    Free speech is one thing; but, stupidity and causing blatant offence by it should always be a crime.
    I think you may be guilty. I'm quite offended by your stupidity, and am making a citizens arrest.

    Indeed and then hide behind the cloak of history claiming this was all in the past.

    My 80 year old Aunty says blacks rob people because they're black and when I was going out with a foreign girl, she told me the girl would rob my bank account. Should she be in prison for such brazen stupidity?

    Neo-Nazi's are the scum of the earth. But they have a right to say what they want, as long as they're not yapping on about actually killing Jews.

    Anyway, I am getting away from the OP. What Le Pen said was not tantamount as denying the Holocaust, although it was obviously odious. Not at all a punishment though.

    Johnny, I am still waiting for you to point out inaccuracies or "drivel" from my Oglaigh na hEireann thread. Until then, we have nothing to say on here. I actually never justified any killings, at all. You are just completely scandalized by the truth and cannot accept it. Not to mention you are a flaming west-brit. But being a west-brit is not a crime nor defending the reasons the P.I.R.A came about. And thank god we live in a society where we can have these discussions and debates and a few insults along the way.

    What an absolutely ridiculous post from the sites most fanatically biased poster. Seriously? How many other people should be placed in prison for their views?

    Free speech is pointless if it doesn't apply to those with whom we disagree.

    If you had lived in a country which the Nazi's invaded, I wonder if you would have the same opinion?

    An attack on Freedom of Speech IMO

    - and Le Pen is right

    While there were atrocities the French were not particularly harshly treated compared to say what happened in Poland, Russia, Yugoslavia and indeed Slovakia

    So should Communism be banned? After all, it might offend the Poles in Ireland if the Communist Party of Ireland paraded down O'Connell Street with pictures of Stalin one day.
