Richard Stengel, a member of Joe Biden’s transition team, has some interesting thoughts on free speech. In an op-ed, he wrote, “All speech is not equal. And where truth cannot drive out lies, we must add new guardrails. I’m all for protecting ‘thought that we hate,’ but not speech that incites hate.”
That’s not how free speech works. If these are the kinds of people that the Biden team wants to move forward with, then Tony Katz has a few thoughts for them.
