Freedom of Speech, as outlined in the First Amendment, prevents the gov't from silencing you. It does not guarantee that owners of private websites will not restrict what you can say.Fortunately I am not an American and so far I see only attempts to restrict my freedom of speech here, we'll see how far they will go..What exactly are you not allowed to say?in the US people can't speak freely, or they are canceled, they are thrown out of their jobs, their social nets accounts banned and so on.You mean the republicans are stopping to cancel people, I doubt it.as mass censorship purges Trump supporters from social nets, with social nets oligarkhs banning some news and promoting news they favour, with US cracking down on freedom of speech in other countries - have USA and USSR traded places?
Washington joins crusade against free speech, backs Ukrainian crackdown on opposition media as EU & Zelensky’s dad voice concernsThe US has waded into a row over media censorship in Ukraine, backing a ban on opposition TV channels as both the EU and President Volodymyr Zelensky’s own father expressed grave concerns over the impact on free speech.www.rt.com
How has the USA squash free speech??
the fact that polls predict one figure of votes for Trump and in reality millions more vote for Trump demonstrates nothing but that people FEAR to speak
As was said numerous times when the athletes were kneeling at games, "The 1st amendment protects your right to free speech. It does not protect you from the consequences of what you say".
as for freedom of speech for Americans - weren't numerous posts deleted, people fired from jobs, people led to suicide etc.
and obviously it's demagogy to state that you have full free of speech even if you get killed as a consequence of it
And the people who lost their jobs did not have their speech censored. But the employers are allowed to fire someone based on radical views or for bringing bad publicity to the company thereby jeopardizing the entire company.
FYI, if you commit suicide because people didn't like what you said, that isn't getting killed over free speech. That is being a coward for not standing up for what you believe.
