When something is so true you go to jail for questioning it.
88 year old woman sent to prison for a Thought Crime:
88-year-old German grandmother Ursula Haverbeck has been sentenced to two and a half years imprisonment for having the wrong opinion.
That’s right; the state of North Rhine-Westphalia has determined that this elderly woman is to be sent to prison for questioning certain historical events.
Those who have followed the case of Ursula Haverbeck will not be surprised however, for this is her 7th conviction in the last decade for the same “crime”. Her first experience on the wrong side of the law came in June 2004, when she was ordered to pay a €5,400.00 fine for an article she published in Stimme des Gewissens (Voice of Conscience) in which she simply revised the numbers of Jews who allegedly died during the Second World War.
After all, it is not just “denial” which is a crime. Under Section 130 of the German Constitution, it is illegal to, for instance, claim that 5 million instead of 6 million Jews were gassed during the Third Reich, thereby minimising the seriousness of the Holocaust.
Her subsequent encounters with the law have been of a similar nature; in 2007 she was again convicted of the crime of “sedition” (inciting hatred and revolt) for an article published in the same magazine, simply for suggesting readers view Hitler for his domestic achievements as opposed to the war.
