Supreme Court Unanimously Reaffirms: Hate Speech Is Still Free Speech. To Celebrate this ruling I have decided To make a thread where we talk about your opinion on hate speech. And debate if it is fine in your mind or not.

Avoid especially salacious or graphically violent content, as well as material likely to be found offensive, including excessive vulgarity, and tasteless commentary or jokes regarding rape, sexual orientation, race, nationality, religion, etc. when contributing to forums, comments, guest books, groups, and user reviews, and when creating your profile.

There you go.


Everyone has an Opinion so I don't see the big deal people saying what they think... As long as your not stopping others from having their opinions as well.. its all good.. Old saying sticks and stones may brake my bones, but words will never hurt me.

Maybe it's about the Slants decision, which is really more about trademark registration? And which we already have a thread about.

Anyway, I don't know what the opening post is supposed to say, but what it says now is fine -- there's nothing wrong with a discussion about whether or not hate speech is/should be/shouldn't be "free speech." (Though I think we might already have one of those. I need to go looking.)

I would be interested in seeing what the source of the "Supreme Court Unanimously Reaffrms..." statement is.

Thank you. We do already have a thread about that ruling, and we have another slightly older thread related to hate speech as free speech, so I'm closing this one.

Since that seems to be a very recent article it specifically has likely not been mentioned in the existing threads, and may voice some concepts you'd like to introduce in addition to whatever has already been posted in the existing threads.

Here are the links to those threads:
