People tend to believe that freedom of speech has absolutely no limitations. WRONG.
Limits on speech were incorporated in the criminal code in relation to treason, sedition, blasphemous and defamatory libel, disruption of religious worship, hate propaganda, spreading false news, public mischief, obscenity, indecency and other forms.
According to Keegstra, the genocide of Jews NEVER HAPPENED. Gas chambers, extermination, the dead bodies of victims... it was all made up!....
What a goof.
Anyway, Keegstra was in some hot water after that but the smartie pants decided to argue that he was exercising his freedom of speech. Well, clearly Keegstra didn't teach law, because there are limitations to our freedoms. Some of you may complain that there is a problem with limitations of a freedom, but really people... freedom from what. If we didn't have limitations, we would have people like Keegstra teaching our future generation and then we would all be doomed.
Keegstra was spreading hate speech and courts found that his breach the limitations of his oh so cherished freedom.
Hate speech is whatever vilifies a person or a group based on their social marker(s). This includes, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation ( That's right you homophobes), religion etc.
We see this constantly, especially on social networks such as Twitter. We see the senseless minds of people ranting off of the keyboard and onto your timeline about this crap. And they'll admit they're being ignorant.
What they won't admit to is that they should just put their foot in their mouth and perhaps keep it there.
What else are you ignorant minds that have access to the internet saying? Slavery never happened? First Nations people were never colonized, tortured and forced to convert to Christianity?
...Chris Brown never assaulted Rihanna?
