I genuinely don't understand why people defend hate speech as free speech. If a bigot (Ex: An actual Neo-Nazi/Klansman/Westboro Baptist Church member) is given a platform they'll just spread their propaganda and hate to other people. If they're silenced, there will be fewer hateful people in the world.
Honestly? I agree with you. Unfortunately, people have bastardized “hate speech” to mean “Things that I disagree with”. Just look at what happens whenever Christina Hoff Sommers - a Democrat feminist-has a speaking engagement at a college.
