HATE SPEECH

ANTI-RELIGIOUS PROPAGANDA
These days people sling the term “brainwashing” around like a Frisbee at a park or more aptly, like the fists, rocks, bricks and bullets which fly when some attempt at a rational discussion devolves into selfishness, hatred and bigotry.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
May you come to see the people you write about as actual flesh-and-blood beings, with goals, feelings, failings and emotions rather than as convenient ciphers to scorn.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
No finite definitions for the terms “hate speech” and “disinformation” currently exist under international law. Social platforms must therefore dictate their own rules for the censorship of such speech and disinformation. Facebook alone is currently removing about 3 million instances of hate speech per month—or 4,000 instances per hour.

Do people have prejudices? Unfortunately, absolutely. Do we have the right to broadcast our personal prejudices to others, and in a hateful way? I think not.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
It is not “normal” for people to hate each other because they look different, come from a different place or have different ideas about the ultimate nature of God and the universe.
TOLERANCE
I agree that hate speech has no place in civil discourse, but when people are afraid to communicate at all about entire subjects because they’re afraid of being labeled as something they aren’t, that climate of fear has its own far-reaching consequences on civil discourse that also tear at the fabric of what it means to live in an open, free society.
TOLERANCE
“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” has fallen on hard times in American campuses of late, abandoned amid partisan firefights and outright violence sparked by self-righteous outrage at “offensive” points of view.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
In an experiment designed to combat hate, Reddit shut down some of their more hateful “subreddits,” or forums dedicated to certain topics. They had no idea what would happen.

Leah found something that she could do really well (hate) AND make a lot of money at the same time.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
Scientologists are, almost without exception, really nice people. That’s something you could say of most people and groups but I’m always reminded that being an above average communicator and expressing a heightened regard for other people is something most Scientologists have in common. It’s an exceptionally articulate group of people who know and speak their own minds.
