While Rome burned… Germany has just officially launched a 29 member fake news panel that will oversee all media, but most specifically Facebook, SKY, Twitter, Google and RTL. Why those sources in particular? Because they proliferate in the schematic of Blogs, a media outlet that is currently, unregulated and uncensored.
Today, most media outlets are censored by the government, censored by the military, censored by a cabal whose goal has been for decades to control what the public hears and knows in order to educate them according to their interpretation of Truth. And in many cases, to educate them through the elimination of Truth.
Within this targeting of offensive and fake news, even more unnerving is how the ‘offending posts’ will be determined. Anyone can take a picture of whatever post they feel is bigoted, offensive, fake or otherwise and submit a complaint. The complaint is then referred to a self regulating panel within the social media front and if it is not removed, it is referred to this very independent 29 member panel within the German government for review. If the panel finds the comment or blog or article offensive or fake, they will then inform the media outlet and demand retraction within 24 hours. If the company does not retract the offensive post it can be fined upwards of $60 million. (The 24 period may be lengthened in very specific legal circumstances).
Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I imagine that would also apply to fake or slanderous speech. Hence, the line of censorship is quite comparable to the propaganda of Nazi Germany.
In 1933 Nazi organizations made up lists of books they felt should not be read by Germans, ultimately they raided libraries and book stores whereby they confiscated and torched books deemed unacceptable. Textbooks were rewritten to portray a singular view of Nazism and the world. All newspapers, media, theatre, art, music, and radio came under the auspices of Joseph Goebbels and his Storm Troopers.
Signed into law October 2017, it was not effective until January 1, 2018 and despite heavy criticism, is now in force. Labeled NetzDG, the law is hugely vague as to what constitutes a violation.
Stories that would have been blocked and considered fake by the panel would have included; “Who invented the story of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq in 2003 to reduce a whole region to rubble? Who propagated and supported the Maidan movement in Ukraine in 2014 as a supposed “revolution” in order to strengthen right-wing extremism and nationalist forces and foment conflict with Russia? Who used the lie about mass rape in Cologne on New Year’s Eve 2015/2016 to ignite a wave of anti-refugee sentiment? And who spread images of alleged “left-wing extremist” violence at the G20 summit in Hamburg to criminalize left-wing opponents and ban left-wing websites such as linksunten.indymedia.org?”
This model of censorship is also being utilized by the EU Commission which has published guidelines to “proactively identify and remove illegal content. The press release states that the EU Commission will “closely monitor and evaluate the progress of online platforms in the coming months,” in order to decide whether “legislative measures to complement the existing legal framework” may be necessary.”
As such the EU has surpassed its Socialism and officially entered into the first phase realm of a communist state. With Germany once again at the helm.
In 2016, during the Presidential campaign, recording artist Moby was contacted by the CIA and told to publish “rumors about Trump’s supposed collusion with the Russians”. A rumor. Would the CIA be subject to NetzDG? If Moby’s account had been targeted would the CIA defend him and allow the rumors to proliferate? When Hollywood takes out their dirge of commentary in which they threaten Trump’s life, would those comments be eradicated? Of would they remain via defense implemented by the Soros cabal?
Who decides? Who is this independent panel?
Facebook implemented their panel of 500 employees in Essen Germany whose sole function is to eliminate content they feel violates NetzDG. Self regulation was the first order as demanded by the German Socialist government. Of course, this form of censorship has already been highly tagged in the Facebook scandal wherein young ‘curators’ used their personal political agenda to scrub conservative sites from the trending topics searches.
Twitter has come under fire for their “curators’ who recently targeted the feed of AfD deputy group leader, Von Storch, who responded to an Arabic-language Twitter post by Cologne police on New Year’s Eve by writing: “What the hell is happening in this country? Why is an official police site tweeting in Arabic? Do you think it is to appease the barbaric, gang-raping hordes of Muslim men?”
The post was deleted and her Twitter account suspended as it was deemed ‘hate speech’.
What Germany has created is a “legal means” for Social Media to censor the expressions of people whose political views do not align with their own. Unfortunately, the political views of Twitter and Facebook CEO’s are hugely Liberal and thus their regulation has allowed them to feed a biased, false, faked agenda of what is Truth.
