“If conservatives have had their content removed maybe they should look at the content of the content that they're posting,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said April 10th.

Free speech is essential to our democracy, political free speech especially so. The problem is most people aren't getting on a soap box in the town square to deliver their protected speech (and get honest immediate feedback from the real people around them). Most people these days are trying to communicate online in privately owned forums like Facebook or Punaweb, and there are no protections. If you want absolute free speech online you need to create your own website or host your own blog.

The rule today is the same as it has always been: "Speak twice before you think anything"

There is free speech.
There are also crazy people who might scream "fire" in a crowded Hilo movie theater, or in Malama Market while you're trying to buy some groceries.
When there is no fire.
Some statements are not true.
Some comments can incite fear and violence for no reason.
That's not free speech.

If anyone, conservative or liberal, has their content removed they might want to look at the content of their content.

That's true here too.

Assume the best and ask questions.
