What if for example being pro life was considered hate speech because it was deemed, "too offensive to women". If you think it's slippery slope, it's not. This kid got in trouble for saying something pro life. I sympathize with him. The left starts out by saying that hate speech should be illegal, and then says any speech that they disagree with is hate speech. It happened with "Robert". If being pro life is hate speech, then what would be free speech?
"Ok but hate speech is still illegal in the US"
No it isn't. The US doesn't have hate speech laws.
I am not the kind of guy who is egotistical enough to fall for a trap like your rap battle where you promise you have never rapped before or a debate where you promise when I have no way out to outline something key to me winning.
Ok but hate speech is still illegal in the US and in my opinion the US constitution is mostly just an ill-defined list of largely vacuous privileges. We can still do this in a non-US context though if you want, I'll just clarify that in the first round so I don't have to remake the whole debate. I don't see any way to edit it.
Make the resolution specific to a non-US nation where there is no first amendment and I'll take this.
