If you stand on a street corner yelling awful things about a specific ethnic or cultural group that is hate speech. If your intention is to malign or attack an entire group of people then that is repugnant and as a society i don't feel we need to protect that.
If you want to say terrible things about a person, a company, a government etc go right ahead. But I don't think we need to protect vile, hate filled bigotry.
