The leftist standards of political correctness have jumped the shark in recent years, as free speech comes under attack in a big way across the globe.
While not every nation on the planet respects the concept of free speech in the way that the United States does, some locales carry with them an expectation of reasonable verbal liberty, especially nations considered “first world”. Germany, whose not so distant past includes some of modern history’s most egregious trespasses against these freedoms, has done a bit of backsliding as globalist Chancellor Angela Merkel continues to push her ridiculous, open-border agendas.
Now, one elderly German woman who made a joke on social media is facing a hefty fine, due to the quip’s reference to immigrants.
“An elderly German woman was fined 1,350 euros for sharing and liking an anti-migrant joke on Facebook.
“The image, which was deemed offensive by the court, included answers such as ‘Yes, machine guns and hand grenades’ and was shared by more than 500 people. One person who also shared the picture reported the elderly woman to the police.
“German newspaper Berliner Morgenpost reported that the woman was fined 1,350 euros because the image included negative comments about the so-called refugees.”
In a world rife with radical Islamic terror, that has ironically been focused in Germany, France, and England in recent months, a little humor can go a long way to ease the minds of concerned citizens.
It is becoming readily apparent that the German government has gone all-in on their hopes to assimilate as many of these potentially dangerous refugees as possible against the will of the German citizens who are affected by radical Islamic attacks. Merkel, who is without a doubt one of the world’s most ardent globalists, has come under mass scrutiny due to her lackluster reposes to terrorism’s sweep throughout Europe.
Instead, it seems, Germany’s government is more focused on the prosecution of little old ladies whose sense of humor doesn’t agree wholly with Merkel’s.
