    Not really. It was more a hate of the capitalist pigs or hate of the Jews. It's always hate. Like hate of undocumented immigrants.

    OK, Can I be in charge?
    Trump, the man the media wanted to bring down, was largely their creation. The real Trump is doing fine!

    Absolutely agree. All hateful speech should be abolished immediately. Not just from social media, but from all aspects of our lives. Why should we have to tolerate hate, from anyone, anywhere?

    Fortunately, nowdays it would not be impossible to implement a law that abolishes hate speech. Almost every American has a cell phone with them at all times. Why not force manufacturers to add a device to every cell phone that records the owner's speech and sends it to the government for evaluation?

    Maybe you think it would be too much work to analyze and evaluate every American's every word. But you are forgetting that computers are more powerful now than ever. Software could do some of the preliminary work of screening for hate speech.

    For example, if the phrase "I think Trump is doing a good job" is detected, that would set a flag, indicating that the speaker should be monitored and all his/her speech would be analyzed carefully by human experts.

    I am so excited by the idea of screening everyone's speech for hateful remarks! I'm sure you all agree.

    There are days when I hate myself. Will I be allowed to say that?

    when do laws banning freedoms in order to stop the possibility of fascism, become the thing it hates?

    The BIG question? Who decides what hateful bile is?
    That is the sticky part of trying to control speech.

    That's easy. The far left decides.

    Yes, really....that's the entire premise of socialism and communism, which have brought about the most murderous regimes to ever exist.

    If the Internet is to exist in a useful open format, there will always be the means to get around such regulation.

    For this to work, we'll need a feasible way to enforce these rules in the face of VPNs and open development.

    As other have mentioned, the international nature of this complicates it further. Who shall have this authority over the Internet? How do we expect all nations to accept your standard?
