In the age of reason the following argument should be a slam dunk for the defence. But in the age of reason, this trial would not be happening any more than it happened for Mel Brooks for making The Producers.
The fact is, his intent which no one disputes, was trying to make a pug dog look evil as he had a bet with his girlfriend who said there was no way a pug could look evil.
So he made a quasi funny video where the Pug was a Nazi.
This therefore means, he knows and knew that the Nazis are evil.
QED now let him go.
But if you do not, then I want to see Mel Brooks on trial for trivializing Nazi horror to make it look funny cause clearly he wanted to gas stadiums of Jews by renormalizing Nazism.
And then HE DID IT AGAIN YEARS LATER!
If Pugman gets a guilty verdict, Mel Brooks must go on trial. Certainly if he ever steps foot in Scotland.
