Count Dankula aka Mark Meechan fined $800 for teaching his pug to to Nazi salute when he said “gas the Jews”. Basically this is a joke that got way out of hand. Both right and left sprang to the defence of Meechan, from Ricky Gervais, Jonathan Pie to David Baddiel.
Even former EDL leader, ambulance chaser and current white supremacist Tommy Robinson made an appearance, to turn a minor circus into a major travesty. It’s not totally over and done with as Dankula is appealing the fine as he feels it sets a dangerous precedent.
