A senior member of the Hungarian Communist Workers' Party has received a one-year suspended sentence for wearing a red star, the communist symbol which is banned under Hungarian law. ...Sporting communist or Nazi symbols is forbidden in Hungary. The red star was banned after Hungary threw off communism in 1989.
British historian David Irving, who once famously said that Adolf Hitler knew nothing about the systematic slaughter of 6 million Jews, has been arrested in Austria on a warrant accusing him of denying the Holocaust. ...If formally charged, tried and convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison, said Otto Schneider of the public prosecutor's office.
For example, former SS-Untersturmfuehrer Dr. Hans Münch confirmed this in his testimony at the International Nuremberg Trial (Trial of the Major War Criminals, 1948, Vol. VIII, p. 313-321). He said:
I repeatedly witnessed guided tours of civilians and also of commissions of the Red Cross and other parties within the camp, and I was able to ascertain that the camp leadership arranged it masterfully to conduct these guided tours in such a way that the people being guided around did not see anything about inhuman treatment. The main camp was shown only and in this main camp there were so-called show blocks, particularly block 13, that were especially prepared for such guided tours and that were equipped like a normal soldier's barracks with beds that had sheets on them, and well-functioning washrooms.
When was this alleged Red Cross study published? As there is abundant photographic evidence, as well as testimony of participants, documenting the workings of the death camps including the crematoriums there seems to be a disconnect here.

There are many people who do actually find these arguments convincing.
I think he may be referring to the trampling of free speech in Europe, as referenced in recent headlines:

Are you one of them?
I think most sensible people will always find totalitarian ideologies like communism and Nazism to be repugnant, but is outlawing free speech the way to defeat these horrible ideas?
Is the European mindset so contrary to the principles of individual liberty that the right to free speech is being trampled?
an allegation of facts, which have been proven to be untrue by innumerable eye witness testimonies and documents, by the conclusions of courts in numerous criminal proceedings and by the insights gained through the science of history. Taken as an isolated statement, an allegation of said content therefore does not enjoy the protection of free speech.
