What is “Hate Speech” anyway? According to the snowflakes in college, it’s any speech that disagrees with you, or makes you feel uncomfortable. What earthy good does it do a person to be protected from ever hearing a discouraging word. Sooner or later, everyone is going to be insulted, offended, hurt, disappointed, not to mention fired, accused and left out. Real life is not always comfortable, and you cannot make it so. Perhaps the old line that defines free speech says it more clearly. “You cannot shout fire in a crowded theater.”
