For anyone still confused:

Please remember that actual freedom of speech does not mean you have a right to a platform and listeners. Your freedom is unaffected by being muted, blocked, or banned. You’re still free to stand on whatever street corner you choose and rant at whoever will listen.

But when you’re in someone else’s house, you play by their rules. You’re there because they allow you to be, and that privilege can and will be revoked if they decide they don’t want you there.

@InvaderXan Sounds like bullshit. Because human rights does not protect one person from other person misconduct. Human rights protect people from government only. That's why it's nonsense when one says his freedom of speech is breached by banning on private website.

@boxo @InvaderXan the universal declaration of human rights doesn't even use the term "freedom of speech" but "freedom of opinion and expression" instead, and i think this is where we should start the discourse 🤷

@boxo @InvaderXan because i don't think we need the basic human right to say whatever you want, if that includes lies and hatespeech ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@tethre @InvaderXan Of course we need! it is vitally important to survive under the government authority

@rugk
Also good to remember that the US constitution does not equal the declaration of human rights.
@InvaderXan

@webmind @InvaderXan sure, but the meaning regarding this article (esp. for this comic) is the same…

@InvaderXan
Sounds pretty obvious to me. And that's from someone who usually struggles with communication.

@InvaderXan Thanks!

Moreover, Holocaust denial, as I found it after 3 minutes on gab.com/gab.ai, is justiciable in many countries. And justifiably so.

In Germany »freedom of hate speech« at least doesn't condemn the recent murder of a conservative (!) politician who campaigned for refugee relief.
