This is Exhibit A of why we don’t trust the Tories or their phony “National Conservatism” rebranding. It is also why we criticize Joe Biden and the Democrats, but stop well short of endorsing the GOP. These people have a long history of harvesting and exploiting populist backlash movements.
“The Government plans to extend football banning orders for online racism, while social media giants face huge fines if they fail to remove abuse from their platforms, Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed on Wednesday.
Johnson announced the changes to MPs in the wake of racist messages being sent to England players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka after they missed penalties in the Euro 2020 final shootout defeat to Italy on Sunday.
Johnson warned that social media companies would face fines amounting to 10 per cent of their global revenue if they did not act in removing hate and racist abuse from their platforms.
The Prime Minister told MPs the Government is taking action, saying: “Last night I met representatives of Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, and I made it absolutely clear to them that we will legislate to address this problem in the Online Harms Bill. …”
Censorship is a legitimate issue.
Illegal immigration is a legitimate issue.
There are all kinds of legitimate issues that we talk about here.
In the UK, “National Conservative” Boris Johnson is leading the charge for censorship. He is running the Orwellian police state where the government hunts you down for expressing your opinion!
