The First Amendment is most certainly to protect "hate" speech or any other unpopular speech. That's the whole point. Popular speech doesn't need a First Amendment.

Dumbass.

Coulter has been in the news recently because a talk she was scheduled to give at University of California, Berkeley was canceled do to safety concerns.

Hmmmm - really? Do to safety concerns...

Straw man argument, what he considers hate speech is the truth, and he needs to point out what is she saying that is hate speech.

Well if anyone would know something about “hate speech”, it certainly would be a demodummie.

It is appalling, the total ignorance by someone who once ran for President.

C19Fan had it right. All you have to do to find a totalitarian is to scratch the surface of a liberal.

Well he’s a Marxist not a liberal. Liberals are the useful idiots of the Marxists.

Right you are.

Moreover, the most rigorous test applied to squelching speech is applied to preventing speech, especially political speech. Even if one assumes that years ago Ann Coulter uttered some speech that was legitimately liable to being censored, that makes no justification for pre-censorship today or tomorrow at Berkeley.

Mr. Dean. You do understand our Founding Fathers talked ill of the British. They actually used hate speech.

The Democrat bench: Dean, Warren, DiBlasio, Cuomos, Clintons, Pelosi, Schumer, Leahy, Feinstein, et. al. The greatest pack of political losers in the history of the Republic. Even worse than Ryan, Corker, Alexander, McCain, Flake, Cornyn, Graham, et. al.

Howard Dean? Isn’t he the “screamer” who once ran for
President? - Libs want to outlaw ANY speech that isn’t
pro-abortion, or any speech with which they don’t agree.
:o(

Yes, and ironically Dean is also the one who said “I hate Republicans and everything they stand for”.
