    It was about 1989, he made some speeches where he said it didn't happen. Chap was an author.

    He now says that he accepts that the holocaust took place.

    He got 3 years.

    I can't make up my mind as to what is more asinine, the inability to accept the holocaust happened, or the law that put this man behind bars.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    You think laws against this type of thing are utterly stupid, really.

    You think people should be jailed for free speech, really

    I think people should be jailed for innovative stupidity, really.

    Give them a microphone, by all means, but yeah...put 'em in jail.

    Yes, obviously.

    I support Abu Hamza being jailed and I think Nick Fuckwit the head of the BNP should also be jailed for what he said (he's being re-tried apparently).

    Free speech yes, consequences also yes. Society has a right to protect itself from hatemongers and those who would cause the suffering of others by their words and what their words lead to.

    In that case he should be jailed for inciting violence or some other crime. Jailing him for what he believes is as stupid as believing it in the first place.
