Freedoms and liberties that we enjoy today seems very innate to our lives However most of these have been earned through great sacrifice and hard work Out of all our rights freedom of speech is perhaps the most cherished and one of the most controversial Hate speech is a price we all endure to ensure our speech stays free But with hate speech becoming increasingly common many wonder if it is too great of a price to pay or one that we should have to pay at all This paper will address some of the issues surrounding hate speech its controversy with free speech and its regulation with respect to Jean Saindons article In the article Hate Speech and Free Speech the author Jean Saindon tries to draw our attention to this matter by beginning the article with a basic question Should we ban hate speech on campus Banning hate speech can prove to be a controversial issue and needs lot of aspects to be analyzed before drawing such conclusions The article infers authors thesis as Hate speech should not be banned on campus and his claims are very much attached to his key conceptual questionFor a university to implement such codes which ban hate speech even in the name of tolerance is not it an approach towards the violation of the basic premise on which a university operates Contrariwise the authors position in the article lacks sincere support for his claim and can be rejected with appropriate analysis With this in support my thesis constitutes the denial of the authors thesis and examines why Hate speech should be banned on campusThe author begins the article with a question whether hate speech should be banned on campus or not however his immediate examples are not anything related to a campus or its banning of hate speech He diverts the attention towards groups of critical in Israel and policies in Iraq which may involve actions related to hate speech but this does not satisfy enough or merely corelate to actions of banning hate speech within campus Hence the author commits the fallacy of red herring trying to capture the attention of the readers by raising exclusive events elsewhere
