The laws in Germany and Austria exist because there's still a lot of pain over what happened in the Holocaust. Americans and German-speaking nations simply tend to have a different attitude over this due to their differing cultural experiences, and I really don't think it would be wise to turn this into a debate where basically each side wants the other to be just like them.

Yes, God forbid we demand that the Europeans allow dissenting views. You're experiences justify your injustice?  What are you over there, a bunch of 14 year old girls crying yourself to sleep at night because you had a bad dream about Nazis?  Please.

Twisting words around? Check. Playground insults? Check. Describing the collective cultural experience of the holocaust as a "bad dream"? Check.

You truly are a detestable human being.

On a sidenote, I never said I agreed with the ban on holocaust denial, I simply stated why I understand it exists in specific countries. It's called objectivity. Look it up, you parochial halfwit.

I didn't twist words, but I did use a playground insult.  You had it coming.

If you're playing Devil's advocate, it is customary to say you're playing Devil's advocate.  nd you didn't say "The argument for the existence of these laws is" or "Some say the laws are needed because", what you said was "The reason the laws exist".  You can back off this position and retreat, but you staked it out pretty clearly before the tide turned against you.

I did not describe the holocaust as a bad dream, what I was referring to is your insinuation that somehow not having laws against holocaust denial would result in a future holocaust.  This was an idiotic suggestion from an idiotic poster and it richly deserved to be ridiculed.
