'You Can Run But You Can't Hide': EU Official Threatens Elon Musk for Pulling Twitter Out of 'Disinfo' Pact

Thierry Breton, EU Commissioner for the Internal Market, is threatening Elon Musk once again, this time for pulling Twitter out of an EU pact supposedly aimed at combatting "disinformation."

"Twitter leaves EU voluntary Code of Practice against disinformation," Breton said Friday on Twitter. "But obligations remain. You can run but you can't hide. Beyond voluntary commitments, fighting disinformation will be legal obligation under #DSA as of August 25. Our teams will be ready for enforcement."

Breton similarly threatened Musk with sanctions and a potential EU-wide ban last year if he dared to allow free speech on Twitter. Musk met with Breton and said he would comply with their censorship rules under the EU's Digital Services Act.

The DSA, aka the Censor the Internet Act, is an anti-free speech act aimed at censoring "hate speech," regulating speech during times of "crisis" and restricting online anonymity through digital passports.

The EU's "voluntary" Code of Practice on Disinformation calls for tech platforms to demonetize so-called "purveyors of disinformation" and allow "researchers" to spy on their users to see how "disinformation" spreads on their sites.

As I reported last week, the Biden regime here in America is similarly pressuring tech companies to ban "extremist websites," ban "hate speech" and institute "zero tolerance" policies to protect Jews from "antisemitism."
