In Germany, their Justice Minister is advocating for the imprisonment of up to a 5 year sentence for anyone who posts "fake news" on social media websites like Facebook. Is this a suppression of free speech?
They're going nuts in Germany. They're making it more and more likely the radical right will cleanse that place in a blitzkrieg.
They need their own trump.
I agree that something radical needs to happen in Germany.
We already know this is just a war against republicans...liberals call anything they don't believe fake news when in fact the mainstream media is 90% FAKE NEWS...
I could understand prosecuting the originators of harmful fake news stories but once it's in the populace there's going to be a percentage who share and believe whatever is out there. They shouldn't be prosecuted.
And who is going to make the determination on what really is fake news? Can't trust the politicians to do it or anyone associated with the government.
The German justice minister raped my dog. Then the minister took a 2 hour break to read Mein Kampf before raping my other dog.
This is the next step in the fascism of the left.
I'm ok with fake news as long as it's clearly marked as fake news.
I'm not ok with outright lies being posted as real news.
Should I start marking my comments as fake comments?
Are you going to post any polls?
Comments are usually opinions so no need to label them.
I haven't posted a poll because it's so quiet around here. I used to get at least 100 comments, now I'm lucky to get 30.
My comments are all facts‼️😂
I know you so well. I knew you'd say that! Lol
Fake News, is fake news. Just because it spouts what you think is the truth despite evidence to the contrary does not make it true, it's still fake news! It hurts people and makes Americans seem so stupid to the rest of the world.
Dawn ... have you ever traveled outside the US? Your comment suggests that the answer is a resounding NO!
Yes. If you traveled outside the States you would know this to be true. People around the globe think Americans are stupid for believing a lot of the fake news and just shake their heads at our collective ignorance.
He's right, a lot of us are stupid enough to read or listen to CNN, MSNBC, Washington Post, the New York times, USA today, etc.
Dawn ... I lived in three other countries for 15 years. I've traveled all over the world for over 30 years for business and pleasure.
I suggest that you are completely clueless as to the view of others about the US. But to make the point most abruptly, if we are viewed as unintelligent as you suggest, please explain why people are literally dying to come here!
I suggest that next time you venture into a subject that you know little about that you not present yourself as an expert for your day trip to Tijuana!
I mean it's better than hearing people talk about the bullshit they heard on CNN earlier
Are these the European laws liberals want us to implement?
Also, I like how they condemn Putin for being a danger to the free world, when they've done worse.
I wonder how many counts of hate speech I'd be arrested for in Germany.
"Suspect claimed that Europe shouldn't take in all of the Middle East's population. Let's give him 10 years with no bail. Next case, Mohammad, you may have raped 15 people, but they were white, and whites did slavery, so you're getting community service."
