Austrian Fined for Offending Muslims by Yodeling

You know authoritarian dhimmitude has gotten out of hand when Austrians aren't even allowed to yodel lest it "offend" Muslim colonists.

An Austrian has been fined for yodelling while mowing his lawn, according to a report.
The Kronen Zeitung newspaper claims Helmut G. was told by a court in Graz, Styria, that his yodelling offended his next-door Muslim neighbours.

Herr G. says he was not making fun of the Muslim call to prayer, but yodeling because that's what Austrians do when they're in a good mood. The judge fixed his good mood by fining him €800, apparently agreeing with the Muslims that absolutely everything is all about them.

But Muslims don't so be quiet.
