“To me free speech is not when you see something good and then you purposefully write bad. To me that’s very dangerous speech and you become angry at it. But that’s not free speech.”

I realize it’s like an endless stream of this right now, but….remember all the “don’t tread on me”s and pocket constitutions and OUTRAGES over threats to free speech from “shadow bans” and “political correctness” and college campuses activists and…whatnot.

They mean NONE of it, not really. They never have. It’s always been an exercise in special pleading, not principle.

They hate identity politics because its encroaching on their turf. They hate moral relativism because it threatens to level the playing field. They hate when they see others “policing speech” because they want to own that game. And wear use the language of principle as a disguise, both because it makes them feel better about themselves and because it works. But only so long as YOU let it.

Whatever else this absurd excuse for an administration has or has not done, it has forever exposed that fact to the world, so long as we all pay attention.
