So then their's already a double standard then because I feel all that was stated above is "Hate Speech". Then would it be racism if I were to say obama was an idiot?
Who is your dedicated expert to tell us what "Hate Speech" is?
I am sure you did not start this new communist rule to protect Palestinians or Serbs or Christians...you had others in mind.
Well, none of you owners of of this site seems even remotely capable of deciding what is "hate speech", not to even mention a "subtle" one.
I think that you do not have enough knowledge to do that, and that you are not paying enough lawyers to assist you with that.
This is all a joke...and you can ban me all you want.
If you really implement this "hate rule", I hope ATS is no more.
Time to face it..every time you try to engage people in a dialog you run the risk of offending someone..TERMS & CONDITIONS and CLOSING THREADS should be used on those who FLAGRANTLY break the SPIRIT and Intention of the rules as written.

Hate speech is a convenient label for people to use when an unpopular point of view is being espoused.It's interesting to watch what people do when they are given even a modicum of power. We discover how they choose to control a discussion using TERMS & Condiions Civility and decorum...and when those rules no longer control the topics posted or the content of the conversation its HATE SPEECH...
This website is your own personal sandbox..we get that ..you make the rules..
It's very interesting to see how you apply them.

If this website is a reflection of the world at large...or of the people who run the website..either way what does it say.

No my friend, you are watching the end of free speech on ATS, because any critical theory can be transformed into hate speech.
