    ...and thank god I voted Leave. The sooner we get out this Soviet politically correct sh*thole of a Union, the better. Remember folks, the unelected EU Commission puts forward dumb laws and the EU Parliament just rubber stamps such laws.

    This is just censorship to stop critical thinking and real investigative journalism and free media.

    They want to control the internet, like they control the mainstream media internationally.

    For an example of what it means, Chinese memes are(were) very pun-based, because chinese is an exceedingly good language for punning with a long tradition of pun-based humor and it helped them get around pressure censorship software in the Great Firewall. In response China banned puns and wordplay, all of them, centuries of tradition be damned, because the memes could spread anti-party ideas.
