    Angry First Amendment being attacked by Obama's CEO Liberals again!

    It's just the beginning folks. Yes Obama/Biden/Kerry and Hillary's CEO buddies of U.S. Internet giants Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc., Google and Microsoft Corp. pledged to tackle online hate speech in less than 24 hours as part of a joint commitment with the European Union to combat the use of social media by terrorists.
    While it seems like a somewhat good idea, you can easily see where this is headed. It will soon block Christian messages, anti-Global warming data, anti-liberal messages and anything that isn't PC etc...

    U.S. Internet giants Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc., Google and Microsoft Corp. pledged to tackle online hate speech in less than 24 hours as part of a joint commitment with the European Union to combat the use of social media by terrorists.Beyond national laws that criminalize hate speech, there is a need to ensure such activity by Internet users is “expeditiously reviewed by online intermediaries and social media platforms, upon receipt of a valid notification, in an appropriate time-frame,” the companies and the European Commission said in a joint statement on Tuesday.
    The code of conduct arrives as Europe comes to terms with the bloody attacks in Paris and Brussels by Islamic State, which has used the Web and social media to spread its message of hate against its enemies. The companies said it remains a “challenge” to strike the right balance between freedom of expression and hate speech in the self-generated content on online platforms.

    “We remain committed to letting the Tweets flow,” said Twitter’s head of public policy for Europe, Karen White, in the statement. “However, there is a clear distinction between freedom of expression and conduct that incites violence and hate.”
    Platforms Sued

    A French Jewish youth group, UEJF, sued Twitter, Facebook and Google in Paris this month over how they monitor hate speech on the web. In the course of about six weeks in April and May, members of French anti-discrimination groups flagged unambiguous hate speech that they said promoted racism, homophobia or anti-Semitism. More than 90 percent of the posts pointed out to Twitter and YouTube remained online within 15 days on average following requests for removal, according to the study by UEJF, SOS Racisme and SOS Homophobie.
    “With a global community of 1.6 billion people we work hard to balance giving people the power to express themselves whilst ensuring we provide a respectful environment,” said Monika Bickert, head of global policy management at Facebook, in the statement. “There’s no place for hate speech on Facebook.”

    Maybe the problem is with the message more so than the blocking?

    Still, blocking speech is dangerously stupid. It encourages more of it to happen in worse ways. Block too much speech and we'll see it become physical.

    That's so hard to police. Would Statboy's post be considered hate or comedy? Who decides, liberals? Their hate speech is probably not the same as ours. "Hillary is a bitch" is true, but could get you kicked off. Palin blaming Obama for family troubles is not true, but they probably wouldn't find it offensive. So the truth could get you banned and a lie would be harmless. (the world is upside down).

    Liberals are the worst hypocrites and would possibly be damaged the most by elimination of freedom of speech and zero tolerance of hate speech if monitored correctly.

    Little statboy would be banned for his KKK images on another thread much like the Civil War statues in New Orleans streets and confederate flags.

    Dang, do you socialist liberals and snowflakes really want this to happen in America?
    This is the type of power the far left wants to inflict on the United States. They hate our 1st and 2nd Amendments.
    Remember what Memorial Day is all about and the rights and reasons our brave man and women died in battle!

    Re: First Amendment being attacked by Obama's CEO Liberals again!

    Just amazing that the Dems are on the wrong side of every single issue..

    PAPER: Free speech means a free internet -- even if Democrats don't like it...

    BY DAN BACKER, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 07/06/18 06:30 AM EDT

    he Federal Election Commission (FEC) recently held two days of hearingson proposed internet regulations. While the hysterical media has ginned up a new “red scare,” the FEC’s proposals will do nothing to stop bad actors, but will undermine our First Amendment rights to online political speech.
    The FEC used the hearings, at which I testified, to consider different approaches — some more restrictive than others — to “improve” disclaimers for online political advertising. Yet FEC regulations already require political action committees (PACs) and other online spenders to use disclaimers where they can, or to click through to fully disclaimed pages if they can’t. PACs are also required to disclose all of their expenditures monthly or quarterly, and file special reports whenever spending more than modestly to support or oppose candidates.

    Existing regulations are clear and comprehensive. The law isn’t the so-called problem being addressed here, though; it’s all that persnickety speech outside the political establishment.

    The FEC’s Democrats, most notably Vice Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub, condemn advertising “paid for by Russia or other foreign countries,” urging Congress to “regulate political spending on the internet.” But that’s silly: The law alreadyforbade those bad actors in the first place.


    Bad actors won’t comply with the law — because they’re bad actors. For the political elites, who can afford to hire campaign finance lawyers and well-paid vendors, the FEC’s proposals will at most be a nuisance as they continue delivering their messages online.


    Regulating the internet will only overburden everyone else who would seek to comply with the law, or simply stay silent. The left’s quick-trigger response is as aggressively anti-First Amendment as they are to the Second Amendment, and every bit as pointless. Echoing anti-gun activists, anti-speech liberals attempt to punish lawful activity they dislike with rules that won’t stop unlawful activity.

    If political advertisers violate the regulations on the books, they should be pursued and punished. But the left’s vision of a less free internet is little more than ill-considered, knee-jerk reaction to Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid.


    The resonance of President Trump’s candidacy and eventual victory led Congress and federal agencies to take a heightened interest in Facebook advertising and other forms of truly open, online speech through which the Trump message flourished. Following the 2016 election, Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned against political ads “that would drive interest toward stories or groups” to “sow chaos and drive division in our country.” In other words, ideas he doesn’t like.


    Left-leaning journalists, meanwhile, continue to suggest “fake news” on social media elected President Trump. As NPR reporter Danielle Kurtzleben put it, “Many purveyors of fake news aimed to help Trump win, and lo and behold, Trump won.” In other words, ideas they don’t approve of.


    Of course, such assertions don’t hold up to empirical scrutiny. Zuckerberg first came under congressional pressure over $10,000 worth of Russian-bought Facebook ads. Not all of them were even explicitly political: Of the roughly 3,500 Facebook ads traced back to Russia, only about 100mentioned support for President Trump or opposition to Clinton.


    Are we really supposed to believe that $10,000 and 100 ads felled the billion-dollar Clinton machine — the epitome of political establishment? Or, could it be Americans simply rejected an out-of-touch liberal they didn’t like and couldn’t trust?


    To enact broader internet regulations because of the Democratic Party’s sour grapes is the definition of foolishness. Anti-speech Democrats and their establishment enablers assume Americans are mindless simpletons, bought off by the wealthiest candidates and most expensive ad buys.


    Have we so quickly forgotten the debacle of Jeb Bush? Or Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)? Or even Clinton herself? Along with Mitt Romney, these were the candidates with the largest super PACs in U.S. history — and they all lost.


    President Trump cruised to primary victory after victory running almost no ads. He won the White House after being substantially outspent in the general election.
