Lutz Bachmann fined 10,000 Euros for saying things about the hordes of Illegal Muslims migrating into Germany

District Court Dresden
Pegida-Founder Bachmann convicted for incitement of the people/hate speech (“Volksverhetzung”)
Pegida-founder Lutz Bachmann was sentenced to a fine of 9,600 EUR (11,516.00 USD/14,016.00CAD) for “Volksverhetzung” (incitement of the people/hate speech) by the district court Dresden on tuesday.
Pegida-Gründer Lutz Bachmann has been sentenced by the district court Dresden for “Volksverhetzung” (incitement of the people/hate speech) to a fine of 9,600 Euro (or 120 daily fines in lieu of jail time of 80 Euro). The head of the islam- and refugee-adversed association is said to have denigrated refugees, and to have incited hatred towards them, in comments on facebook.
The 43-year-old wo has a criminal record for theft and drug trade denied that these comments were made by him. Prosecution demanded a jail sentence of seven months, the defense pleaded not guilty. The verdict of tuesday is not final yet.

Note from translator:

on Facebook, Pegida asks everyone to read an article on “epoch times” which, Pegida said, had the facts. But it is a bit disappointing.
All the article on epoch times said was that Bachmann was accused of having made comments in a closed Facebook group, before he became front man of Pegida, calling refugees “Vieh” (cattle) and “Gelump”. The epoch times article left it that vague. When precisely? what group? what was the context and who reported him, etc. – all these things one might like to know, they don’t say.
Maybe because the verdict isn’t final yet?
My English dictionary says “rubbish” for “Gelump”. But that is not a literal translation, the word Bachmann used literally means something like old stuff that lies around collecting dust in an attic, and it is certainly condescending, but really more old-fashioned than actually offensive.
It is interesting in contrast that recently the vice president of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel (Social Democrats) famously called people who are against refugees “Pack” (low lifes/vermin).
The official German dictionary “Duden” says “Gelump” (Bachmann’s expression) is a synonym for “Pack” (our vice president’s expression).
Bit of a double standard there.

  1. So he is fined 10, 000 Euros for just telling the truth.

    The cowardly, insane Continent has gone mad. No truth no values. Only empowering and embracing islam. Confused without goal or direction. Everything is loose paving the way for bloody wars.

    Is this what happened before 1914 and 1939?

    • The similarities are so close that there is probably no way out of a major war, this war won’t be a short one like WWII (6 years) but will probably last the rest of this century. The attitudes in Europe that the left implanted (no guns, no nationalism etc.) will die over the next decade as the war grows in intensity. I predict that the 20th century efforts to civilize war (the Geneva Convention) will die as will the UN, the EU hopefully the World Court and probably NATO.

      • They couldn’t be doing a better job of creating conditions for the rise of another Hitler if they tried. Idiots! The Salafists are obliged to fight Jihad as long as it is possible to fight Jihad. What the lefties can’t get through their “educated” little heads is that a strong consistent intelligent response from us would signal the Salafists that Jihad was not really possible at this time, and they would simply be relieved of their duty to fight Jihad and it would stop. This could be won if the lefties would just step back and stop appeasing these creeps because they see appeasement as nothing but a big green light. It’s exactly like throwing gasoline onto a fire. Lefties think that slogans, like “Power to the people”, and “That’s not who we are”, somehow make stupid ideas into good ideas. The most dangerous thing on earth is the sheer wrongness of the left wing mindset…

  2. So, are they saying that hatred is never acceptable? Are they saying that Ecclesiastes is mistaken and there is not a time for everything under heaven? A time for love, a time for hate… Are they saying that we are now obliged to love everybody, even beheaders and rapists? Talk about government over-reach. They’re now assuming ownership of our moral compasses. Oh, great!

    Funny, though… I never see anybody getting charged with hating Donald Trump or calling for the killing of cops. It’s almost as if there’s some kind of bias at work…

    • You got that right, there is a multi tiered legal and moral system at work, they want one set of laws and moral code for them and others for each identity group that they support. The bottom rung of the ladder is for those that fight against what they want, anything goes against their enemies.

      • Because they are good and their enemies are bad. Lefties are convinced that they are the good guys, that even if they’re wrong, they’re basically right because their hearts are in the right place. Conservatives, on the other hand, dream of a world of oceans covered in bunker oil and dead birds; they see a baby and they want to see it die. Oh, thank God for the lefties.

        Oh, I see a baby right now. Gotta go…

        • Eventually, though, there is no right or wrong. It’s whatever keeps you alive, whatever the cost. You’re just that shark who’s got to keep moving or you’re food for other sharks.

          Don’t worry too much about the paralytic effects of cognitive dissonance. Live fire must concentrate the mind in wondrous ways.
