Making this illegal is against our first amendment of free speech, and also displays early signs of fascism. America is supposedly the land of the free, yet we are on our way to a fascist country. We are one of the only countries that allow forms of hate speech towards the government, which is one reason why we are ranked one of the freest countries. Freedom of countries, ranked annually since 1972, ranks countries by political/economic rights, and civil liberties- ranked from the universal declaration of human rights. From their definitions, we are not the freest country and by acting against our first amendment rights, we will have lower rankings. We can't possibly be one of the better countries if we are regressing. By taking this right away is not only taking the power from the people and free speech but also supports racist, misogynistic, homophobic and transphobic ideologies.
