There's no such thing as "hate speech."

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

MATAL, INTERIM DIRECTOR, UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE v. TAM CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FEDERAL CIRCUIT No. 15–1293.

Argued January 18, 2017—Decided June 19, 2017

The Government has an interest in preventing speech expressing ideas that offend. And, as we have explained, that idea strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”

-Justice Samuel Alito

The First Amendment guards against laws “targeted at specific subject matter,” a form of speech suppression known as content based discrimination. ... This category includes a sub-type of laws that go further, aimed at the suppression of “particular views ... on a subject.” ... A law found to discriminate based on viewpoint is an “egregious form of content discrimination,” which is “presumptively unconstitutional.”

-Justice Anthony Kennedy

On a governmental level. Absolutely no hate speech exists. On a privatized level its pretty clear that most companies have decided it does exist. They are retarded. But the fact is that your sample is irrelevant to privatized actions.

no it isn't you retard, free speech isn't just law it's an american principal. The founding fathers were quite clear about this the government doesn't give people rights it exists to protect the rights all free white men of good character naturally have. Even if google has a right to do this what they are doing is wrong and we need to oppose them

Nope. That’s literally not how anything works.

Law and truth are on our side. Antifa doesn't really care about that though. To them, violence is truth.
