2. Oh I totoally understand the intention of this law and ....

... it actually prevents me from being able to express my true feelings on the matter. Here we call it the gag law. I could not post half of the threads here about Trump if I was talking about Spanish politicians. That is was this is about and has nothing to do with hate speech, it's just further normalisation of the far right in the EU.

Spain was never invaded by the Nazis, in fact they lent some support to them but never entered the war. They had their own fascist dictatorship to worry about which survived as recently as the late 70's and early 80's and clearly you don't have to scratch too far to see that it has not been eradicated fully.

Here is another couple of links with some of the other things we are not allowed to do.
