Anti-vaxxer Rob Schneider quotes George Washington after ads pulled
Schneider has followed that up with this quote attributed to George Washington:
"If the Freedom of Speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter," George Washington

If Schneider was referring to his constitutional right to freedom of speech being being taken away, he was offered some reminders about this particular situation:
@RobSchneider No one said there wouldn't be consequences for what you say though. Don't pretend that's part of the 1st amendment.

@RobSchneider "Freedom of Speech" is to prevent the government from arresting you, not protecting you from the consequences of your speech.

@RobSchneider State Farm has freedom of speech too. Do you not get that?

@RobSchneider Exactly how is your 1st Amendment rights being curtailed? You're obviously free to spout your ignorant views anytime you want.

@RobSchneider you have freedom of speech, and they have freedom to ignore you…

@RobSchneider You are free to say what you want. People are free to say what they want about your misinformed, ignorant opinions as well.

@robschneider freedom of speech means that the government won't penalize you for speaking – not that you aren't responsible for your words.
