Nazi Death Camps – Disneyland for racists

It’s sometimes very difficult to defend the concept of free speech, especially when one hears news like this (click here.)

David Irving, the revisionist “historian” who has already served time in Austria for holocaust denial, is conducting tours of Nazi death camps, charging in the region of £1500 per head.

He has described Auschwitz as a “Disney- style tourist attraction”  so his tours won’t be very instructive, unless of course you simply want to learn new ways to belittle entire groups of people you’ve never met by lying through your teeth.

I still believe in free speech, and there can’t be any exceptions, but sometimes I can’t help wishing there could be.
