There is no free speech

Post by lovinlife101 » Sat Dec 08, 2018 12:26 pm

So a government school just fired a man for exercising his free speech.

You may think I would fall on the other side of this issue with my unrelenting support for LGBTQ+, but I also support free speech.

Nearly everyone on here has called me the wrong gender, bullied me, and threatened me with death.

But if obscene, profane, sexist, racist, and hate speech is not protected, there is no free speech!

I prefer the large curd cottage cheese.

I'm more a small curd guy but I can roll either way. I certainly won't call the cops on you for large curd.

Does the size of the curd depend on how big the cottage where it was made was?


There sure isn't as much excitement, fawning, or adulation over our first orange president as there was over our first black one. Evidently, orange really isn't the new black.

You guys got me thinking, perhaps it isn't so bad and I could give it a try. The results may not be pretty, though. Same thing with tapioca.

Thanks, Bro. I read somewhere that cops are evil.

As a purely legal matter, the school had every right to fire the teacher for insubordination. Your right to free speech as a public sector employee is limited to your speech made in your capacity as a citizen on matters of public concern.

Now that said, this is what happens when you let the looney left run educational institutions.

The “looney” left will end up saving this great country from the mentally ill, unfit, treasonous US president. And those who still support him.
