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.

I get why UK media have taken to calling it something suspicious-sounding like "backstop" rather than "adhering to the Good Friday Agreement", but why do the #Ireland media and commentariat fail to reclaim the more direct language?
Obfuscating the origin of the issue within #Brexit only serves hardline Tories, and erases Northern Ireland's peace process.

D’you know what’s ridiculous! Politicians being shocked and annoyed when scientists produce science suggesting that bees (insects) are being killed by insecticides because insecticides can’t tell the difference between helpful and unhelpful insects!! For goodness’ sake!!!
