What is hate speech, what is not? What is terrorism, what is not?

Allowed and not allowed:

  • Groups that call for the removal of a people based on race, religion or ethnicity or political ideology.
    • Ex. – Hamas, KKK, White Supremacist, ect.
  • Hate speech is not stating the truth.
    • Ex – The majority of illegal immigrants are from Latin America (this is fine). No Mexican should rounded up and shipped from the US (this is not).
    • Ex – African American males commit over 50% of all murders, this is why they are overrepresented in prison (this is a statement of fact, this is OK).
    • Ex – Blacks are lazy and useless, they commit the majority of crime, are nothing but worthless, we should send them back to Africa (this is racist, it will not be allowed).
    • Ex – I don’t agree with Zionism, I think it is founded to take land from a people already there (this is an opinion, this is allowed).
    • Ex – Jews killed Jesus, we should finish the job Hitler started and kill them all (this is hate speech, will not be allowed.)
