so a snowflake has no right to SAY your speech is offensive and has no right to voice his opinion?

it sounds like you are the one limiting speech... criticism is speech. is there a law limiting your speech? will you be thrown in jail for speaking politically incorrectly?

the Berkley rights have nothing to do with pc. they didn't agree with the guys views and didn't want him to speak. both sides are guilty of building their own echo chambers. PC sensors certain specific offensive words, not ideas.

what exactly do racial slurs add to the conversation?

I agree, the riots should not have happened.

Where I disagree is that political correctness impedes on free speech. People can choose to be politically incorrect. It is not illegal. Therefore it does not impact freedom of speech, which protects from government actions.

you cant say certain things in case it offends people, and people now get offended by the truth, i should be aloud to say what i want but the tyrannical left hate that... One fine example of the Left trying to stop free speech is the riots at UC Berkeley over Gay jewish conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos was giving a lecture there. Often the right wing supporters look at things logically and tell the truth instead of caring about some silly snowflake's feelings and im in support of free speech... from both sides
