    Well, I think the first step in defending "freedom of speech" is actually understanding the concept.
    PayPal shutting down accounts, is not a free speech issue, that IS free speech on the part of PayPal.
    It's also freedom of association, property rights and many other individual rights.

    Well PayPal closed down 3 on the left and two on the right.

    I bet they never imagined closing ONLY the left. IT is typical how the left terrorist protest.

    That is why I am of the conviction that defending freedom of speech for the terrorists on the left is useless. The more you "turn the other cheek" the more emboldened they become, going as far as threatening the FOX anchor's home and family like the KKK has done in the old days.
