No, it's a societal thing.

Already we see people that are okay with banning, censoring hate speech. Go to any campus and ask.

They are okay with banning hate speech.

Once the threshold is reached, there will be a consensus among the people to censor hate speech, because there already is a growing consensus.

It doesn't matter what the speech is, if they can call it hate speech, then the growing thought process will be to ban it.

P-R-I-V-A-T-E Corporations have the option of banning whatever the hell they want to. If you don't like it, don't engage with them.

To say that Facebook proclaiming something to be "hate speech" will lead to a change in laws in this country shows that you have not paid attention to the history of the Supreme Court's rulings when it comes to hate speech. What you are purporting is a slippery slope.

Our first lady is absolutely lovely and a good representation for America! Shame on Facebook for banning this meme!

You know Thunder, I try to make this point around here as well but it just seems to not get much traction other than, ''yeabutt''. I think my father coined that phrase when I was a kid. That aside, the notion that the profit motive is the biggest driver of all the corruption , imbalances and hidden agendas around us just isn't worthy of conspiratorial considerations. Alas.

And thanks for the kudos in that other thread by the way, it helps now and then to receive what little appreciation can be found in this Trumpian Empire. .
