Leslie Jones addresses Twitter trolls: “Hate speech and freedom of speech (are) two different things”
There’re two things you’re not allowed to do with free speech, libel and incitement to immediate violence. That famed shouting “Fire!” in a crowded theatre is an example of the second, as is “Let’s go lynch that nigger!”. Tim Worstall is a fuckwit whitebread is somewhere between true and mere vulgar abuse, neither of which are libel. In my opinion Tim Worstall evades tax is a not libel as it is an expression of an opinion, “Tim Worstall evades tax” is an accusation of criminal behaviour and thus libel….unless it’s true of course.
Everything else really is free speech whether it engenders hatred, shows hatred, is hateful or is just full of hate.
So, sorry, no, unless the hate is an incitement to immediate violence (and it must be immediate) then hate speech and freedom of speech are the same thing.
