Wikipedia: Hate speech
Hate speech is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary 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”. Hate speech is “usually thought to include communications of animosity or disparagement of an individual or a group on account of a group characteristic such as race, colour, national origin, sex, disability, religion, or sexual orientation”. A legal definition of hate speech varies from country to country.
   
There has been much debate over freedom of speech, hate speech and hate speech legislation.

This is what irritates me about ALL ideologues. They view their opinions as free speech, disagree & its hate speech.

Free speech is good as long as they agree, if they disagree.. it’s hate speech & they are allowed to use whatever means to stop it.

The Thatcher Maxim of free speech:  You are allowed to speak freely only at the corner of Totalitarian Avenue & Fascist Boulevard.

i find it funny how people praise free speech,  but only when it’s in their opinion and if you disagree it’s hate speech and you’re wrong

The idea of free speech has morphed into “speech I agree with should be free. If I disagree, it’s hate speech.
