I don’t know how many of you are aware of the Count Dankula case and I’ll try to explain it in as little words as possible for normies to understand it, but I’m still kinda shocked that this is an actual court case and not just a very elaborate joke itself.
2 years ago, a Scottish comedian Count Dankula (Mark Meechan) posted a video where he taught his pug to do a Nazi salute to annoy his girlfriend. He even explicitly stated on the video that he’s doing it to annoy his girlfriend by turning his pug into the most revolting thing possible (a Nazi).
Fast forward 2 years and this is him…
Nope. This is not a joke. This is literally him being handcuffed and dragged through courts for 2 years over a fucking Nazi joke. Today, on 20th March 2018, he was convicted under communications act of being “grossly offensive” and he is now facing 2 years of prison.
Here is Tommy Robinson giving few words on the matter in front of the court where Mark Meechan was convicted.
I find this absolutely terrifying. I’d understand it if it was in some shithole of a country run by a dictator. No, this is Scotland. United Kingdom. Western democratic world. Convicting a man over a joke. For real. It literally happened. And I still can’t believe it. It’s literally surreal that someone can get imprisoned over a joke in a modern society. When shit like this happens, you know society has fucked up and needs to go back.
There is literally nothing in this world that is offensive enough to land someone in prison. You can insult me, my family, my dog, my country and I’ll probably think you’re an asshole, but I’d defend you to have that right and not getting imprisoned or fined for it. And everyone should have such stance, because only this way, we can ensure “being offended” is not being abused to silence and ruin people.
Like Tommy Robinson said, this ridiculous case is setting a precedents to silence people in the future. If Mark Meechan could be silenced and imprisoned for making a stupid joke, what’s next? If muslims find it offensive for making people aware of mass grooming of young underage girls by muslims and you land in a jail for it. You state that wage gap is bullshit and you land in a prison for offending feminists. Make fun of the Queen and they’ll lock you up. It sets an absolutely ridiculous precedents for the future that UK government wants in order to silence people they don’t like. And shit like this is spreading like cancer through Europe and it’s scary as fuck. Soon we won’t be allowed to make a joke about anything or anyone on social media because it could literally get you imprisoned.
People need to realize what a dangerous situation this is for our modern society. Where does it end? Who defines what offends someone? It’s dangerous shit that shouldn’t be happening and I fear for the future of free speech in Europe. It happens time and time again that people who endorse such censorship and silencing of others soon get hit by very same “rules” they imposed. So, why not simply allow everyone to be offensive to everyone and call it a day?
I really hope this will be brought forward to UN and other human rights organizations and brought back to court to make this nonsense disappear. It’s ridiculous and backwards. Shit like this belongs to medieval times, not to modern time Europe for fucks sake.
