Free speech. You can't ban ideas you don't like, you need to combat them with better ideas.

It's just like with antivaxxers. The answer to bad speech is more speech. Debunking works. Arresting them for expressing opinions just makes them look good, because states tend to arrest people for opposing bullshit. Lots of countries arrest you for questioning the existence of Allah, none of them will arrest you for saying 1+1 = 3.

Exactly.

We can combat them with ideas like BMI tests for politicians. Stop electing fatasses, we stop getting laws supporting fatasses, and maybe start making policies to combat the butter.

Too many fat people in the electorate. Hopefully they hate their fatness enough to stop electing fat asses. I doubt this, because congress right now has a major obesity problem, apparently.

This works in public arenas more generally, but school students are not yet fully equipped to evaluate competing ideas. They are therefore vulnerable to indoctrination and may require additional protection.

We need more shitlords to help stomp out the disease that FA is. Keep it up people. Every look of disgust helps.
