I mean, seriously. Is the proposition now that, to support free speech, you have to stay on a panel or event with someone whose views you despise, despite feeling that your presence gives them legitimacy and cover? That you can't say "no thanks, I'm out?"
I mean, why does so much "support free speech" rhetoric now seem to boil down to "shut up, abandon your freedom of association, abandon your freedom of conscience, and pretend awful people aren't awful, for the discourse"?
Maybe one way to look at it is this: (1) you're mad at reactions to speech for falling short of your stated values. (2) Are you imposing the same value judgments on the initial speech drawing the reaction? (3) Why the fuck not?
