The Bible is full of admonitions for us to watch our words. We read things like 'death and life are in the power of the tongue' (Proverbs 18:21) and that we should let no corrupt words proceed out of our mouth, but only that which gives grace to the hearers.'
(Ephesians 4:29). So we watch what we say not just to be "nice" but because there is power in our words to set things into motion. However, each one of us is accountable to God for our words, not to a government. He is the One who will judge rightly. (Matthew 12:36). He has given us the ability to speak of our own free will and the rights that God gives to mankind, should not be taken away by a government. In America, our founders realized this and wrote the first amendment which gives us the right to free speech, not the right to not be offended by the speech of others.
