Germany proposes Europe-wide ban of Holocaust revisionism and Nazi symbols
Germany intends to introduce a Europe-wide law banning the display of Nazi symbols and making denial of the Holocaust a crime to fulfil its “historical obligation” 62 years after the liberation of Auschwitz.
Brigitte Zypries, the Justice Minister, will today outline plans to punish with up to three years in prison anyone in the European Union who publicly rejects the Nazi slaughter of six million Jews.
. . . . Laws banning the denial of the Holocaust already exist in 10 of the 27 EU states and Latvia and Estonia ban the display of communist symbols.
Enough is enough. The USA should impose economic sanctions on these countries that deny freedom of expression. Private boycotts of products of these countries would also be in order. I was disappointed to see France on the list of European countries that ban holocaust revisionism -- I have bought a lot of French-made bicycle equipment over the years.
