    It’s their way of minimizing the issue without talking about it (it hurts their feelings). You’d never tolerate a few “bad apple” airline pilots.

    It's strange that liberals call themselves "progressives" even though they don't believe in free speech (especially the big tech social media sites). There's nothing progressive about that.

    You realize you just completely contradicted yourself by talking about private companies right?

    And do you know what free speech is? I know dummies on the internet think it means "I can say whatever I want without consequence".

    It just protects people from the state impeding on their free speech. And even then it's not an absolute right.

    President Trump so far has...

    Tried to get courts to block 3 books from coming out about him.
    Threaten to sue Bill Maher for calling him an orangutan. (before he was president).
    Tried to ban tik tok.

    The problem isn't that "progressives are against free speech" the problem is Conservatives legitimately don't know what free speech is.

    "Liberal" and "progressive" are not synonyms. "Liberal" is a social platform, whereas "progressive" is an economic platform.

    And the weird thing is that many conservatives support a neoliberal economic platform.

    but defund the police is just a slogan and doesn't really mean defund the police at all?

    wrong.

    What does spending time in their area have to do with defunding the police?
    The issue has NEVER been that people want less security, that they don't want the police around....it's that they think there are better solutions than police officers for certain situations and when certain calls come in.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    less funding for police will result in less police. less police will have an impact on police being able to do their job.

    there may be situations where a police officer could become hostile and not deescalate like they should, which is why police need better training on how to better handle these situations, and that is harder with less funding.

    Michael Brown was not murdered. forensic evidence proved that he first attacked the officer still in his car.
