I’ve never followed this crowd.
I’m only vaguely familiar with Count Dankula. When I was on Twitter, I saw a couple of his tweets about how he was fond of traps. He struck me as just another lolbertarian goofball. Occasionally, I would see his tweets when he was retweeted into my newsfeed:
“Scottish YouTube personality Count Dankula — real name Mark Meechan — was found guilty at Glasgow Sherrif Court Tuesday of a hate crime, and potentially faces two months in prison after recording a video of his girlfriend’s dog doing Nazi salutes.
Reporting from inside the courtroom, journalist and street organiser Tommy Robinson said Meechan had been found guilty of being “Grossly Offensive” under the Communications Act of 2003. Meechan was due to be sentenced Tuesday afternoon but the judge decided to release him on bail, to return to court on the 23rd of April. …”
It appears this guy is going to prison now for hate speech.
Lutz Bachmann, the founder of PEGIDA, also recently got the Brittany Pettibone and Lauren Southern treatment. None of these people are Neo-Nazis or white supremacists by any stretch of the imagination. They all fall somewhere along the conservative to libertarian spectrum.
Anyway, I will just note that mainstream conservatism is being criminalized in the UK under a Conservative government. It is now not merely offensive and taboo, but illegal to violate politically correct taboos. The UK is now a place where men queue to rape 14-year-olds in Telford.
The moral of the story: Britons are disarmed pacifists who thought they could solve their problems by voting for the Conservative Party. It doesn’t matter if you are a Nazi. This is the sorry place they have ended up. It will only get worse from here. Clearly, they’re coming for the Liberalists now.
Note: You will have to click through several hate speech filters to access the video.
