“This house will and must oppose extreme speech,” says Merkel. What speech does she mean? Is she going to crack down on jihad plotting? Of course not.

In 2018, Germany enacted a strict ban on certain speech that elites of the day consider “hateful.” Under the new law, sites can be fined up to 50 million euros, around $55 million, for not promptly removing so-called “hate speech” from their platform.
