AFP reported Friday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel “urged British political parties to moderate their speech in their campaigns over the Brexit vote, after a popular pro-Europe MP was murdered at the height of the divisive debate.”
Responding to the murder of Labour politician Jo Cox, Merkel said: “The exaggerations and radicalisation of part of the language do not help to foster an atmosphere of respect.”
Spoken like a true German leader. If any Western country on earth should be in the vanguard of the defense of the freedom of speech, it should be Germany, given its history. The Third Reich insisted that the Nazi-controlled press was better for the moral, social, and intellectual welfare of the citizenry than the so-called free press. Sound familiar?
If the UK has any shot of surviving as a free society, Brexit is it. But the murder of Jo Cox by an insane man with a long history of mental illness is being mined by EUroids, with Merkel in the lead, once again speaking out against the freedom of speech. This political exploitation for malevolent purpose echoes pre-Nazi Germany when on the night of February 27-28, 1933, a mentally disabled Dutch citizen set fire to the German parliament building (the Reichstag).
Hitler and his propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, presented the incident as the prelude to an armed Communist uprising and persuaded the aging President Paul von Hindenburg to establish what became a permanent state of emergency. This decree, known as the Reichstag Fire Decree, suspended the provisions of the German constitution that protected basic individual rights, including freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of assembly. The decree also permitted increased state and police intervention into private life, allowing officials to censor mail, listen in on phone conversations, and search private homes without a warrant or need to show reasonable cause. Under the state of emergency established by the decree, the Nazi regime could arrest and detain people without cause and without limits on the length of incarceration. (Holocaust Encyclopedia)
Again, sound familiar?
This isn’t the first time Merkel is censoring free speech (in accordance with Islamic law). In April, the BBC reported that “Germany will allow the potential prosecution of a top comedian after the Turkish president filed a complaint. Jan Boehmermann had recited a satirical poem on television which made sexual references to Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Under German law, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government had to approve a criminal inquiry. Mrs. Merkel stressed that the courts would have the final word, and it was now up to prosecutors to decide whether to press charges.”
This is just one example of Stasi-style sharia enforcement in Merkelistan. This woman is adopting Hitlerian policies regarding the freedom of speech: Hitler, too, restricted speech and enforced one single point of view upon the German people, much the way Merkel is doing now. In September 2015, she strong-armed Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook to censor posts critical of the migrant invasion. CNBC reported that Merkel was “overheard confronting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over incendiary posts on the social network.” What kind of incendiary posts? Pro-jihad terror posts? No: Merkel was angry about posts criticizing her policy of inundating Germany with Muslim migrants.
The CNBC report continued: “On the sidelines of a United Nations luncheon on Saturday, Merkel was caught on a hot mic pressing Zuckerberg about social media posts about the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany, the publication reported. The Facebook CEO was overheard responding that ‘we need to do some work’ on curtailing anti-immigrant posts about the refugee crisis. ‘Are you working on this?’ Merkel asked in English, to which Zuckerberg replied in the affirmative.”
That Zuckerberg agreed to do Merkel’s bidding on this shows what a vacuous meathead he is.
This is so typical of the elites. They control policy, they control the media, they control the culture — but they can’t control the people. And this makes them crazy. If they could, they would change the people.
The truth is that almost all of my readers connect on Facebook. It is the individual’s media arm — I dislike Facebook’s business practices, but they are essential to the work. The only media telling the truth about the Muslim invasion in Europe is websites like mine, and Facebook is key to distribution. So if you aren’t following me on Facebook — like my page, share the posts. It’s difficult. They block us, ban us, etc.: my SIOA Facebook page was banned and my own account suspended in the wake of the Orlando jihad massacre – until a popular outcry forced Facebook to reverse itself. We have to fight for everything we have. And fight we will.
In hectoring Zuckerberg to enforce this censorship, Merkel has gone off the rails. Civil war is coming.
Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant can wreak havoc unopposed while his opponents are silenced.
Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths. If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others.
Merkel’s solution? Merkel is digging in, barking orders from her bunker, impervious to the danger as she brings into Germany hundreds of thousands, even millions more Muslim migrants. She is hell-bent on destroying Germany, and Europe.
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
