You seem to be buying into the fear-mongering tactics of the current right-wing, eh? Bottom line is, hate speech should not be free speech, therefore free speech would not be threatened or taken away. What I want censored is racial, LGBTphobic, and religious slurs, and harmful ideologies such as Nazism and neo-confederatism and white supremacy, etc, since they directly dehumanize and outrage marginalized groups, which have for centuries been fighting an uphill battle for equity. That being said, extreme ideologies/opinions, conspiracies, or even factually incorrect viewpoints which do not trivialize those of the oppressed (believing Earth is flat, believing the moon landing is fake, loving Trump, etc) should not be censored.3. Allowing censorship, basically the removal of free speech, brings us one step closer to becoming a communist state.
Why do you feel so threatened by hate speech being censored and made illegal? Assuming you do not use hateful speech and not a white supremacist, it wouldn't affect you at all.
And if you think communism is largely based on around eliminating hate, you are mistaken beyond belief.
