    Free speech is what it says, free speech, end of, period, finito, that fact you are debating what free speech is clearly indicates you do not believe in it. It seems you believe free speech is a world were only your own extreme ideology is allowed to be heard unchallenged. That is the opposite of free speech.
    Yea so you of free speech is anti-white racism. Wow folk like Hitler would be proud of you. You are a disgrace to humanity.
