    The question that must be asked with regard to the above, is how is something determined to be hate speech? Currently the united states is obsessed with the concept of micro aggressions, where any perceived slight, no matter how minute, is regarded as a deliberate effort to dehumanize others. The list of what amounts to micro aggressions is nearly limitless, and includes using the last name of a person when addressing them instead of their first name, or even the other way around.

    What exactly is hate speech when operating within the standards of today?

    The first amendment is not there to protect speech you are okay with, if you got you way anything you disagree with you and your lib buds will label hate speech. You are an anti-fascist fascist. Thanks for clarifying.

    Yes of coarse. I want all thoughts and opinions to be a matter of public record.
    That is the American way of doing things.

    No, you haven't. You made a statement that antifa were anti-fascist in post #5 and stated you don't condone violence. You're dancing around it pretty well.

    You're doing it again..... do you really not see?

    You are painting it black and white and any time anyone tries to bring up the "evil" done by the Antifa fascists you get upset and point the conversation to the white supremacist fascists.

    I have always disliked the KKK groups and people I have met however small that number is. But never have I flat out hated a group like I do Antifa and the people who support them

    Like "vile hate speech" against groups that want to keep a statue up? Or a prayer group at Berkley?

    Your comment is the fastest contradiction I may have ever seen

    Including the fascists.
    They are, indeed, victims, when the antifa terrorists try to suppress their right to free speech with violence.
    Correct?

    So what were you trying to say here?:

    We're talking about violent "anti-fascists" in this thread. Are you saying that your comment was a straw man that went terribly wrong?

    Good, well we would all appreciate it then if you would stop saying you are for free speech and that you are against Antifa. You clearly are not

    Nope, I have no respect for any violent activist.
    I have even less respect for the hateful people in this world.
    It really is just that simple.

    How are/were they fascists?

    I need more than the word of the fascistic "anti-fascists" in Antifa to determine whether or not someone is actually a fascist.

    You keep contradicting yourself. You have a "distaste" for them? No, it doesn't work like that. Stop saying you're against violence. That's clearly not true. You also say you are for free speech and then you follow it with BUT I"m all for shutting down hate speech. One contradiction after another and numerous people are calling you out on it.

    Well, if you have no respect for violent activists and hateful people then the "anti-fascists" in Antifa are the bad guys, right?

    I'm just trying to sort out your comments because they appear to contradict each other.
