“Hate Speech” Hotline to open in CO

Tuesday, the Boulder City Council will take up the matter of allocating public funding for a “hate hotline,” which would give residents an opportunity to report incidents in which Boulderites use tactless language.

The council should realize, however ugly it may be, Americans still have the constitutional right to be racist, homophobic, Jew-hating or even to make bad jokes – as anyone who’s heard the one about the redneck who invented the ejection seat on the helicopter can tell you.

Should everyone keep the hate-line number on their cellphone speed dial from now on? And remember, only call if your attacker uses racist or insensitive language while beating you to a pulp. After all, according to hate-law advocates, it’s not genuine hate unless the perpetrator makes fun of your heritage.

Sigh…..

I cant wait to see this challenged on First Amendment grounds.

Have some hate speech of your own you want to unleash? Heres a pretty good outlet for it
