yes some speech should be band. Anything that goes against the constitution and promotes violence should be band.

Free speech does not allow yelling "Fire" in a theater when there is no fire, so It's not an absolute right. As such, hate speech should be banned. No one benefits from hate speech, no matter rights!!

No one is free to threaten others. Hate speech is a threat.

No one should be able to promote hate! It’s about being a decent human being.

The people banning "hate" speech today will be banning what you want to talk about tomorrow.

Because there is a rampant abundance of hate happening in this country recently. No need to encourage it.

To easy to label opposing views "Hate speech".

A very arrogant person would think they have the right to decide what kind of speech is appropriate or acceptable. In some countries people go to prison for disagreeing with the status quo. Want that?

What constitutes hate speech, and who decides? Just because I have a different point of view, doesn’t mean I’m being hateful.

If we could depend on the fairness of the social media provider, but we can’t. One side will always have more power depending on the provider‘s bias. If we can’t do it right, then zero censorship.

I think this is an issue for social media platforms to decide what they want to allow. If users are opposed to the platforms speech policies, they will naturally gravitate away from the platform.

Nope, not only do we have freedom of speech. But I also find some of the "hate" speech stuff really funny.

Face book is a private company. so they have the right to edit what is in their site. But I would rather put the speech out for people to see. then they can make up their own mind.

Define hate speech today . . . Anything, and I mean anything that may or can offend someone. Heck, even supporting Trump is considered "hate speech" by Liberals. Where does it end?

Not only do I NOT celebrate it I deplore it! So much dark and demonic activity. it is a reason for mayhem and mischief, ransacking school buses, throwing eggs, smashed up pumpkins in the road, teaching children to beg for candy, evil people putting razor blades in apples and chocolate or poison!
