    Free Speech allows one to burn bibles and burn the American flag and draw images of Muhammad and curse Christianity but don't deny the alleged holocaust. This is outlandish that a thought can land you in jail. Americans will soon be victim to this when questioning the Holocaust.

    Holocaust denier's jail term upped - General News - Austrian Times Online News - English Newspaper

    An infamous neo-Nazi has had his prison sentence extended over controversial statements in two books.

    Gerd Honsik was sentenced to two years in prison by Vienna Criminal Court judge Andreas Böhm yesterday (Fri).

    The 68-year-old Austrian doubted the existence of gas chambers at Nazi era death camps in his books "Der Juden Drittes Reich" (The Jews’s Third Reich) and "Schelm und Scheusal" (Prankster and Monster).

    Honsik was convicted of breaking Austrian laws against spreading Nazi ideology in his book "Freispruch für Hitler?"...

    Since when does Free Speech apply to Austria?

    I can see why people call you USArmyRetard.

    This happened in Austria. They have different rules there.

    In many european countries the display of Nazi emblems is against the law.

    Personally, I would be worried about someone who thinks Hannibal Lector or Ted Bundy to be a hero. I don't know about jail, but they defiantly would belong in a state hospital.

    Since they can't prove the "Holocaust" ever happened, they have to throw anyone who questions it in jail.

    Funny, if something's true, that usually stands by itself!

    Wait for a bunch of conspiracy theory crapola.
    The Holocaust is among the best attested events in history, with literally millions of documents, photographs, video, and personal memoirs on all sides.
    It takes an act of sheer anti Semitism to deny it. No wonder Germans want to put such people in jail. They're so crazy they belong in some kind of institution.

    The Holohoax is the biggest fraud in the history of the earth.

    In many countries in europe a person can go to prison for questioning the validity of the Holohoax myth.

    The question is: "What are the officials trying to hide"?

    If the Holohoax is such an iron clad case.

    Then they should welcome any and all examination and review of this alleged historical event.

    What bugs me about these crazies is the attitude of "Of course it didn't happen, but what a damn good idea."
