    but this claim is demonstrably false. Here in the US, the KKK and a wide variety of militia groups are allowed to participate both collectively and individually in the electoral process. Thankfully, they do not generally succeed but they do run.

    Oh, and it is up to individual countries to determine the qualifications for their citizens to participate in politics and elections. It cannot legitimately be imposed on them from the outside.

      You can't prove it false with anecdotal evidence.

      The u.s. has an extremely broad interpretation of Freedom of Speech.  For example, In Germany or even Israel terrorist or merely hate groups are banned from participating in elections.
