Negative Their Negatory - There is No "Hate Speech" Exception to the First Amendment


The judiciary has been steadfast in knocking down this fascist talking point that somehow free speech is limited when dealing with "hate speech."  So called hate speech is, of course, any speech that somebody doesn't like.  Too bad, lump it, avert your eyes, people have a right to express views that you might idiotically label "hate speech" even though that makes you angry that you can't muzzle your neighbors you disagree with.

Perhaps before you run your yap online in the future, you'll do a little research into the topic.  That may have led you to a great many Supreme Court rulings that have all made clear that there is no "hate speech" exception to the First Amendment.  For example, Matal v. Tam might be worth a gander:

[The idea that the government may restrict] speech expressing ideas that offend … strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”

As somebody who has taken an oath to support the Constitution, you might want to stop lying to denigrate the rights enshrined in it.  Technique only.

P.S.  The fact that you edited your post but still left in "ethnical standards" along with your false factual claims, might be reason for you to stop internetting.  You're not very good at it.
