German woman receives large fine for criticising refugees on Facebook, by Voice of Europe.
A German cleaning lady received a fine of 1,650 euros for criticising refugees and the country’s asylum policy, news outlet Wochenblick reports.
The woman commit her ‘Orwellian thought crime’ on Facebook, as she said this about refugees:
“Sh*t on the state, steal from people, rape, swirling the eggs, demand money from us and sue the state. That’s what they can. They’re more valuable than gold, our super-skilled people.”
The cleaning lady’s plea for help to the German judiciary was not heard. On the contrary, the district court of Dachau fined the cleaning woman because of “sedition” (§ 130 StGB).
She was given a 1,650 euro fine, as the court’s opinion was that her comment against refugees “scared people”.
So there. They say you know who rules you by who you are not allowed to criticize, but they should have added that you aren’t allowed to criticize their mascots or pet projects either.
