The Nazis didn't allow free speech either

From what I've read about it I most definitely believe the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews, plus a host of other religious and ethnic groups.

I also firmly believe if you want to stand on the corner and preach that it didn't happen or that the Earth orbits the Moon and not vice versa, you have a right to do so no matter how idiotic most of us will consider you to be. Freedom of speech is THE most important tenet of western democracies.

Therefore, I don't understand an Austrian law that says you can't.
