Can you stand for freedom of speech but not hate speech?
If you stand for freedom of speech, you will have to stand for speech that you find morally reprehensible. The freedom of some people’s speech does not end because it is hateful. This does not mean that you have to agree with hateful views, nor does it mean that you have to let hateful speech go unchallenged. If you encounter speech that you think is hateful, explain why. Counter it with rational arguments.
