I've read with interest about this case since I first saw it. They were convicted and sentenced to prison for belonging to a group called National Action. My understanding of this organization is its a neo-Nazi thing. I also remember that one of its members killed one of your governments leaders a while back. Leading to its being banned. I am ………. amazed (?) …… confused (?) …. about this. One. Are their many political parties/ organizations "banned" over there? If so, are they all right wing extremists? The fact that this group is banned is a little confusing to me. We, over here in the States, have many of these kind of "people". Yes we have an American Nazi Party and many many others of the same ilk. We have KKK groups falling out our behinds. We can attempt to curtail some of their activities i.e. wearing hoods in public, overt violence etc. but its mostly if not completely done on a local level. State and municipal levels. There's no Federal/National laws against these hate mongers. Now MOST of us here do not subscribe to these kind of beliefs or join these kind of groups but we could if we so desired. What is YOUR thoughts on the National Action being banned? Not if you agree with them but that the fact of belonging to groups of this sort can lead to prison. With no other cause I should add. I mean if they take action on their vile beliefs then prison is a no brainer but does the mere fact of belonging justify prison? Now, I think these two are reprehensible for sure, I mean naming your child after Hitler?!? C'mon. Teaching children to hate and to make Nazi salutes?!? C'mon. But …… membership only in a group being deserving of prison in and of itself? I must admit I have a little trouble wrapping my head around that. Your views?
