When we talk about certain things, we should know that there will be some who are offended. But, what if we are sharing a news story with our friends? We should not expect that an article on a news site would cause our post to be deleted. In a way, one would expect that this would be considered censorship. And it is happening in Europe at an alarming rate.
Reddit moderators are deleting links to a story about a 22-year old female refugee worker in Sweden who was stabbed to death by a teenage migrant
Yesterday, news emerged that Alexandra Mezher, an employee of an asylum accomodation centre in Gothenburg, Sweden had been killed. The 22-year old was taken to a nearby hospital after being stabbed by a resident of the asylum centre, but died of her wounds.
Once again, there is the issue of migrants and European women. And they cannot ignore the fact that these people are attacking the very ones seeking to help them. This young lady was working at a place that was set up specifically for housing and feeding migrants.
These kinds of calls are becoming more and more common. We’re dealing with more incidents like these since the arrival of so many more refugees from abroad,” police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg said.
The attack came as National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson on Monday requested 4,100 additional officers and support staff to help fight terrorism, carry out migrant deportations and police asylum accommodations.
“We are forced to respond to many disturbances in asylum reception centres. In some places, this takes significant police resources. This was not the case six months ago, and it means that we won’t be able to respond as effectively in other areas,” Eliasson told Swedish news agency TT.
What is worse is that there are efforts to cover up this epidemic. And why? It should be clear that these monitors or their superiors wish to keep ordinary Europeans in the dark.
Despite the story’s relevance to the migrant crime wave sweeping Europe, a story that has attracted widespread interest on social media, users on Reddit encountered difficulties trying to share the link on the site. The latest censorship controversy took place on /r/worldnews, a subreddit that ostensibly encourages links to news stories from non-English speaking countries like Sweden.
The moderators of /r/worldnews are becoming notorious for their attempts to suppress links to stories about migrant crime on the subreddit. Earlier this month, when news of the suspected migrant sexual assault epidemic in Germany began to spread, /r/worldnews moderators went on a censorship spree, culling threads and deleting hundreds of comments about the attacks.
And though Reddit (an online bulletin board for social media, news, and entertainment) will not account for their actions publicly, it is likely they will give the same excuse that Facebook has in Germany.
Reddit is not the only social media platform whose elites are at odds with the interests of ordinary users with regards to the European migrant crisis.
Breitbart Tech recently reported on Germany’s plans to work with Facebook to censor “hate speech” on the platform. No doubt the moderators of /r/worldnews are concerned about hate speech too — it’s explicitly banned on the subreddit. But as always, the line between “hate” and justified anger at the policies of European elites is is a fuzzy one.
In reality, if the ordinary European knew the price they and their fellow citizens were paying for this migrant invasion, they would demand change. And this more than anything is the real reason for bringing down the posts and comments.
