Do I have this correct; when Liberals speak, it's considered free speech. When Conservatives speak, it's called hate speech...?

Update:

@?

This isn't a ridiculous subject. It's serious! The left has been enforcing speech codes all across America. Here's the solution. Quit silencing the Masses because you don't agree with them. 

Update 2:

@Mark

And who decides what the purpose of my speech is? You, a nameless Politician, or some appointed Civil Servant. The response to pernicious speech is good speech, not silencing speech. 

Update 3:

@Yavan

The best definition of truth I ever read is "truth is that which corresponds closest to reality." I've read the Classics; Plato, St. Augustine, Homer, St. Ignatius. If you want to discuss truth, I'm more than willing to have that conservation.  

Update 4:

@jerome

No, I don't. It's a subjective matter that can be used to silence others.

Update 5:

@Heidi

See that Heidi, you exercised your free speech. Doesn't that feel great. Everyone should be able to call everyone else stupid without being silenced.

    Someone famous may well have said:

    “To anger a conservative, lie to him. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth.”

    No, you do not have this correct.  It is only considered hate speech when its purpose is to inflict hate toward a group.  Republicans and Democrats can have both, although there is more hate speech from the right than the left.

    update - All you have to dp is look up the definition.

    "hate speech

    noun

    abusive or threatening speech or writing that expresses prejudice against a particular group, especially on the basis of race, religion, or sexual orientation."

    It's just that conservatives have no interest in what the truth is. It makes the whole of conservative discourse a fraud.

    Whether intended or not... conservative talking heads produce the fraud, but those who believe it then simply repeat a fraud.

    And who are you to continue this ridiculous dichotomy? Someone who would rather pick a fight than solve a problem?

    Actually when liberals commit acts of violence they call it speech, and when conservatives speak liberals call it acts of violence.
