A top EU technocrat has threatened Elon Musk with “sanctions” if he allows free speech on Twitter, asserting that the billionaire has not ‘behaved in a decent way’.
The comments were made by EU Commission VP for Values and Transparency Vera Jourova at the annual Davos meeting of globalists.
“The time of the Wild West is over,” Jourova told EuroNews. “We will have the Digital Services Act [DSA]. We will have the Code of Practice as a part of this legislation.”
“So, after Mr Musk took over Twitter with his ‘freedom of speech absolutism,’ we are the protectors of freedom of speech as well,” she added. “But at the same time, we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on. So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise there will be sanctions.”
Jourova’s justification is a complete misnomer because illegal content is already banned on Twitter. She is obviously trying to conflate illegal content with offensive speech in an attempt to make the two indistinguishable.

In a separate video interview, Jourova suggested that Musk had not ‘behaved’ in a ‘decent’ way like his predecessors at Twitter. In other words, he refused to bend the knee to globalists who want their draconian censorship agenda to be re-imposed.
“We have the rules which have to be complied with and otherwise there will be sanctions,” barked Jourova, an unelected bureaucrat.
Jourova previously attracted controversy at Davos for predicting that America would soon have similar ‘hate speech’ laws to Europe, effectively calling for the elimination of the First Amendment.
“Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law,” Jourova said.
Throughout the elitist summit, technocrats pushed the idea that there needs to be a continuing crackdown on “hate and misinformation,” a contrived justification designed to censor speech which is critical of their own agenda to create a new world order.
