What I really don't get is people who don't understand media at all.
You know perfectly well from firsthand experience that media coverage of a complicated topic, e.g. Bitcoin, is... well... "off track" to say the least, always on the brink of "utter rubbish" if we're honest.
Why do you believe that media coverage on something way more complicated than Bitcoin would be any closer to the truth?

The "Pirate Party leader" in question here is actually a local representative of the Pirate Party in Berlin.
He was not arrested for citing the poem but rather for breaking the local agreement with the police to hold a public event under certain conditions, which he did not meet. This is basically the same as if you officially rented a public town hall to hold a meeting for a gardening event and then actually the event turns out to be a fireworks display. It's just not what the police will accept.

BTW, obviously the "Pirate Party leader" in question did this on purpose to get some media coverage. The German Pirate Party desperately needs that Roll Eyes

Yeah, well... I'm gonna go build my own blockchain, with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the blockchain!

Making fun of politics is in many cases what keeps the working class going. You know, people with very little power need something. I can't see how working against this could be a good political decision.

The German Politburo needs to explain better to the rest of the democratic world how humorless it is... The more (arrests), the merrier...

Turkey + EU = Censorship? 5 times Erdogan tried to get Europe to silence his critics

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is already notorious for pursuing opposition journalists, artists and politicians at home. Recently he has moved to punish them outside his borders, often with acquiescence from European allies.

As German TV satirist Jan Bohmermann read out a poem implicating Erdogan in sex acts with goats and a proclivity for child pornography last month, he knew exactly what he was doing – testing the patience of Turkey, which had already complained about a satirical song weeks earlier, and the tolerance of his own government.

Unsurprisingly, Turkey was incensed. But perhaps a bigger shock was when Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed with Ankara that the poem was “deliberately provocative,” and let Bohmermann face prosecution under a rarely-used law that punishes those who insult foreign dignitaries.

This unleashed a storm of criticism aimed at both Merkel and Erdogan, amplified by their coziness, following the recent refugee return deal. Last week, Merkel backpedaled, defending free speech and saying her views were a “mistake” - without reversing her actions.

P.S. By the way, what about other lines?

Freedom of speech should have a limit, people mix these things when hit the limit and most of the people in this case would do like erdogan. I know people make jokes and humor but not to exaggerate it.

Where will you put the limit at? Making fun of a president is definitely not crossing the limits. I have seen hundreds of Western comedians making fun of non-European heads of state, such as Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Hassan Rouhani, and Evo Morales. None of them have been prosecuted. So my question is, what makes Recep Tayyip Erdoğan any different from them?
Answer is very simple, they're not Erdoğan.
Europe should cut ties with that country instead of bowing for every demand they make.
That's impossible because Erdoğan blackmails them. He has a quite useful blackmailing tool, few millions of domesticated migrants, who are ready to be injected into the EU.
That can easily be changed by deporting all Turkish nationals with a criminal record from Europe. They are Turkish citizens, deporting them will be easy.
Europe does not dare to do this of course.
