US politics 

This is what dictatorship looks like.

A president gets fact checked, not even censored, and suddenly he threatens to destroy the company. And he calls it "freedom of speech."

@Elizafox The hypocrisy is so obvious -- how can people not see it?

"Conservatives" are supposedly agitating for "freedom of speech", and have always been big on "private property rights".

"Freedom of speech" means that the government can't stop you from saying things it doesn't like.

"Private property" means, among other things, that you can kick someone off your property if you don't like what they're saying to you.

...and yet here they are trying to use government to suppress the speech of a private entity when it tried to enforce its property rights.

How obviously wrong do they have to be before their last supporters defect?
