Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Giving credence to historical revisionism and antisemitic rhetoric
It's actually pretty similar in Europe for Holocaust deniers. I don't for a second support the ideas broadly presented by Holocaust deniers (ie "it never happened" or "there's a big conspiracy about it"), but my understanding is that good faith academic research that concludes the number of Jews killed during the Holocaust is somewhat lower than the generally accepted numbers could be considered a criminal act. These laws are intended to target bad faith/racist Holocaust deniers, however I also think it's important for historians to rexamine any/all historical events, and they should face academic scrutiny, not legal scrutiny.
