The Unacceptable Speech

Here is some speech that some people wanna destroy:

We are seeing a censorship wave from the right the likes we have never seen. Shredding common core math books, “Don’t Say Gay”, Maus book banning, burning the muṣḥaf, denouncing reality as “fake news”. Do we hear one peep about that? Nope. But try to block direct harassment and it’s a deadly sin apparently.

(I realize that this is a tu quoque, but in this case the tu is a pretty damn huge quoque. I’ve argued against extreme free speech in the past, so this tu quoque isn’t the entirety of my argument.
