Inside Spotify's new “hate content” policy: What's next?

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

Let's be honest: 90 per cent of today's pop music is crap. That's why I use Spotify:

To create playlists of older songs.

Spotify recently announced that they're removing music by certain artists, under pressure from a women's group. And now they've revealed a new “hate content” policy.

Where will this end? Why not let me decide whether or not I listen to "problematic" performers like Eminem?

Why do people use services like this for music anyways? All my tunes fit on a thumb drive for listening to in my truck , or on a portable player for that type of use, why the hell do you need a web service anyways??? No one controls what i listen to.

If they’re allowed to start controlling the music, it’s just a foot in the door to controlling free speech, whether you listen to these artists or their genre of music makes no difference. At some point your freedoms will be impacted. I don’t like their music and don’t listen to it but if their music is being removed from circulation, yours won’t be far behind. It’s “Big Brother” expanding their control.

My music goes back to the late 50s through to the early 70s so none of this affects me directly, but the principle of free speech still stands. If I don’t defend speech (or music) I don’t like, then I can’t complain when PC police come to silence me. Free speech is the one freedom on which every other freedom stands or falls. Lose that and we’ve lost the war. It’s worth dying for.

This is all about control. The Marxist movement in this Country has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years, using useful idiots like Justin Trudeau, they take peoples minds by taking away what people like and replacing it with their own propaganda. Their Soldiers are the Muslims that we now see around us.
We need to fight back against these scum. Now.

The music police will expand their outrage as soon any appeasement strategies are followed….they will go after Gospel music, musicians who sing about their love of God and country, music which doesn’t meet with leftist regressive approval. Marxists are always moving the goal posts.

I don’t like rap, death metal or hip hop, I simply don’t listen to it….problem solved.
