As usual Captain Ed hits the nail on the head:
However, the notion that the state can decide which political speech springs from "hate" and which springs from reasoned debate only derives from the philosophy that the state must remain supreme over the individual -- indeed, that the state has omniscient insight into the mind and soul of an individual.This is exactly the sort of thing our Founding Fathers worked so hard to prevent by drafting the 1st Amendment! We must not allow the concept of 'hate crime' to become enconsed on our culture lest we doom ourselves to travel down the same road the British seem to be treading.
