I was fine with people bringing up that some accused holocaust deniers might have faced unfair treatments, but if people are going to argue in details about the claims made by holocaust deniers, I think it's OT.



So your claims of respecting freedom of speech are worthless. Typical :D

I'll second this. Again, from what German friends have told me.
I tell these guys that it is ridiculous that Holocaust denial is a crime and this should be freedom of thought and speech. They vehemently argue that it must remain a crime. I have also discussed the relevance of "Nazi Hunters" in 2013, but these guys insist that every last one of them must be brought to justice.


You seem to have a far more balanced approach than what your German friends have, and kudos to you for that. Even one of the most well-known "holocaust deniers", German Ernst Zundel bought the original story until he moved to Canada. His story is as heartbreaking as it is fascinating, including the fact that a Jewish professor came to his aid during the early 90s in his "holocaust" denial trail. He was acquitted of all charges as a result of Prof. Dommergue's testimony.

I temped that discussion based on the fact that it's out of topic. it also doesn't belong in the culture & history section, as claims made by deniers are fiction not history. no one is stopping you in the temp forum.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

It wouldn't be OK for Europeans to dress up in 'rape of Nanjing' era Japanese uniforms because that's seriously obnoxious. That's an analogy, that is.



eeeeeeexactly. those chinese maroons in the photos would be about ready to kill the foriegner that did a japanese Nanjing version of what they just did. chinese hate japanese with a passion, yet a similar issue from another country and its a lets play dress up party?

Photo taken at an air show at Taichung's Air force Airport. Apparently, some young hipsters thought it was a good idea to sell Nazi themed clothing at the air show. People working at the booth were wearing the NAZI symbol on their arms.

I really wish I had been there to raise my voice, get red in the face, and make a scene.

Any Che T-shirts?

I once met a leftist protester who told me in as many words that the right to free speech included the right to shout down speech she disagreed with. It's all about the bandwidth. When multiple people are talking at the same time, they can't all be heard. He who shouts loudest gets his message across, even if his message is pure idiocy. That's why absolute tolerance for others' speech isn't workable. It won't be reciprocated.

What's Hipster Hitler up to these days?
Big government is for those who can't handle freedom. Political correctness is for those who can't handle reality.

Gun-free zones are where the gun violence happens. Ban gun-free zones before many more get killed. Also, gun violence in Europe is as bad as in US, and getting worse.

The most bigoted people in the world insist that they are the most open-minded, the cruelest people in the world insist that they are the most compassionate, and the most illogical insist that they are the most logical.

Just because Al Gore says there's a planetary emergency doesn't mean there's a planetary emergency. And just because somebody says it's science doesn't mean it's science.

:thumbsup: Free speech is the right to espouse idiocy and be mocked mercilessly for it.

in anime, the star of david is often used as a symbol for magic... what color is the star? light blue as the actual Israeli flag or dark purple or something? :ponder:
