Hate V.S. Hate Speech.

Conservatives must take a severe and uncompromising stance against racist ideology and dogma of all kinds. But something that I believe Conservatives should avoid is adopting the Left wing term “hate speech”. Instead, we should simply speak of hate itself. Our target should not be the act of speech (which is  of course protected by the Constitution)  but the general mentality.  We may not owe a platform to such ideas, but they have a right to whatever platform they can scrounge to find, and we have the right to shoot down everyone of those ideas. Censorship gives an evil idea an air of mystery, a mystique; and therefore a certain appeal. But when it is allowed to air itself freely it is exposed for the insubstantial, tiresome tripe that it is.
