Ok, this I don't get. To deny The Holocaust, you'd have to be a bit whacked. To publicly promote your POV, you'd have to be as ballsey as you are whacked. And to publish a book on the topic... well, fee speech and all that.<br><br>But to be tried in a criminal court? And sentenced to 3 years in prison??? <br><br>I give this guy no quarter for his beliefs. And I'd probably shout him down if I heard him give a speech. But prison? Hullo? <br><br>
When in Rome...<br><br>Here's the law he broke: "He was convicted under a 1992 law, which applies to "whoever denies, grossly plays down, approves or tries to excuse the National Socialist genocide or other National Socialist crimes against humanity in a print publication, in broadcast or other media."<br><br>Bush dissension will be a crime here in Amerika before you know it...<br><br>
I hear local muslim groups are a bit confused too. They see printing heretical cartoons of their prophet is an exercise of free speech, but this guy gets locked up for exercising the same right.<br><br><br>- This is gonna get pretty interesting. <br>- Define "interesting". <br>- Oh, God, oh, God, we're all gonna die..

Can you imagine our own SkinHeadNeoNazi population's reaction to the enactment of such a law here? They'd scream bloody murder for the ACLU, the ACLU would defend them, and god forgive me, so would I. Against this "thought police" law. Nothing else.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]And I'm the one that jaded you . . .</font color=blue>
