There is free speech in this country. This means you can say what you want to whom you want. I defend the right to free speech. I don’t have to agree with what you say just as you don’t have to agree with what I say.
The right to say it is still there and will be defended.
The right to free speech is also paired with the right to react to that speech. I can say what I want to say. But there is a reaction to what I say. You can say what you want to say. But I will react to what you say as well. We all have the freedom to say whatever we’d like. However, there are consequences to those words.
Free speech is a two-way conversation.
