US: Disgrace: 51% of Democrats, 37% of Republicans support making “hate speech” a crime

YouGov conducted a nearly but not quite identical poll (more on that in a minute) on this topic last October. I made a big deal about it at the time and have had liberal friends ever since telling me that it’s a fluke result, that most Democrats don’t really support banning hate speech, and that I’m generally being alarmist. Well, here’s YouGov’s sequel. I’m done entertaining doubts that this is a real problem.

Don’t start hissing at the left yet, though. I hate to say it but it ain’t their party that’s growing in support for making hate speech a crime…
