Danish ‘neo-Nazi’ gets 2 year sentence in Austria for criticizing Islam on Facebook

A 32-year-old Danish student was convicted in Austria for Nazi-driven incitement and denigration of religious teachings on Monday, and was sentenced to two years in custody.

A Danish man living in Vienna is said to have made Facebook postings which compared the prophet Muhammad to a pig, as well as calling for glorification of Nazi ideas. The 32-yer-old is a student of chemistry and history who has been living in Austria since 2010, according to a report from the Austrian Press Agency (APA).

Judge George Olschak decided that the insult to Islam was deeply offensive, as well as illegal religious incitement, and merited the two year sentence. State prosecutor Stefanie Schön said that the partly-suspended sentence was too lenient, and said that she would register an appeal calling for a longer prison term…

…In his defense, the Dane said that it was “an absurd accusation and a violation of [my] human rights.” He pointed out that he had written most of the postings in his own language, saying “If I had wanted to speak to an Austrian audience, I would have written it in Turkish. Of course, in the past I would have used German.”

He further protested that the court process was unrealistic, adding that “it makes no sense to give half answers to questions [from the prosecutor] without preparation.” To properly assess his views was “a matter for historians, and not for the court”…

    Post-Charlie Hebdo Europe is turning into a very grim totalitarian, anti-liberty place even faster than I thought. Good bye free speech, hello Islam.

    why doesn’t it give the guy’s name?

      Privacy laws are extremely strict in continental Europe. This is not an Anglo country. Even in the UK, the policies are changing — in response to the EU.

      America is still the only country with real free speech. Political correctness is corroding every other Western country.

        Umm, okay. So why in the bloody fuck don’t you Brits do something about it! Goddamn it, you all are so wimpy. Scream at the top of your lungs: STOP IMMIGRATION INTO UK NOW!

          I’m not a Brit. I am a Canadian. This blog is our attempt at doing the screaming.

          They apparently are working towards the United Kaliphate one muzzie immigrant at a time. *sigh*

          You will notice that I posted this one.

  • ericdondero

    And how do we know the guy’s a “NeoNazi”? It could just be the liberal media in Austria framing it that way. Do we have any evidence that the guy supports socialist economics?

    Chilling for conservative and libertarian critics of Islam in Europe.

      You’d have to do more research. You might have to look for local German sources. Usually, the MSM likes nothing more than huge stories about (the few real) neo-Nazis. They call them neo-Nazis because the Nazi party was banned after WW II. There is another party with a different name in Germany (but not many followers). Let me check, I’ll find the name.

        did you find anything?

          See below. I don’t have to time to dig into it in foreign languages. It is time to start the day’s blogging.

      From Wikipedia

      The National Democratic Party of Germany (German: Nationaldemokratische Partei Deutschlands, NPD), is a far-right political party in Germany. It was founded in 1964 as successor to the German Reich Party (German: Deutsche Reichspartei, DRP). Party statements also self-identify the party as Germany’s “only significant patriotic force”.[6] On 1 January 2011, the far-right German People’s Union (German: Deutsche Volksunion) merged with the NPD and the party name of the National Democratic Party of Germany was extended by the addition of “The People’s Union”.[7]

    This is what the decline of a nation looks like.

    He called mohammad a pig. Well, that’s a very insulting remark. To all pigs and piglets out there I apologize to them.
    What I can’t understand is why islam is always getting special treatment when they, all of them, are nothing more and nothing less then intolerant slugs who are bloodthirsty thugs. No such thing as a moderate muslim.

    • Yams

      You sir are an idiot.

      • chayisun

        Thank you for calling me sir. As for the idiot remark I shall just look the at fool who called me that. Now, go away and get out your prayer mat.

        • Well said;)

          • chayisun

            Thank you. I needed that. Anyway I thought so too….

        • Yams

          Guess you can’t count to five.

          • chayisun

            Yes, I can count to five and somewhat beyond. You sir are an ignoramus. I am assuming you have no idea what this means. I will not bother to explain it to you as this would require time and I have no more time for you. This has nothing to do with the article and I stand by my comment.

            Mohammad was a child molesting pervert and a bloodthirsty thug. Islam is not a religion but a 7th century cult and the followers of the koran are knuckledragging troglodytes as they go about murdering , rioting, trashing Churches, Synagogues while chanting death to the infidels.

            Now, I have two words for you and the first one sounds like truck. Figure it out. I assume you can.

          • Yams

            You clearly don’t understand the difference between Muslims and extremist Muslims. Thanks for the good day wishes, you too! <3

  • pdxnag

    Well, have they convicted Mohammad yet for his “incitement and denigration of religious teachings”?

  • cmh

    coming soon to a Canadian Supreme Court decision near you…,,

  • Oracle9

    There will be perversions of the “law”, but only as it elevates Islam and only Islam to the status of being beyond criticism. It’s OK lefties, Christian-bashing will still be considered “enlightened”.

    What the????

  • Yams

    It’s funny that the reason they are punishing this guy for Nazi writings is based on the totalitarian nature of the state (which is a feature of Nazism). So they’re trying to fight Nazism with Nazism, essentially.
