EZFKA PM Scott Morrison has announced new legislation allowing Twitter, Facebook and Google the right to censor Australian opinions on social media under the guise of fighting ‘trolls.’
Morrison said the new legislation will go that one step further and that ‘private companies can do anything we want them to for our mutual benefit.’
“This is all really just to protect us from any kind of mounting criticism on social media and prop up our legacy media mates, which we’ve been doing financially on steroids during COVID,” Morrison said.
“Of course, the adult thing to do when being trolled would just be to ignore and log off the computer. We can slag off anyone we want in parliament, we just don’t want you being able to defend yourselves. Kinda like the gun grab of 1996.”
“The sooner we can tie you to something you said that we don’t like, the better for us.”
President Xi Jinping has expressed his support for the legislation and has offered tech support for Morrison should he require it.
