I do not know anyone who thinks calling people Illegals is hate speech.
Then you need to pay attention. A federal judge in Arizona declared it "hate speech" (or some such) a few years ago and prohibited attorneys from using the term "illegal alien" in cases in her court.

There is no difference. "Hate speech" is a bogus concept, and what you classify as "hate speech" is the only kind of speech that needs protection. Making it clearly legal to say things that someone else calls "hate speech" is the only purpose of the free speech clause of the First Amendment.

By your measure then, any student anywhere who has ever expressed support for BLM should similarly be expelled. There are, after all, those who find such expression offensive.
Celebrating a murdered victim is the new measure.

This is my last post re: Westboro Baptist Church case; it'd be better to get back to the topic.
I repeat what I stated previously. And the Westboro Baptist Church was is on topic in my opinion as it goes to whether the students in this case did anything that government (i.e. the school) can punish them over, which has become a topic of debate in this thread.

Only thing missing from that picture is the confederate flag. They are the poorest state in America by the way, nobody wants to invest in such a racist state, with an ugly legacy of racial hatred and killing of Blacks. And pictures like this will only hurt them even more.

Mississippi revels in it though. They like their reputation.

You just canít understand how retrograde they are unless you spend time there. Itís astounding.

My grandparents are my heroes for getting our family the hell up outta Mississippi. I thank my lucky stars all the time about that.
