Hate speech and false propoganda against others has no place in the realm of freedom of speech. Freedom of speech was and should always remain for sharing useful ideas and opinions in the interest of furthering the growth of a society or organization. Not ignorantly slandering other people, races and ideals simply because of it's different or you don't like them or it.
ESPECIALLY when you don't have a full and true understanding of what your talking trying to relay.
Freedom of speech is allowed only as long as it may not cause any harm to others. And white supremacists rallies and speeches do not fall under this category. So no, white supremacists do not have the right to free speech in public forums. If they simply stood around and talked about how great and wonderful they were or worked out how to overcome problems for the betterment of all then fine, freedom of speech would apply. But that's not what they do.
They blame others for doing and wanting the exact same things they enjoy, like wanting good jobs or riding buses, or going to a nice school or having a nice home in a nice neighborhood.. Not to mention they constantly promote violence against others.
White supremacists take through violence and say they conquered and are strong and victorious. They believe in survival of the fittest, or Darwinism. Which has proven to be a false concept even within the animal kingdom.
So remember this when people say white supremacists have a right to free speech. They do amongst themselves and in private settings, just like anyone. But in a public forum, no. Not the way they do it.
But somehow in our world today, those entrusted to serve the public such as government and police services arrest Indigenous people praying in protest of a devastating oil and gas infastructure which encroaches on their very livelihood, yet kindly relocate for a predominately white town as was the case in North Dakota.
Or they arrest a young Indigenous woman for burning a small bundle of ceremonial sage at a rally. Yet allow flaming torch wielding, camo wearing and weapon toting hotheads run rampant on the streets causing mayhem and violence.
Well something is very wrong and it's time to correct this circus we're all a part of. Because.... #AllLifeMatters
