The epithets were unwise but really and truly, what is going on here?

A Dresden court has found Patriotic Europeans Against The Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) founder Lutz Bachmann guilty of hate speech against migrants and sentenced him to a €9,600 fine.

The trial of Lutz Bachmann has come to an end. The PEGIDA founder was accused of inciting hate speech or “sedition” against migrants back in 2014.

Bachmann made a post on Facebook in which he called some migrants “brutes” and “scum.” The Dresden court ultimately found Bachmann guilty of inciting hatred toward the migrants and decided to forgo a prison sentence and fine him instead reports Frankfurter Rundschau.

Let’s look at that again though – he called “some” migrants those names:

the flood

The charge was “sedition”:


How is calling those on that car scum sedition against the state?

Does this not, in Europe, get us back to a North Korean and Turkish situation where not only can one not criticize [especially with back up data] a “leader” but one cannot criticize his/her favourites either.

And that is not most people’s perception of how Europe works. Despite the EU being totalitarian in itself, most Europeans feel they can express an opinion on their leaders.

Apparently not, so collude the courts.

    I believe the definition you used was one from a British(ish) dictionary. However, in the European Union of Socialist Republics, they use a dictionary where a definition is whatever the self-serving leaders of the corrupt collective deem it to be. Hence the guilty verdict. My only concern is what the destruction of what appears to be a Baltimore Police car by local future captains of industry had to do with failures of justice in the EU (willing to be castigated if I’m wrong)?

    They’re using in the ‘forment trouble’ lark. However, he wasn’t, he was simply stating that illegal immigrants are a negative influence on society.This is just another example of the state forcing an agenda whereby freedoms are suppressed and eventually revoked entirely. Today a fine, tomorrow a black bag.

    We must leave the EU. It must end.

    The spavined creed and ideology of political correctness knows only one destination – totalitarianism.

    Berlin flexes its muscles and the rest of the EU fall into line.

    What needs to be explained to me, is, how can anyone on this side of the channel really associate any ex sovereign state, now enslaved behind the EU curtain – a democracy?

    Federal state, is it?………………………nope, it’s more like the PRC or Red China as it used to be known and still is.
