It's all about taking away free speech slowly. It's so obvious.

First we ban the memes, then anything considered funny.

Then we outright ban any differing opinion that doesn't conform.

Additionally, EVERYTHING on the internet WILL OFFEND someone at SOME POINT. So the government can't possibly hope to just ban everything offensive. Bah.

The right needs pictures and cartoons to convey their simplistic approach to complex issues. Progressives can use words to convey thoughts that span the distance between "this good" and "that bad" and "me show funny picture".


It's not about left and right. They're coming for your free speech. It says LEFT but it is essentially all part of the same New World Order cabal.

It's always for our own good. It's always for copyright or for this or for that.

It's never about silencing us, for allowing the DEEP STATE to take full control of you. Oh no, never. Trust us.

Wrong.
Progressives use simple words out of context instead like bigot or racist to shut down argument......or just pass laws like artical 13

The Left Can’t Meme So They’ve Just Decided To Ban Memes Instead.


I spit in your face, globalists.


I love how reactionaries have decided gloablism is a left-wing thing. Yay low info far-right populist dreck. You know all those black bloc protesters you undoubtedly hate? You're appropriating their terminology but if you look at recent decades, they're the ones who have actually been protesting the globalist institutions (look at any World Bank, WTO, G7/G8/G20 protest ever).

Ironic isn't it?

Oh but that's just the tip of the irony iceberg. According to right-wingers, the left-wing technocrats are trying to silence "conservative" voices. Then something like this Article 13 comes along and of course — it's the Left!

Except that no, Article 13 isn't about dank memes, it's about money. Because at the end of the day, it's always about money. And who actually stands to lose the most? All those platforms that rely on user generated content that you imagine are out to get you who have lobbied against it.

EU approves controversial copyright directive aimed at Google, Facebook, Twitter


Article 13 requires platforms such as YouTube and Facebook to prevent the “illegal” uploading of copyrighted content. This would effectively force platforms to scan content prior to allowing the upload. The concern is that this would result in “censorship” by the big platforms, because they don’t want to risk liability. The current system requires notice of a violation before a takedown.

Progressives use simple words


To communicate with the right. We can draw pictures if you cannot read. Anything to help the disabled.

You're right, I mean everyone said Obama was gonna take our guns. Didn't happen.

If Hillary got elected, I was going to open a gun store. I would have made so much money!

You would have made money. Obama made the NRA and the gun industry grow.

Funny how many guns got taken during the Obama presidency - from the gun industry to consumers. Lots of money in selling fear.

I bought a few guns during those years. Needed a deer rifle for my son, and my younger boy outgrew his 20 gauge and wanted to move up to a 12 for ducks.

Not so much because a black president was coming to put me in a FEMA camp.

Don't waste time on those games. My boys seem to like them thought. My oldest son, who is a currently serving US Marine, tells me all the time that civilians are #, and don't really know what serving really means.

I am sure you know what it means, however.

The EU and some of the states within it has been threatening Facebook and other online companies with its draconian "hate speech" agenda for quite some time. They'd prefer bureaucratic control of speech rather than leaving that power in the hands of individuals. Oppose it while you still can.
