A Danish man was fined for ‘racism’ following his comment on Facebook which correctly compared Islam with Nazism.
GOV By JOHANNES KAAS FALLESEN, Jyllands-Posten“…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.
Flemming Nielsen wrote the words as a comment on a post that one of his friends had posted on social media regarding a residents’ association where the board had been overthrown by members of the extremist Muslim association Hizb ut-Tahrir.
The Elsinore Court claimed in its judgment that Flemming Nielsen had written in general about all Muslims, not Islamists in the narrower sense, as the convicted claimed. (There is no difference) “Thus, the Court in Elsinore has taken a major step towards expanding the racism paragraph to constitute a kind of blasphemy clause which indirectly protects Islam from insult.
