"French to block porn, terror, hate web sites"

I don't mind blocking child porn, but I wonder how long it will take before this site is blocked?

Now shut up and take your medicine, it's good for you!
French to block porn, terror, hate web sites

http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5j8n3 ... gD917A3I82

PARIS (AP) — The French state and Internet service providers have struck a deal to block sites carrying child pornography or content linked to terrorism or racial hatred, Interior Minister Michel Alliot-Marie announced Tuesday.

The plan, part of a larger effort to fight cybercriminality, is to go into effect in September when a "black list" will be built up based on input from Internet users who signal sites dealing with the offensive material, the minister said.

The announcement comes on the heels of a similar deal in the United States, also announced Tuesday. There, three service providers — Verizon, Sprint and TimeWarner Cable_ have agreed with New York state officials to block child pornography sites nationwide.

Alliot-Marie said all service providers in France have agreed to block offending sites but did not name them.

"We can no longer tolerate the sexual exploitation of children in the form of cyber-pedopornography," Alliot-Marie said. "We have come to an agreement: the access to child pornography sites will be blocked in France. Other democracies have done it. France could wait no longer."

Among other countries that have already implemented similar measures include Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Canada and New Zealand.

Under the French plan, Internet users, via a platform, will be able to signal inappropriate sites and the state, receiving the complaints in real time, will then decide whether the sites are to go on a so-called black list to be passed on to Internet service providers to enforce site blocks.

Sites containing what appear to be blatant crimes will be referred to judicial authorities, the minister said.

As for offending sites hosted in other countries, France will pass on the information via Interpol or Europol, the two police agencies, or seize judicial authorities there, Alliot-Marie said.

She insisted that the plan would not "create a Big Brother of the Internet" and pledged her support for the "fundamental liberty that is Internet access."

France's upcoming presidency of the European Union will be a chance to coordinate efforts between countries, she said, adding that efforts are often needlessly duplicated and sites shut down in one country often pop up in another.

Claims of 'fighting child pornoraphy', while sliding in vague notions of hate, fighting terrorism, and racism, has always been a favorite sleazy backdoor approach to silencing those who investigate the very stupid "Holocaust" myths. The intent is fold those who have rather convincingly refuted the mythological gas chambers into the same envelope with the others.

I’ve never been obstructed when I decide to frequent establishment dubbed “hate sites” whilst in Britain, so hopefully this will mean little in practice.

The idea that drives this is a kind of warped dogmatic paranoia from these neo-liberal extremists. To them the sense that the Nazis demolished Europe and flattened Germany is intense. Entirely subconsciously they know that the Allies where really responsible, the Nazis coming later in the blame equation. These are ugly, explosive truths that is utterly disgusting to them. So they stamp maniacally on anything that rehabilitates “that” partially or even indirectly. The holocaust being right in the firing line.

Holocaust discussion is very vulnerable to online censorship as forthright holocaust discourse takes place only online, it’s rebuttal a niche subject thereby it’s censorship would erase what’s left of the holocaust debate from the popular consciousness, completely. (Unlike say debate on mass immigration, compromised though that debate might still be).

The child pornography is just the excuse to make public opinion swallow this criminal attempt to secure a totalitarian "democratic" regime.

Trying to censor web content at an ISP level is the largest action against free speech that we could ever imagine, so now we can all laugh when they speak about the Nazis burning books, but this is no joke at all.

No wonder why France, now ruled probably by a former Mossad agent, is leading in Europe this effort to erase dissident voices.

How lovely as a Revisionist to be equated with Child Pornography, the practice of Pedophilia & Pedophiles.
Can these "Thought Police" sink any lower?
Unfortunately I think they can & will.
Wir brauchen eine Bewegung, die Deutschland endlich aus der Kontrolle der Kräfte von Versailles und Jalta befreit, die uns schon ein ganzes Jahrhundert lang von einer Kastastrophe in die andere stürzt.

The French government already makes French ISPs block revisionist sites, but it must feel that the current measures, short of an international concert on the subject of censorship, as demanded by Israel, are not enough. Two simple facts:

1) If you live in an European country where your government demands that ISPs forbid you to look up the facts on the "Holocaust," you may still access the blocked sites through anonymizers. Here is a good one (all you have to do is place the URL you want to access in the slot, click enter, and you'll be navigating the forbidden waters with no further trouble):

Anonymouse:

And a useful list of anonymizers:

2) Now, more than ever before, the entire World depends on the US 1st Amendment and its vitality in the face of US fascism on the rise.

The important part of the above news is the following: "The announcement comes on the heels of a similar deal in the United States, also announced Tuesday. There, three service providers — Verizon, Sprint and TimeWarner Cable_ have agreed with New York state officials to block child pornography sites nationwide."

Those of you who are ready to accept censorship over the issue of child pornography are paving the way for your own suppression. You know how it goes: first they came on behalf of the children, then...
