German Politician Charged And Convicted For Post Warning About Migrant Gang Rapes

It’s clear that the pro-illegal immigration officials in the U.S. and across Europe want to downplay and discredit the mounting concerns regarding a constant influx of migrants primarily from Africa and the Middle East.

But in Germany, the courts took that effort one step further by charging the leader of its right-wing AFD party with a crime for her post advising of the dangers open borders pose to German women.

According to European Conservative:

The Verden regional court in Lower Saxony has upheld a verdict against Rotenburg AfD leader Marie-Thérèse Kaiser for incitement to hatred. The 27-year-old was also found guilty in the appeal hearing on Monday of inciting hatred against Afghan local workers.

For this, the politician now has to pay 100 day fines (a type of fine related to daily income of the convicted) plus a fine of €60, a total of €6,000. In Germany, you are considered to have a criminal record if you are sentenced to pay more than 90 day fines.

The charge was based on a post that Kaiser had spread on her social media accounts in August 2021. In it, she wrote: “Afghanistan refugees; Hamburg SPD mayor for ‘unbureaucratic’ acceptance; Welcoming culture for gang rape?”

Among other things, the politician linked to an article showing that Afghans in Germany are particularly heavily involved in gang rape.

Despite linking her post to a story that seemed to back up her claim, she was reportedly convicted and ordered to pay a hefty fine.

The incident sparked criticism on social media:

Even Elon Musk weighed in:

She’s not the only prominent European politician who has faced criminal charges for seemingly innocuous social media posts.

As Fox News reported last year:

House Republicans want the Biden administration to step in to help two Finnish officials who are “stand[ing] trial for simply being Christians,” and echoing biblical views on marriage and sexuality.

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, and 15 of his GOP colleagues issued a scathing letter calling for action against a “rogue prosecutor” who has “unjustly targeted” Finnish Parliament member Päivi Räsänen and Bishop Juhana Pohjola over a tweeted Bible verse critical of homosexuality and a 20-year-old booklet touting traditional marriage.

“This case will have worldwide ramifications,” the lawmakers sated in a letter to Ambassador-at-Large Rashad Hussain and Douglas Hickey, ambassador to Finland.

Here’s some more information about that case:
