    want to silence their means of expressing that with which you disagree. should not happen. free speech should not be squelched. no matter how reprehensible the matter they choose to express
    How are they silencing the KKK? It isn't as if they can't just create another Twitter account.

    but their established recognized KKK is no longer theirs
    their brand was co-opted

    Apparently a lot don't, see post on here all the time suggesting the limiting of free speech, not to mention other "rights".

    True, it's not a secret, if it was and accidentally leaked, the the left might actually know it.

    Uh, where did posts come into it at?

    As long as it is not in a violent manor, everyone is allowed to express their opinions, whether others approve or not. Violence is also allowed, if you win the war.
