Hate Speech

This one is for my conservative readers. Please explain to me what it is, and why after years of mocking it as a liberal infringement of freedom of speech, I regularly hear conservatives throw it around whenever they're criticized.

(for example, the Freepers regularly claim the Hillary Clinton was evil because she engaged in "hate speech," when she demonized the conservative movement by calling it a "vast right-wing conspiracy.")
