    https://www.theblaze.com/news/ready-austrian-politician-prosecuted-for-inciting-hatred-online-agrees-to-therapy-in-attempt-to-avoid-criminal-conviction

    So this Austrian politician says something that was not PC and considered hate speech. I believe he called an advertisement of two gay men holding a baby as "garbage" and referred to the darker skinned man using the "N" word. But according to the article, there is an alternative to jail for such outbursts. Apparently you can take classes to avoid jail.

    Are indoctrination schools better?

    Well it beats the hell out of me.

    Let's just say they are sending him someplace to try and stop him from saying any more "bad" things.

    The funny part is, he apparently said this while drinking. I would then think they would try to curb the drinking, which loosened his tongue.

    But that is anti-alcohol. We can't have that, now can we. That would be bigoted.

    Alcohol can be a truth serum. It's likely that this guy's hateful words came from his character rather than a momentary lapse in judgement

    But the PC police are not after people telling us what they think is the truth.

    No, they wish only for us to reiterate what they tell us the truth really is.

    Therefore, anytime alcohol is involved, this becomes a problem

    The picture he commented on seems to be two gay guys with a child and besides racial bias he is showing sexual bias against gays as well.

    But Austria is well known as a racially biased country so what else is new?

    If so, should he be jailed for it?

    Do you include being required to attend traffic school in lieu of a hefty fine for a driving violation, as an unacceptable instance of “people telling us what they think is the truth”?

    To operate a motor vehicle it is reasonable to ensure that they will not kill someone with it.

    Are you really comparing this to freedom of speech?
