The United Nations proposed draconian anti-free speech laws yesterday in order to protect women and girls from “online harassment”.
Social justice warriors are poised and ready to circumvent liberty under the guise of political correctness.
As it stands, Twitter and Facebook can’t be held responsible for users’ activity but the United Nations proposed new plans for social networks to strenuously police their websites. They would monitor profiles and posts under the new agreement thereby circumventing your first amendment rights.
The report said:
“The respect for and security of girls and women must at all times be front and center, producing and providing the content, technical backbone and enabling environment of our digital society.”
The first amendment reads:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
The United Nations cannot invalidate our laws.
Restricting online speech sets a dangerous precedence in a world where Universities say “I’m not racist” is racist or “I’m an American” is offensive.
It is impossible to keep track of what constitutes offensive language anymore thanks to political correctness permeating western culture, distracting society from real issues and allowing foreign bodies to create an online environment for cultural marxism to flourish.
