he's making the killing of millions of jewish people by slowly suffocating them, a joke, and repeats it over and over...


No, the joke is he knows it's horrendous and is using that to piss off his girlfriend... That's the joke. That is comedy.

Some has shock value, some find it distasteful.

But let's not act like there isn't hundreds of stand up comics who have distasteful Jewish bits many could find offensive.

If you don't like certain speech, then don't consume it. But we can't go around silencing things we don't like.

This is tyranny and injustice within a supposed liberal democracy. But as has usually been the case, the lack of outrage over this and other tyrannies of this sort testify to the slow death of free speech, and the human rights, democracy, and liberal tradition it necessarily supports.


ah geez, sparky, get a grip......don't keep repeating "gas the jews" on a public forum, that's it.....he's making the killing of millions of jewish people by slowly suffocating them, a joke, and repeats it over and over......not exactly an end of freedom of speech.....maybe, JUST MAYBE...there are so many stupid people that would take that seriously, due to the RECENT ACTUAL HISTORY of a lot of stupid people, TAKING IT SERIOUSLY AND BEING FINE WITH IT.


Yeah? Do you get the urge to fire up the gas chambers when hearing it?


of course not....and neither would you, and most others....but last year there were a bunch of Nazi's carrying tiki torches openly chanting about getting rid of the jews....you don't think that mob would?.....there are southerners that still talk about lynching ni***rs....you, of all people, should have an understanding of "mob" psychology, raising fear, and promoting paranoia of the "other".....


Yes and there were trump suppoorters beaten time and time again.

There was a white kid with leanring disabilities kidnapped and tortured while being screamed at about donald trump.

So I assume you will be calling for the arrest of John Oliver, John stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Kathy Griffin, and the countless other offensive jokes made about trump and his supporters by people on the left.

But know, we already know the truth. You feell things that offend you should be criminal and should be said could lead to violence, but offensive things said about people you dont like is perfectly fine.

Funny, I dont see these people cheering for this guys arrest calling for the arrest of left wing comedians that say offensive things that could lead to violence.

I feel that free speech should allow any jokes on any side, and not only have fdefnded vulgar comedians on the left, but find many of them quite funny.

But again, we see that the people one the left, only they should be allowed to tell offensive jokes, anyone welse must be censored


If we look through history and find people being arrested, lynched, jailed, or even executed for saying something “grossly offensive”, we’ll find that most of them were the powerless speaking against the established order. Those who shrug at this are part of the established order, the type who shrugged when the enabling act was instituted, when witches were burned, and did nothing when their fellow citizens were sent to gas chambers.

it's a total joke man !

we should all challenge this # , I hate to use a slippery slope logical fallacy here but we have history to back us up!

if we are outlawing hate speech in any form , what is to stop them then defining any political dissidence as hate speech
or illegal speech

its only a matter of time, before we the people cant openly criticise government , and we will be living in a totalitarian nightmare ruled by the conservative party , or whatever they decide to call themselves , unless of course the monarchs make a come back

The argument given to me for this law is it isnt right to stand outside a shop yelling jewish slurs. Id assume disturbing the peace covers that. But nonetheless....


....this was a dudes youtube. You had to be willing to see it. He wasnt standing in your face....a simple mouse click stops the offense.

The next contentious election i suspect folks will regret supporting this.

m.imdb.com...


The British used to enjoy a good satire?

So where do we draw the line , isnt basically the news media hate speech ,
when they report the news of hate speech , they themselves are perpetuating the message of hate by giving it air time right ?

or war propaganda , when we are shown images of the military blowing # up in foreign countries you are ultimately producing propaganda to encourage others to "hate" the enemy

Even without laws, the ball is moving in that direction.

Look at how the media makes excuses for the violence or censorship against right wing people on campuses. Look at how social media companies are censoring people from the right and left that are critical of the establishment.

Look at how mainstream it is becoming to say its ok to enact violence on Nazis, and then calling anyone they disagree with nazis.

Well it looks like in the UK, that same pattern will now be taken into the law.

"We must arrest people that use offensive speech!" Ok sounds good, who are these people?

"Anyone I disagree with!" But what if people you agree with say the exact same type of things.

"Ah those are just harmless jokes!"

Its disgusting and dangerous, and its so sad to see how even on ats we have people cheering this on.

I've seen plenty of folks (both sides of the isle) equally outraged when you disagree on a political issue.

What happens when society not only gets used to certain lines of talking being silenced, but supports them?

One side gets power, and starts silencing the other.

That's where this goes, and for those who say that thought line is dramatic... We have plenty of countries to use as examples.

Its all about the zero tolerance, everybody-gets-to-be-offended wave that people are surfing right now. Hell, we have a bunch of middle eastern types saying our flag is offensive to them. And we have a bunch of lame brains who think we should take it down because of that!

Hmm well palastine and other Islamic country like Iran have called for death of jewish people, and killed many.

So I assume any jokes or talk favorable of them should be banned.

Funny how you straight up ignore how trump supporters have been attacked, yet you have no problem with anti trump jokes that are offensive.

You are arguing that a guy trying to shock his girlfriend by making a dog do a nazi salute will convince nazis to attack people.

The stupidity of this is astounding.

No matter what your political lean is, this is completely ridiculous.

I understand that many people may be offended by the Nazi salute, but I think the best way to undermine it's power and meaning is to mock it through comedy.

This is a matter of free speech and we should be quick to defend it, even when people use it to perpetuate their own stupidity.

Yes it is. Excuses of that sort—people worried speech will cause some type of horrific crime—were used to justify Nuremberg laws, to crack down on folks marching behind MLK. Hitler was one of the worse censors that ever existed. All people should be worried when governments adopt the tactics of the worst regimes in history.

Precisely. Fear of a topic gives it and it's supporters power.
