According to Germany’s Orwellian authorities, allowing the German people to share new and views on migrant dysfunction is “undermining democracy”. Things are certainly bad in Germany when the Facebook and Twitter are accused of being too supportive of free speech.

“Today we are discovering a ‘fifth estate’ that makes claims but up until now does not want to take any social responsibility,” Hans-Georg Maassen told a conference on cybersecurity organized by Germany’s Handelsblatt daily.

“These are huge digital companies that only see themselves as conveyors of information and hide behind the legal privileges enjoyed by platforms because they do not want to take over editorial verification of their content.”
