One of Hollywood's Most Underrated Comedic Actors Reminds Us: Suppressing Free Speech is 'a Load of Totalitarian Crap'

 

 

What’s not to love about Rob Schneider? He’s funny, seems down to earth, and he understands the value of free speech.

That, of course, means ACTUAL FREE speech, not what this guy — who’s in college — thinks it means:

In case you don’t wanna watch the whole thing, here’s the operative quote: “You know what’s…against the law? Hate speech.”

Rob knows better than that, hence his Friday tweet championing the First Amendment:

“Sorry to have to repeat this again: Free Speech is ALL speech. Even the speech that you find repugnant. You are either for ALL of it or…you are for none of it. We don’t need people deciding FOR us what to think, see or hear. That’s a load of totalitarian crap”

Rob, as it turns out, is leery of vaccines.

See for yourself:

He makes a good point about Democrats:

He prefers to be au naturel:

And he wants to be able to say what he thinks:

Amazon pulling books that espouse his point of view? He’s not a fan:

Whatever your thoughts on the issue of vaccinations, I believe he’s right about free speech and — not only its place in the Constitution, but — its importance in our society.

Free speech — in whatever room you’re in — encourages us to listen.

How else do we grow?

Here’s more from Rob:

He’s right.

It’s great to see someone in Hollywood wanting the channels of discussion to open rather than strangle those of particular views.

I’m grateful for Rob’s place in the entertainment industry. In addition to his championing of free expression, his comedy is silly and lacking in mean-spiritedness.

And honestly, the guy’s surprised me at times with his acting. If you haven’t checked it out, enjoy his remarkable turn in the fantastic Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore film 50 First Dates.

I’ll leave you with a few more bits of greatness from Rob:
