German With Hitler Ringtone Faces Jail Term
Who the hell has a Hitler ringtone? That's stupid and in Germany of all places.
Guess he was an attention whore.
What. An. Asshole.
I'm guessing he's one of those asses who don't believe the Holocaust happened, either.
Sadly, swastikas are every here in Taiwan. And I don't just mean the proper Buddhist one either. I've lost count of the number of Nazi flags and other Nazi-related crap I've seen here. There was even a campaign ad during an election a few years back by the then-opposition depicting the then-President as Hitler, which was both disgusting and ironic as people's freedoms increased under his presidency.
Some people are just fuckwads, I guess.
My first response was "You're sh*tting me.."
He needs to be chlorinated out of the gene pool right quick....
Heh. Sounds like something Hitler would say.
"Dummkopf" schreibt man mit 2 m.
I can't understand why people like Hitler and all the shit, you learn in school what happened back then, it's often on TV and there is really no reason to agree with this idiology, unless your IQ is lower than the burger's I ate this morning...
Having such a ringtone is just plain ******ed.
whoops my bad I only know a very few words of german lol.
And yah the guy was a grade AAA insane meglomaniac. Makes today's terrorist look like rank amateurs.
Who cares really? It is tasteless and the guy is an idiot yes. But is anyone's life harmed by this moron's poor choice of a ringtone and wallpaper? He made a stupid choice by doing this but 3 YEARS for that? I can understand the sensitivity to Nazism in Germany but THREE YEARS in jail for a farking ringtone and wallpaper on a phone?
Imagine them start throwing other people in jail for other poor choices in Ringtones and phone wallpapers... like Twilight or Justin Beiber.. Then you are going to have some really crowded jails.
Germans dont put up with any Nazi crap. You skip go, do not collect 200 dollars and go directly to jail. There is ZERO tolerance for it.
you say that like its a bad thing.
I guess Germany doesn't have the right to freedom of speech?
edit: would this even count as freedom of speech...
Wow. That's crazy.
TFW Poll. Which is worse:
Hitler or Twilight
Why do I get the feeling some people here would say Twilight?
The German Constitution does guarantee freedom of speech, but just like here, there are limitations placed on that freedom--one of which is that it is illegal to deny the actions of the Nazis. It is also functionally illegal to promote Nazi images, since that is considered to be incitement.
I love that you just compared Nazism to Twilight. Is that like the inverse of Godwin's Law?
Who cares? The German people. And most likely the relatives of the millions who died because of Nazi policies. You say you can understand the sensitivity, but it's obvious that you're just mouthing the words, since you clearly can't understand how sensitive they are.
The use of the swastika is prohibited in Germany. Even Anti-Nazi Logos which feature a crossed out swastika. Which is totally stupid. At least this might be a reason for him getting into jail.
Crazy....I bet he'll keep that phone on vibrate from now on....
I just had to.
