Germany's new law can fine Facebook, Twitter up to $57-million for hate speech

Quote:


Starting in October, Facebook, Twitter, Google and other social media companies could be fined up to nearly $57-million by Germany for hateful messages posted on their site. The new law, which passed Germany's parliament on Friday, will give a company 24 hours to delete a post that has been flagged as racist, defamatory, or hateful before fining them.

If I were either company I'd just cut off access to Germany. With a billion users FB certainly wouldn't miss them. With their access removed users in the country would be in near revolt. I wonder how fast parliament would change the law ??

Except merkel And zuckerberg were caught by hot mic plotting things such as these in 2015

Angela Merkel caught on hot mic confronting Mark Zuckerberg over racist Facebook posts - Washington Times


They are tools of the state.

Maybe the progressives here can get their lemmings worked up enough to cry for things such as this here in the land of the free.

The main purpose of such laws is to protect Jewish secrets.

In a corrupt society, the truth can be found in what is forbidden to say.
