There’s a reason “free speech” is the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Many people sacrificed their lives so that US citizens and others across the world could speak freely, without fear of retribution. Fight for it, just like they did.
Because when it’s gone, so aren’t these United States.
First Amendment of the US Constitution
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
