On Hate Speech and Hate Crime
These are terms I hear often. Sadly they seem to be more associated with silencing others than with concern for the recipients of said animosity.
I conclude this for America is a free nation and ones views and freedom of speech are deemed a God given right. Therefore these terms are false and should be treated as such.
The term hate speech has no place a free society. You cannot allow one persons speech and ban anther’s because it contains hate. The moment you do all someone need do is call your speech hateful and you too can be silenced.
The same can be said for the term hate crime. A crime is a crime whatever the reason. Hare crime proceeds throughout crime. It demonizes the base intents of mans mind before the actions. A crime is a crime and should always be treated as such.
