To be fair though, the right wings are officially the Liberal Party. Contrary to Germany, this country does not have the luxus of a special neo-nazi party but has them instead mostly inside the Liberal Party and its various splinter groups. Not that their disguise is very good with all the shit they're outputting...albino boo said:Yeah its not like that far right parties got 29% of vote in the last election in Austria and received congratulations from Nick Griffin from the BNP. Opps sorry they did. Just because its 70 years since Nazi Germany was defeated doesn't mean that there aren't Nazis politicly active today.Matthew94 said:It's been 70 fucking years, get over it.
If you stop giving a shit and stop treating it like a huge taboo so will everyone else.
It sounds stupid (and totally is) but theoretically yes. And it's by far not the only symbol, there's a whole list mostly consisting of Viking or Germanic symbols.The_root_of_all_evil said:So the photos I showed above are banned? Mandalas and the like? Even if it's obvious they have no NASI/NAZI connection?vxicepickxv said:It's a zero tolerance law. The closest to English you can get is NO SWASTIKAS. EVER.TheBlackKnight said:Law is law is the law ^^; Don't ask me specifics about since I can't find an english translation of it..The_root_of_all_evil said:So the Swastikas are the offensive part?
Not Mecha-Hitler? Shooting dogs? Bloody corpses? Nazi Regalia?
Well, that's ok then.
It's one of the reason zero tolerance laws are dumb.
The ancient Greek Swastika you were talking about would count towards some sort of "museum and exhibition tolerance" but simple things like pubicly displaying the Heil Hitler greeting could get you in a lot of trouble here. Wouldn't be the first time some kids got pretty decent fines for that. I'm not sure if anyone would prosecute your baseball team but I don't believe they would be willing to put up with all the shit they'd get so it's kind of obsolete to say.
