Merkel Declares War On “Fake News” EU Brands Russia Today, Sputnik “Dangerous Propaganda”

Things have come to a pretty pass when the leader of a supposedly democratic nation, Germany, is trying to abolish free speech and suppress any online news site that does not toe the line on her pro – global – dictatorship, pro – mass – immigration policies but that appears to be what Germany’s Chancellor Haudfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel is trying to do.

Picking up where Barack Obama left off on the topic given the most column inches this last wee by the discredited mainstream media of the USA, namely the spread of so-called “fake news” (i.e. the stuff that was not made up by government propaganda departments and which was branded far simply as “conspiracy theory” until far too many conspiracy theories turned out to be the truth or at least somewhere close,) Hausfrau Volksfuhrer Merkel warned on Wednesday against the power of fake news on social media threaten the establishment and spur the rise of populists.

Speaking in parliament for the first time since her announcement Sunday that she would seek re-election next year, Merkel cautioned that public opinion was being “manipulated” on the internet. And we are not being manipulated by the propaganda pumped out in broadcast news and print media, oh come on Hausfrau Volksfuhrer, we are not all stupid enough to be successful politicians you know.

“Something has changed — as globalisation has marched on, (political) debate is taking place in a completely new media environment. Opinions aren’t formed the way they were 25 years ago,” she said. Well that is precisely the problem, the elites are pushing towards a global authoritarian government which We The People do not want.

Quoted by France 24, Merkel said “Today we have fake sites, bots, trolls — things that regenerate themselves, reinforcing opinions with certain algorithms and we have to learn to deal with them.” She’s talking bollocks of course, and compunded the offence when she said the challenge for democrats was to “reach and inspire people. However, should that fail, Merkel essentially suggested the time for censorship has come: “we must confront this phenomenon and if necessary, regulate it.

Merkel’s warning comes a week after Google and Facebook (which overnight was revealed to have a “tool” ready to implement regional censorship) moved to cut off ad revenue to bogus news sites after a US election campaign in which the global misinformation industry may have influenced the outcome of the vote.

Perhaps the real reason for Merkel’s concern about people seeing diverse ideas on the internet is that while her conservative Christian Democrats are likely to win the German national election, expected in September or October 2017, she is facing a strong challenge from a rightwing populist party, Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has her liberal refugee and migration policy in its crosshairs.

Meanwhile, just as Merkel was launching Europe’s war on “fake news”, Europe’s bureaucrats were one step ahead, and in a shocking move, on Wednesday the EU Parliament voted on a non-legislative resolution which calls for the EU to “respond to information warfare by Russia.” Russian news websites RT and Sputnik news agency were alleged to be among the most dangerous “tools of Russian propaganda.”

So we are not allowed to read Russian news because it might present Russia’s point of view, but we are allowed to read the fabricated shite put out by corporate controlled media?

Free Speech Is Being Murdered By The Media And Left Wing Authoritarianism
Without free speech there is no democracy. Without democracy there is no freedom. But all over the developed world free speech is under attack from politically correct politics.

Will Bilderberg End Privacy As We Know It? Agenda Suggests The Elite Will Know Everything About You

It seems the less of a threat you pose to society, they more these bastards feel they can exploit your very natural fears. It is not al Qaeda you need to fear, but the elite.
