And then Chavismo came for the social networks...

Conatel busca formas de “controlar el odio” en redes sociales, dijo Jorge Rodríguez (Conatel looks for ways to "control hatred" in social networks, said Jorge Rodríguez)

Translated from Spanish

"The Minister of Communication and Information of Venezuela, Jorge Rodríguez , announced on Monday, November 13 that the National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel) will prevent the proliferation of hate "politics" on social networks, within the framework of the Anti-Hate Law. that recently approved the ANC.

"We are establishing technological mechanisms to prevent hate policies from being maintained through social networks," said the minister, flanked by Education Minister Elías Jaua and Delcy Rodríguez , president of the National Constituent Assembly (ANC).

The head of Communication explained that Conatel will define ways to control these aspects on platforms such as Twitter or Facebook." As Conatel takes necessary control of public and private dissemination mechanisms will also act at the level of social networks, " he said.

Rodriguez said that many people "have been subjected to discrimination, have been subjected to escraches* (harassment), hatred, any type of event at odds with peaceful coexistence and those campaigns that are often disseminated by some kind of political motivation."



*escraches = a constituent giving a politician a "piece of their mind". A proper bawling out. It will cost a VZ voter about 20 years in prison in the New Improved Chavista Venezuela for embarrassing a Chavista in that manner.

1. Nothing arbitrary or capricious about the subjective implementation of these laws!

Article 22

Any radio or television service provider that broadcasts messages that constitute campaigns in favor of war or apology of hate based on nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, political or social affiliations, ideology, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and any other nature will be sanctioned and their concession will be revoked, in compliance with the procedure established in the Law of Social Responsibility on Radio, Television and Digital Media.

Article 20

Everyone who promotes or incites hate, discrimination or violence against an individual or a group of individuals, either publicly or through any other means, for their real or alleged association with any particular group based on social affiliation, ethnicity, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or any other discriminatory reason will be punished with ten to twenty years in prison, without prejudice of the civil and disciplinary responsibility for damages caused.

Don't worry. Chavismo will let you know if you cross the line...
