The Hysteria surrounding “Hate Speech”.
The hysteria surrounding “hate” speech has been gaining momentum for awhile. I posted the following in November 2015. “Hate speech — mean speech and not so nice speech is speech protected by the First Amendment. Authoritarian progressives seek to eradicate racism by suppressing free thought and expression. Distasteful as it is, in the U.S. you have the right to be bigoted and express bigoted beliefs…i.e. you don’t have a right to be safe from offense. Unless, of course, “diversity” is only embraced if the ideas expressed are safe & comfortable.” http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/nov/10/university-of-missouri-police-ask-students-to-repo/
