You dont think it would be an issue if people in an office were sitting around talking about how gay people are not human, and should not have equal rights, or that black people are sub-human.  Hate speech has no place in a civilised society

This is some muckity-muck consultant on BBC urging companies to ban certain speech. One step away from government doing the same thing. That's what we should say NO to.

I'm far less concerned about companies having a loose speech code that they choose for themselves, under no threat of government interference.

All societies have some restrictions on speech, even your beloved USA.  Try walking into a cinema and yelling that there is a fire, when there isnt one and see what happens to you.  

Also civilised people do not hate people for something that they have no control over, ie skin colour, race, sexuality etc

Do beliefs count?

now do fire alarms.

you are talking misdemeanors, not speech laws.  yelling fire doesn't require speech restriction laws.

I would say so, hate their beliefs but dont hate the person, they may not know any better, especially if they are surrounded by others who have the same beliefs

So... what if their beliefs happen to be that they hate certain people for what they are?

This retread is an immense red herring. The cinema owner's and other patrons' rights are violated when someone falsely yells fire (or heckles!). This is not a government free speech issue.

The racism of the left again.

I wonder if the student would still be there if they were white and said something that fucking ridiculous.

With stupid comments like that, she would be a sure fit as a new Tory adviser

I'm alright with that guy. He's an Anglican so he's already a little off, but he hasn't really done what I or a few others haven't done here with speculative discussions on controversial topics.

It's these guys that are bringing up the other side (or should I say bringing it down).

Yeah, go kill a bunch of innocent people for doing fuck all, that'll show 'em! They don't seem to be able to get it through their thick untermensch skulls that doing exactly what the terrorist scum do doesn't work.

Edit: I thought I'd link what was actually said by Sabisky.

It's really not as bad as the media is making out.

Edit 2: Welp, looks like it doesn't matter any more, the media as well as the usual angry leftist mob on social media has driven him out.

Edit 3: I should really start just putting this altogether before I post, but these were the other comments he made:
