Blasphemy is a crime in Denmark, along with "racism." Fines are crafted so as to be nearly impossible to appeal.
“…The ideology of Islam is every bit as loathsome, nauseating, oppressive and dehumanizing as Nazism. The massive immigration of Islamists into Denmark is the most devastating event Danish society has suffered in recent historical times.”
Thursday morning these words cost Flemming Nielsen 1,600 kroner. He was sentenced to four day-fines of 400 kroner for violating the Penal Code §266b paragraph 1, also called the racism paragraph. This is from a judgment rendered by a Court in Elsinore.
The accused, Flemming Nielsen, had written the words on Facebook in late November 2013.
Tania Groth of PEGIDA Denmark explains a bit about this particular "thought crime" and how many right minded people got together and raised the money for Nielsen's fine, as well as plans to force an appeal:
The fact that blasphemy laws are suddenly appearing or being enforced for the first time in centuries clearly seems to be a direct function of Islamic influence in the West.
For the moment, it's obvious that some speech and thoughts are now crimes in formerly free countries, and violations are being prosecuted in a fairly arbitrary manner against formerly free citizens -- but pretty much only when it comes to criticism of Islam.
And once the precedent is established in the form of fines, there really is no obstacle to moving up the punitive ladder from fines to prisons, or the more politically correct "reeducation camps."
As to the truth of Flemming's comparison, it really shouldn't matter. The definition of freedom of speech is the freedom to hold opinions that go against the interests of other people, and being able to persuade others of your point of view.
However, some studies show that Hitler's Mein Kampf includes fewer references to genocidal anti-semitism than do Islamic scripture.
