In his tweet, the UN Secretary general in a very Orwellian way, said he had “launched a plan to identify, prevent, and confront hate speech, while upholding freedom of speech and expression”, this my dear reader, is what is called a ‘doublespeak’ as a result of ‘doublethink’ – the acceptance of contrary opinions or beliefs at the same time, especially as a result of political indoctrination. Hate is disliking something or someone with passion part of emotion and everyday life, banning an emotion or something deemed as hate speech is indeed banning free speech.
But what is hate speech for the UN after all? According to their own definition from their plan to suppress it, it ‘hate speech’ is in itself an attack on tolerance, inclusion, diversity and the very essence of our human rights norms and principles.” Apparently criticizing diversity, the failure of multiculturalism and how they made life much worse in most Western countries is itself now hateful.
Their plan to fight it?
– More censorship in online platforms to opposing views;
– Monitor the activity those deemed ‘hateful’;
– volunteer groups of jobless or little to do individuals who spent their life online searching and reporting on opposing views;
And finally, new forms of ‘self-policing’, most likely Artificial intelligence tracking dissident speech.
The document insists that the fight against ‘hate speech’ will withhold free speech, but we all know it’s far from the truth. Hate speech is just an umbrella term used by the establishment and elite to censor freedom of thought of speech from inconvenient opinions and facts, and their grip on the monopoly of what can be said or not online is growing tighter every day.
