Count Dankula's Court Hearings

Post V95.43XD on Sun 7 Jan - 22:56

Maybe I missed it, but it seems that there are no threads yet on the notorious Pug Nazi of Youtube fame. Or rather the owner's boyfriend, Meecham.

The court is dragging its wheels on and on, and from an American standpoint it is absurd. Not only absurd in intentional delaying of the verdict, but that someone could be sentenced for what was said in a video. We have two amendments to protect ourselves from that scenerio.

I remember it. Here's a recent report:
http://metro.co.uk/2018/01/05/man-taught-dog-nazi-salutes-convicted-hate-crime-7207577/

Prosecutors allege he communicated material that would cause fear and alarm and stir up hatred on religious grounds by posting a clip which was ‘anti-semitic in nature’ to YouTube.
I disagree.

He also faces an alternative charge of posting a video on social media and YouTube which was grossly offensive because it was ‘anti-semitic and racist in nature’ . . .
I can't see a defence against that charge.

. . . and the prosecution claimed it was aggravated by religious prejudice.
No, I don't think so.

So he's just done something 'grossly offensive'. Could he not be charged with anything at all under U.S. law?

No, our hate speech laws are put into check by our free speech federal law.

How it went, straight from the horse's mouth.

Very Happy No wonder he laughs. I still think he'll get something for causing offence though.

Have you all seen this video?



A lot of people are defending him on the grounds of free speech but I think it's a quite a big overreaction. Imagine if, in the days before the internet, there was a TV company that had a nationally broadcast programme where they showed a compilation of home videos that the public had sent in. The videos shown where chosen at random without any censorship or editing. Then you see one very much like Dankula's where a man is training a dog to raise its paw and constantly repeats 'Gas the Jews. Gas the Jews.' I think it is fair to say there would be lot of complaints and demands that very offensive videos were stopped or edited.

I think the internet has raised people's expectations of free speech but it's a thin line between liberty and anarchy. If YouTube cannot be made responsible for what they broadcast then there has to be laws to deter the individuals who upload them from causing offence. I'm against censorship of political speech but there has to be some limits on what can pass as entertainment.
