Should I just repeat the same thing I said before? Because you keep bringing up the First Amendment and its guarantee of freedom of speech, and again neither has anything to do with what you just said. You just spewed out buzzwords that have nothing to do with the First Amendment. Just your opinions on what is moral to say or not to say, and I don't really care at all.

You then suggested that the government should regulate private enterprises and define what view points they can choose to platform or not platform. THAT is in violation of the First Amendment. If people don't like the restrictions these platforms place, they are free to go somewhere else. If it is not viable for any competing platform to emerge, then that's an anti-trust issue, wholly separate from the First Amendment.

And, no you can't speak for everyone on the right. Ffs.

"If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!"

Let us assume for a second that Donald Trump is not the President, since that actually DOES create pretty severe First Amendment concerns. But lets say he's a private citizen who objects to players kneeling for the pledge of allegiance. Why is it wrong for him call for those players to be fired or suspended?

You say "Attacking another thing does not make your thing better. If one food will kill you, and the other will make you go blind, you don't eat either." but continue to bring up Trump as if that invalidates his points ... weak sauce Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

He brought up the issue of demanding people be fired.

I gave an example of that exact kind of behavior, and asked why it is objectionable to him. 

In no way did I imply that Trump's actions made any other action better or worse, or that he should support any other person due to Trump's actions. I did not compare his actions to any other person's. I did not attack Trump whatsoever. I specifically said that I support Trump's right, if acting as a private citizen, to call for the cancellation of anything he pleases.

This is a failure of comprehension on your part. Do not call me a hypocrite.
