I’m going to start this post by stating the obvious: The Holocaust happened.
That being said, I don’t think it’s appropriate to jail Holocaust deniers. David Irving did not physically harm the person or property of a nonconsenting other. So why should he be jailed for three years? He should be ridiculed, not jailed.
Using Nazi tactics (ie: punishing “thought crime”) to fight neo-Nazis just makes them martyrs.
