    Have You or Has Someone You Know Been Charged with "Hate Speech"?

    By now it's becoming more and more common.

    It would be interesting for statistical purposes to learn how many Skadi members know someone (or have been themselves victims) indicted for a thought crime.

    For obvious reasons there is no need for specific details or names.

    Also share strategies how to avoid being indicted of thought crimes in the first place and how to defend ourselves in case we become the victims of thought crimes.

    PS: The question is posed in a legal matter, i.e. if you/someone has been arrested/interrogated/had tea or coffee with the police etc.

    The poll is multiple choice and private. By personally is meant someone you know IRL, not off the Internet or from the news.

    I knew a proud German-Canadian (who I haven't been in contact with for a while) who got himself in trouble with the law for "holocaust denial" at the tender age of 14. I'm not sure what consequences he faced, but it involved being investigated by police.

    I also want to give an honorable mention to a Lithuanian I never met in person, but talked to extensively online years ago. He was charged with "antisemitism,"
    I believe at age 17.

    If you want to avoid being charged with a thought crime, don't post anything online that could be deemed a thought crime. Not even anonymously, because they can find out who you are.

    Yes, I've known several people who have been charged with "hate speech."
    'Well, what are you?" said the Pigeon. "I can see you're trying to invent something!" "I-I'm a little girl," said Alice, rather doubtfully. She found herself at last in a beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains.

    I don't know anyone in real life who shares my views. Only online.

    I'm even alone as a pro-Trump supporter. My mom voted for him in 2016 but she has done a 180 and now listens to Rachel Maddow, and other anti-Trumpists, and changed her voter registration back to Democrat.

    What do we mean by "charged", meaning in the courts as in legal due process or socially charged and shunned for your views on racial/political separatism?

    By today's social standards I'm a full time thought criminal.

    If they could scan your thoughts, they would and then be able to charge you for thought crime ;-)


    For now all they can do is charge one for speech or text that goes against their rules.

    The first one. This thread used to be in the legal forum. I don't know who moved it to the Hearth, but it should be moved back, as my question was/is a legal one. Basically I was asking if anyone has been charged with hate speech (or a similar type of thing) or suffered legal consequences because of their political/ideological/religious etc. views (or if they know someone personally who has). That includes arrests, interrogations, charges, jail & prison sentences and the like.

    I will make a separate thread relating to social consequences.

    In that case, No
