@SueAnnLevy, Sarah Palin, and freedom of speech | #TOpoli
Dear, oh dear.
The adolescent name-calling and misdirection are predictable enough, but our favourite Team Ford spear-carrier seems to be especially, er, “confused” about freedom of speech.

@sueannlevy Free speech means you get to say whatever you want. It doesn’t mean no one gets to call you on your bullshit. Try again.
Once again, friends: freedom of speech means you can say whatever you like, but it doesn’t mean you get a free pass. And when other people call you on your bullshit or otherwise take issue with you, they’re not censoring you. They’re holding you to account for your words.
It’s called “responsibility.”
You can look it up.
