What gives HSU professor Stephens the right to decide what's "hate speech" and what isn't? ("Mapping #Hate," Blog Jammin', May 16.) I can well imagine what to her is hate speech is what others would call being politically incorrect. And how did she decide which parts of the country are more hateful than others? I have the sneaking suspicion that the parts with the large red blotches are the same ones that voted for someone other than Obama.
