Court rules anti-Polish slogans lawful
A German court in Greifswald, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern has ruled that anti-Polish posters, displayed by the far-right NPD do not constitute a hate crime.
The posters, displayed in the city of Loecknitz near the Polish border, as part of the NPDs federal election campaign, include slogans such as Stop the Polish invasion, and Border closed to criminals.
The German Ministry of Interior has notified the court in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern that it will be appealing against the decision, which it regards as an, attack on human dignity and the peaceful coexistence of nations.
Germans go to the polls on September 27.
On the German side of the border? Wow, how things change in 70 years.
‘Stick and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’
OK, So the Germans are getting uppity.
What’s the worst that can happen?
It’s because many Poles settle there - in places abandoned by the east Germans, who had moved to the West.
Sort of Drang nach Westen, I’d say ;-)
I wonder if the courts in Germany would be so forgiving if a German had posted a sign that says "Muslims Stay Out" or something similar.
As my dearly missed mother would say (and I know Im not spelling it correctly):
That’s going to happen any day now!/sarc
