Well manslaughter is the crime of killing someone. No one has ever been killed by a text. So it is no strange wonder that someone such as yourself would torture the English language in order to justify denying someone justice.
The cost and consequence of speech is the displacement of air around the mouth and the movement of sound waves throughout the environment. Societies are often superstitious.
Your innocent little counterprotesters, all of them misinformed by the media, beat and spat upon innocent people trying to have a free speech rally, while they menacingly awaited for them to be done. They were evacuated under armed guard for their own protection. Sorry but denying others their rights is not free speech.
Yes, restricting hate speech is to convict someone of a thought and speech crime.
No I said denying people their rights for social gain is tyranny. Were the 50 rally goers doing anything like that? No? Then tough luck.
Again, abolitionists, socialists, civil rights activists, and yes racists, advocate for free speech when their free speech is threatened. I don't see anything particularly enlightening about that study.
