Freedom of speech is the right to express yourself. As a former newspaper reporter and editor, we received trash from hate groups of all kinds. We did not publish it. The newspaper was privately owned and it could express its opinions. As a community service we accepted the opinions of other, but we did not accept hate mail, inflammatory or threatening submissions.
Any one can write want they want, get it copied and go house to house to deliver it. They can voice their opinions at public forums. They can voice their opinions here.
However, freedom speech does not mean that everyone has to carry your message for you. If support the Klan, belong to a Neo Nazi group or other such hate group your comments to me will most likely be deleted. If you threaten to blow up a building or shoot somebody, the only responsibility that others have is to make your threats known to the proper authorities and not spread your defamatory views. You cannot yell "fire" in a crowded theater. You will go to jail. You cannot joke about having a bomb in your bag before boarding a plane--you will be arrested.
Freedom of speech is not absolute. Freedom of speech allows you to voice your views, state your opinion, voice your support or opposition. It does not give you the right to slander, defame or fuel inflammatory situations with inaccurate and substantiated information.
I say all of this as a former reporter, who irritated many public officials over the years. I was never sued. I had responses to my columns and most if not all were printed. Some we sent back and told them that some parts were not pertinent and to either rewrite or they would not be publish.
Not only do you have the right to eliminate hate comments you have an obligation to eliminate anything that is submitted to you. That is a right granted to you by this forum.
You also have the right to eliminate what I have said here. If my comments are ever eliminated, I will write my own Hub. Inappropriate Hubs can be withheld from publication. Freedom of the press is a right that should be cherished and never abused.
