Here’s a quick primer on Freedom of Speech:
1. You have, with some limits, the right to say what you want without government intervention, suppression, or prosecution.
2. That is different to intervention or suppression by an employer. Arguably an employer can, with some limits, interfere with free speech rights if the free speech destroys the ability of the employee to do their job.
3. You do not have the right to expect private businesses to give you a platform to say what you want.
