‘You can’t say anything nowadays’ sighs man mistaking criticism for censorship


man claiming censorship

Some gonk is annoyed that he can’t be casually racist/sexist/homophobic anymore without someone disagreeing.

Simon Williams, 33, shared a fairly horrible photo on Facebook of some desperate asylum seekers, with the caption “piss off, we’re full”

“And now some people are saying that I’m mean,” said a flabberghasted Williams.

“It’s a disgrace is what it is. I have a right to say what I want, which I equate to having a right to be free from any form of disagreement whatsoever. That’s what freedom of speech means and that’s what my granddad died in three world wars for.”

Simon’s sister sighed, “Both of his granddads are still alive. He just never goes to see them.

“I’ve tried explaining to him that if he shares something that’s demonstrably mean-spirited on a public-facing platform, then it’s bound to attract a few dissenting voices.

“He can say whatever he likes, but the things he enjoys saying are all dreadful, so people usually don’t like them. It’s been really difficult trying to get him to understand that.”
