Default Should Holocaust denial be illegal?

Should it be illegal to say that the Holocaust didn't happen, or that it wasn't severe as it is believed to be?

It's illegal in multiple European countries, as well as Israel, to deny that the Holocaust happened, and in some places even illegal just to say that you don't think as many Jews were killed as the generally accepted value (6 million)


I don't think it should be illegal. It shouldn't be illegal to have an opinion or a belief, as long as you aren't acting on it in a harmful way.

Like you said, as long as they're not practicing violence upon others because of their opinion, it shouldn't be illegal. In a country that supposedly promotes freedom, this should never happen.

I think it shouldn't even tho you have to be really stupid to deny it


Denying the holocaust is like denying that that Bush was president.

And how would you enforce thought crime?

I don't see why it should be illegal. Freedom of speech yo.

Although you gotta be pretty damn retarded to believe it didn't happen.

I think denying it, acting although it didn't happen or even not teaching it is incredibly unhealthy as I believe that if we act like it doesn't happen we're bound to repeat the same mistakes but I also don't think that mindset should be illegal.

Then again, the holocaust is so blown up that you almost forget what the soviets did. Or the Chinese. Or the Turks.

Tell us more, please

Lemme guess, it was all fake and done by the Zionist Illuminati to make everyone like Jews so they can take over the world? Because they've failed in both departments.
