freedom of speech means that the government is not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up. it doesn’t mean that i am not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up.
No, freedom of speech means that the Govt. can tell you to shut the fuck up. It can’t imprison you or kill you in order to do so. Neither can anyone else. So speak, say whatever and you are protected from death or torture for speaking. Just remember: You can say what you want and so can anyone else (within reason). You aren’t protected from the consequences of your own idiocy.
