Russian officials are citing authoritarian censorship laws passed by European governments as a justification for passing similar laws restricting free speech in Russia.
From The Moscow Times:
Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a controversial set of bills that make it a crime to “disrespect” the state and spread “fake news” online, Russian media reported on Monday.If you're an EU-Authoritarian, you literally can't argue with that logic.
The governments of Sweden and Germany regularly raid people's homes or drag people into court over "anti-migrant" Facebook posts. Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom are throwing people in prison for watching or sharing video of the mosque attack in Christchurch.
Though Western media outlets are whining about these new laws in Russia and complaining about how authoritarian they are, the reality is most Western governments' laws are even worse. Additionally, it's journos who are at the forefront of waging war on the First Amendment here in America.
