MessageWell it seems you are showing hatred towards people who speak what you take as hate speech, so then you shouldnt have freedom of speech then :P

But seriously, hate speech is to vague and the definition from person to person is affected political views. Freedom of speech is used to protect the unpopular speech, we have never needed freedom of speech to protect popular speech

MessageHatred is hatred, and everyone should know when they are saying it. Hate speech is racism, sexism, etc.
