@cwebber Counterpoint: Don't let free speech absolutism trick you into being pro fascists.

@pettter I didn't claim "free speech absolutism" and I am strongly anti-fascism. And yes, people shouldn't be tricked by that argument (and some people are being tricked).

Notably fascist support of "free speech absolutism" usually isn't what it claims, or actually a defense of free speech at all. Usually it boils down to "let the worst people speak" and itself is more than happy to take out other voices, possibly with violence. That's part of my argument here.
