So you are agreeing with charging people for the thoughts that they hold, when they disagree with you? And you can engage your brain, say something then the goalposts change, and suddenly you are the bad person, criminal and can be charged?And that’s the problem with social media, you say the words and take your chance. Engage brain before hitting send !
I wholeheartedly disagree. Unless you are inciting violence and targeting a group, you should be able to say what you want.
Criticism isn’t hate speech, nor is saying something someone disagrees with.
Who determines hate speech? Offence is subjective. Context is key. It’s about perspective.
Otherwise you can be retrospectively charged for a crime then?
If you posted something before the date of a hypothetical hate speech crime law was put in place would I be charged?
This is a very dangerous precedent to set and a slippery slope to go down. This thought policing and police state is very Gestapo like.
