Free Speech


The British historian David Irving has been sentenced to three years in prison in Austria for saying in 1989 that the holocaust did not happen. So where is the western outrage? Where are the people marching in the streets? Where are the newspapers republishing his speeches in solidarity for free speech?

Although I admit that comparing Denmark and Austria is like comparing apples and pears, still it makes Europe look like a bunch of hypocrites. Maybe Europeans need six months for the message to sink in too.
