. Hate speech laws would not be constitutional in the US and should not be enacted.

And to clear up something preemptively, free speach means that the government can't censor you. With that definition, this is, just a tiny bit, censorship.
. I point out the logical fallacy of claiming an accusation is actual proof of anything. All you need to do is run afoul of the wrong type of person to get an accusation made. I'm reminded of a college student accused of being a nazi because he was reading a book that showed a nazi swatiska on the cover. He was reading a book documenting the rise and fall of the Reich for a class.
Of course I would have to wonder what kind of person you are if you get called out on hate speach charges (what's legal isn't not always morally right).
Edit: I also find this interesting link that lists various pro hate speech laws arguments and then refutes them.
