282 в США. Трамп подписал резолюцию

The resolution demands “the President and the President’s Cabinet… use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups” and requires “the heads of other Federal agencies… improve the reporting of hate crimes and… emphasize the importance of the collection, and… reporting to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, of hate crime data by State and local agencies”.
As egregious and disgusting as many of the groups mentioned are, this is still — last time I checked — the United States of America. The only country that has enshrined in law its commitment to defending people’s rights to say whatever they want, no matter how nasty, depraved, absurd, or “deplorable”.

Резолюции требует, что бы “президент и президентский Кабинет … используют все имеющиеся ресурсы, чтобы обратиться к угрозе, представленной теми группами”, и требует, чтобы “главы других Федеральных агентств … улучшили сообщение о преступлениях на почве ненависти, и … подчеркивают важность коллекции и …, сообщающий Федеральному бюро расследований, данных о преступлении на почве ненависти государственными и местными агентствами”.
Столь же вопиющий и отвратительный, как многие упомянутые группы, это все еще — в прошлый раз, когда я проверил — Соединенные Штаты Америки. Единственная страна, которая хранила в законе ее обязательство защищать права людей говорить что они хотят, неважно как противно, развращенно, абсурдно или “презренно” выглядит их речь.

'War on free speech': Conservatives warn Trump of 'hate' measure
'Open-ended' mandate by Congress 'invites abuses of power by the state'
A collection of conservative leaders have written to President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan expressing “grave concern” about a joint resolution approved by the Senate and House targeting “hate speech.”

Hastily enacted Sept. 14 without public debate, Public Law 115-58, the leaders write, could “lead to unconstitutional suppression of freedom of expression aimed at silencing those smeared by political opponents as, for example, ‘haters,’ ‘racists’ or ‘bigots.'”

“Many of us have been slandered in this fashion, falsely characterized as ‘white supremacists’ or some other, similarly disparaging epithet simply because we support, for example, traditional marriage, civil liberties rather than Sharia, secure borders and the enforcement of our immigration laws and/or effective counterterrorism policies,” they write.

Even worse, they say, the name-calling is “just the leading edge of an aggressive campaign to ruin the financial condition and prevent the widespread dissemination of the work of individuals and groups being targeted for what amounts to unrestricted political warfare.”
