Actor Rob Schneider has often spoken out against the Liberal love of cancel culture. He recently took to Twitter to warn his followers about the serious implications of limiting free speech.
In a series of tweets, Schneider talked about how free speech applies to everyone and how you can’t just choose to support it for some but not for others.
Sorry to have to repeat this again:
Free Speech is ALL speech.
Even the speech that you find repugnant. 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.

Rob called out companies like Facebook, YouTube, Google and even Amazon. All of them are known for their tendency to limit the free speech of users, which typically involves targeting Conservatives.
Schneider, who is known more for his comedies than politics, made some excellent points in his critique.
In one of his tweets, he said:
“I know Free Speech and Democracy create a mess out of society, people being able to express and spew whatever they want. But I can’t think of a better one. And I surely don’t want to live in a society where people decide for me what to think or watch or how I should interpret it.”
“I worry more that the suppression of Free Speech will lead to more horrors than the continued free flow of ideas; good AND bad. People can decide for themselves what ideas belong in the dustbin of history.”
It’s refreshing to see a celebrity supporting our right to free speech and independent thought given the prevalence of censorship.
