NBC News and the Associated Press on Tuesday reported glowingly on the news that right-wing writer and commentator Alain Soral was sentenced to prison in Switzerland for calling a journalist a "fat lesbian" two years ago on Facebook.

From NBC News/The AP, "Swiss LGBTQ groups praise jail sentence for commentator who called journalist a 'fat lesbian' ":
LGBTQ groups hailed the 60-day jail sentence a court in Switzerland gave to a writer and commentator for deriding a journalist as a "fat lesbian," among other critical remarks.

The Lausanne court sentenced French-Swiss polemicist Alain Bonnet, who goes by Alain Soral, for the crimes of defamation, discrimination and incitement to hatred on Monday. He was ordered to pay legal fees and fines totaling thousands of Swiss francs (dollars) in addition to the time behind bars.

Soral lashed out at Catherine Macherel, a journalist for Swiss newspapers Tribune de Geneve and 24 Heures, in a Facebook video two years ago. He called her a "fat lesbian" and said Macherel's work as a "queer activist" meant she was "unhinged," according to Swiss public broadcaster RTS.
Evidently, the truth in this case was no defense.

The AP continues:
"This court decision is an important moment for justice and rights of LGBTQI people in Switzerland," Murial Waeger, co-director of the lesbian activist group LOS, said in a statement. "The conviction of Alain Soral is a strong signal that homophobic hatred cannot be tolerated in our society."

In an email Tuesday to The Associated Press, Pascal Junod, a lawyer for Soral, mockingly blasted the conviction for a "crime of opinion" and said the case aimed to probe whether a person had "sinned against the dogmas of single thought." Soral will appeal to Swiss federal court and "if necessary" to the European Court of Human Rights, the lawyer wrote.

Waeger said the verdict represented a milestone in the application of a measure approved by Swiss voters in 2020 that made it illegal to discriminate against people on the basis of sexual orientation.

Soral was convicted repeatedly in France and sentenced to jail time in 2019 for denying the Holocaust, which is a crime in France.
The world libtards are creating is one where violent thugs are released on the streets to combat "systemic racism" and "historic injustices" while law-abiding citizens are jailed for politically incorrect speech.

If it was China, Russia or Iran jailing someone for pushing LGBTism, the US State Department would be writing up a human rights report and rolling out sanctions but we all know they're not even going to acknowledge this incident took place. For all we know, Antony Blinken and Victoria Nuland pushed for Soral to be jailed through various backchannels as he's a well known political dissent and critic of Zionism.

Soral shared multiple tweets addressing his jail sentence on his official Telegram channel:
