Theresa May: “The fight against terrorism and hate speech has to be a joint one”

46

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “The fight against terrorism and hate speech has to be a joint one. The government and security services are doing everything they can and it is clear that social media companies can and must do more.

By “hate speech” the egregious May doesn’t mean the hatred against Jews and other kuffar that is preached in mosques. No, she means opposition to jihad terror, which she has long branded as “hate speech,” when she banned me from the country and on other occasions. So when she says “the fight against terrorism and hate speech has to be a joint one,” she is saying that “the fight against jihad and those who oppose jihad is a joint one.” And now she is trying to get social media companies to shut down my colleagues and me.

“Exclusive: Google and social media companies could be prosecuted if they show extremist videos,” by Christopher Hope and Laura Hughes, Telegraph, March 24, 2017:

Google, Facebook and other internet companies could be prosecuted if they do not stop extremist videos from being seen on their websites by people in Britain, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Ministers are considering a new law which would mean Google – which owns YouTube – and other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter can be prosecuted if they allow such videos to be disseminated.

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, made clear her displeasure at internet companies that publish extremist content on Friday, saying “the ball is in their court” over taking action.

Google publicly apologised this week after the growing scandal over extremist videos on YouTube led to a series of companies pulling their adverts from the internet giant.

Google, which owns the video sharing website YouTube, and other social media sites have an agreement to take down extremist content within 24 hours when they are alerted to it.

But ministers are worried that this still allows the videos to be viewed thousands of times before they are taken down.

However ministers in the Home Office are now looking at a new law to force the websites to take down content immediately or face court action.

Officials are trying to work out how the law can be enforced in the UK given that many films that can be seen in the UK are hosted on foreign websites.

One source said: “We want to see them take on their responsibility. The problem with the law is in itself we can do what we can but these are global companies.”

The Home Office’s talks with the internet companies are being led by Baroness Shields, who as Joanna Shields was a former Facebook executive.

The news came as Mrs May’s spokesman said that “social media companies can and must do more”.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “The fight against terrorism and hate speech has to be a joint one. The government and security services are doing everything they can and it is clear that social media companies can and must do more.

“Social media companies have a responsibility when it comes to making sure this material is not disseminated and we have been clear repeatedly that we think that they can and must do more. We are always talking with them on how to achieve that

“The ball is now in their court. We will see how they respond.”…
