SINISTER FORCES: Brexiteer MP SHUTDOWN On Twitter For 7 Days As Eurocrats Step-Up Attacks On Free Speech

2K Shares

Janice Atkinson, the Brexit-supporting British MEP for the South East Region and Vice-President of Matteo Salvini’s ENF group, came back earlier today from a 7-day Twitter ban:

The EU is indeed in the throes of a crackdown on what it brands ‘hate speech’ but what most normal people call free speech. Unelected Eurocrats solemnly tell us “speech that incites racist and xenophobic violence and hatred is illegal”.

Andrus Ansip, European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Single Market, claims credit for rapid response times by big tech giants:

“Today’s evaluation shows that cooperation with companies and civil society brings results. Companies are now assessing 89% of flagged content within 24 hours, and promptly act to remove it when necessary.”

Meanwhile, with no apparent sense of irony, Vĕra Jourová, European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, said: 

“Illegal hate speech online is not only a crime, it represents a threat to free speech and democratic engagement.”

It can’t be a coincidence that this attack on free speech is coming just before the European elections, elections in which Ms Atkinson’s ENF group along with other Eurosceptics are projected to take more than a third of the seats up for grabs. More attacks on free speech by the crumbling Eurocracy are more than likely on their way as people across Europe turn against the EU.
