Man who taught dog Nazi salute found guilty of hate crime - Diaspora - Jerusalem Post

Quote:
A British man who taught his pug to do a Nazi salute when he gave specific verbal commands has been found guilty of a hate crime, The Jewish Chronicle reported.

Mark Meechan instructed the dog to perform the salute when he said "sieg heil" or "gas the Jews." He had uploaded a video of the trick in 2016, which then quickly went viral. eechan claimed he taught the dog the salute and the commands to irk his girlfriend, who owned the dog. In the 2016 video, he can be heard saying he wanted to turn the dog "into the least cute thing I could think of, which is a Nazi."

He later apologized after being arrested, saying he doesn't "actually hate Jewish people" and that the Holocaust was "an awful thing."

Meechan was found guilty under the Communications Act, and the judge involved in the case, Sheriff Derek O'Carroll, said that Meechan's calling the video comedic was no "magic wand" to get off scot-free.
Glad the UK justice system could take a break from raping kids long enough to take down this Nazi.

He's not a Nazi though...the pug is!

Another blow for freedom. What a disgrace.

Will they kill the dog ?

The FedEx dog had a package stuff in its mouth. I hope no one goes to jail for a sexual assault.

That's a good question. Since the dog is a Nazi as confirmed by this conviction should he stand trial like Nuremberg?

Bark once if you plea guilty. Bark twice if you plea innocent.

Ah yes, good ole UK, the place that lets radical Islamist yell all day long in loud speakers about how Islam will take over the UK, kill all non-believers, and a new Islamic state will prevail under Sharia, yet no action taken against them. Head to that park next to Big Ben or various metro stations and they will be out there, along with the occasional large rally.

A dog doing a salute? Oh yea, serious matter right there.

Just as I read about some Laura Southern or someone who was prevented going to the UK, and she stated it pretty accurately on how amazing the border controls work to prevent her from coming in, yet seem inept to prevent illegal entry by African and ME migrants and even more inept to find and boot them from the country.

The Romans had a great military salute. Too bad Hitler hi-jacked it and now a dog is in trouble for using it. Shame.....

The left wants to bring these laws to the US. If they get thier way we could see not only NAZIs jailed but also those who criticize and offend minorities, those who speak out against homosexuality or cite religious objections to homosexuality, those who criticize the feminist moment or who utter any speech that offends the leftist trends of the day. Today we already see those who say politically incorrect things loose thier jobs or face boycotting, in the future they could be jailed. It is part of the slow death of freedom we are seeing in this nation. If the hippies win in a millenial filed hate trump surge in the elections of 2018 and 2020 we may have these kinds of laws by 2021. They will go for it all if they win in 2020.

The Title is Absolutely MISLEADING.

If all the guy did was to show a funny dog doing an accidental Nazi solute then I doubt anyone would bat an eye.

He was really over the top, repeatedly saying to the camera, "Gas the Jews!!! Gas the Jews!!!" Even when his dog was just laying on the couch doing nothing he was yelling, "Gas the Jews! Gas the Jews!!!"

It wasn't the dog, it was him. At some point it became very suspiciously like he was using the dog as a decoy for him to say racist things.

So a dog doing a trick warrants a charge, trial, and conviction of a human being?

Sieg Heil!

Maybe 10 seconds of the video was the dog doing a trick.

The other 95% of the time it was the guy repeating, "Gas the Jews!!! Gas the Jews!!"

To say the guy was charged with a hate crime for teaching his dog the salute is like saying Charles Manson was put in prison for smoking weed. Er, no, there is much more to it than that.

But I am not surprised this is how the Right spin it.
