Poland: Social Media Companies Face $2.2 Million Fines For Removing Lawful Free Speech

Hell yeah!

A new law set to be passed in Poland would fine social media companies $2.2 million a pop for censoring lawful free speech.

While numerous western countries are seeking to impose heavy fines on the likes of Facebook and Twitter for failing to remove “hateful” content, Poland is taking a very different approach.

“Under its provisions, social media services will not be allowed to remove content or block accounts if the content on them does not break Polish law,” reports Poland In.

“In the event of removal or blockage, a complaint can be sent to the platform, which will have 24 hours to consider it. Within 48 hours of the decision, the user will be able to file a petition to the court for the return of access. The court will consider complaints within seven days of receipt and the entire process is to be electronic.”

Polish Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro made clear that the legal initiative was designed to tackle censorship and that it wouldn’t impact the right of people who have been slandered or defamed to pursue justice.

“Often, the victims of tendencies for ideological censorship are also representatives of various groups operating in Poland, whose content is removed or blocked, just because they express views and refer to values that are unacceptable from the point of view of communities… with an ever-stronger influence on the functioning of social media,” said Ziobro.

“We realise that it is not an easy topic, we realise that on the internet there should also be a sphere of guarantees for everybody who feels slandered, a sphere of limitation of various content which may carry with it a negative impact on the sphere of other people’s freedom.”

“But we would like to propose such tools that will enable both one side and the other to call for the decision of a body that will be able to adjudicate whether content appearing on such and such a social media account really violates personal rights, whether it can be eliminated, or whether there is censorship.”

This should be the model for all developed countries that value free speech.

In reality, the opposite is true, with the UK for example set to introduce an “Online Safety Bill” that threatens social media platforms with fines up to $24 million for failing “to protect users or remove harmful content.”

Here is an article that looks at how Twitter is planning to steer the vaccine narrative:

It is becoming increasingly clear that we are under social control headed like lemmings to the COVID-19 vaccine “sea” by the technocrats in charge of our online pastimes.

People wouldn’t know the truth today if it slapped them up side of their heads.

The truths today.

Stay locked up in your home. Might want to consider painting the door in blood. The virus knows.

Masks prevent the covid and all other diseases.

Wash hands 72 times a day (every 20 minutes) keeps the covid away.

You’re safe if 6 ft away from anything living (front to front not side to side)….. the virus knows.

The virus is real cuz doctors and PCR (Pandemic Creating Resource) tests says so.

No assembly EXCEPT if your protesting racism or some other White crime. The virus knows…

Fresh air and exercise is harmful to your health.

Farts spread the covid.

The covid likes to inhabit testicles and likely can be spread by sex.

Children are immune because their immune system response to the covid is suppressed.

Dying for any reason testing positive for the covid will officially make your death marked as covid.

Small businesses spread the covid,,, large conglomerates do not.

No medicine of any type can help get over the covid.

Only a DNA changing vaccine to increase your immune response can eradicate the killer virus.

Anything au contrare is verbotton and you will be censored or banished to the nether land.

It actually began in 1913, with the creation of the Federal Reserve System.

One has to wonder when the United States will enforce the First Amendment as well as the Poles do.

THANK YOU FOR PROVING MY POINT !! Why do you / they become so hysterical whenever you/they are mentioned without reverence? Why are you/they incapable of defending yourself beyond the use of insults, and aspersions? Why are you/they untouchable, above scrutiny, and beyond reproach?
