This got modded insightful? You should *not* have an absolute right to proclaim hatred, because then we can't have public order. Proclaiming hatred in front of people can and does start fights which can result in people being killed or seriously injured. See in the UK the Public Order Act, especially section 5 which is used quite often (sometimes overused, admittedly). That normally results in a moderate fine, but I think this particular case was dealt with under the more severe anti-harrasment law.
