Muslim Mayor of Londonistan Comes to USA to Attack Free Speech Online

As the treatment of Lauren Southern, Martin Sellner, and Brittany Pettibone made obvious, freedom of speech is all but dead in Britain. It was destroyed by Islamophilic political correctness, which the U.K. now exports:

At the annual SXSW festival in Austin on Monday, the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, made a moving plea for tech companies to take on hate speech.

He presented hostile tweets directed at himself to “illustrate that big tech has further to go in making the internet free of hate speech.”

Khan urged companies like Facebook and Twitter to show “a stronger duty of care” so that “social-media platforms can live up to their promises to connect, unify, and democratize the sharing of information and be places where everyone feels welcomed and valued.”

By “everyone,” he means everyone who shares his point of view. Others must be banned, so as to “unify” the sharing of information.

The London mayor suggested that Facebook and Twitter remove offensive content and misinformation faster and face fines if they don’t.

Germans, whom the British once were willing to fight to the death to preserve their liberty, present the way forward:

In January, Germany began enforcing a new rule that gives social-media platforms 24 hours to decide whether something is hate speech. German police are investigating a far-right politician, Beatrix von Storch, who described Muslims as “barbarians” on Facebook.

Khan says he expects Londoners to pressure their representatives to create a similar rule.

Careful you don’t criticize Khan for trying to snuff out free speech. He is a Muslim. You don’t want to get banned for hate speech, do you?
