No. Hate speech doesn't exist. Crime based on discrimination and violence based on discrimination does exist. If i call you a bitch, specifically because someone I don't like is female - that's not a hate crime. Now if I go out SPECIFICALLY looking for women to attack and rob, then it's a hate crime. Same with LGBT and same with politicians. If I say that politician is a piece of shit and that dude is a "flaming asshole" then that's not a crime. Now.. threats and violence? Yes, That's a crime. Misgendering. NOT violence.
I agree with that but what I’m saying is that speech that encourages violence is not ok and shouldn’t be tolerated.
Do you live under a rock?
I'm Latino myself and it's funny how Leftist Americans act like we're all saints. So it's ok to spread lies about whites and males but not about Mexicans? I bet you dont know that Mexicans immigration laws and Mexican border patrol treat Panamanians and Hondurans worse than ANY American border officer.
Also, where are you on AOC and Federica Wilson saying we need to lock people for mocking politicians online?
I wonder, do you find it funny how right wing americans act like you're all criminals too?Absolutely no one thinks or claims you are all saints, leftists are just not racist and don't think that your races determines how criminal you are. That's it.So the mexican government sucks too? Wow cool, totally a reason to hate all mexicans.I don't know what those two said exactly and what happened to make them say that, but politicians are people too and deserve to be treated as such and while I don't think mocking someone is enough to go to jail, it sure should not happen.
So Kathy Griffin holding a severed head is hate speech? Or Cory Booker saying he wants to punch the president... hate speech?
Why would it be? People hate Trump because of his decisions, not of something he didn't ask for like race or country of origin.
So another words it’s only hate speech if a liberal says it is. This why you liberals will never take back the White House.

You can get upset all you want. What I don't like is the idea of putting people in jail and taking down websites?
When did that happen?
It's happening everywhere. Where have you been for the past year? AOC and Federica Wilson are both trying to pass laws making it illegal to mock and insult politicians online.
Not sure if that’s what you’re referring to, but if you had that in mind you should know there’s more to that story.
Hahaha You're quoting snopes?
They literally gave evidence proving it wrong... What are you quoting?
I don't have to quote anything, her comments are all over the internet. Snopes only says it's false because she made the comments about a facebook group. The facebook did NOT threaten or intimidate AOC. It mocked and made fun of her. Learn to have some reading comprehension.
I looked up “Federica Wilson free speech” and that snopes article was the first thing that popped up. The thing from snopes was just talking about her and not AOC. I think you’re the one that needs to learn reading comprehension because I don’t think you even read the article I linked. I can’t really find anything specific about AOC calling for laws against free speech so maybe you should link an article or something.
