How do you feel about this:

Whats the point of this other than pure censorship? I have love YouTube and never heard of this guy up until this. Jailing a guy for making a Hitler joke on the internet seems awful to me. I had heard about censorship in the UK but never thought it was this Orwellian.

Will display of communist symbols land you in prison too? They murdered more people than the Nazis after all.

Exterminating Kulaks and deplorables is a noble practice.

As Russian originating from effectively “kulak” (literally “fist” in Russian, rich peasant – most of Cossacks fall into this category) family, I have not noticed I am exterminated :) And by the way next generation of the family (“kulak’s sons” in this terminology) were Communist Party members themselves.
Good luck criminalizing “display of communist symbols” –China is communist country officially :)

No need for censorship where stupidity is enough. Not so long ago there was a case in Russia of man accused of “Nazi symbols propaganda” for publishing this (but as far as I remember found not guilty)

No. Neither will seriously saying the same sort of things that Dankula joked about, but in a mosque as part of a sermon to the Umma. 

Neither will posting tweets about the rightousness of islamic terrorists. 

Neither will displaying flags to Hezbollah or ISIS. 

Heck, ISIS fighters can return to live in the UK without very much impediment.

If whst Dankula has been saying is even vaguely close to the truth, then this story highlights the utterly ridiculous nature of the law.

I note that the BBC article brings in Tommy Robinson as some kind of validation of tge verdict, but I see no evidence that Dankula welcomed that support.

Well, one might say, that this youtuber was successful in trolling the authorities by training his pug to raise the paw on command.  He demonstrated how silly and authoritarian and haphazard this "hatecrime" legislation is. And open to abuse.

 

Can he go to a higher level like a constitutional court for an appeal? Or was it that?

 

 

How much did this prosecution of this public enemy no. 1 cost Scotland in £?? How many workhours of the prosecution and the court has this taken up in the last about two years or so? Nothing better to do? :huh:

 

And what will his prison time cost the taxpayer?

 

 

Scotland is so much safer now!

Sorry mate, but you inflict this on yourselves with the annual ugliest people contest held on your island.  :P  ;)

Hows that law banning people from saying some poles were Nazi sympathizers working out? :)

Personally I wouldnt lock him up. Id get him scrubbing the steps of the local synagogue. Maybe they would find his nazi pug funny.

Either way you're good with forcing people to your way of thinking at the point of a gun.  I mean how else are you going to force somebody to do your bidding if you don't threaten their life?

I think it was Jerry Pournelle who used to use "We were free once" as a tag for this kind of story.
