The Odd Couple: Mohammed Cartoons and Holocaust Deniers

Has anyone noticed the juxtaposition of the free speech debate regarding the Mohammed Cartoons and the jailing of David Irving, Holocaust Denier Extraordinaiire? A tad bit hypocritical I suppose. I have always found the concept of hate speech laws more repugnant than the restricted speech itself.

I've noticed on the blogs I read that most are against Irving going to jail at all. I've not found too many hypocritical sites that are for one and against the other. Most stand for free speech no matter how terrible it is.
