The mayor of London read racist tweets about himself during SXSW as a plea for Facebook and Twitter to stop hate speech

At the annual SXSW festival in Austin on Monday, the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, made a moving plea for tech companies to take on hate speech.

During his talk, the mayor read racist tweets about himself.

"I say kill the mayor of London and you'll be rid of one Muslim terrorist," Khan read aloud. "I'd pay for someone to execute Sadiq Khan."

Khan, the first Muslim mayor of a Western capital city, said he read the half-dozen tweets or so not to "be portrayed as a victim" or "ask for sympathy," but to "illustrate that big tech has further to go in making the internet free of hate speech."

"But ask yourself this: What happens when young boys and girls from minority backgrounds see this kind of thing on their timelines or experience this themselves?" Khan said.

Khan said that tweets like the ones addressed to him send a message to these children that if they don't look a certain way or subscribe to the same establishment beliefs, they will grow up thinking there's no path for them in high-profile careers.

"We simply must do more to protect people online," Khan said.

Khan urged companies like Facebook and Twitter to show "a stronger duty of care" so that "social-media platforms can live up to their promises to connect, unify, and democratize the sharing of information and be places where everyone feels welcomed and valued."

The London mayor suggested that Facebook and Twitter remove offensive content and misinformation faster and face fines if they don't.

Who knew that the European Parliament could actually be useful? ;-)


The English Euro-Parliament member who introduces here and Lauren Southern made some good points.

Enforcement resources are being focused on people who have no criminal history, who have never committed an act of terror, who have never even advocated for an act of terror, yet hundreds of jihadi war fighters are let in and tens of thousands of Islamists extremists are in the country not able to be properly monitored due to a lack of resources.

Sargon weighs in on this:



A couple of interesting take aways on this video:
---as they were alleging that she was a "terorrist", they were able to question her for the first hour, without her being able to have an attorney present. Also, she could not refuse their questions (could not remain silent)
---After the first hour she was allowed to call a "solicitor" (attorney) but as she was being detained by British Border Control/police in Calais, France, there were no UK solicitors available to come represent her. That's a nice little conundrum there, now isn't it. :evil:

Somebody needs to make a "Hot Terror Chicks" calendar.

Of course he does.

Then he could enforce de facto blasphemy laws. Make it a crime to criticize Sharia & Islam. It's already begun happening in the UK. Now they want to export it to the digital realm, and nations beyond. This is the foot in the door to the expansion.

Don't give away free speech rights.

OMG, the totalitarian bullshit that the ruling bureaucracy has put Tommy Robinson through is appalling. :o

No wonder they've begun banning people attempting to let him tell his story to a wider audience!

No problem countries decide who's allowed to come in. USA won't allow islams. UK won't allow outspoken white women. We all have our prejudices.
