Next time you're defending hate for free speech: Remember that those hateful people are the first, once in power, to get rid of free speech to avoid having anything said against them. There's a difference between what free speech was meant to be, and spreading hate and misinformation. Free speech was not protected so that we can ruin ourselves, but rather so that we can remain free. Spreading hate and calling for witch-hunts towards minorities is the opposite of freedom for those people.

@sindastra who decides what is "hate speech" ? Unelected judges, or an elected hard right hindutva govt ? You see the problem here?

@ilr Yes. But I think once you start being hostile and calling for violence towards any group of people, that's hateful. Wouldn't you agree?


@sindastra thats incitement to violence and already pubishable under most criminal laws including in the us
