I’m confused, the headline says it was branded as hate speech, but then there is this line at the very end.
> “A school spokeswoman told the paper that security officials responded to the dust-up but that no sanctions are being contemplated.”
So did the school actually brand it as hate speech, or was that just these students interpretation of hate speech?
> “You’re not allowed to share hate language at a University,” Slusar shouted at Linder. “Make America Great Again means Make America all for white people, no immigrants, no people of different sexual orientations.
If saying "Make [Insert Country Here] Great again is all that hate speech, I wonder what her opinion would be to make Canada great again? I mean, that’s assigning a lot of unrelated labels on a very simple phrase.
My opinion is thus, you fight for the mans right to wear his hat. You defend her right to tell him to take it off. So long as this stays verbal, everybody has the right to speak their mind. I saw the video, somebody grabbed the mans hat off his head. Now we are fighting against free speech, now we are talking theft and denial of free speech. Critics of the women started lambasting her facebook page with rape threats, death threats, the same going to her parents, threats of violence towards the person. Contrary to the widespread belief of tyrants among college students, professors and administrators, the true test of one’s commitment to free speech does not come when one permits people to be free to express those ideas that he finds acceptable. “The true test of one’s commitment to free speech comes when he permits others to say those things that he finds deeply offensive. In a word, free speech is absolute, or nearly so.” - Walter E Williams.
