    denying the Holocaust would be like denying WW2 – it's all real history. He belongs in a mental ward…tied, watching videos of the victims till he cries, G_d help me, I am a sinner!

  2. Anonymous says:

    Holocaust claims should be as subject to question, debate, revision or denial as any other historical assertion. This man's sentence is a crime against freedom of speech.

  3. You, sir, are as nutty as the blogger. He belongs in a mental institute.

  4. yes yes mental ward and such for daring to challenge your orthodox version which has already been scientifically debunked (who knows how much more could've been learned if more research was allowed to continue). No doubt if you had your way it'd be illegal to question you and others of your cult whatsoever, eh? The way it was in early Soviet times? After all, who are we to question the self appointed chosen? And no doubt, some of you probably even believe it.. too sad for words.

  5. Cody Flecker says:

    The Holocaust was a real event let by real people. I knew many Germans who took part in that event, and to deny that is actually happened is an absurdity.

  6. Look at all this anti-whitism. In the 60's, anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white countries to bring in millions of non-whites. Then anti-whites forced ALL and ONLY white people to “integrate” or face penalties for being “naziswhowantokill6millionjews.” Now anti-whites are praising and counting down the days till ALL and ONLY white children are minorities and extinct EVERYWHERE. That makes it genocide. “Anti-racist” is a codeword for anti-white. /watch? v=lKDeyuM0-Og

  7. I wonder why it's so interesting to deny Holocaust and not the Gulag or Mao's kz's.
    Why is it even "sicentifically debunked"? I mean nobody doubt the reallity of gravity even though sicence tells us that the only reason we don't jump from skyscrapers are that everybody till now died from hitting the ground.

    Criminalizing Holocaust denying, is as absurd as denying the Holocaust.
