Con

If one denies the holocaust, which has much historical documentation, one must deny all other historical events. These includes having eaten food the day previously. This is, quite simply, wrong and irresponsible, and should be banned. If one were to argue to "free speech", one must argue for "responsible speech".

When you say "should" and "ought," do you mean that in a moral sense, a pragmatic sense, or some other sense?
