You love arguing with shadows huh? Let me spoon feed this to you...Why don't you show up for work tomorrow and protest something on your employers time. Also try exercising your freedom of speech by cussing your boss out. Let us know how that goes.
If you don't understand by now that we have freedom of speech and the right to protest but we don't have freedom from consequences in certain situations, then I don't know what else to tell you. You're in for a very rude awakening.
The players can kneel all they want. That doesn't change the fact that owners and managers can legally take action against the players IF THEY CHOOSE, because the players do not have some sacred right to protest while on the job. None of us do. I also have the right to disagree with the players, speak out, and change the channel. See how that works?
Regarding private media platforms, they can do what they want, but when they hold a monopoly on communications and infringe on others' rights, then it becomes problematic.
Your here crying about censorship and violations of first amendment rights (For people you agree with) and your elsewhere arguing in favor of censorship and violations of first amendment rights (for people you don’t agree with). That doesn’t make you principled. It makes you an opportunistic hypocrite.
I actually agree with you about Facebook and Twitter squashing this article and purging conservative voices from its platforms. I said as much in the thread dedicated to it weeks ago. But that’s cause I actually have principles and try to apply them consistently. Something some people might want to try to do themselves sometimes.
