Image result for Nazi cat salute

A Salzburg court has found a 38-year-old Austrian man guilty of posting a selection of Nazi-inspired photos, many with allusions to gassing people, onto social media. One of the images featured a cat raising its right paw in the style of the German fascists.
The grand jury sentenced the man to 18 months, 15 months of which are suspended, for violating the Nazi Prohibition Act by repeatedly posting on the internet around 20 photos and related neo-Nazi slogans.
The Nachrichten.at daily described the images as“extreme right-wing propaganda,” and said they were spiced up by “cynical and dehumanizing slogans.”
“It is not so much about a single photo, but rather an impression of the overall context,” Markus Neher, the Attorney General, noted, APA news agency reported.
The defendant, whose name has not been revealed, pleaded guilty and apologized in court, Nachrichten.at reported.
A house search carried out by police also found items of clothing with Nazi symbols belonging to the man, including the numbers "88" (aka "HH", an abbreviation for "Heil Hitler").
Last July the Austrian government green-lighted a bill to strip the house in which Hitler was born from its present owner to prevent it from becoming a neo-Nazi pilgrimage site. The country's interior minister, Wolfgang Sobotka, said the building, located in the small town of Braunau on the Inn in western Austria, should be demolished completely.
Right-wing parties have recently been gaining support across the EU. Anti-immigration Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer nearly became the first far-right head of state in the EU in Austria’s presidential election in May.  He actually won the election but it was overturned on a technicality [Yeah, technically he's a National Socialist so they took away his victory - Dan.]
Reinhard Kreissl, CEO for the Center of Societal Security in Vienna, told RT that growing support for Euroskeptic, anti-immigration parties can be easily explained.
“The economic downturn in Europe is obvious. There's a financial crisis. People are scared. They try to find a solution. They try to find an ideological homebase. And the nationalists, they give them a feeling of 'We have a solution of your problem,' which is not true, of course.”
Europe is currently facing its worst refugee crisis since World War II. Last year alone some 1.8 million asylum seekers entered the European Union fleeing war and poverty in Middle Eastern countries, according to data from the European Union border agency Frontex.

Comment:

This story is a few months old, but I just heard about it so I thought I'd post it anyway as it may be of interest to National Socialists.
This poor kameraden is nothing less than a victim of persecution.  It's bad enough to forbid the display of National Socialist symbols in public, but when you go to jail for having them in the privacy of your own home, that is just intolerable.  After all, a man's home is his castle, as they say.  Evidently not in Liberally controlled countries it isn't.  
At least it is in this country.  As bad as things are here, at least we can have our NS symbols in public and in private.  If the liberals ever get them banned publicly, then privately will follow suit eventually.  

I wonder.  Can you go to jail in Austria if you have a Swastika tattooed on your ass?  I bet you can - at least for the moment.  


A cat making a Nazi salute?!  Puh-leeze, gime me a break.  The liberals are really getting desperate to keep NS down.  The wheel is turning.  National Socialism is rising again.  Soon the liberals will be the ones being persecuted instead of us.
Dan 88!
