Yes, In a Supreme Court case on the issue, Matal v. Tam (2017), the justices unanimously reaffirmed that there is effectively no "hate speech" exception to the free speech rights protected by the First Amendment and that the U.S. government may not discriminate against speech on the basis of the speaker's viewpoint.
Hate speech is defined as public speech that expresses hate or encourages violence towards a person or group based on something such as race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. so, i believe that if it threatens the safety of another with violence, then a person should be allowed to be protected and have authority to make it legal to stop
Freedom of speech is a novel right we often take for granted. I have absolutely no use for racism, bigotry, homophobia, xenophobia, or any prejudice of any kind but, our constitution allows us to speak out in favor of such things. Very strange how it works. The day we suppress the freedom to speak out for or against our beliefs is the day our country stops being free. I don’t condone hate speech but, as long as we are free people have the right to say what they will.
Yes, and begrudgingly because once a power is given to the government, the government has a way of abusing that power. However, once someone uses hate speech a warrant for observation should be issued to determine if that person poses a threat to others.
Limit the confines of there ability to speak but do not ban them or fine them unless violence or complete disregard of historical facts and truth are shown. Put warnings on there speech saying that it could be extreme and has proven to be.
Yes, but I'm also all for the public backlash heaped upon people who choose to speak hatefully. Allow the consequences to be 'canceling' -- a termination of opportunities determined by the court of public opinion in response to the person's behavior and speech.
If the hate speech is discrimination of any kind than no but if it is about things like criticizing the government then yes. If it is about criticizing the government, it should not include things that give equal rights to women, trans rights, rights to other races, rights of gay marriage, gay adoption, abortion, etc.
