It's the thought of ending up with things like that which make people worried when a government starts to overreach and control things which should never, ever be touched, like freedom of speech. You see it with Scotland too and their ridiculous attempt to criminalise speech up there. There's this overbearing notion of "we're just looking out for you", which starts off with a pandemic and sounds benign at first, then turns into something more nefarious, all under the guise of 'government knows best'. Once that premise is accepted and the government are given too much control over your lives, it can end up taking away other freedoms too.No one is worried about "hate speech" against Judaism and Christianity.
