Freedom of expression, like most freedom froms, can get extremely messy.
We hope people will use their freedom responsibly, but that is not always the case.
If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”
To say things such as, “I would never participate with those people” is a closed-minded, ignorant thing to do. It is an attempt to stay in a safe space. To prevent being offended.
If one does not want to participate, simply do not participate. Stay where the law protects one. There is no use in virtue signaling when doing so, simply move along.
