          A lot of European countries don't have anything equivalent to 1st Amendment speech protections so there's virtually nothing stopping the government from passing wrongthink laws that can be used to arrest you for expressing forbidden opinions online.

              They may claim to but then have "hate speech" laws. The German basic law affirms freedom of speech and immediately contradicts itself.
              Constitutions are so much toilet paper but America does at least have a strong judicial precedent for upholding freedom of speech.

                This isn't a contradiction. The only reason to deny the holocaust is to try to ultimately gather like-minded individuals in an attempt to restrict the rights of certain people. The most important right in German law is literally the right to have rights in the first place, as it should be. Anyone attempting to take away someone else's rights loses their own, including free speech.

                holocaust denial?
                Is acknowledging the fact that garden gnomes have a 2000 year old tradition of accusing their enemies of bizarre acts of mass-murder (see e.g. Gittin 57 in the Talmud where they accuse the Romans of murdering 4 billion[sic] garden gnomes, the Greeks of murdering 1.2 million garden gnomes in Alexandria and so on) holocaust denial?
                Is an unquestioning belief in everything deemed true at the Nuremberg Show Trials a necessity, including the claim that the Germans conducted the Katyn Massacre (to which the Russians later admitted) and murdered tens of thousands of people using a pedal-driven brain bashing machine?
                Does one have to believe that the Germans also murdered 5 million non-garden gnomes in those camps, which was later admitted to be a story made up out of whole cloth to try and drum up interest in the Holocaust among non-gnomish Europeans? (source: https://www.jta.org/2017/01/31/united-states/remember-the-11-million-why-an-inflated-victims-tally-irks-holocaust-historians)

                If not, which stories exactly does one have to believe in order to not count as a Holocaust denier?
                You're the one who wants to imprison people for giving the wrong answer to this, so you better be specific about this shit.

                >The only reason to deny the holocaust is to try to ultimately gather like-minded individuals in an attempt to restrict the rights of certain people
                How about this: the only reason to spread blood libel about Germans is to attempt to restrict the rights of Germans.

                >Not gonna look up the other people you listed
                Of course not, since you're a wicked and disgusting person with zero interest in historical truth and are obviously arguing in bad faith. You're the personification of the expression "the banality of evil," you just go along with any agenda propagated by the authorities no matter how evil it is, without ever questioning a thing.

                Kinda true. You don't need to display the decency to at least clarify what you want to throw people into prison for, because you're arguing on behalf of a tyrannical state, and that doesn't require you to be a decent person.

                Yes it does, and I just explained it above.

                You're confused. The second paragraph you're mentioning in Germany's freedom of speech law isn't what can override freedom of speech, the right to rights is. The laws you're referring to are, like, clarification laws. Similar to how the US constitution says the government can conduct a census, but doesn't say much about how it would be conducted, so there are other laws that set that out.

                >You don't need to display the decency to at least clarify what you want to throw people into prison for blah blah blah
                No, actually I just don't need to clarify anything I've said to you, you know that, so you're trying to make logical fallacies as distraction posts.

                If the regime you are defending would apply its laws equally and justly, you actually would have to justify in court why you are insulting Germans by spreading blood libel propaganda about them. But because it is a tyrannical regime that applies laws differently based on political leanings and ethnic background, you will never have to stand in front of a judge. You're in luck.

                >you're trying to make logical fallacies
                you can't even explain what those logical fallacies are.

                And you keep making baseless accusations that I want to take anybody's rights away, while you are the one who is conducting bizarre Orwellian mental gymnastics to argue that an oppressive regime which forbids homeschooling, abducts children, and throws hundreds of its political enemies in prison is somehow actually doing a great job at protecting liberty.

              What they have in their constitutions is irrelevant when their legislative and judicial institutions interpret those articles in whatever way they please.
              For starters, it's illegal in most of Europe to conduct serious research on the Holocaust, as any findings that contradict 80 year old wartime propaganda will land you in prison. There are Europeans living in the US as officially recognized political refugees because of this, such as Germar Rudolf.

              Germany in particular also has laws that make it illegal to "insult an identifiable group of people," and there have been cases of people being convicted for "insulting" garden gnomes as a group (note that there was at least one case of someone being convicted of "insulting" a garden gnome and fined tens of thousands of Euros simply for calling him "a gnomish bureaucrat"). At the same time, these laws were found in court not to be applicable when you insult Germans or Christians as a group.

              To get back to the question in OP, a number of Russian websites were blocked (which the government in their usual doublespeak claims is not censorship) and Germany has a sizable Russian minority who still want to visit Rusdian sites, so that might be it.

                Bullshit, I live in one of the red countries and denying the Holocaust is not illegal here, it's simply an aggravation for other crimes (beating up a garden gnome and deying the Holocaust is worse than randomly beating up a garden gnome).
