These people, the anti-speech people, the anti Bill of Rights people, the anti Constitution people want you to shut up and they are happy to use the state to do it. For them totalitarianism isn’t strange. It isn’t unusual. In Social Justice Warrior circles such totalitarianism is encouraged. It’s Maoism basically.
Fight these people always. There are always people who want to blow out the light of liberty. It is our obligation to make sure that never happens.
Snopes.com and their ilk are as biased as anything they “fact check.” It’s all a ruse. The goal is to shut down discussion and to control people. The thought police want to close the Overton Window to as small as possible. Conform to the narrow politically correct way of speaking or be cast out.
Sorry but speech doesn’t work that way in the United States. You don’t get to do that.
