Right-wing British historian, David Irving, has been convicted in Austria of denying the Holocaust and sentenced to three years in prison.
Strange that this just happened today. Hypocrites. I feel ashamed, I hope Brussels steps in.
I really dont get this, why is this "abuse of freedom of speech" because as Swek said its a part of democracy
I dont want to be ignorant again, i will respect jewish sentiments, I'm not questioning the holocaust (But I haven't studied it either, im not much of a history dude, but i hope not knowing about it isnt also a crime) but why shouldnt anyone be allowed to question it. I might say here that so what if they are offended, its a part of democracy, shouldnt that guy have the freedom to say whatever he likes after all he is only SAYING it, why should he go to jail for it, I dont understand how this is differentBeing offended is the very nature of Democracy. You're offended, I'm offended that's just the way it is.
