Moldy, fuzzy candy though.

They have an idiosyncratic definition of 'free speech' which goes "I get to say anything I want, and you don't." It's a classic bully symptom.

Also, the idea that for them, "freedom of speech" also includes "freedom from consequences".

They think their free speech means everyone has to listen to it. In the USA, free speech means the government can't stop you, and that's about it. No one is required to broadcast it, as they're learning from the difficulty of getting a company to host The Daily Stormer web site.

My uber-fantasy counter-protest would be a drag queen parade with speakers playing "Why Can't We Be Friends", "We Are The World", etc. ESPECIALLY after the story of the drag queens in Australia beating up the guy bullying a young gay man. Synchronize the speakers, but be sure to obey the town's ordinances regarding sound levels.

Yes indeed. They're currently butt-hurt over the InfoWars guy who was called an idiot by a little girl. The freedom of speech they love is only for grown white males...

They can dish it out, but they're surprisingly bad at taking it.
