I used to admire Germany.
Now the whole place makes me want to throw up.
I just saw this new thread.
10 months in jail for 87yo grandma who said Auschwitz was a labor camp.

In the interview with the ARD network she claimed the death camp of Auschwitz in Nazi occupied Poland, where at least 1.1 million people were murdered, was ‘nothing more than a labour camp.’
I find this to be quite sad.
To imprison such an elderly woman simply because of her statements or views…
If she was inciting, encouraging or calling for violence, I could understand imposing a penalty.
Understood that some people are going to be offended or upset by her views/statements but she’s simply questioning or disagreeing with an aspect of history…
Kind of hypocritical that we in the West are imprisoning people for their statements and views while at the same time pointing our fingers at other “repressive regimes”.
Also a bit ironic that it seems perfectly legal to say very disturbing things about another group (Moslems), some even calling for the entire extermination…edit on 30-9-2016 by gladtobehere because: wordingDont blame me. I voted for Ron Paul.
