    It's a good thing that there are posters here who scour the net looking for anything that makes Jews look bad so we can remain informed of these important world events.

    Anything that makes Jews look bad? You lost me. This makes the kids parents look bad. Why would you take a bad decision made by one or two people and relate that to millions of other people. That is quite a leap. wow.

    It was lost you because you are completely ignorant of this poster's posting history.

    most likely yes, also there is an element of guilty conscience. Dutch Jews were easily recognized because we had a very good civil registration. One of the registered things was which religion people adhered to, plus the address etc. When the Germans invaded and took over all the city halls/local rule they could just delve into the towns registration files and pick out everyone who was Jewish.

    You're right. I am. Perhaps that knowledge would have affected how I reacted to your post.

    No offense, but if you deny one to speak their mind on a given subject... You can't claim to be a free speech nation. It's akin to "slightly pregnant".
    Nothing in excess.

    It doesn't, just some douchbags who happen to be from Israel. But as soon as Israel gets mentioned anywhere, you'll notice the same few people immediately decrying it as antisemitism or something of the matter.

    But the parents are rather big jerks for the costume; though they are free to do as they want.

    That's likely because they would be.

    No offense, but living under the nazis for 4 years and watching your neighbors hauled away to extermination camps may slightly affect your viewpoint on free speech, especially when you've witnessed first hand what the consequences can be of that speech.

    Not sure I follow. What are the consequences of free speech that worsened the Holocaust? And does that mean that in today's world it's ok to infringe upon free speech because what someone is saying is stupid. If we can regulate and limit stupid, let me know, cause there's many applications for such restriction.

    That is why I said pretty liberal. If you privately think or speak your mind about a given subject that is your right, to publicly deny the holocaust goes a step further than that. That is where the law comes into effect.
