Free Speech and the Paradox of Tolerance
Julia Serano

You are giving opinions about what is “hate speech” and you are obviously quoting Spencer out of context to make a point. If you look at an art object, you can only look at it subjectively. All epiphenomena can be construed as art. Rhetoric is an art form. Your subjective point of view about “xenophobia” and “racism” are opinions that rare likely shared with other feminists, anarchists and leftists. What are you afraid of? That they will get a following. And you fear they will be led by them. You are that faithless in your own social justice ideas, and you have a low opinion of others, speciically white people, white males in particular. Your fear should never translate into violence and intolerance. If you can’t win with ideas, then you are possibly on the wrong side. We have seen many problems with multiculturalism and the failure to integrate different people — it doesn’t just happen. It is ok to be proud of your identity, even if you are white. That is not a claim on superiority, nor does it imply hatred of others. That is your assumption and fear manifest. The Greeks allowed free speech in the first democracy. We should do the same. Social justice for every little grievance will isolate swaths of peoples into safe spaces and create a cultural disconnect, and lay the groundwork for a totalitarian one world system. Maybe that is what your masters want more than anything, and you toe the line unwittingly.
