Free Speech - Hate Speech!


by: Shmuel ben Shlomi


In the United States of America, according to the U.S. Constitution - the foundational Law document that governs the nation - there is no such thing as Hate Speech.


Hate Speech is a relatively modern term coined by a coalition of bodies (be it right, left or middle) that wish to curtail any kind of speech that disagrees with that coalition’s narrative.


However, according to the First Amendment of the United States Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution; Speech, any kind of Speech, with very, very few exceptions (e.g., shouting “Fire” in a crowded area when there is no fire) is fully protected and guaranteed along with Freedom of Religious expression, Freedom to Assemble, Freedom to openly Petition the Government and Freedom of the Press.


Hate Speech is not covered by the founding Law of the Land document because its definition is ill-defined being a product of pure speculation and subjectivity.


Now those who Hate the founding Law of the Land document or any of its statues are Free to peacefully express their Hate for it thanks to that self-same document. They are Free to Hate if they wish to do so, but they are not Free to curtail the Free Speech of others they may disagree with.
