“They don’t want you to have free speech. so they invented the term ‘hate speech’ to shut you up”

"They don’t want you to have free speech. so they invented the term ‘hate speech’ to shut you up” is a saying that has been printed on an image. Barbed wire is shown over someone’s tongue, preventing speech.

The free speech meme has been posted on Twitter since at least January 2, 2019.
