    What is wrong with so called hate speech.

    On the news, a student in Canada was suspended from school for refusing to wear some sort of multi colored poppy for Canada's form of veterans day. She posted a paper saying it was not right for her to have to wear the LGTB or what ever poppy. She was more than willing to wear the standard poppy.

    She was called to the office and told she was spreading "hate speech". She was suspended until next Tue. So there you are, the left can declare ANYTHING they dont like hate speech!!!!! It is now their tool to suppress free speech.

    BTW the left still assures us they are open minded. Yeah open minded up to the point till you say something they dont agree with, and now it becomes hate speech. It is total BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. We have to use common sense in defining "hate speech."

    2. In my opinion, it is NOT hate speech to refuse to wear a poppy. If she wants to be the only student who stands out for not wearing the poppy, then she is, indeed, making a statement, but that is not "hate."

    3. For example, if I am the only person in an audience who does NOT stand up when a female or non-Caucasian or non-Christian or non-straight celebrity is introduced, that is not "hate" speech.

    a. But if I yelled something derogatory about that celebrity's gender, etc., then it would be "hate" speech.

    *****


    People are awfully sensitive.

    The other day, I heard a young non-Caucasian man (who was holding a baby in his arms) become angry with an older Caucasian man. The latter -- to the best of my knowledge -- was simply smoking a cigarette on the street. But this young man for some reason thought that the older man had looked at him in a disrespectful manner. The young man said to the older man: "Why do you have a frown on your face? Oh, I understand. You old people are so full of medications that it affects your facial expression." Then he continued on his way.

    As our country continues its demographic shift, more and more words and gestures will be defined as "hate" speech.

    No it is not. That is the schools lying story. The story created a huge stink and the school is hoping to quell the story by lying. Yet the girl was not in school. Explain that. Hopefully the parents of the girl will sue.

    Re: What is wrong with so called hate speech.

    First there was political correctness, and finally people just laughed at it knowing that it was a left wing attempt to shut down free speech.

    Now the left has invented hate speech to try to do the same thing. Time to laugh that off the face of the earth too!!!!

    Using a Leftist Blog put out by a moms basement dweller as a source is not a winning technique.
