Man guilty of hate crime for filming pug’s ‘Nazi salutes’

A Scottish YouTube comic trained his pug to lift it’s paw to “Seig Heil.” Not to make an actual Nazi pug, but to make a joke. As a result, he faces a year in prison. This, again, is in Britain.

Recommendation to George Lucas and Steven Spielberg: don’t go to Britain.

You’d think that, with the 1st Amendment, this sort of egregious betrayal of basic civil liberties would be impossible in the United States. You’d think. But do you want to bet on it?

    I watched the video in question and came to 2 conclusions:

    1 – Yes, he’s an annoying little shit that was trying to be annoying to his GF

    2 – How the judge could understand anything the defendant said is beyond me, “seig heil” came across as barely intelligible with his accent.

      I could make out what he was saying. Might help to have an ear trained to a variety of British influenced accents. I found the video rather crass and tasteless. And concluded that anyone prosecuting the maker for the video is probably themselves a Nazi.
