WATCH: The Irish government is really angry one social media platform wouldn't comply with its demands to censor the speech of its citizens
· Nov 29, 2023 ·

The Irish government doesn't want its citizens to connect the recent Dublin mass stabbing to immigration, despite the fact that the perp, who stabbed four people on Thursday including three children, is an Algerian immigrant who has lived in Ireland for 20 years.

So following the attack — again, an attack by an immigrant — the Irish people rioted in the streets, which seems to have frustrated the lefties in parliament who just can't stand these "far-right," "anti-immigration," "extremists" who, for some reason, don't like it when immigrants stab their children. So what did they do in order to "stop the hate?"

They got in touch with social media companies and colluded with them to censor the speech of these Irish citizens who don't quite hold the right set of ideas. Not kidding.

A little context here: Gardai is Ireland's national police force, and Coimisiun na Mean is Ireland's new media regulator. Here's Ireland "Justice" Minister Helen McEntee, the face of the nanny state:

I spoke to a detective in Pearse Street on Saturday who was actively engaged with the social media companies throughout Thursday who was actively engaged with TikTok, actively engaged with Meta, so Instagram and Facebook, who was actively engaged with Twitter or X. She said very clearly that social media companies, in particular TikTok and Meta, they were responding, they were engaging with Gardai, and they were taking down these vile posts as they came up.

X were not. X were not, they didn't engage, they did not fulfill their own community standards, and that is why we are moving to a situation where these companies do not get to self-monitor. That's why Coimisiun na Mean has been established to make sure that these companies are held responsible. Because while some were responsible others were not.

So let me reassure you Guardai were seized of this, they were engaging, they were engaging directly with the social media companies.

Openly — right out in the open at parliament — this lady is talking about censoring speech — using Facebook and TikTok to get rid of opinions the state dislikes.

What a great treat it is to know that Elon Musk's X was the only social media company to say no. The world has changed, my friends, and now, thanks to Elon, these poor politicians will have to write laws specifically aimed at censoring speech instead of simply colluding with the platforms and getting away with it Scot-free. This is revolutionary!

Man, I love new Twitter!

I'll leave you this video, which conveniently is still available on X. No word on whether the other guys kept this one up.
