There is always a terrible cost to allowing fascism and nazism to propagate in any form.

They and all the primitive 'rule by strongman' ideologies (including authoritarian communism) inevitably result in mass death. Their methods were damaging enough to the tribes that embraced them before the advent of technology, but now they threaten the survival of the species.

I advocate zero tolerance for these beliefs and their public expression as a matter of law.

I was suddenly and forcibly reminded of this simple truth today. If we do not stamp them out now, the later cost will be measured in human heaps, misery, incalculable loss.

It is a demonstrable fact of history.

1. With some exceptions, hate speech is protected by the First Amendment.

Unless there is a significant societal shift in the way the First is interpreted, it won't be legislated out of our society.

Of course, this is nothing new. The First Amendment and slavery co-existed for nearly 100 years.

I agree with your underlying assertion. In a just society, they would be mocked off the stage. Alas, no.
