    People in the US might not like it, but I am happy to live in a country where denial of the holocaust is illegal.

    I suppose if there are three possibilities as follows:

    1 -- allow the Holocaust denial and hate speech, but all the full reaction to the hatred.

    2 -- do not allow the Holocaust denial and hatred, which would then not engender the reaction.

    3 -- allow the holocaust denial and hatred, but punish those who react.

    Of the three choices, I actually prefer the first, as it allows full expression of the outrage. The third choice is the worst BY FAR, as it acts to support the Holocaust denial and hatred by attempting to eliminate the response to it. The second choice is between the two for me, so while I am not absolutely against it, I would prefer that my rights to ridicule the things that indulge in it not be limited.

    We are a pretty liberal country, especially when it is about freedoms (freedom to choose to have an abortion, choose to have euthanasia, choose to marry someone from your own gender) but when it comes to holocaust denial one can get prosecuted for doing it.

    Nothing about anti-semirism requires some idiot to attempt and justify a rather tasteless children's costume. Not only as a means to counter such thoughts is it totally ineffective, but they have absolutely nothing to do with each other

    Are you at all familiar with the OP's posting history?

    Could it be because they have some personal experience with the Holocaust?

    May I suggest reading a brief history of the Netherlands under German occupation during World War II?
