HATE SPEECH is a weasel word.

what does it mean?

Wouldn't the definition of hate speech vary by community?

Who gets to decide?

Is it hate speech to say "homosexuality is unnatural"?

Or "women shouldn't be race car drivers"?

Is "God Bless You" hate speech?

7. There are no hate speech laws in the U.S. due to our First Amendment

But there are some other countries that don’t have a First Amendment which have Hate Speech defined by law. For example: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Denmark, the Council of Europe, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Jordan, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, and United Kingdom.

9. republican forms of government

Since every nation on that list is a republic except for the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the citizens are FREE to vote out of office the legislators who passed hate speech laws and vote in representatives who will repeal them.

10. As if anyone in power ever willingly gives up power and control over people

If your speech is monitored and controlled, you are already a slave. In the case of a few of those nations it is albeit a very gilded cage.
