To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you’re not allowed to criticize.” ~ Voltaire

Last year, Mark Meechan (Count Dankula), 29, posted a video of him teaching his dog some tricks. Meechan taught his pug, Buddha, to raise his paws every time he said ‘Seig Heil.’ In a video uploaded on YouTube, you can also see Meechan teaching his adorable pug to respond to phrases such as ‘gas the Jews’ and sometimes just ‘Jews’. There’s also a clip of Meechan showing his dog one of Hitler’s speeches.

In my opinion, the video was hilarious. I understand this type of humour isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s clear that there was no malice in that video. Just some guy taking the piss. However, Scotland did not think so. Soon after uploading ‘M8 Yer Dugs a Nazi’, Meechan was charged with a hate crime and was told that the video could be seen as promoting violence against Jews. He was then hauled off to jail where he spent the night before being released to await his court date.

What a load of bullshit. You can hear him say at the beginning of the video, “My girlfriend is always ranting and raving about how cute and adorable her wee dog is so I thought I would turn him into the least cute thing I could think of, which is a Nazi.”

However, the judge didn’t agree with me. Today, Mr. Meechan was found guilty under the communication act for being ‘grossly offensive’.

According to Tommy Robinson, the infamous UK activist who was at the courthouse: “They said he was grossly offensive…he was convicted for being ‘grossly offensive’.”

“You can go through the man’s history and see he’s not a Nazi! He’s a self-confessed communist!”

(That’s Mr. Meechan’s girlfriend, by the way.)

I’m honestly disgusted. Meechan is honestly a very kind man, just look at his YouTube channel!

Meechan will be sentenced at 11:00 am EST. I’ll update this post as I receive more information.

UPDATE: They’re holding off the sentencing for another month. The judge would like a pre-sentencing report before handing down a sentence. He will be sentenced on April 23rd. There’s some mixed information about how long he could get, but it could allegedly be up to 2 years.

You let me down, Britain.
