The Tommy Robinson Show Meets Count Dankula: Trial Update and Interview

Tommy RobinsonShillman Fellow


Count Dankula is the Scottish comedian and vlogger who hit headlines when he was arrested for teaching his girlfriend's pet pug to Sieg Heil, and making a comedic video of it.

For two years, Markus Meechan has had his life on pause, waiting for the courts to make a decision — and just days ago, The Tommy Robinson Show team were there to support him and report on the case.

Dankula's case is simply a challenge to our freedom of speech.

Comedy is being made illegal — in Britain, where some of the world's greatest comedy originated! 

Meechan was hoping for an answer, and to bring this long case to an end — but that's not what happened.

Tune in to today's episode of The Tommy Robinson Show to learn more about his story, and get the latest updates on his case.

Larry M, my dog does it every time I say, ‘give me a paw’. I always knew that dog was a hateful cur, but now I may have to turn him in. Is there a 310 reporting number for animal hate crimes in Canada yet? I don’t want to go to jail.

North America needs to hear the crazy applications of these newly designed wide open hate speech laws from the UK. Europe and Australia. Some Canadians seem to think something this ridiculous can’t happen here. I’m not sure what the left thinks m103 is ushering in, but it is going to blow up in our faces if we don’t heed what is going on in other western countries. Canada needs Tommy, Mark and Katie.

Actually ,I am aware of a large number of dogs which SEIG HEIL regularly but do it with their hind legs. It is not clear who their teacher is but I suspect it is an international conspiracy of some group.

And this is a progressive society ? I think not . Bring him to Canada we will read him poetry it worked for the ISIS fighters surely it could work for him .

It appears that you can face time in prison for poor taste jokes, but not for leaving the UK to fight for Isis. Something is seriously wrong here.

Having laws against hate speech isn’t a bad thing. But in their current form it appears as though I could get a prison sentence for making a joke about someones poor taste in clothes. If I offend you about that, I have apparently committed a hate crime.

On another note. Whats the story with Tommy? I read a tweet that suggests that he is not happy having videos behind a pay wall. Remember two things (1) Youtube etc are likely to take down any “alt-right” opinion at anytime. I think it less likely that Rebel could be shut down. (2) Any video on Rebel does tend to end up being re-distributed. (3) The mobile phone videos on Tommys own youtube are not good quality. Just look at the production in this video about the Nazi Pug. Its very professional. It makes the message so much more clearer.

- As we see in these cases the process is the punishment. The government doesn’t want to admit that they’re stripping people of their rights so they’ll drag them through the courts instead for as long as they can.

Yup. Persecution by prosecution to be followed by bankruptcy.

As much as I dislike Tommy Robinson (mainly for being the founder of EDL), massive respect to him for this.

Tommy, time for an educational fact-check buddy, because I DO support you.
After referencing Nazis and Hitler, you said, “It’s not like you got any history of far-right ideology” The Nazis were socialist extremists, not far right, national socialist workers party – not the capitalist keep-what-you-earn and have all your freedoms party.
Please. I Support you, and we’re collectively a minority (apparently). Get your bloody facts straight Mate – because spreading historical misinformation & rhetoric is a leftist tactic – not ours.

Yeah, well, I have been saying for years that the first thing that happens when a person is infected by the political correctness virus is, the part of the brain that governs the sense of humour is completely, irreversibly destroyed.
Unfortunately we now have Members of Parliament, prosecutors, and even judges who are old enough to have been infected by this disease as infants.

Scary, isn’t it?

My family gave me the complete Monty Python collection. While I have been watching it, I realize I could now be charged with possessing hate propaganda. To prove the charge, my Rowan Atkinson collection will also be cited. Back up for prosecutors will be Peter Sellers and Dudley Moore DVDs in my collection, not to mention Moore’s jazz CDs.

That Muslim/truck joke by Meehan was classic Brit humour in these traditions, and one could see any of the above wishing they had done the pug skit.

If British humour dies, then so does the culture of the Anglosphere, including India, which has some pretty good comedians in the Brit tradition.

Tommy and Kevin, thanks for the update.
The prosecutor tried to stack the deck and I’m glad the judge didn’t allow it, I hope his lawyer claims malicious prosecution is a factor in this case. This case is disturbing, it is my hope Marcus Meehan will be found NOT GUILTY.

Thank god we have Tommy Robinson and Katie Hopkins, because at 3,30 pm 10/ 01/ 18, ET, because that is all there is.

Excellent video Tommy with professional production qualities.
The UK has gone past the point of no return, they are Bat Sht Crazy. Sky News was reporting the following BS. ‘Off the shelf Corrosive liquids will not be sold to anybody under the age of seventeen’. They are doing this in the hope that it will reduce the number of acid attacks, which have peaked in major city’s.

Stop the world! I want to get off.

A whole country full of islamic, jew-hating muslims encouraging violence against anyone not muslim and they charge this guy with a crime? The UK allows and encourages muslim rape gangs to continue in their filthy business and they charge this guy with a crime? FGM is rampant and they charge this guy with a crime? Pedophilia is acceptable in the UK but this guy is charged with a crime? The end of civilization is closer than we think.

IF THIS MAN IS CONVICTEDBRITAIN SHOULD START BUILDING 20,000 JAILS JUST TO HOUSE EVERY MUSLIN WHO HAS ATTENDED A MOSQUE WHERE THE SAYING OVER THE DOOR SAYS KILL JEWS AND ANOTHER 40,000 JAILS TO EVERY MUSLIM WHO HAS EVER READ THE KORAN, BECAUSE IT SAYS KILL ALL JEWS .
IF SCOTS VALUE FREE SPEECH ON MARCH 20 2018 SHOULD SHOW UP AT THE COURT HOUSE WITH FLAMING TORCHES AND THEIR FATHERS SWORDS TO MAKE SURE THE JUDGE UNDER STANDS WHAT FREE SPEECH IS.
ENLIGHTENED CONSERVATIVEFREE SPEECH USE IT OR LOOSE IT.

That’ll teach the British people who think they can have a sense of humour!

It has been said that the first real crack down in the new free speech laws would not be about Islam. I guess they think hitting us hard making an example of a guy making a joke about nazis, bad taste as it was, would make everyone take pause and realize that they should not dare make fun or joke about any ideology. They are making an example of this poor guy. Speaking out about Islam will be next. Other countries will follow. Canada is chomping at the bit. The ‘quelling’ has begun.

If it is about ‘perception’, a completely subjective thing, we are all going down.
I certainly did not ever imagine I would see such a thing in my lifetime.
This is not good.

If he has to go to jail for a year in the UK which is bursting with Islam, he is better off to be going in for this perceived hate speech against Jews( which it was not) than for an ‘insult’ to Islam. UK jails are chalk full of Muslim thugs and they all look like they are on coke and steroids. He’s probably safer this way.
If Count Dankula is put away for a year, he should write a book. Hope he goes home to his wife instead (and still writes that book).
Good luck from Canada.
