Our friend at Comix Division explores a dangerous trend on Facebook where the term “hate speech” is now broadly defined as whatever offends someone.
In the “Snowflake” generation that could be something as innocuous as G’day. In Britain people have already been arrested and jailed for perceived hate speech by the Government.
“The Ministry of Truth has finally arrived. In a world first, Facebook will turn over user data to French courts on individuals suspected of hate speech. “Hate speech is no longer considered part of freedom of speech, it’s now on the same level as terrorism.” WTF!?”

Excellent commentary. In the context of Comix Division the comic book purges of the 1950’s ring eerily familiar.

Outstanding point and one not known by many. The bad old days that found some of the best comics removed from the shelves, particularly EC.
