Chancellor Angela Merkel railed against free speech in the German parliament, declaring that freedom of expression which offends “the dignity of other people” must be censored to secure a truly free society.

“We have freedom of expression,” the migrant crisis architect began dubiously, in a speech to the German federal parliament, or Bundestag, uploaded to social media by state broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW).

The article goes on to state the following:

“For all those who claim that they can no longer express their opinion, I say this to them: If you express a pronounced opinion, you must live with the fact that you will be contradicted. Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost!” she warned ominously, to applause from the assembled politicians.

Merkel then added the line that raised many eyebrows: “But freedom of expression has its limits. Those limits begin where hatred is spread. They begin where the dignity of other people is violated! This house will and must oppose extreme speech. Otherwise our society will no longer be the free society that it was.”

Donald Trump Jr. responded to a video of Merkel’s speech by tweeting, “Wow… well at least they’re not even pretending anymore. The left will stop at nothing till they have full control of how you’re allowed to think.”
