First you had hate crimes. This all started with the murder of a gay man because he was gay. Generally speaking murder is already a hate crime, so no real reason to pile on making the murder of a gay or minority person a special case.
Some may find that hateful but the fact is this whole hate thing then becomes a slippery slope as we are now contending with hate speech. You have people getting arrested for using the “N” word and what word is next? Cracker? Where does all of this end?
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
