Hate speech isn't free speech. If your speech is a call for the destruction of basic freedoms and rights for other people (the right to life, the right to free association, the right to bodily autonomy, the right to self-expresson, the right to free speech, etc), then you have invalidated your right to free speech itself.

Can't tolerate intolerance. As soon as you exercise your rights to infringe upon mine I'm entitled to use any means within measure to defend them.

@cocoron We could tolerate them if possibility of them using state to kill half of us wasn't an issue.

@cocoron VERY WELL SAID!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

@cocoron STRONGLY disagree. If "hate speech" (by whose definition?) isn't free speech, then no speech is.

@papa @cocoron No nation that I know of allows for totally free speech. Even the US has a few restrictions on free speech (violent threats, causing a panic, etc).

@trebach @cocoron Those well-established exceptions are not what people are talking about when they talk about restricting "hate speech".
