You are hearing a lot about “Silence is violence” from the left. Likewise, you hear from some on the same people for years that “speech is violence.”
What is actually left? You can’t speak and you can’t remain quiet. This is the goal: to be able to attack anyone at any time for anything that might expose their attempts to destroy freedom.
Speech is speech and if you don’t like it, change the channel. Only in a totalitarian society is silencing people encouraged. Whether it be fascist, socialist, communist or some other authoritarian/totalitarian society, it is evil and immoral to silence people.
