Facebook to name French hate speech suspects

Facebook to name French hate speech suspects

Facebook has agreed to give the names of French users who are suspected of using hate speech on its platform to the courts when requested. In the past, Facebook had not identified suspects because it was not required to do so under US-French law. The French parliament is currently debating laws which could see tech companies fined if they don’t do enough to remove hateful content.

Problem is that FecalBook defines anyone not a Social Justice Warrior is labeled someone who produces Hate Speech. Little Micron will use that to shut down opposition. FB is pure Evil.

Letting French government authorities define hate speech and act with that information in a trustworthy manner is like putting a Vegas casino manager in charge of your bank account... In fact I would trust the casino manager over the French/New Zealand/Canadian government any day, they are all part of the same bent group.

Fuck EU!!! Europeans are fucking pompous concentration camp pussies. Go into the streets and start slaughtering leftist leaders and when they say ”look we've got to stop them" slaughter them as well. Bilderbergs like juancker, macron and Merkel torture them in public and make it REALLY clear we are coming after you globalist scumbags!

Looks like I’m on someone’s list! I’ve been known to say something deemed to be offensive here and there. This is really getting scary... I’ve always known freedom of expression in France was a joke, but this takes the cake.
