    US Internet Giants, EU Reach Deal to Combat Online Hate Speech

    U.S. Internet giants reached an agreement with the European Union Tuesday on ways to tackle instances of online hate speech within 24 hours.

    Some of the world's biggest social media firms, Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft, have committed to “quickly and efficiently” act to combat the use of social media by terrorists to spread hatred against anyone over issues of race, color, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin.

    The companies’ platforms and services have often been used by terrorist organizations to convey messages and entice hatred against certain individuals or groups, and recruit supporters around the world.

    Under terms of a code of conduct agreed to with the EU's executive arm, the firms have pledged to establish internal procedures and staff training to guarantee that a majority of illegal content is assessed and, where necessary, removed within 24 hours.

    There is no such thing as "hate speech"; this is a load of shit from a leftist statist cryptofascist EU, and leftist us Democrat regime.

    Have to give the US some credit on this issue; hate speech is not a crime there yet, threats are but not hate speech. We're not as messed up as the EU. We have a strong 1st Amendment to our Constitution that guarantees free speech and the wackos have not found a way around that so far.

    If you stick the word terrorist in, it's OK, but say laws to suppress the truth, that might raise a few eye brows.

    Remember a few years ago, UK, guy charged with inciting racial hatred on his web site.
    No doubt the guy was far right, but he was posting crime stats by race in his neighborhood, posting the truth was deemed to be illegal.

    To my way of thinking, these laws are about control of the truth, in the guise of fighting terror and extremism.

    Seems truth can only be PC truth and we better get used to it or change the system and that appears to be happening.

    Which might seem odd, as most Big Brother associations are almost always of a rightest origin...
