In the United States, from a Constitutional standpoint, people are free to have and express a lot of ideas. That doesn’t however mean that all ideas are good ones, or that bad ones should go unchallenged.
Just b/c someone is free to HAVE and express a bad idea, doesn’t mean others are under any obligation to embrace it. I for one will always take stands where I need to take them, unapologetically. If something is wrong and/or insane, I will call it out as such.
I absolutely will not pander to it.
