I hadn’t heard of this “Nazi Dog” video until someone just linked it to me on Twitter. I have to say, it’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen in awhile.

You know what’s not funny, though? The Scottish authorities arresting this guy over a comedy skit. Yes, that actually happened

 

A Scottish man has been arrested on hate crime charges after posting insane video of his girlfriend’s pug saluting Hitler.

Though the two-minute clip started making the rounds online early last month, British media just reported Monday news of the arrest.

“My girlfriend is always ranting and raving about how cute her dog is so I thought I would turn her into the least cute thing you could think of which is a Nazi,” 28-year-old Markus Meechan says at the start of the clip.

The video goes on to show the dog — whose name is Buddha — learning to jump up in excitement in response to the question, “Do you want to gas some Jews?”

The little pup also watches Hitler on TV and even responds by raising his paw in salute when Meechan says, “Sieg heil.”

The video, titled “M8 Yer Dugs A Nazi” has been viewed more than 1.2 million times…

“I would ask anyone who has had the misfortune to have viewed it to think about the pain and hurt the narrative has caused a minority of people in our community [according to Detective Inspector David Cockburn].

“The clip is deeply offensive and no reasonable person can possibly find the content acceptable in today’s society.”

Dude, it’s funny. The only unreasonable person here is Mr. Cockburn. Can you imagine being this far up your own ass? Hopefully he’s being made to say that hogwash by his superiors, but it reads like he really believes it. Under this kind of regime, John Cleese would be a criminal nowadays.

 

No shock then (as noted by PrisonPlanet) that he’s one of the leading critics of politically correct culture run amok. If you find that “Nazi Dog” video offensive, you have no sense of humor. But if you find it criminal, you’re a disgusting piece of trash. there really is no middle ground on this one for me. Unfortunately, the decriminalization of speech continues pretty much unabated.

  1. This bothers me about the UK. We need a first amendment, and a second. We’re better than most other countries, but countries with hate speech laws are going to fall behind. I don’t want anyone shaping my reality for me or anyone else. Many video games are banned in Germany as well. The only option may be to move to the USA.

    1. Go ahead….I think you may be soon disabused of the notion that having some 200 year old bit of parchment written in 18thC legalese protects your rights or guarantees you are free.

      1. Actually it doesn’t, common misconception about the US Constitution. The bill of rights limits government power, it does not grant rights. The rights are inherent granted by the creator and all that nonsense.

        1. Good point well made chief and I thank you

          “The rights are inherent granted by the creator and all that nonsense.”

          Hmmm…. that explains a lot {;-)

          1. I’m actually on board with the inherent rights as a man part, it’s the endowed by the creator that annoys me. Almost implies those that do’t believe shouldn’t get the rights.

  2. Mother of God that’s a funny video , and sad , that Britain has abandoned free speech.

  3. Putting people in jail over comedy. How can anyone feel comfortable living in that place anymore. Get Nora over here as soon as you can dude.

    1. Scotland is a separate country with its own legal system, own laws, and own police force.

      Nora lives in England.

      1. Ok, that’s good to know. Then they should get somebody to build a wall to keep those barbarians up there.

  4. Yeah…..lets see how long this lasts before being struck down as illegal, ridiculous and law enforcement overreach. Mr. Cockburn should remember its open season on senior coppers at the moment, especially ones who flap their jaws.

  5. What the hell is going on over there on the other side of the pond? Is there something in the water or what?

  6. When I first read V for Vendetta I found it strange that such a totalitarian regime could arise in the UK, but nowadays it is not so far-fetched.
