of 1.6 billion people we work hard to balance giving people the power to express themselves whilst ensuring we provide a respectful environment."

The code of conduct is largely a continuation of efforts that the companies already take to counter hate speech on their websites, such as developing tools for people to report hateful content and training staff to handle such requests.

Twitter has suspended over 125,000 accounts since the middle of 2015 for threatening or promoting terror acts, primarily related to Islamic State.
Don't buy the ruse. Though Reuters has millions of dollars to spend they won't tell the truth. Twitter has been shutting down right-wingers' Twitter accounts for years now under the flimsiest of pretexts, they only started shutting down ISIS terrorists' accounts spewing Jihad propaganda this February.
Jewish lobbyists, frequently the target of hate speech, welcomed the code of conduct.

"This a historic agreement that could not arrive at a better time," said Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress.
This is the proof the new right is winning. These people have no arguments against us so they can only succeed by shutting down our speech, which in turn only makes people want our content more. While in the past communists were edgy and trendy, now it's the burgeoning right. Since calling us "racists" and "anti-Semites" is no longer working, they're pushing to have us outright banned from the internet.

Fear not, we are rising all over Europe and here in America.

Change is coming, all these laws will soon be turned around and used against the very people who passed them.
