I don't remember mentioning "hate speech"(which is not legally defined). It is certainly protected speech under "free speech". But, I know that no speech is absolute. Therefore, both have some restrictions.The United States Supreme Court has ruled.......UNANIMOUSLY......that 'hate speech' is protected speech by the First Amendment......that there is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment....See Here........And especially Here
Google is your friend if you feel you need more elaborate affirmations about https://tinyurl.com/ycez45k6'Hate Speech in the United States'
You will find you are free to yell fire in a jam packed theater, especially when you smell & see smoke......slander someone verbally or in print......you are free to do so as often as you wish, just as long as you realize that sometimes...though rarely...but sometimes there may be repercussions.......but only AFTER the fact your Free Speech has been exercised....like with 'fighting words' directed to a specific individual....speech that incites imminent lawless action by that specific individual the fighting words were directed to.....See Here........
The Supreme Court has time & time again ruled in favor of Expressing the “Thoughts That We Hate”
If you yell "fire" in a crowded theater(ONLY to express your right of free speech), and someone is trampled to death, you will be arrested and charged with negligent manslaughter. If you tell the mayor at a press conference, that if he doesn't stop sleeping with your wife, you are going to kill him, you will be sued for slander. If you put this in print, you will be sued for libel. If you tell people to go out and kill Black Americans, because they're all murderers, and someone does it, you WILL be arrested without the protection under free speech. Finally, I wouldn't threaten the President(which is a felony), and claim that it is your free speech right. Just some friendly advice.
Are you saying that your interpretation of free speech is unconditional?? That you can say anything you want, to anyone you want, at anytime you want, as long as you don't get caught? I agree with this. You can even rob a bank and call it your freedom of expression, AS LONG AS YOU DON'T GET CAUGHT!
