Comedian Rob Schneider Strongly Backs Free Speech
Article from The Daily Wire by Paul Bois.
“Saturday Night Live” alumnus Rob Schneider issued another blistering takedown of anti-free speech “totalitarians” on his Twitter over the weekend, blasting Big Tech for censoring content.
“Sorry to have to repeat this again: Free Speech is ALL speech. Even the speech that you find repugnant,” Schneider tweeted. “You are either for ALL of it or … you are for none of it. We don’t need people deciding FOR us what to think, see or hear. That’s a load of totalitarian crap.”
Schneider took particular issue with banning books that “question medical orthodoxy,” which stands in line with his viewpoints critical of vaccinations.
