@LoveIsGood No, "hate speech" is a legal term for speech that explicitly calls for violence against people based on their ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation. Milo's speeches qualify on all three regards: he encourages violence against gay and transgender people, Jewish people, and refugees from Muslim-majority countries. His followers are often armed and belligerent when they show up to his engagements: at one such event, one of his fans shot and seriously wounded someone. They make death threats against people on and off campus. Inviting him to speak (especially at an event where there is no one to counter anything he says) does not offer any benefit to students at a college and actively puts their lives at risk.
