The Ron Paul supporters at the Daily Paul have a different view of things. In a post headlined Holocaust Denial is a Crime? (read here), they've concluded that the answer to that question should be no. Here's what the post's author "sempiternal" writes:
Contrary to what the Ron Paul campaign website claims, Zundel was not imprisoned for "not believing something", but for promoting racial hatred in a decades long campaign in which he was a key organizer. This involved publishing and distributing many thousands of copies of books and pamphlets devoted to falsified history and hate speech. Zundel worked in this crusade with an international network of fellow neo-Nazis with the intention of promoting that cause. He was not convicted of not believing in somthing, but of campaigning to promote racial hatred in a country where they know first hand where ignoring such a threat can lead.
While the Daily Paul is anxious to defend the neo-Nazi Ernst Zundel as being innocent of any crime, they are more than happy to convict others. Take President Obama, who they have convicted of war crimes (here), treason (here) and unnamed offenses purportedly stemming from promoting immigration amnesty, a position which he has not actually taken. They have also organized a campaign to impeach President Obama based on -- well, I read the petition but the actual charges are a little difficult to discern. They involve absurd allegations that Obama was born in Kenya and has committed immigration and election fraud by claiming to have been born in Hawaii. (Read here.) Please read these columns before you write me to say that the Daily Paul's charges against Obama are hyperbolic, ironic, or otherwise not to be taken literally. This website is filled with absurdly strident columns literally charging that President Obama should be convicted of various crimes.
It's not only the president who gets this treatment from the Daily Paul. Check out the post headlined "the real patriot act" authored by a Ron Paul supporter calling himself "patriot till death". (Read here.) Here it is in it's entirety:
exposing,identifying,arresting,prosecuting and upon conviction of treason, executing zionist traitors is not anti-semitic.it is however our lawful, constitutional and patriotic duty as americans to preserve, protect and defend our constitution and the republic it defines against all enemies foreign and domestic.
We also have a moral obligation to past, present and future generations of a truly free and independent people.

Since September 2008, the Daily Paul has had that anti-Semitic screed advocating killing Zionists on their website, where it's attracted a large number of supportive comments. This as the Daily Paul defends one of the world's most influential neo-Nazis against his conviction for committing real and very harmful crimes.
There continues to be some very troubling things about the Ron Paul campaign.
