If Money Isn’t ‘Speech’ Then Boycotts Should Not Work

by Steve MacDonald December 7, 2016

In the midst of a hookah induced haze (minus the hookah and the haze), something occurred to me. Out of the blue, if you like.

Thumbnail image for Trump Speech

You’ve probably heard about it. Donald Trump gave a prepared speech that tore into Hillary Clinton in ways that had Senate Republicans scrambling for their communications directors. What do we say?

There’s nothing surprising about a liberal media platform like Facebook censoring content it opposes. Heck, there’s nothing wrong with Facebook censoring content of any kind, for any reason.

From the Harvard Law Record, Usually, we at Harvard are more than happy to see Yale students make fools of themselves on camera.
