Fine and jail time for Nazi comments

The Local Austria, 26 Sep 2014

A 27-year-old man has been handed a €7,200 fine and a one year prison sentence for inciting hatred and re-engagement in National Socialist activities.

Korneuburg Regional Court convicted the man after he confessed to posting countless Nazi and xenophobic comments and content online.

The prosecutor noted that he had trivialised the Holocaust and had an ‘88’ tattoo on his back, which stands for HH, or Heil Hitler.

The prosecutor said he would not bother reading out any of the man’s postings as “any normal person would find them disgraceful”.

When questioned the 27-year-old admitted that he had extreme right-wing views and said that he had developed an aversion to immigrants, Jews, Muslims and Africans since being at school.

He also admitted possessing illegal weapons purchased in the Czech Republic. The 27-year-old already had a criminal record after being involved in violent brawls.

His defence argued that he had been unemployed for some time and in his frustration had become influenced by right-wing propaganda. He said that he has since had most of his tattoos removed, or altered into Hawaiian symbols, and was a “changed man”.

COMMENTS

FANTASTIC! I applaud the Austrian authorities for coming down hard on White, Germanic citizens of Austria who dare to express themselves in public. Such behaviour cannot be tolerated. I especially commend the prosecutor for refusing to lower the tone of the court proceedings by entering evidence: "The prosecutor said he would not bother reading out any of the man’s postings as 'any normal person would find them disgraceful'." -- Bravo, sir!
