Freedom of Speech

Freedom of speech is becoming confused with freedom to preach racist diatribe.

In the New York subway, a bigoted poster says, that Palestinians are savages but Israelis are civilized.

Support the civilized man in the war against savages, the advert decrees.

But who acts more savagely than the "civilized man" spreading destructive conflict and uncivil unease?

Freedom of speech extends so far as to express an opinion, perhaps against religion,

But this freedom should never extend to blatant and abhorrent bigotry, agression, opression and affliction.
