Who is a bigot, racists, fascist? I suspect for you (and for most people) it’s anyone whose speech you don’t like or agree with. There’s a far distance between “hate” speech (I think harassment is easier to define as it’s usually directed at a singular person) and disagreeable speech. The problem is that for extremists on both sides of the aisle, but particularly of late since Trump’s election, on the left (Antifa, anyone?), hate speech is any speech (that includes actual speech, wearing of “MAGA” hats, bumper stickers on cars, holding up pro trump signs, wearing a “mexican style poncho” on Cinqo de Mayo that the left is offended by (which is pretty much everything not a thought of their own).
