Terrorism works. In the wake of every jihad attack come sharia-backed policies, legislation, and submission. Freedom of speech is not the problem. Free exchange of ideas is not the problem. Islamic texts and teachings that exhort to jihad is the problem. The West means to silence the mechanism in which those religious teachings are shared? That is a primitive as jihad savagery.
As long as Quranic texts and teachings are seen as legitimate and holy, Muslims will share them, preach them, and act on them with or without the internet. What is May going to do, ban WhatsApp and Telegram, the dark web? She banned my colleagues and me, not jihad preachers or these Muslim terrorists who slaughtered Brits in the homeland. She equates those of us who oppose jihad (extremists) to the jihadis (extremists).
The internet is the last place for informed citizens to get news and information the sharia-compliant elite media won’t cover.
Like every bad leftwing idea, this steaming pile of dung is packaged in a blue Tiffany box. Remember how they sold “hate crime” “legislation” using the brutal beating of a gay man, Matthew Shepard (when actually it was just a drug deal gone bad). Hate crime legislation was officially criminalizing thought. Thought crime.
Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following the London Bridge terror attack. Of course, good folks will say, well, that makes sense, because they don’t know better. But let me assure you, these measures will be used to silence my colleagues and me. The left has already proved to be too fearful of Islam to take real action against jihadis. And if my colleagues and I were not blacklisted and invited to debate these ideas in the national conversation, good people would see this for exactly what it is.
Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following London Bridge terror attack
The Prime Minister said terrorists had ‘safe spaces’ online
New international agreements should be introduced to regulate the internet in the light of the London Bridge terror attack, Theresa May has said.
The Prime Minister said introducing new rules for cyberspace would “deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online” and that technology firms were not currently doing enough.
The Prime Minister made the comments outside Downing Street on Sunday morning in the aftermath of the van and knife attack that saw seven people killed and dozens injured.
“We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed – yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide,” Ms May said.
“We need to work with allies democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.
The call was one plank in Ms May’s speech following the attack. The Prime Minister also said Britian was too tolerant of extremism and that “pluralistic” British values had to be established as superior.
The PM warned there was “a new trend in the threat we face” and that while the three recent terror attacks in the UK were not linked by “common networks”, they were “bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamic extremism”.
The Conservative manifesto pledges regulation of the internet, including forcing internet providers to participate in counter-extremism drives and making it more difficult to access pornography.
Ms May speech is thought to be the first time she has publicly called for international cooperation in bringing forward more red tape to cyberspace, however.
The intervention comes after the introduction of the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 – the so-called ‘Snooper’s Charter’ – which expands the powers of spying agencies and the Government over the internet.
