hate speech is not free speech


the right to free speech has become a contested and contentious issue in the arena of anti-hate activism. the pro free speech argument rests on the fact that people have a right to express their views and that censorship denies people this basic right. the counter argument runs on the lines that there needs to be exceptions to free speech for the safety and good of society.both myself and resisting hate strongly believe that hate speech is not free speech. free speech is not the holy grail of civil liberty. no human being exists in a vacumn where they can speak as they please with no regard for the consequences of what they are saying. too often we hear of the right to freedom of speech with rarely a mention of the responsibilities. yet we do have a responsibility in our speech. we have a
