I doubt this as well as it already happened and no district attorney filed a suit.


It's obviously inching closer and your "doubt" isn't reassuring. I'm pretty sure a lot of the Brits doubted it would happen too and oh lookie. Are you okay with all the free-speech shutdowns on campuses? They're flouting the constitution and getting backed on it.

Now, get your pointy hat and go sit with all the other Fasci-Socialists.

A YouTuber who taught his girlfriend's pet dog to give Nazi salutes in response to phrases such as "Sieg Heil" and "gas the Jews" has been found guilty of a hate crime.

Mark Meechan, of Coatbridge in Lanarkshire, was found guilty of communicating a "grossly offensive" video in a Scottish court on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old vlogger taught his girlfriend's pet pug to react to the phrase, which he repeated 23 times in a video seen by the court.

Meecham, a self-described "professional s*** poster" and free speech advocate, said the video had been taken out of context.


Some comedians have came to his defense.


Comedian Ricky Gervais rallied to Meecham's defence, writing on Twitter: "A man has been convicted in a UK court of making a joke that was deemed 'grossly offensive'.

"If you don't believe in a person's right to say things that you might find 'grossly offensive', then you don't believe in Freedom of Speech."


www.standard.co.uk...

Here is the youtube video he was convicted for. Skip to 1:10.



Well there you have it.

Dont offend someone in the UK, or you could face jail time. I love were the UK's priorities are.

They dont care if you are flying the isis flag in a documentary. (who then ended up being a terrorist in london) www.theguardian.com...

They dont want to investigate child grooming rape cases because they might seem racist. www.abovetopsecret.com...

But man on man, make an offensive joke, and they will get you. (or if you are conservative and not from the country, they wont let you in).

So much for free speech huh?

Time to round up John Cleese and the boys from monty Python, right?



And for those that think this is isolated to the UK, its just the latest first world country to criminalize humor and free speech.

Comedians have been being fined for hurting peoples feelings with jokes in Canada. nationalpost.com...

news.vice.com...

And in germany, they considered charging a person for insulting the leader of Turkey.

www.theatlantic.com...

And the censorship efforts on places like social media and campuses increase every day in the US. Its only a matter of time before laws are suggested that make offensive jokes a crime.

Lenny Bruce would be rolling in his grave.

So just a warning to all of the UK members, be careful watching that video or god forbid joking about it, you may just find yourself under arrest.



So cute, lol!!

Give me high 5 does the same thing with my pug.

My other dog does this to say good morning.

Burger is his own guy.

why the F is anything?

Oh, I heard the german accent of the owner.

That must be it.

So! German accent means nazi?!

How tolerant are you brits?

German shepherds don't really speak german.

English pugs speak Bs. I know.

They are just loud and rude.


Love em to death, tho.

Italian. We were known in the same time period — for being stupid enough to show up in a new country ‘With Out Papers’ WOP. Hence the reason most of us don’t bare our true last names.

I knew it was some sort of slander for Italian but never knew that it was an acronym!

Way cool (or I'm way slow) information.

While that whole gas the Jews thing may be a bit tasteless.

I think that that whole video and this whole thing is only for the most part just proof that pugs are pretty dam smart. I mean if he learned that whole paw up salute, and just from watching videos on the tube of old Nazi speeches and parades the guy made him watch, and while egging his little doggy brain on.

That's a pretty smart dog, as far as dogs go, cant even get my dog to sake paw even with a dam turkey leg waving over his nose. The whole thing is a bit humorous, even that he got in trouble over it. That to is humorous.

If you teach a parrot some horrible stuff, should you go to jail?

How about if that parrot was always a bastard, even before you bought it?

There's a pigeon comes by here everyday, gives me a Stalin eye. Can I poke that little devil's eyes out?

How about kids? My neighbour has some vile spawn, can we lock him up?

Actually, the colour of his house hurts me also, can we do something about that too?

Hindu's have used it for millenia but the Germans reversed it. Like the bible and the satanic version. When reversed it creates evil according to some ancient cultures.

It's very sad to witness the demise of British values. Can't say we were not warned, though. After two world wars, the Nazi's eventually managed to conquer these great lands through politics.

Any other UK members starting to feel like more and more members not from the UK seem to be posting stuff like this to antagonise???

The issue was not the dog the issue was the "Gas the Jews" comment, its not about saluting its about publishing a video of a guy repeatedly saying "Gas the Jews" over and over again.

He published this, its against the law in the UK to publishing anti-semitic material, the police state they had 160 pages worth of messages that supported the claim that this was anti-semitic and that was why they pursued this case. The gassing of jews is not in my view something that is funny I don't think this quite qualifies as a "joke". I don't actually think that this guy realised that what he was publishing was putting him at legal risk, I don't think he even thinks that it would lead to criminal prosecution.

The problem is that this has been viewed millions of times and as such that makes it a public interest matter. As such the police have to investigate, a crime has been committed because they have evidence to support that this was the publishing of material that stirs up religious hatred and it was found to be grossly offensive. Reading about this that is why the court found him guilty, they said that they believed he knew what he was doing would cause offence.

Hell outside the court afterwords the guy was interviewed by Tommy Robinson!

For me personally its not a free speech issue its the issue of deliberately publishing a video of a guy saying "gas the jews" over and over again.

I guess it comes down to do you agree with these laws or do you not agree with these laws, for me personally I am ok with Scottish laws relating to hate crimes. But then again I am not publishing videos training a dog to respond to "Gas the Jews"

Its a free speech issue.

Tasteless? Sure. Damaging? Only to someone willingly subjecting themselves to it.

Public interest? Those millions of views were all VOLUNTARY. It sounds like government wants to protect you from yourself.

Voltaire must be spinning in his grave.
