Vera Jourova, vice president of the European Commission for Values and Transparency, said on Tuesday at the World Economic Forum that the United States would "soon" have rules to penalize "illegal hate speech."

"Unlawful speech motivated by hatred, which may soon be a problem in the United States as well. I believe that there is a compelling justification for including this provision in the criminal legislation, "Jourova added.

According to what I reported on Tuesday, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) introduced a bill to the House of Representatives that'd make it a possible future "hate crime" for white people to criticize non-white people. Additionally, Senator Ben Cardin (D-Maryland) recently claimed that expressing "hate" is "not protected under the First Amendment."

The state of New York similarly approved a law in the previous year with the intention of stifling "hateful" speech that may be found online.

The proprietor of the New York Times, Arthur Sulzberger, spoke about the "existential" danger posed by "disinformation" while participating on the same panel at the World Economic Forum (WEF). He also said that those who criticize "fake news" remind him of Nazi Germany.
