But it is true that Germany has less free speech than the US. Because of the Nazi past, outrageous pro-Nazi, anti-semitic statements and other forms of hate that would be legal in the US are illegal in Germany.
Given their history, it's an understandable restriction.

Very true.

An interesting aspect of the Freedomhouse.org survery is that there are a number of countries which get the highest possible rating (1 on a scape of 1 - 7)for political rights, but a slightly lower 2 rating for civil liberties: Belize, Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Grenada, Hungary, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania
