Free Speech and Hate Speech
Yonatan Zunger

The problem with criminalizing Hate Speech is who defines Hate Speech. Today the government is a Republican President, a Republican Senate, and a Republican House (using the word Republican somewhat loosely here admittedly). While I don’t want Barack Obama defining Hate Speech, I think you really don’t want Donald Trump defining it either. And all the unadulterated B$ about the weak. Remember, Stalin sent a LOT of people to Siberia for what he defined as Hate Speech. Between the right and the left, the left has an awful lot to explain. Today, who is beating up whom during the peaceful demonstrations? They sure look like what you would define as ‘weak’.
