Hate Speech, Hindus and the Holocaust

Germany hopes to use its E.U. presidency to push through a controversial law criminalizing Holocaust denial and incitement to hate crimes in all 27 European member states, many of which oppose the measure on free speech grounds. Hate-based crime is on the rise in Germany.

Religious groups in five countries also oppose the law, saying its ban on swastika displays will affect 2.5 million European Hindus who still regard it as a sacred symbol.

  1. Take a look at who the Germans are who are pushing this crud, and I will bet dollars to donuts that they are Jewish. Free sheech for them, supression for everyone else. People can be jailed for 3-5 years through kangaroo courts for disagreeing with the Jews today

  2. Why can’t the Germans just allow there to be complete freedom of speech? They already ban people from reading Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” and prevent them from doing the Nazi salute. Why do they have to ban something because it’s bad and allow only tolerant ideologies to express themselves?

  3. I THINK THESE LAWS ARE IMPORTANT TO SUPPRESS THE DEFECTIVE DNA OF GERMANS AND OTHER CAUCASIANS WHICH IS CALLED R FACTOR (RACISM). IF LEFT UNCHECKED, IT WILL TURN PEOPLE INTO MONSTERS LIKE HITLER.I THINK THE A BOMB KNOCKED THIS GENE OUT OF THE JAPANESE.
