The fact that right-wingers are butthurt about Fediverse admins exercising the right to freedom of association by refusing to federate with the new Gab instance is additional proof that they don't give a shit about freedom of speech or any other kind of freedom.
If all these goose-stepping snowflakes wanted was a safe space, they could just turn off federation like any other instance.
What they want is the /license/ to force other people to read or listen to their bullshit.
It’s amazing to me how many alleged patriots fail to understand the basics of the first amendment.
@mkb Right-wingers don't understand the Bible or Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations, either. That doesn't stop them from venerating these documents (or the Constitution) as holy writ.
In addition to being goose-stepping snowflakes they're modern-day Know-Nothings. They mistake their willful ignorance for virtue and parade it about, yet dare upbraid the likes of us for "virtue signalling".
Hah! Damn good point.
As an aside I love that we’ve been able to throw “snowflake” back at them.
@mkb I'm a strong believer in fighting fire with fire.
When a right-winger calls me a faggot, I tell them, "I know you're frustrated because you're stuck in the closet, honey, but that's no way to flirt."
Many alt-reich kiddies are still at the stage where they think they can get away with projecting their insecurities and inadequacies onto others.
This is the point I keep making. Freedom of Speech != Requirement to Listen.
@starbreaker Very well said.
