    Candance Owens posted following tweet:

    It didn't take long for twitter to correct her:

    The irony, she practices "hate speech". But the NYT reporter is for sure a "hero" who not only doesn't get suspended, but is hired!

    Turns out, it matters quite a bit which group the hate speech is directed to.

    Yep. That's the point we here in favor of free speech have been making: there's a double standard to what is considered "hate speech."

    Candice Owens, now Alex jones, who's next? Rush Limbaugh? Anyone and everyone who disagrees with left media?

    And yet the left will spew garbage from their lips and say the Right is oppressing THEM!

    Gun confiscations begin in Florida......

    We're rapidly approaching the point none thought possible.

    Are you saying that Trump drones are the only ones who are interested in preserving free speech?

    So you admit you are ok with the double standard as long as it favors YOUR POV?
