Allow me to amend my post. With a tiny alteration, it still applies perfectly well.

What you're saying basically boils down to "They have no freedom of speech because I say so." Or, more succinctly, "Nuh uh!" It's not an argument, it's just a statement of opinion over and over again. You're entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts, and the facts are against you here. I humbly suggest you learn to live with that.
