I support free speech even defamation and lies. Why? Well who is to define it? I think all free people need to accept peoples right to say what they want to. I also think it is their responsibility to question what is said. Anyone can say anything. The truth is another matter. The source should also be considered. When free speech is used as a weapon against those people we don’t like it is wrong. Speaking out against someone in a provocative, defamatory way is also wrong.
Intelligent people use this right to portray truth. The others just use it to spew nonsense.
