Holocaust Denier Banned From France For 40 Years

    After getting stopped on her way to France, a convicted Holocaust denier learned she is banned from entering the country for 40 years, The Jewish Chronicle reported.

    Alison Chabloz took to Gab, a social media platform popular among the so-called “alt-right,” to let her online followers know she had been “banned from entering France until 2059.”

    Last year, the British blogger was found guilty of creating “grossly offensive” anti-Semitic songs, which were filled with jokes about Holocaust victims and claims that Jews controlled the world. She was forbidden from posting on social media for a year and received a 20-week prison sentence.

    It is illegal in France to deny the Holocaust. Police, immigration and customs officers also are permitted to stop anyone at transport terminals if they “are suspected of involvement in terrorism or any other criminal activity,” according to The Jewish Chronicle.
