(Title, Year Published)


Even in countries with weak hate speech laws – countries where people freely spread lies and defamation about minorities – you still cannot legally advocate or justify violence against minority groups, and absolutely nobody believes that you should ever be allowed to.  But, in the US, you can.  The US allows people to advocate violence, murder, terrorism, and genocide – even against minorities – all in the name of “freedom”.  How is genocide “freedom”?  Where in the First Amendment does it say that genocide is acceptable?  How can a supposedly civilized and democratic society possibly justify allowing people to freely incite violence and murder against vulnerable minorities?  As an example, there have been several cases of US preachers saying that LGBT people should receive the death penalty.  In a civilized country with democracy and human rights, anyone who said something like this would receive at least ten years in prison for inciting hatred, violence, murder, and genocide against a protected minority group.  But, in the US, this is allowed in the name of “freedom”.  Well, guess what?  Homophobes inciting the genocide of LGBT people is most definitely not “freedom” for the highly vulnerable LGBT people who already live their lives in constant fear of homophobic violence.  How can the US possibly justify – from any kind of logical standpoint – allowing this sort of thing in the name of “freedom”? (Cohen, 2015)
