THE UNITED NATIONS Wants to Censor the Internet to AVOID OFFENDING FEMINISTS
The world has truly gone mad. The left wing United Nations now wants to interrupt the flow of free speech on the internet to avoid offending feminists.
Milo Yiannopoulos reports at Breitbart:
The UN Wants to Censor the Entire Internet to Save Feminists’ Feelings
In a report released yesterday, entitled “Cyber Violence Against Women And Girls: A Global Wake-up Call,” UN Women, the group behind last year’s risible “He for She” campaign, called on governments to use their “licensing prerogative” to ensure that “telecoms and search engines” are only “allowed to connect with the public” if they “supervise content and its dissemination.”
In other words, if search engines and ISPs don’t comply with a list of the UN’s censorship demands, the UN wants national governments to cut off their access to the public.
So, what sort of content does the UN want to censor? ISIS recruitment videos, perhaps, which lure women into lives of rape and servitude? Live-streamed executions from Syria? Revenge porn or snuff videos? There’s no shortage of dangerous and potentially traumatising content on the web, after all, much of it disproportionately affecting women.
Alas not. The UN is hung up on “cyber violence against women,” a Kafkaesque term that is apparently shorthand for “women being criticised on the internet.”
Isn’t it funny how the left frequently wants to criminalize criticism of the left?
