Shazam for Neo-Nazi Music

German police are building an app that will identify right-wing music:

Many themes and ideas can get media placed on the list including, “indecent, extremely violent, crime-inducing, anti-Semitic or racist material,” as well as “media content that glorifies National Socialism… and to media content that discriminates against specific groups of people.”

This is the law in Germany. And the Shazamming of the identification of these songs doesn’t really change the dynamics of its enforcement.

Germany has a unique history with intolerance, so I get why they do this.  So can we please stop hearing from them about their moral indignation over the NSA?
