I detest how various persons consider criticism opposing their “sovereign” opinion to be hate speech; or how an expression against a character or topic dear to them turns to be hate speech. I find this ignorance highly infuriating. Some of my friends hold back from biting others when such talk touches on political issues or local soccer (football).
Anyway, I wouldn’t blame you. It’s not your fault. Be informed that we are free to criticise whoever we do not like, with the harshest words possible, as long as we don’t incite against any groups of people.
On the social media, I see a lot of misplaced judgment of political speech being condemned as hate speech, or, any “unpleasant” opinion being branded the same. Do we really know what hate speech means? If you don’t, you have a chance to. Do NOT leave this page before you do.
