Hate speech is the most protected speech. We're at liberty to spew hate-speech at anyone or anything.

Except the Muslims? ...because they are threatening to murder us because we object to their murdering us?
You are kidding me! We are free to object to whatever we wish and to hate whomever we wish. Because some primitives are holding a knife to our throats we should just throw it in and say, "Aw, shucks, guys, we never really meant free-free? -- Why I love 'hate speech'

Your Say

The term "hate speech" sounds so 3rd grade, and I'm not surprised.

Orwell made excellent use of the English language in 1984. Newspeak.
Within the book, the purpose of the Two Minutes Hate is said to satisfy the citizens' subdued feelings of angst and hatred from leading such a wretched, controlled existence. By re-directing these subconscious feelings away from the ... government and toward external enemies (which probably do not even exist), the Party minimizes subversive thought and behavior.

I hate hate speech haters. All haters should be thrown in chains.

Hate a minute here, Bill. I hate to inform you that we should not hate the hate speech haters; rather we should hate the hate speech haters' hate. My uncle Letsgo reminded me that every time I hold up my haters one of the haters is pointing back at me.

The following trivia is brought to you by the Bantam Chicken Ranchers of America:

In the 1917 Jazz song "Darktown Strutters' Ball" the word "strutters" is an equivalent term for "dancers". After studying the original lyrics to that song, it seems clear to me that that word doesn't refer to a particular dance called the "Strut" that was done at that ball. Instead, the dancers competed for a prize (or prizes) by "dancing out both of their shoes" doing "the two step", "the classic buck and wing", the wooden clog", "Walkin The Dog", and probably other African American originated social dances. (The 1936 version that Ella Fitzgerald sung included the lyrics "Shim sham wins them all" meaning dancing the "Shim Sham" (the Shimmy) would win the dance competition for that couple.)
