WEF: United States Will Soon Make Hate Speech Illegal, Says EU Commissioner

Kurt Zindulka 19 Jan 2023

The United States will soon follow Europe in implementing laws against so-called hate speech, a top Eurocrat claimed at the World Economic Forum’s meeting in Davos.

The vice president for Values and Transparency for the European Commission, Věra Jourová predicted on Tuesday that hate speech laws will be imposed upon the American public, despite longstanding case law at the Supreme Court protecting such speech under the First Amendment.

“Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourová said.

The Czech politician, who previously served as the European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, made the comments during a WEF panel hosted by former CNN host Brian Stelter on “The Clear and Present Danger of Disinformation.” The choice of Stelter may perhaps be viewed by some as ironic given his own relationship with the truth.

The panel also featured New York Times chairman Arthur Gregg Sulzberger, Democratic Congressman Seth Moulton, and Internews CEO Jeanne Bourgault.

Representative Moulton seemingly agreed with the statement from the EU Commission VP, telling her: “I think in general the US has a lot to learn in terms of data regulation, internet regulation… You’re way ahead of us in that regard.”

However, the Democrat politician later clarified that he did not believe that American politicians were ready to forsake the fundamental aspects of freedom of speech.

You mean hate speech isn't already criminalized in the U.S.?

Their definition of hate speech I fear is anything that disagrees with the policies of the WEF.

Mz. Dingus doesn't realize that to do what she wants would require a complete overthrow of the US govt.

So what she's saying is an act of war. She's lucky I'm not in charge, because her and her ilk would come to a very quick end.
We are two countries now.

Go with the army you got.

We have wandered into the territory of dictatorship.

The actual FBI director seems to agree:

Here's FBI Director Christopher Wray praising a China-style global surveillance system being created "between the private sector and the government." That's the definition of tyranny.

 Director of FBI Christopher Wray says “the level of collaboration between the private sector and the government, especially the FBI has made significant strides”
