Here’s the chat, background on Count Dankula is below. We talked about all sorts of stuff, his Nazi Pug joke, Tommy Robinson in the tank on the Golan heights picture, Israel and many other topics!
Last night I spent two enjoyable hours shooting the breeze with convicted hate speech criminal, Count Dankula. You may remember his story: he was convicted last year of committing the ultimate crime in the UK. He posted a joke video of his girlfriend’s dog. The issue was he told a simple joke. He wanted to turn the cute pug into the most evil and horrible thing he could think of so he turned the dog into a Nazi. He trained Buddha the Pug to raise his paw when he said “gas the Jews”.
It was clear from the context of the video it was a joke. Some people found it funny, some didn’t and some thought it would be a good idea to prosecute this man in Scottish courts and eventually find him guilty. He has been fined but refuses to pay his fine. He has donated the value of his fine to a charity, it’s not about the money, it’s about speech.
It’s insulting for me to have to say he isn’t hateful, a Jew hater, antisemite or Nazi. This is self evident. That a court had to wilfully disregard all context in his video to find him guilty is a massive stain on Scottish and eventually the UK’s entire legal system.
I mentioned Count Dankula in this video back a year ago when he was convicted. A huge thanks to Dankula for having me on his channel. He has a much larger audience than I do and my mere presence was a huge challenge to some of the people who watch his stuff. If you want to see an example of his recent comedy, I found his recent video on Communism to be excellent, see it here.
I have to say there was a serious far-right Jew hatred problem in the live chats. Honestly I didn’t watch them for the first hour and a half and only toward the end did I look. By then they had improved quite a bit. I am still more comfortable talking to his edgy audience and honestly I feel they listened to me more than any hearing I would have got from a correspondingly pro BDS, anti-Israel and Jew hating audience on the other side.
