Yeah it's fascinating that Fuhrer Trump's worshippers harass and threaten anyone who doesn't support their demagogue. The same people who think freedom of speech means any disagreement with them or unflattering news is somehow oppressing them. They REALLY don't like it when you quote their Supreme Leader. Makes it hard for them to deny all the stuff Trump says and does!

Noam Chomsky quote on Censorship. Amen, Noam: Land of the free, freedom for all, liberty, free will - they all require a humility, a certain strength of character, an inner peace to let others have freedoms of expression when they express things we do not embrace. #censorship

"Freedom of speech" does not mean insulting everyone as you wish because it's just your "opinion".

Behind the badges, beneath the robes, and important titles...beats hearts that are no more perfect than your own.  Just because someone has a position of authority doesn't mean that they are paragons of virtue. As such, they are just as capable as anyone of having dark motives behind their bright smiles and smooth talk.  Be careful who you trust and always double-check what you hear from them.
