    I have always found this topic of interest.

    Do you feel that Hate Speech should be allowed by such racist groups like the KKK in the United States? Or do you feel the government should step in and make laws?

    One has to remember there is a difference between saying you hate or dislike one group and advocating genocide against that group.

    Some of the most ruthless leaders in history started the wiping out of groups in their country with words (I.E Hitler).

    My personal opinion:

    Hate Speech not only goes against the Constitution but skirts the law. It only advocates violence by either a Lone Wolf (Someone who is part of a group but acts alone) or a group of people.

    The Constitution states that the Gov't restricts Freedom of Speech in two cases:

    1.) Restriction of Speech based on it's content, I.E: Yelling fire in a large crowd of people.

    2.) Adverse effect on the community.

    And of course certain types of speech:

    Obsecnities, Misrepresentation, Defamation, Fighting Words, advocating lawless behavior, or riots.

    Is not asking for people to go out and commit genocide fall under this? To go out and murder someone because of their gender, race, or religion falls under this does it not?

    Opinions? Comments?

    'Hate speech' just means 'white people speaking the truth about race and ethnicity.'

    Since you want the government to punish anyone who speaks about race in ways you don't like, it's pretty clear that you're not interested in a debate on the merits. When you can't think of ways to refute others' arguments, you simply say, "Well, that's hate speech. Put that man in jail."

    I think it should be allowed. Not only is it validated by the first amendment there is no rule that says a listener must agree. Banning "hate speech" doesn't kill hate... it's only driven underground. Besides, what amounts to "hate" is largely in the eye of the beholder anyway.



    point in case. In this town lately some group of NAZIS have petitioned to march on a rather popular day for college football. They were turned down for a permit but they insist that they will be here anyway. Well, so what. The last time they came they were not hailed as anything but deplorable bastards.

    and so it goes.

    It should be allowed by law, but mocked and shamed by society.

    I'll demonstrate:

    Can you guys believe that racist dickhead who said hate speech was just "white people speaking the truth"?
