A bit wordy for a really simple concept if you ask me.
There is a different between in the law between ‘free speech’ and ‘hate speech’ and it has to do to with what, where and how … as well as what was said. An honest, law abiding court will then put it all into context.
Free speech, protects you when you direct your words at the person, or object you are speaking about, unless there is a threat of harm included.
Hate speech is when someone attempts to do harm to a person, or their livelihood, or family, etc., (slander or to inciteg violence) that is preditory in nature.
In other words, we all free speech (or used to) as long as it is respectful and can be proven without a doubt to be true.
