The Sacrament of the Holy Heckler’s Veto.
Ms. Pants on Fire says what?
Another endorsement of the heckler’s veto.
“These are complicated issues…”
“I believe that people should be able to see for themselves…”
“Freedom of speech does not mean that it can be arbitrary nonsense.”
“…a free-speech advocate but not a free-speech absolutist.”
Watch your tongue
“Minnesota is targeting speech itself.”
“Bring me your rage!”
Showing a woman with a stroller is now verboten
Not so free speech
“…Ambar on Monday took questions from reporters and tried to address what she says are misconceptions.”
“Hate speech isn’t free speech”
“Operating multiple fake accounts and purchasing account interactions are strictly prohibited.”
“The transcript of the debate and vote indicate that the decision was made on political grounds.”
“I firmly believe that limiting the range of voices in society erodes our democracy.”
“I think what you said was just straight propaganda!”
When the government keeps picking winners and losers… literally
“Ripe for politicization”? That’s ripe.

Despite the inevitable court challenges
Laying the case bare
“Every other Tuesday morning, several dozen Facebook employees gather over breakfast to come up with the rules…”

“…designed to chill the president’s free speech rights on matters of public concern.”
“Many complainants cogently reported concern about the university implicitly sanctioning racial bias against Caucasians.”
“Land a boat on that pipeline easement, and you could be charged with a felony.”
Perhaps satisfying, but still wrong
“…the sort of free speech absolutism that says absolutely anything goes”
No violations of terms of service
‘Fixing’ the problem to make it worse.
Free speech includes views you disagree with.
Question the timing.
“There’s not 51 votes to dismiss it before the managers get to call the case.”
“significant enough to have shifted the document’s meaning…”
“It is certainly not how the executive, current or in the future, should handle such a call.”
