Free speech is something we should all embrace.
Similarly, condemning the speech and actions of hateful and violent bigots is something we should all do.
I'd love to see a joint rally based on those principles. It's one thing that liberals and conservatives should be able to agree upon.
Completely agree, and can't stand when people think they have a right to prevent someone from legally protesting because they dislike the message. I'm also uneasy at social media identifying protesters and then demanding that their company's fire them.
Years ago I used to work for an old-school sales manager whose only book he recommended was Trump's "Art of the Deal," so I read it and could not have been more underwhelmed. Needless to say that manager and I were very different people with very different views. Had I participated in an anti-war protest he surely wouldn't have been happy, but given the direction this country is headed... could he have used that as an excuse to fire me?
I'm of the general belief that if someone is willing to post hate signs in their yard, or participate in a hateful protest, that the best thing to do is highlight their absurdity and make a comedy of it. The KKK was brought down by this very tactic. The very worst thing to do is to Ban these people from expressing their views.
