I once promised to keep my trans-oceanic friends updated on our European endeavors. If you are bored by the endless stream of victories from the old world, please refrain from reading any further (with my blessing).
If not, I have a pearl of orthodoxy to share with you today:
Our exalted leader, Frau Merkel, has declared that no population has the right do define who belongs to that population. She also said that "the German people is everybody who lives in this land".
- The german constitution must be dragged to the memory holes, since it does have a definition for "citizens" of Germany that is a bit more "narrow" than just "living in Germany".
-Military manuals all over the world are being updated: the game of war is now won by the belligerent who can hop over a border fence in the greatest number on election day, thereby becoming legal citizens and voting for their own general (thus winning the war).
Thank you for your attention!
Now back to the beet fields.
Ground Zero of the foaming thought sterilization campaign is, of course, Zuckerberg's Empire.
Chermany has robust, well working laws against defamation & Co - but hey, that's not enough.
So now there is a hastily cobbled together law with Gummiparagraphen (rubber-elastic clauses) about Fake/Hate whatever, and (@FB) a €50 Million penalty if "fishy" content isn't Memory-Holed within 24 hours. While "fishy" is determined by an (obnoxious) quasi-gov-run "organ" (lead by an - officially known - ex-StaSi informant, and financed - as far as known - by leftish foundations, Soros included).
The outrageous indecency of all that isn't just a gut feeling - notable lawyers say, it's unlawful.
(zhe Cherman Minister of Justice ; insecure manikin ; polit-miscreant, main driver of "the cause")
(and Herr Maas' striking similarity to Adolf Eichmann is unrestrictedly ironic, in this context)
(Wollt ihr den totalen ... ? is a well established meme)
Once more a voice against EU insanity - from the Italian "Nigel Farage", Mr. Salvini of Lega Nord
(and, oh, that melodic, colorful sound and expressive plasticity of Lingua Italiana!) :
signore SalviniMi scuso col pubblico che sta seguendo qui questi deliri. Secondo me, non siete normali. Ci sono 20 milioni di disoccupati in Europa, c’è il terrorismo islamico, c’è un’immigrazione fuori controllo. E voi con cosa impegnate il Parlamento Europeo, peraltro deserto? Sul bavaglio a Facebook e sulle fake news. Voi dovreste essere curati da un medico bravo.
(vicepresidente del Parlamento Europeo interrompe ... Salvini continua)
Questa sua vaga minaccia non mi fa né caldo, né freddo. Per il ‘popolo degli Europei’ essere contro il terrorismo islamico significa essere islamofobo, essere contro le adozioni vuol dire gay omofobo, voler chiudere i campi Rom e fermare l’invasione clandestina in corso significa essere razzista. No, significa avere buon senso, essere uomini liberi. Vi sta andando male, non riuscite più a comprare i cervelli e a controllare i giornali, i telegiornali, le radio.
In Gran Bretagna hanno votato come hanno voluto. Negli Stati Uniti hanno votato come hanno voluto. In Italia hanno votato come hanno voluto. E quindi che vi state inventando? Il bavaglio su Facebook. Bavaglio su Internet. Pene, 1 millione, 5 millione, 50 millione. Vi inventate il ministero della Verità di George Orwell. Io aspetto che il Parlamento Europeo ci paghi la Psicopolizia per indagare gli psicoreati di quelli che non sono allineati al pensiero unico e alla moneta unica.
Potete inventarvi tutti i bavagli che volete, ma l’unica cosa che potete fare è preparare le valigie e andare a cercarvi un lavoro vero, perché la libertà non la ferma nessuno. Grazie, evviva la Rete, evviva Facebook.
(close, near verbatim:)I apologize to the audience [on gallery] for being confronted with the delusions going on here. In my opinion, you [panel] are not normal [not right in the head]. There are 20 million unemployed in Europe, there is Islamic terrorism, immigration is out of control. And you deal with what here, the European Parliament, however deserted? The gag on Facebook and on "fake news" [and on "hate speech"]. You need a treatement by a good doctor. (gallery applauds)
(the Vice President of the European Parliament interrupts - while Salvini thanks the gallery, and warns: they may throw you out for sassiness -, asks Salvini for respect towards the Parliament and warns: watch your words [or else...])
(Salvini counters and continues:) Your vague threat makes no odds to me.
For "the European people" to be against Islamic terrorism means they are islamophobic, to be against adoptions [by gays] means they are homophobes, to demand closing the Roma [Gypsy] camps and stop illegal invasion [by migrants] means they are racists. No, it means they use common sense, and they are free people. You are losing, you can't own people's minds anymore, and control the newspapers, the TV news, the radio.
In the UK people voted as they wanted. In the US people voted as they wanted. In Italy people voted as they wanted. And so what do you come up with? The gag on Facebook. Penalties, 1 million, 5 millions, 50 millions. You introduce the Ministry of Truth of George Orwell. I expect the European Parliament to pay for a Thought Police to investigate the Thought Crimes of those not conform to the sole [predefined] thinking and the single [Euro] currency.
You can invent all the gags you want, but the only thing you can do is pack your bags and go look for a REAL job, because the freedom can't be stopped by anyone. Thanks, and cheers to the Net, hooray Facebook.

FB's preemptive obedience is already @ work. Just 2 days ago, Imad Karim first blocked, and now fully Memory-Holed in FB.
Mr. Karim, not of "international prominence", yet well a public intellectual in Germany - of Libanese/Syrian roots, since 1977 (aged 19) in Germany. Filmmaker, TV-Journo, screenwriter. Critic of Islamofascism. Critic of the "Refugees Welcome" idiocy.
Knows intimately, with no filter, about the predominant "thinking" in the stream of Middle Eastern migrants: contempt and derision towards Germans, seen as naive idiots, easy to subdue and to be "ruled", "soon".
Knows intimately the German MSM landscape, knows about their complicity (via withholding, whitewashing, distortion). Worse - Karim SPEAKS about it. Uh, THAT was too much for the powers that be...
