#1 Was he drunk as usual?

#2 I don't know about the drunk part, but I wouldn't be surprised. The meat of this is the threat to the pocketbook of Google, et al. And what's this? "Authorities" doing the flagging of content? That's a flaw, they will get bought. Or is that a feature?

On the other hand, as much as I despise the EC, I am in favor of anything that injures GoogleFacebookTwitter, even for a short time. Drag their managing staff to the International Criminal Court when they don't knuckle under. Bolton won't like that, but I can see the bounty hunters lining up. Progressive World Gov. vs. Progressive Oligarchs. Cheering for both sides to lose big.

In my dreams anyway.

#3 The capricious nature of our lords and ladies taxing policies. Don't mistake it for anything less. It's the Willy Sutton approach to revenue. Sort of fueled more than one major rebellion in the history books. Long past to tell the EU, if they are such big boys, to defend themselves and build their own net.

#4 ICANN went private once Obama 'freed' them from USG oversight.

"On October 1, 2016, ICANN ended its contract with the United States Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and entered the private sector.[54]

On May 25, 2018, the EU attempts to enforce its GDPR impact on ICANN operations.[clarification needed][citation needed] The deadline coincided with French President Macron's hosting of megatech bosses such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, Samsung President Young Sohn, and SAP CEO Bill McDermott."

#6 Google might suck but how much does EU suck if they have to censor Google?

Sounds like Juncker's been taking lessons from Xi Jinping.
