Free Speech is an idea that sounds reasonable. That is why it is the First Amendment to the American Constitution. It does however have limits. Keith Windschuttle explains - see Freedom of Speech: Does it have its limits? It is a way of finding truth, not a mechanism for defending lies or harassment. See the Harm Principle to know more.
Jews are very keen on labelling anything they don't like as hate but they keep
very quiet about Racists like the Very Reverend Rabbi
Ovadia Yosef, who was the
Chief Rabbi of Israel & full of hate. How do we know? See e.g.:-
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef says Gentiles exist only to serve Jews
Zionist Rabbi Ovadia Yosef wishes death to all Palestinians - YouTube
Rabbi calls for annihilation of Arabs
Was the old fool an exception? Given that Over Half A Million Attend Funeral Of Revered Racist Rabbi the answer has to be NO! He founded Shas, the seventh largest political party in Israel, where Racism isn't crime; it is main stream policy.
Hate Speech ex Wiki
Hate speech is, outside the law, speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender, ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation.
In law, hate speech is any speech, gesture or conduct, writing, or display which is forbidden because it may incite violence or prejudicial action against or by a protected individual or group, or because it disparages or intimidates a protected individual or group. The law may identify a protected individual or a protected group by certain characteristics. In some countries, a victim of hate speech may seek redress under civil law, criminal law, or both. A website that uses hate speech is called a hate site. Most of these sites contain Internet forums and news briefs that emphasize a particular viewpoint. There has been debate over how freedom of speech applies to the Internet.
Critics have argued that the term "hate speech" is a contemporary example of Newspeak, used to silence critics of social policies that have been poorly implemented in a rush to appear politically correct.
The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) states that "any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law". The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) prohibits all incitement of racism. On 3 May 2011, Michael O'Flaherty with the United Nations Human Rights Committee published General Comment No. 34 on the ICCPR, which among other comments expresses concern that many forms of "hate speech" do not meet the level of seriousness set out in Article 20. Concerning the debate over how freedom of speech applies to the Internet, conferences concerning such sites have been sponsored by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
