> "Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost, but freedom of expression has limits,"
> 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.

> 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.

> The left will stop at nothing till they have full control of how you're allowed to think.
> Hate speech should not pertain to ANYTHING other than an explicit call for violence against an individual.
> What she is saying is that she will not allow hate speech, which has NO definition!
> Anyone, anywhere, can determine what hate speech is.
> Difference of opinion? Hate speech.
Sounds like double speak to me.
How she manages to stay in power is beyond me.
It's just a matter of time though before she suffers a nervous breakdown and/or is thrown out of office.
Wow, this hag gives cancer a bad name.
When she says "Freedom of Speech Must be Curtailed to Keep Society Free",
she means the illusion of "free society" that we're given.
