The EU Commission is regulating the entire Internet . lots of websites in the USA are now closed to EU residents because they dont comply with EU law ,such as the chicago tribune , anchorage daily , sunSentinel , Abilene Reflector-Chronicle . Why do Companies in the USA have to comply with EU Internet Laws anyway ? The Commission is uniting with all the big Tech Companies to push through an Internet Dictatorship where only certain views will be promoted and acceptable .
^
Facebook have effectively just blocked me from the site ,it started after I highlighted the Glitter Hole incident , from then every post i made was getting a message from facebook that it breaches facebook policy , now they want me to confirm my mobile number , I bet after that they will look for photo identification , the people running facebook hate anybody who challenges the consensus
^
I wonder how many of the NGOs are funded by George Soros
^
so twitter met with google , facebook and the EU Commission today to agree a pathway for censoring dissenting irish voices . Is the 4th Reich or what ? and its all done under the guise of hate speech which technically could encompass any speech someone else doesn't like or agree with
^
Its glaringly obvious now that these companies are here to control public discourse and push the EU Federalist agenda , every day more and more dissenting voices are being censored by these corporations . its a sham
^
I left Twitter on the 4th July last , didn't realise the significance of the date until recently , I've seen people with thousands of followers only get 3 retweets . Your talking into an echo chamber if you hold views not shared by the Company . Here is my last Tweet :

During the abortion referendum what pro lifers didn't and dont realise is that they are talking into an echo chamber where nobody will see their tweets while at the same time pro abortion supporters are reaching the masses , the real members of the public . This is being organised at the highest levels of the corporation

^
When they say 'hate speech' , they mean anybody who questions the EU Commission or the direction in which Ireland is heading .

transgender therapy is much more damaging than conversion therapy . with trans therapy you have bodily mutilation , irreversible medication to stop the natural development of the body and serious side effects from drugs such as puberty blockers . why dont they ban transgender therapy .

so it will be legal for children to have double mastectomy to change gender but illegal for therapy to discourage this . transgender therapy is barbaric and yet this is perfectly ok by our government and anyone offering therapy to help children keep their existing gender is to be outlawed What has happened to ireland .
