Convince me: Hate speech is real

I believe that people can say hateful things but I do not believe in the existence of “Hate speech.”

If hate speech exists then it can be criminalised and people can be fined and sent to jail for their words. Apart from speech that incites or threatens harm to a person ( which is already against the law) is there such a thing as Hate Speech?

Can you make a case that there is such a thing as ” Hate Speech”?


Can you provide a definition of what ” Hate Speech” is?


Can you make a case for why “Hate Speech”? should be criminalised?

Exercise your brain.?Dame Susan Devoy is counting on you.
