Hate speech is a term for speech intended to degrade person or group of people based on their race, gender, age, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, language ability, ideology, social class, occupation, appearance (height, weight, hair color, etc.), mental capacity, and any other distinction that might be considered by some as a liability.
The case is very simple: an X player logs in the game and at the start of his/her logging as he/she said in ss 4(from forum) is annoyed by romanians people. That irritation against the romanians is so evident (for X causes) that,the player has found a term: ROTARD, which he explained simply:
‘ Definition of rotard : people that live in Romania and are retards’.
”I’ll rephrase the definition; people that speak the romanian language and are retards.’
The terms :
ROTARD ( it is not a term that player invented, because there are limitation to the people who can come up with a term)
Often used to describe a person who is obsessed with the Wankel design rotary engine, and usually Mazda RX7s in particular, to the point of total stupidity. In the mind of a hardcore rotard, teh RX7 is the finest automobile in modern history, and undoubtedly the best handling car evar. Most rotards will bristle and get quite defensive when confronted with factual issues relating to the fragility of their beloved engine, and will tend to make pointedly idiotic arguments to the contrary.
A spinning Retard; or a rotating retard, used to express something more retarded than just a retard.

Slang: Disparaging.a. a mentally retarded person.b. a person who is stupid, obtuse, or ineffective in some way: a hopeless social retard.
Rather inclusive, no? There are many points and opinions to discuss in here. Let’s take the 4 pillars that support this speech :
1.Reclamation of terms – ROTARD, RETARD, ROMANIANS . First two words are examples of words that have been used to degrade, demean. After that the player add ‘ROMANIANS’ and use those 2 words to verbally injure members of particular group of players : players from Romania.
2.Hating the Inanimate: out there in the debate field is a questionable divide between what you can hate and what you can’t. This player obviously hates romanians, she or he said it’s annoyed by them when she or he logs in game.
3.The Freedom to Argue, People Speaking: If a player simple says “romanian are rotards,” is it any different than if a leader of hero band/ official team says it?We live in a time of relative equality.
4.The exception of the rules .Can we tolerate a single person which advocate for hatefull speech against romanians? If this has an impact on people, then we should act to disable the hatred ideology.
I wonder how that player can live with so much hate against romanians, when in the band were he or she activate are also romanians. When she/he log in game is annoyed by that band own members (romanians of course)?
