A liberal (sic) NY State Assemblyman, Weprin, wants a bill passed that will FORCE us to erase ANYTHING on the internet if someone demands the past be wiped clean! This assault on my 1st Amendment Rights is a liberal attack on my freedoms. How dare these Stasi tools interfere with the Internet? So, a judge is ordering the President to bring in invaders??? This insanity from the DNC appointed judges must be stopped. At least they are making crystal clear their treason.
In a bill aimed at securing a “right to be forgotten,” introduced by Assemblyman David I. Weprin and (as Senate Bill 4561 by state Sen. Tony Avella), liberal New York politicians would require people to remove ‘inaccurate,’ ‘irrelevant,’ ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive’ statements about others…
The picture above is something that upset me no end when I was a child: the dog is erasing the past and making Alice in Wonderland’s path vanish. Erasing the past is the #1 issue in the famous book, ‘1984’. The past was always being altered or erased!
Within 30 days of a ”request from an individual,”
“all search engines and online speakers] shall remove … content about such individual, and links or indexes to any of the same, that is ‘inaccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’ or ‘excessive,’ ”
All traces must be removed or else. ‘Inadequate’ is an insane gage! What on earth is that? ‘Excessive’ is variable in the extreme. How many is ‘excessive’. Maybe we can erase the Kardishanian lunatics!
If something is heavily in the news, must everyone do this thoroughly? And what if other people in these stories object? And how on earth can we protect ourselves from people if we can’t see who they really are?
“and without replacing such removed … content with any disclaimer [or] takedown notice.”
Good lord, you are not even to note ‘Big Brother forced us to erase this’ or even leave a …. to show something was removed???
“ ‘[I]naccurate’, ‘irrelevant’, ‘inadequate’, or ‘excessive’ shall mean content,”
Who determines what is ‘accurate’ or ‘relevent’ or adequate’ much less, ‘excessive’? Is there going to be an all-seeing judge set up to determine what we get to see or not see? I bet everyone here knows what happens next.
“which after a significant lapse in time from its first publication,”
“is no longer material to current public debate or discourse,”
“especially when considered in light of the financial, reputational and/or demonstrable other harm that the information … is causing to the requester’s professional, financial, reputational or other interest,”
Um…HELLO!!! The mass media is hounding people online and in the media and being chased out of jobs and homes and abused heavily for tweeting the wrong PC words, for example.
We don’t need government censorship for this, we need lawsuits against the businesses and schools who do this to employees. They should not be fired for saying something online.
And it is ONLY LIBERALS who are hounding people for being not PC, no one else is doing this.
“with the exception of content related to convicted felonies, legal matters relating to violence, or a matter that is of significant current public interest, and as to which the requester’s role with regard to the matter is central and substantial.”
Who is a ‘reporter’? I am a reporter. So are many citizens, anyone can be a ‘reporter’ because the definition is, someone who makes the news, writes the news, comments on events, etc.
The presumption of this DNC clown is, ‘mainstream fake news’ is the ‘news’ and the rest of us could be fined for money and put in prison if we talk about people and events and then the government says this has to be erased.
Nixon was big on erasing history, as I recall! All communist dictators do this all the time and are huge fans of erasing the past.
Failure to comply would make the search engines or speakers liable for, at least, statutory damages of $250/day plus attorney fees.
Here is more police state commie news: A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year. This is an amazing overstepping of authority.
Yes, Erdogan is planning to INVADE EUROPE. Openly! He is urging them to have as many children as possible so they can shove out native citizens. This open call for an invasion should wake up the silly German and French and Netherland and…Swedish liberal leaders who still have way too much power.
A federal District Court judge in Maryland is considering whether he should order President Donald Trump to double the annual inflow of refugees up to 100,000 per year.
Any demand by the judge that the federal government airbus an extra 50,000 migrants — including many adherents of Islam’s sharia legal system — into American neighborhoods would be an unusual intervention into government roles normally left to the elected President and Congress.
And our ‘liberal’ DNC judges are trying to force us to destroy our democracy the same exact way, ordering us to take in endless Muslims who hate our culture, our government and everything, it appears.
It gets even worse: One of the examples cited by Google for what it now considers “upsetting-offensive” content that will be subject to flagging, de-listing and possible censorship is a website that describes the religion of Islam as “intolerant”.
Yes, Google is going to censor us even more than now and already it is nearly useless as a search engine. It used to be most entertaining to find stuff, now it is a wider and wider wasteland. I use it, like the mainstream media, mostly to track the collapse of freedom on the internet.
And Google and Facebook will obey or else they will be hit by terrorists. We are supposed to take in thousands of potential terrorists every year so we can let them assault us and force us into being cowards. Good lord, and people wonder why the Roman Empire collapsed!
And here is WWIII, right on the other side of the planet. WWIII will be lots of fun. We will confront North Korea while being nasty to Russia and irritating China and this is a winning proposition: two of the biggest landmass/human population nations on earth both of which have nuclear weapons, we will fight them due to a crazy lunatic in North Korea? Good lord. Stupid.
