Day 71: First Amendment to the United States 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.”

Where in that text does it say “I can say whatever I want, no matter how wrong, sexist, racist, homophobic, or otherwise offensive and no one can tell me I’m wrong or call me out on my bullshit?”

Where in that text does it say that private companies must allow racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise offensive content to stay up on their website/forum?

Before you throw out the “freedom of speech” argument in relation to you offensive bullshit, I strongly suggest you glance at the amendment you’re invoking.
