Hamburg prosecutors say managing director may be held responsible for social platform’s alleged failure to remove hate speech

Prosecutors in Hamburg have launched an investigation into the European head of Facebook over the social platform’s alleged failure to remove racist hate speech, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor has said.

The move was announced on Tuesday as German politicians and celebrities voiced concern about the rise of xenophobic comments in German on Facebook and on other social media as the country struggles to cope with the influx of about 1 million refugees this year.

Facebook’s Hamburg-based managing director for northern, central and eastern Europe, Martin Ott, may be held responsible for the social platform not removing hate speech, the spokeswoman for the city’s prosecutor said. “We are at a very early stage,” she added.

Last month the prosecutor launched an investigation into three other Facebook managers for the same issue.

Be radical, have principles, be absolute, be that which the bourgeoisie calls an extremist: give yourself without counting or calculating, don't accept what they call ‘the reality of life' and act in such a way that you won't be accepted by that kind of ‘life', never abandon the principle of struggle.

Now we can expect these while using Facebook in Germany:

1. If you like the PEGIDA Facebook page, then your account will get deleted.

2. If you post that "I am afraid of immigrants", then you will receive an official warning from the Bereitschaftspolizei.

3. In case you decline a friend request from any Syrian or Afghan immigrant, you will be immediately detained, and transferred to the Stasi.

I know, you are a troll, but I will answer anyway:
like the PEGIDA Facebook page
That's not hate speech.
post that "I am afraid of immigrants"
That's not hate speech.
decline a friend request from any Syrian or Afghan immigrant
That's not hate speech.

This would be hate speech:
"All jews and moslems should be killed."

Well, it´s a bit late for Germans to be afraid of immigrants since they´ve been busy receiving them for decades. All the way from the Gastarbeiter of the 60s and 70s.  About 20% of residents or about 16 million people are of immigrant or partial immigrant descent. There´s some racism no doubt, it´s everywhere but it´s hardly any big issue.

Most of these "Gastarbeiter" are actually ethnic Germans originally from countries such as Russia, Kazakhstan, Romania, and Poland. If you exclude them, the non German Gastarbeiter might be less than one-third of this number. When compared to France and the United Kingdom, the number of non-whites in Germany used to be quite low.... that is, until Merkel opened the floodgates.

Well, I guess "ethnic" Germans that have lived for centuries in other countries are immigrants when they take up residence in Germany. Don´t know what else to call them.

Actually 20% of residents don´t even have a German passport.
