An Austrian pensioner has been sentenced to six months probation for ‘hate speech’ on social media…
The 63-year-old unnamed pensioner was sentenced in a Vienna court this week for writing posts that were considered hate speech by judges in the Austrian capital.
The man wrote on Facebook on at least one occasion to specific crimes committed by migrants. The judge in the case claimed that the remarks were made with hateful intent toward migrants, breaking the strict Austrian hate speech laws, and sentenced the man to six months probation, reports Der Standard.
Judge Stefan Romstorfer, who presided over the case, said: “There’s a certain hatred and a certain energy behind it, which I do not like,” when addressing the elderly man at the announcement of the verdict of the court. The reaction of the convicted Viennese man was out of the ordinary as he asked the judge: “Am I a criminal?” When Judge Romstorfer replied that he was, the man nonchalantly said: “Super, very good.”
Austria is one of many places where the local residents are concerned about actual crimes being committed by specific immigrants, but apparently discussing those things might be a crime. Especially if there is a certain hatred and energy behind it.
This will happen here if we don’t fix some stuff really soon.
