Carousel Beast: Fury Pilot: Carousel Beast: what_now: The phrase is illegal in Germany and uttering it can even lead to a jail sentence.


Next time you biatch about "free speech", remember this nonsense.

There are similar phrases here in the States that can result in the same thing. It's quite chilling.

Such as?

\ Genuinely interested to know what sort of phrases beyond threats to kill, defamation etc. would be in play.
\\ Not American

One example: If you were to yell "run n------s!" (bonus if you included some profanity in there) at a bunch of African-American kids running a race, you'd likely be prosecuted for a hate crime or civil rights violation of some kind.

Heck, a kid just saying "I've got a gun" would get arrested, probably regardless of the context.


Both of those examples are not true and you know it

some_beer_drinker: so...the daily mail may have exaggerated a story for sensationalist purposes. holy crap, we should alert someone!


This. All of it.

Saying Sieg Heil is not illegal in Germany. Talking about Nazis is not illegal. Talking about Hitler is not illegal. Mein Kampf is not banned(it's copyright is owned by the Bavarian government. When it expires in 2016, a company plans to publish an annotated edition for educational purposes, though there is talk of the Bavarian government trying to ban it then).


What *is* illegal is mentioning any of these in a positive light.

Whose legs belong to what in the 2nd pic?

I only see 4 female legs


That's because the male legs are invisible.


/i like to "accidentally" bump into people wearing camouflage so I can say 'Sorry, I didn't see you.'"
