Beatrix von Storch, a leading figure in the Alternative for Germany party, is one of the first hit by new hate speech laws on social media. Critics say the legislation opens the way for censorship by internet companies.

A top lawmaker from the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party was blocked from Twitter and Facebook on Monday after slamming the Cologne police for sending a New Year’s tweet in Arabic.

The incident caused the AfD to lash out further and criticize censorship as a controversial new German social media law known as NetzDG went into effect January 1 in a bid to clamp down on online hate speech.

    Interesting as history repeats. The results, the final outcome, will most certainly be the same, as the last time Germany controlled free speech.

    Associates of German descent, told wisely of a reunited Germany again rising from the ashes, as a Phoenix, to resume it’s role as a marching, conquering nation.

    Woe be to any that recognize history, attempt to hinder the advancement of power, sought by those latest demographic, gradually taking over….. command.
