In order for something to be clickbait there has to be a link posted & I didn't post any links at all in the OP.

When you end up with five or six megacorporations controlling over 90% of media, you end up in an absurd universe where Jake Tapper is called a leftist by the right, and celebrated by liberals with impaired reasoning abilities!

Freedom of speech is very important, and we mustn't selectively pick and choose who has the right to voice their opinion.
I don't care for supremacists, I don't care for antifa, but they have a right to PEACEFUL assembly. That goes for guest speakers at colleges and universities as well. We mustn't drown out opposing opinions, we must listen, respectfully, and answer in kind.

it is almost impossible to engage in hate speech without engaging in libel.

you have to present libelous "facts" to make hate speech palatable to a gullible audience

I think it is morally incumbent upon our nation's schools to drop the endlessly biased ideological indoctrination and start teaching logical discourse. If today's youth learned how to stick to fact while avoiding emotionally-charged jargon, tomorrow's adults would be less prone to injure others through free speech.

Chapter 4: Logical Discourse
