Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thanks for the distinctions.
As regards hate-speech laws, several continental European countries (including France and Germany) have laws against the apology of nazism, understandable in the historical context.

Yes, I'm familiar with those laws.  In The Beast Awakens, for example, Martin Lee talks about how links have been formed between European and US neo-Nazis, in part beause the Europeans import literature published over here.

I think that's an excellent example.  It would certainly be much better if the US were not awash in the analogous apology for slavery that survives to this day, particularly in the American South.
