(Natural News) In order to ensure a successful global transformation into full-fledged tyranny and fascism, the First Amendment to the United States Constitution has to go, according to European Commission Vice President V?ra Jourová.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, this week, Jourová announced that the U.S. will “soon” pass laws to criminalize “hate speech,” which will effectively stamp out free speech once and for all.
Jourová’s statements were made during a session hosted by CNN‘s Brian Stelter called “The Clear and Present Danger of Disinformation.” Stelter, a fellow globalist, listened closely as Jourová laid out the globalist blueprints for the U.S. in 2023 and beyond.
“For hate speech, we need the people who understand the language and the case law in the country, because what qualifies as hate speech, illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S., we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourová said – watch below:

Jourová wants Big Tech to do more to censor free speech, using AI robots if necessary
One such proposed “hate speech” law was introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.). If passed, it would broadly reclassify all kinds of speech as “hate,” including all talk of “replacement theory,” or the planned globalist genocide of Americans, and specifically “white” Americans, for replacement with illegal aliens.
Jackson Lee’s bill states that a “person engages in a white supremacy inspired hate crime when white supremacy ideology has motivated the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of actions that constituted a crime or were undertaken in furtherance of activity that, if effectuated, would have constituted a crime.”
Those found guilty of violating the provisions of Jackson Lee’s bill face criminal penalties. Their “crimes” would cover “published material advancing white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory,’ or hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-White person or group, and such published material,” if it was “read, heard, or viewed by a person who engaged in the planning, development, preparation, or perpetration of a white supremacy inspired hate crime.”
This is music to the ears of Jourová, who also wants Big Tech platforms like Facebook and Twitter to get in on the action. Sure, social media is already a cesspool of rampant selective censorship, but Jourová wants there to be more of it.
If Jourová gets her way, Big Tech will continue to roll out new artificial intelligence (AI)-driven censorship tools to police every word and digital “thought” a person shares with the internet.
It is going to be a really tough sell getting any of this officially passed as law in the United States, though. The Supreme Court in 2017 made a unanimous ruling that the First Amendment and free speech cannot be regulated or interfered with under the guise of “hate speech.”
Justice Samuel Alito, who summed up the ruling, wrote:
“[The idea that the government may restrict] speech expressing ideas that offend … strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express ‘the thought that we hate.'”
