Yes, it’s ironic that the former CEO of Reddit would have a problem with advocates of freedom of speech, but she knows better. Ellen K. Pao knows that the “free-speechers” just want to be able to use racist slurs. That’s it.
At the end of the day, the free-speechers really just want to be able to use racist slurs. CW: racism, immaturity, stupidity, and even more racism and extreme stupidity pic.twitter.com/tn9RgJK4jZ

They really don't care about sharing new ideas or encouraging freedom other than the freedom to harass other people off the platform

I think it's a bit of an exaggeration — just a bit — to proclaim the only reason people believe in free speech is they want to spout adolescent racist slurs.
I believe that, historically speaking, this concept has a somewhat broader and more substantive history than this. https://t.co/mTuyEdyUDm

This woman is a bourgeoisie Silicon Valley elite, among the most privileged in the world. How does she use her privilege? She connives to exterminate the proles’ free speech by daring to claim she is oppressed by mean words on a screen. The level of deceit and malice is biblical. https://t.co/7sjg52TU8z

This is obviously fake, but even if it wasn’t, it shouldn’t be illegal. https://t.co/mCqShjKChm

There is no moderation policy that prevents anonymous trolls from sending racist emails. What free speech advocates want is for people to be able to espouse mainstream views without being censored by activists trying to enforce an artificial consensus. https://t.co/PS32x6PVCR

At the end of the day, the anti free-speechers really just want to be able to shut down people that disagree with them on anything and they will yell racism and anything else to do so. https://t.co/SefPNXDBxB

This woman @ekp is an elitist lunatic. There are no kind words for someone who is an advocate for authoritarian censorship of speech. Her pathetic assumption here reveals her lack of understanding both history and human nature. #censorship #IStandWithJKRowling https://t.co/9RhBEt2Ie5

I'm actually amazed you haven't deleted this tweet yet.
I'm almost impressed that you thought this would be a good idea to do. https://t.co/j4WqSxyoXq

If you want us to believe that you even believe that all people who love the First Amendment are interested in is the freedom to do this, I have insults I would love to lob at you too, but they'll be insults about your intelligence and your fascist tendencies. https://t.co/E1loxnvdLI

Imagine calling someone a 'free-speecher' and thinking you're winning. https://t.co/Z0aCmKpJSG

And now, notorious “right-winger” Elon Musk is going to ruin Twitter by putting the brakes on its ridiculous moderation.
Elon Musk takes poll on Twitter’s commitment to free speech, says ‘the consequences of this poll will be important’ https://t.co/fnbXshxzrK
