Germans opposing immigration on Facebook, facing jail, fines, kids stolen and job loss



Germans who make racist anti-migrant posts could have their children snatched by the state and be fired from their jobs, according to the German Lawyers’ Association.

In an article entitled Racism and parenting: Threatening loss of custody?, lawyer Eva Becker, Chair of the Working Group on Family Law in the German Bar Association, outlines the conditions under which “xenophobic” Facebook posts could lead to parents being targeted.

Although Becker asserts that merely opposing the settlement of migrants in Germany would not lead to parental rights being terminated, such views could easily lead to someone being fired from their job.

Expressing a desire for violence against the migrants would constitute evidence enough for a family court to remove children from the home, according to Becker.

While this appears to be a high bar, idle threats of violence are made by countless people on the Internet every day, with the vast majority going completely unpunished.

Given the apparent cover-up of rapes being committed by “migrants” in Germany, the notion of an irate father making violent comments in a ‘heat of the moment’ Facebook rant is entirely plausible. Although such comments are obviously abhorrent, should they really lead to children being taken away from their parents by the state?

Becker suggests that racist and xenophobic statements made in the presence of a child that constitute a “negative influence” would also be investigated by the authorities.

Becker advises ex-partners to collect screenshots of Facebook comments and other Internet activity if they are considering bringing a case before the family court.

As we highlighted yesterday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was caught on a hot mic discussing plans with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to censor anti-migrant Facebook posts in Germany.

“Are you working on this?” Merkel asked. “Yeah,” Zuckerberg responded before their microphone was cut.

Those found guilty of “refugee baiting” remarks will be hit with fines up to €5000 euros or 120 days in jail. The program will be overseen by Network Against Nazis (Netz gegen Nazis), a group led by left-wing activist Anetta Kahane.

As we previously reported, Kahane worked as a Stasi informant under the codename “Victoria” from 1974-1982. The Stasi’s role was to spy on the population of East Germany and to use its vast network of informants to hunt down political dissidents.

Indian PM Narendra Modi Gets Emotional Talking About His Mom

During the hour-long Q&A session at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California, campus, Modi fielded several questions about the potential of social media and his thoughts on women’s empowerment. But it was one query in particular, posed by Zuckerberg himself, that elicited the strongest response from the Indian prime minister.

“I understand that your mother is very important in your life so I’m hoping you’ll tell us more about her,” Zuckerberg said.

Modi went on to speak about his impoverished childhood, and how his mom struggled to make ends meet.

“When we were small, what we used to do to get by … was that we used to go to our neighbors’ houses … to clean the dishes, fill water, do hard chores,” Modi said, his voice quavering. “So you can imagine what a mother had to do to raise her children, what she had to go through.”

He added that this wasn’t just the “case with Narendra Modi. In India, there are hundreds and thousands of mothers like that … mothers who’ve sacrificed their entire lives for their children.”

Modi’s Facebook session was reportedly well-received by the 1,200 people in attendance. FirstPost reports that the town hall ended with a standing ovation for the Indian leader.

The Q&A, however, has also been met with some criticism. Quartz.com, for instance, slammed the event for being too light on substance.

Modi’s Facebook appearance comes during the politician’s whirlwind tour of Silicon Valley that has included meetings with the CEOs of Apple, Google, Tesla and other leading tech companies.

The prime minister’s West Coast trip also comes hot on the heels of a similar visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping. Just last week, Xi was in Seattle meeting with several tech leaders, including Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

Australian tribunal finds workplace bully who unfriended colleague on Facebook guilty of bullying

Image

    

Deleting a friend on Facebook could have serious consequences, after an Australian work tribunal found a woman in Tasmania, who unfriended a colleague on the social network following an argument, guilty of workplace bullying.

The Fair Work Commission ruled that Lisa Bird, who works at the View estate agency in Launceston, was guilty of bullying sales administrator Rachel Roberts. Bird was accused of showing a “lack of emotional maturity” for having the nerve not to say “good morning” to her colleague and subsequently deleting her from Facebook.

Bird decided to unfriend Roberts after an argument. Roberts had complained that Bird, the wife of the agency’s principle, James Bird, had acted aggressively towards her in order to put her down in front of the other workers. Bird called Roberts a “naughty little schoolgirl for running to the teacher.”

Roberts subsequently wanted to check the social network to see if her work colleague had written anything on the platform about the altercation. However, Roberts found that Bird had decided to delete her altogether.

“The ‘schoolgirl’ comment… is evidence of an inappropriate dealing with Ms Roberts which was provocative and disobliging. I am of the view that Mrs Bird took the first opportunity to draw a line under the relationship with Ms Roberts on 29 January 2015, when she removed her as a friend on Facebook as she did not like Ms Roberts and would prefer not to have to deal with her,” the tribunal stated, as cited by the News.com.au.

Other complaints listed by Roberts include Mrs Bird failing to say hello to her in the morning and for not giving her copies of printouts, which were given to all the other staff members.

However, legal experts have stopped short of saying that deleting someone from Facebook automatically constitutes bullying.

“The Fair Work Commission didn’t find that unfriending someone on Facebook constitutes workplace bullying,” Josh Bornstein, a lawyer at the firm Maurice Blackburn, told ABC News.

“What the Fair Work Commission did find is that a pattern of unreasonable behavior, hostile behavior, belittling behavior over about a two-year period, which featured a range of different behaviors including berating, excluding and so on, constituted a workplace bullying.”

India’s Modi set to woo tech companies in Silicon Valley

By Yasmeen Abutaleb

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has documented his push to bring U.S. investments and jobs back to India on his Facebook and Twitter pages since landing in the United States this week, posting photos with the likes of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and group shots with Fortune 500 CEOs.

This weekend, his followers can expect a flurry of photos with tech leaders as he visits Silicon Valley and is due to meet with executives from Google Inc, Facebook Inc, Apple Inc and Tesla Motors.

Much of his agenda, aimed at deepening ties with the U.S. tech sector, will also focus on connecting with Silicon Valley’s Indian diaspora.

While Modi is likely to be received like a rock star in an area that is home to many of the world’s biggest high-tech firms, some groups have protested his arrival and urged tech companies to boycott the visit.

The groups include Sikhs for Justice, which has called on its members to picket Facebook headquarters during a Facebook town hall, and the Alliance for Justice and Accountability.

Modi has been criticized for not doing enough to stop 2002 religious riots in the Indian state Gujarat that killed about 1,000 people, mostly Muslims, when he was chief minister of the state. He has vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

Modi is the first Indian leader to visit the U.S. West Coast in more than 30 years. His trip follows one by Chinese President Xi Jinping, who met with several tech leaders in Seattle earlier this week.

The Indian leader has said he sees the digital economy as crucial to bringing more growth and tech jobs to India.

Modi boasts an average 87 percent approval rating in India and he has more than 30 million “likes” on Facebook and 15 million Twitter followers, making him the second-most followed world leader after U.S. President Barack Obama.

On Saturday, he was scheduled to attend a dinner with 350 business leaders to discuss the world economy and its impact on India.

Satya Nadella, Sundar Pichai and Shantanu Narayen, the Indian-born CEOs of Microsoft Corp, Google and Adobe Systems Inc, respectively, were among those due to moderate a panel discussion before Modi delivers a speech at the dinner.

Modi is also expected to meet with Apple CEO Tim Cook and visit Tesla headquarters. On Sunday, he was to visit Facebook and Google headquarters before appearing at an event at the San Jose Convention Center.

Dogs located at the back of New Berrima General Store & Post Office. This little guy is starting to look emancipated. his ribs are showing. I guarantee you he would also have worms and flees. I doubt he has ever had flea control in his life. He only goes for walks maybe once every few months.Alison Layton I’m confused why they have dogs if that’s their attitude! Do they keep the dogs there all the time or take them home with them once the shop shuts?

Chris For months I have been parking on my front lawn, because the shop owner asked me not to park out on the road, because it harder for his customers to drive in for petrol. I am now going to start parking properly out on the front of my place again. if I get any damage to my car, I will know the shop owners have done it, or got someone else to do it. They have many trucky friends so asking a truck driver to drive into the side of my car and make it look like an accident, wont be a big thing for them.. even if they do damage my car, it will still sit right in that spot. I will just buy another vehicle to drive. always worried about getting a ticket from the council for parking on the lawn anyway.

Karen’s General Store owner in New Berrima , Geoff Hanratty, keeps driving down the wrong side of the road.Even on weekends when he brings out his orange brown Harley Davidson cruiser, he roars down the street, on the wrong side of the road.I am very afraid for my children getting run over by this poor excuse of a human being.

I have called Bowral Police and they are now aware of him.

Geoff Hanratty, stop blaming residents for your poor plannin

Postby Bowral NSW » Fri May 22, 2015 8:09 pm

hey Guys,
A Council member informed me today that Karen Hanratty (General store owners) went to the Wingecarribee Council today to submit a request for No Parking Signs along Argyle street, so semi trailers can easily drive down and fill up..1) Firstly, isn’t the General Store owner pumping gas on council road property?2) General Store clients all parking illegally in the middle of the road. I’ve seen young children nearly get run over in that spot many times.

3) Isn’t it about time Wingecarribee Council get up to date with new planning policies and start doing something about no road rules, no parking rules, and no pumping gas rules on a public street?

4) And please get rid of that illegal steel barrier that the General Store setup in the middle of the road…. that is why the trucks cannot squeeze in to fill up… Geoff Hanratty, stop blaming residents for your poor planning! YOU CRETIN 3:-O

5) These Halfwits have known someone is going to build next to them one day.. so why haven’t they planned for it all these years? Geoff Hanratty, get of your fat ass and move the petrol pump, so trucks can drive up your driveway and fill up.. or, get rid of that steel barrier that is a danger, so trucks have room to fill up.. :(|)

I was waiting for my order one time sitting out the front of the shop. I saw Karen’s General Store owner, Geoff Hanratty talking to his youngest daughter, also sitting outside of the shop, that he wished he could put parking meters all out the front of the shop, so he can charge his customers for parking. It’s not enough that he gets permission to use council public road and footpath for filling trucks and cars… this guy wants more.Don’t you just love a money hungry pig :o)

Poor old girl (Jack Russell) really struggling in this cold weather -1 degrees at night.She is staying in the dog house even through the day. I suspect she sleeps through the day because its too cold to sleep through the night time… and if she falls asleep at night, she wont wake up to see another day.it makes me so angry how red necks are allowed to keep animals.

Katie Hanratty bought one of the dogs a black studded collar, all she thinks about is how tough her dog looks.
But she doesn’t think how cold and hungry her dogs feel every night. She could of at least bought her dogs something warm, like an electric doggy mattress or insulated the dog house from the -1 degree weather we have.

You cannot teach red necks compassion and love for animals… they either have it , or they don’t.

They wont even buy their own dogs coats for the freezing cold weather, especially at nights when it gets below zero.I have noticed an old dog coat the stays hanging on the fence, but it is never put on the dogs.. I assume the dog coat must sit there in case the RSPCA visits.

the poor family that has to live in 23 Argyle street New Berrima, next door to the New Berrima Store / Post Office :-sif you walk up to No. 23 front door on a warm day, you will get a very strong smell of dog feces… enough to make you vomit.New Berrima store owners (Hanratty family) have never ever cleaned up their dogs feces in years. You can tell they are filthy people by how run down the New Berrima Store is looking today… inside and out.

Wingecarribee Council, has never ever had a food inspector visit the store, because they are more corrupt than the NSW police force.

Police were called again.

Madison, WI — Thomas Smith, 27, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for leaving negative remarks on a local police department’s Facebook page back in 2012. After fighting the charges with his own lawsuit, Smith was recently awarded a $35,000 settlement because his rights were violated by the arrest.

The feud between Smith and the police began after he left a number of comments on a police department facebook page. In a comment thread started by Officer Nicholas Stroik, another Facebook user identified Stroik as a racist and said he had expressed that African-American people “don’t belong in his town.”

Smith then posted two comments in response, saying “Fuck the fucking cops they ant shit but fucking racist basturds an fucking all of y’all who is racist” and “Fuck them nigers bitchs wat you got on us, not a dam thing so fuck off dicks.” [Spelling in original].

Smith’s posts, along with any other posts criticizing the police were quickly deleted. However, soon after, he was contacted by police who asked him if he had made the comments. When he admitted to exersizing his right to free speech, he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and unlawful use of a computer.

After he was arrested, Smith told the police “I put it on there, I don’t regret it and I mean it.” He was subsequently banned from using a computer or phone.

The prosecution argued that Smith’s posts were not protected by free speech because they were classified as “fighting words.”

Initially, Smith was convicted and was sentenced to a year of probation and 25 hours of community service.

But shortly after, he ended up winning the case on appeal and having the convictions thrown out. The appeals court ruled that the “fighting words” doctrine only applies when the two parties are within close proximity to one another.

“In our country, we are entitled to criticize our government with passion, The use of some four-letter words in the course of doing so is never a crime,” Smith’s attorney, Thomas Aquino said in a statement.

Unfriending God on Facebook

2015-09-24-1443093246-5828775-prayerhands.jpg

It wasn’t the first time I woke up to something like this on my Facebook newsfeed: “Grandma is sick and we’re not sure how long she has… Please keep her in your thoughts and send prayers our way.”

Maybe I was just cranky from the 6 a.m. back-to-school schedule we’re on, but I wondered if Grandma would be upset that her privacy had been violated. I also wondered if Grandma had an active presence on social media. Is it okay to ask 500 friends (mostly strangers, if we’re being honest) for such personal favors? Maybe it’s no big deal? Even at this early hour of the morning, several followers pledged their prayers for grandma, and I wondered why I wasn’t doing the same, which was already too much pre-sunrise thinking for me.

I don’t know the friend who asked for prayers very well. In fact, like many of our friends on Facebook, I haven’t spoken with her in about 30 years. But there we are liking each other’s photos and pretending we have some semblance of a grasp on each other’s lives. If comments and “likes” on a prayer request make someone else’s day, why not oblige? Sending my prayers seemed kind of personal, especially because I tend to reserve them for private matters, but it probably wouldn’t hurt… Generally I avoid asking too much of God, as I know that he/she is already cutting me way more slack than I deserve.

Facebook is used in many valid as well as ridiculous ways, and each of us has a rigid opinion on what’s appropriate. But I think we can all agree that our hundreds (sometimes thousands) of friends, are not really “friends.”

On the morning of Yom Kippur eve, a global pre-holiday apology flashed across my Facebook newsfeed: “Dear Friends and Family: On this day of atonement, I’m asking for your forgiveness for anything hurtful that I may have done in the past year…”

And she was not alone. I saw several such posts throughout the day. For Jews, Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year. It’s the day that we are closest to God and ask forgiveness for our sins through reflection, repentance and fast. I’m pretty sure that regardless of how observant we may or may not be, a Facebook post that resembles a chain letter, does not absolve us of sin or discharge our obligation to sincerely repent. I almost expected to see a line promising seven years of bad luck if you don’t repost…

Have we gone too far?

Before Facebook became a bulletin board for repentance, I thought prayer requests were taking it too far. Now I’m not so sure. Maybe there’s no harm in asking strangers for good karma, especially, if it hurts no one and makes the recipient feel good. Contrary to my public blogging persona, I’m intensely private, and would have a hard time asking hundreds of people for prayers. Just because I don’t do it, doesn’t mean it’s wrong and I understand that in times of need, this easy access to others serves a purpose. I also believe in the power of collective consciousness — I’m just not convinced that Facebook comments can stir the desired divine effect.

This is the first time I’ve seen public apologies on Facebook, and I can’t shake the feeling that now I’ve seen it all. Public apologies not only take it too far, but distort the meaning of dedicating ourselves to atonement. Jews are commanded to fast for 25 hours on Yom Kippur — it’s not supposed to be easy. It’s supposed to be personal and sincere. A Facebook post makes a mockery of the human interaction, reconciliation and earnest reflection that should be taking place. An apology should not be a global one-way message — it should be heartfelt and maybe hurt a little. If you really think you’ve wronged someone, shouldn’t you deliver the message personally and accept the consequences of the response? Maybe they have something to say? Maybe, also, you should be good to yourself and be present to accept and embrace the forgiveness that may be offered? Otherwise it’s nothing but a distorted perception of a discharged obligation.

Mass spirituality on social media is a dilution of true reflection. Perhaps it’s time to unfriend God on Facebook and keep him in your soul where he belongs.

The Washington Post, owned by tech entrepreneur Jeff Bezos, is among the high-profile partners added to Facebook’s “Instant Articles”, which aims to deliver news articles over the speedier social network, where many people already get news

The Washington Post said Tuesday it would provide all its content for Facebook’s “Instant Articles” service as the social network expands efforts to partner with news organizations.

The US daily, owned by tech entrepreneur Jeff Bezos, was among the latest high-profile partners added to the program, which aims to deliver news articles over the social network, where many people already get news.

“The Post will send 100 percent of its stories to Facebook so that all Washington Post content can be formatted as Instant Articles, giving readers a lightning-fast user experience for reading, sharing and commenting within the Facebook iOS app,” said a statement from the newspaper.

“We want to reach current and future readers on all platforms and we aren’t holding anything back,” said Fred Ryan, publisher of the Post.

“Launching Instant Articles on Facebook enables us to give this extremely large audience a faster, more seamless reading experience.”

Facebook, which began a small-scale rollout of Instant Articles earlier this year, said it was adding “over a dozen additional partners” to the program.

They include the Huffington Post, MTV, Vox and Time Inc.

The launch partners announced earlier included The New York Times, BuzzFeed, BBC, the Guardian, NBC News, National Geographic, Atlantic, Bild and Spiegel.

Facebook software engineer TR Vishwanath said in a blog post that the program “isn’t just about delivering a fast experience—it also extends the possibilities for interactive articles on mobile phones with new features like autoplay video, audio captions, and interactive maps.”

He said Facebook has been testing Instant Articles “with a small percentage of people on Facebook” to get feedback and will be expanding the number of people who can use it.

“We will bring additional publishers onboard in the coming months and we look forward to extending the Instant Articles program in the future so that any content publisher or blog can create great article experiences on Facebook.”

Naked clown activists issue apology to Palestinians after protesting at wall separating Israel with West Bank

File photo of Palestinian protestors breaking the wall in the West Bank

File photo of Palestinian protestors breaking the wall in the West BankA group of nude Spanish activists who staged a protest at the wall separating Israel and the West bank – while wearing nothing but clown noses – have apologised after offending Palestinians.

Members of the group Pallasos en Rebedia, which translates to Clowns in Rebellion, bared all in solidarity with people living in the occupied territories.

However, after the group published the images on Facebook, they suffered a backlash from Palestinians and supporters of their plight over their unusual campaign tactics, according to The Local.

Some Facebook users commented “shame on them” while others asked if the nudity was necessary and said they should consider that the Muslim community in Palestinian territories may have “different principles”.

The group justified their actions, saying “when you stand before this shameful wall, all humanity is naked”.

However, the group later issued an apology on Facebook to “any Palestinians who may feel offended by our action against the wall of shame that pierces the West Bank and every human heart”.

“This is not an attack on Islam, it is our way of protesting [against] the existence of the wall,” Iván Prado, spokesman for the group added.
