I don’t know if we can make modifications to this. But Yeah, I do think many people would be in favor bringing free speech, or as you consider it- “hate speech” back. If it was taken away.

No I don’t consider all speech to be Hate Speech.  Don’t twist my words around.

And you’re wrong. Nobody is going to march in the streets to bring back the Westboro Baptist Church or the American Nazi Party’s
right to march and carry placards etc…or any other hate or vitriolic speech.

LOLwut?

Those groups didn’t lose their right to demonstrate.

Nobody has defined hate speech. How can anyone decide what to do about it if we can’t decide what it is?

I challenge everyone on this forum to give a definition of hate speech—peferably in 25 words or less. Only if we can agree on one of them can we begin to debate what should be done about it.

This one should do among many other sites I looked up. They all pretty much say the same i.e. any speech that evokes or incites hatred toward a particular group, race, creed or sexual preference etc. hey, I’m just under 25 words if you count etc.

Yeah Exactly VA, it’s really not much of a challenge.  It’s a no brainer.
There are Federal and State statutes determining what hate crimes are.
There really is very little difficulty in determining what hate speech is.
