Actually, it's mostly you who appears to have lost the ability to think critically (if you ever had it). Simply put, If you were able to think critically you wouldn't have resorted to personal attacks when I told you that your anecdotal story doesn't back up the position that you claimed it did
Show me where I did this? Sure didn't stop you from escalating.
Free speech means the government doesn't interfere with your right to say what you like, it doesn't mean people have to like you or the odious things that you post. People can like free speech and still think you're an overbearing, know-nothing ass who they'd rather not associate with.
You are correct and suffice it to say my opinion of your opinion is of the same low esteem. The line is drawn in regards to free speech when those domestic terrorists start using force to exert their will outside of the physical protections provided by law. This is our right. You don't have to like my opinion, I don't have to like yours. But neither of us is allowed to use force to coerce the other to our way of thinking or beat our opponent into submission.
We all have the right to say what we want without fear of physical violence. Freedom of speech died first on the Internet, and now there's fascist groups like antifa trying to quell opinions they don't like by using terrorist tactics of oppression. People who broke down because the words trump 2016 were chalked on the sidewalks are now attacking anyone that disagrees with them. This fits the tried and true profiles of mental disorder, but I could be wrong.
You can attempt to attack my character all you want, call me names etc, it won't change the truth of my observations.
Either way, we have strayed far from the topic and this is just another dead horse we're beating.
