Angela Merkel Says Freedom of Speech Must be Curtailed to Keep Society Free

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that freedom of expression must be curtailed in order to keep society free.

Yes, really.

“For all those who claim that they can no longer express their opinion, I say this to them; If you express a pronounced opinion, you must live with the fact that you will be contradicted,” said Merkel during a speech to the German Parliament.

“Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost, but freedom of expression has limits,” she added, as some in the Bundestag could be heard voicing their disagreement.

“Those limits begin where hatred is spread, they begin where the dignity of other people is violated. This house will and must oppose extreme speech otherwise our society will no longer be the free society that it was,” said Merkel.

Of course, what “violates” the “dignity” of other people is completely subjective and could include all manner of speech that most people would find perfectly acceptable.

The debate over free speech in Germany has intensified since the country accepted over a million migrants from the Middle East and North Africa from 2015 onwards.

Many Germans have found themselves hit with charges of hate speech for pointing out ‘hate facts’ like migrants being responsible for crimes and sexual assaults

This happened despite the German government’s own numbers showing violent crime in Germany rose by 10 per cent between 2015 and 2016 and that more than 90 per cent of the rise was attributable to young male “refugees.”

Lawmakers in one area of Germany even attempted to pass a law that would have jailed people for insulting the EU anthem or burning the EU flag.

As we document in the video below, Germans were subjected to a re-education campaign to encourage them to accept their new reality rather than the government actually addressing their concerns about mass migration.

  1. No, freedom of speech is not curtailed, approved speech. It is free speech. I can say whatever I want as long as I take responsibility for it. Just as you are free to refute what I say.

    Merkel has no clue, she is just another authoritarian wanting to impose her world view.

    • you say
      ‘Merkel has no clue’

      Not true
      This authoritarian bitch grew up in East Germany and understands the jackboot well.
      Don’t mistake being an evil asshole for being incompetent.

      Note as well authoritarian people whose father was a professional god-botherer or vicar/clergy.
      These people have grown up with a parent telling people what to do and adopt the same glue-eared wonky approach.

      Such critters include :-
      Short term terrible British PMs- Theresa May and Gordon Brown
      Angela Merkel
      NZ’s own Sorry man Cunliffe.

      …Merkel’s father, Horst, was a Lutheran pastor who was so committed to socialism that he moved his family from West to East Germany shortly after his daughter was born…

  3. Anyone who has read 1984 knows where this is going, there being no such thing as an ‘unreconstructed’ ‘repentant’ Communist. The Globalist / Marxist agenda marches on…
