Yea! The government should start regulating speech! Oh wait, Trump is president. Maybe we should hesitate before we yield the very 1st amendment of the Constitution to the whims of elected officials who might have very different ideas about right and wrong from a significant portion of our society

You don't realize white nationalists use "free speech" as a way to appeal to centrists? There's something to be said about the danger of relying on state power of course, but it should also be apparent that white nationalism is violence in-itself. There is no democratic value in protecting it.
