My piece on why the very broadness of the First Amendment suggests we should have a hate speech law. And if we did, why the President might be in violation of it.
Unregulated speech that breeds discrimination undermines the First Amendment.

Ever since social media came along and you in the media actually have to hear what the people say, you've done nothing but try to shut us up while preaching the 1st amendment that you appear to believe only applies to you.

People that ban speech usually hang on lamps 50 years later.

And if we wrote a stupid speech law, you'd be in violation of that. Kinda the point.

"I came to see how our First Amendment standard is an outlier" is not an argument *for* censorship, it is an indictment of the rest of the world

Let me guess, โ€œhate speechโ€ should be defined by the left, and none of the dangerous & violent ANTIFA, CAIR, JMMA or leftist groups will be applicable. But any conservative saying they disapprove of anything will be immediately censored. Your fascism is showing.

Here is why there should never be a hate speech law in one easy lesson: Government would term whatever they wanted to suppress as hate speech.
