1st Amendment Rights

Freedom of speech does not mean one's speech is free from criticism or consequences.

Criticism: Not on the basis of one's right so say what they wish but on the basis that what was said can be countered or proven false with logic and reason.

Consequences: When a company or organization supports a candidate or legislation, they run the risk of gaining or losing customers who can exercise their rights as consumers to support or boycott them for their public positions.

For those who then cry foul for either of these two reasons, I mockingly laugh at your perceived suffering.
