Hate speech laws are evil: UK comedian sentenced to jail


A UK comedian called Count Dankula played a prank on his girlfriend by training her dog to do something offensive and then posting a video of the dog doing it. He describes himself as a ‘shitposter’ as he likes to post things to generate a response.

In his wildest dreams, I am sure he could never have envisaged being dragged through the court system for covertly teaching his girlfriend’s pug dog to do what looks like a Nazi salute.

This is a joke akin to teaching your goodie two shoes friend’s parrot to swear. Yes, it is offensive but that is the whole point. That is why it is funny and a prank. It is black humour and it does not make Count Dankula a Nazi or anti-semitic. Even if you find his sense of humour offensive he should be free to offend.

Freedom of speech means the freedom to offend and Hate speech laws are evil because they put other people’s hurty feelings above your right to say what you like. ANYTHING can offend another person. Hate speech laws are a rabbit hole that I hope New Zealand never goes down.
