I couldn't disagree with this article more.

Fascist speech is free speech, and should be protected by constitutional rights. That doesn't mean individuals are obligated to respect those rights, especially when they feel that the net result would be less freedom for everyone (ie. if protecting the rights of fascists leads to them in power, they will then reduce everyone's rights).

I wholly agree with this also. I'd also add that private companies have a choice on what they will or won't tolerate, and that refusing to tolerate hate speech does not constitute "censorship," as much as Gab and Rob Monster of Epik.com like to rail on about. I believe in free speech, but I won't tolerate hate speech in my house, my work or in my presence. Not censorship, just being a decent human being.
