There seems to be a growing trend to identify with a perceived victim group and then declare any critical comment against them as hate. My son at seven often plays the victim because he is made to do homework. I actually saw/heard a lady at the airport say that the screening lines caused her to miss a flight and that she was a victim of security (true). Hate speech is clear. It is a personal attack on persons or person. But saying that I need a haircut is not hateful. "You are a conservative". Is not."You are not paying attention" is not. But it seems those are hate speech to a victim?

Very strange but I was talking to a Lawyer who defends those charged with a crime. He had Iraqi clients refugees that went back and forth monthly to collect their refugee checks here but live there. No lying it just is.
Eric, I am sorry that is a great story but I have no idea that was the point of your question. I grew up in Manhattan, I always knew what people were saying, you would probably call it blunt or rude. Not a criticism just an explanation.
Great example/concept. A Bronx kid in polite Wyoming. Really would raise eyebrows showing that sensibilities need to be honored but not worshipped.
