I do believe a certain letter writer — whose opinion was published today in the Las Vegas newspaper under the headline: “It’s time for the United States to ban hate speech” — has achieved the remarkable accomplishment of penning the near-perfect self-contradictory argument.
The letter concludes:
In my mind, there is something morally wrong in treating all views as equally protected by the First Amendment. Any speech that is logically inimical to the rights of the minority should not have such protection.
Thus, a minority group that speaks ill of another minority group’s rights should be denied their First Amendment rights. Got it? And which minority group will police such hate speech?
