Uh huh. Or maybe they fostered a country where free speech is of paramount importance. And free speech does have its negative side too, as does systems of government that are anti-free speech. Unfortunately, it seems Liberals have to actually change America to be anti-free speech in order to find out what those negatives are. They love to spout all the good things about other countries but can't be bothered to look at the negative repercussions of the path they have put America on.
I mean, Dems want to be free to encourage and support looting, rioting and killing. But they don't want Cons to be free to do it. Picking and choosing the free speech you want others to follow only makes you a Dictator. Just saying.

See... this is the problem with conservatives... they don't actually understand the constitution at all. What about anything that is said here do YOU thinks violates the constitutionally protected right to free speech? Because, as far as I can tell, there is nothing here that is asking the GOVERNMENT to suppress this speech.
You are correct... the Republican Party has EVERY RIGHT to promote racism. They can even change their name to be the "Racism Party" if they want to. But, if they do not support those views (this is completely hypothetical, because it really looks like the Republican Party does support those views) then they have every right to speak out and condemn them. As well as the right to associate, or in this case not associate, with people who (again, hypothetically) do not conform to the values of their organization.
I did not see you get all whiny and judgmental when the Republican Party decided to kick out Liz Cheney for HER speech and association, but when SHE says that they should do that to racists, suddenly it is a big deal to you.
So, to recap... this does not violate ANYONE's right to free speech. And, even if you wanted to make an argument it did, it is very clear that you only care about preserving the "free speech" of racists and Trumpers. That when other people's free speech is violated, you stay quiet.
