I never said trump inciting an insurrection was an attack on free speech. trump used his free speech just fine. I said Republicans failing to hold trump responsible for inciting an attack on our country shows they in no way "denounced" the riot. Had they taken the riot seriously, they would've punished the ringleader, as happens in any criminal case. trump repeatedly said he wanted to take away the American Free Press's rights to free speech. He called freedom of the press in America "Disgusting." He's the only American president to ever suggest curbing the First Amendment.
