Free Speech Doesn't Exist in EU

We've said it before and will say it again. Why is it the more liberal your country becomes the quicker it is to dump freedom of speech?

Here's a story from Germany about the government shutting down two groups because of "holocaust denying." Yep, holocaust denial is a crime in Germany and in several other European nations.

Although we clearly don't agree with anything either of these two idiotic groups stand for... they still should have the right to spout their garbage.

We are reminded of one of our most favorite quotes.

"I have always been among those who believed that the greatest freedom of speech was the greatest safety, because if a man is a fool the best thing to do is to encourage him to advertise the fact by speaking."
- Woodrow Wilson
