Western hypocrisy

I'm a little annoyed at the hypocrisy of the West. "Yay, democracy", we say. But when the Palestinians elect Hamas, or the Austrians elect Joerg Haider, we say, "Oh, no, you can't vote for those people. That's not what democracy is about."
And just tonight, a man has been jailed for saying he doesn't believe in the Holocaust. Surely, he should be allowed to stand up, and make his views known - which most of the rest of us will laugh at. Where do you draw the line? Criticism of the Government? Should that be illegal?
