Shout Out to Everyone Who's Supported Free Speech During #VoxAdpocalypse
Guys, it's been a week. Thank you to everyone who's supported free speech during the #VoxAdpocalypse. This list isn't exhaustive by any means, but know that even if I didn't include you in this roundup, your support is still felt, appreciated, and we're all grateful to have it. Without further ado and in no particular order:
TUMBLER MERCHANT BEN SHAPIRO
Dang, Ben. Your fighting support has been massive. We feel so much love coming from your general direction, we're almost willing to forgive that your drinking vessel is rumored to be recycled from public toilets. Almost.

To you, Shapiro:
SENATOR TED CRUZ
We always knew we like the Zodiac Killer. The Texas Senator has been a long advocate for free speech and we love him all the more for it. Even if he doesn't have the best beard ever. It's okay, we can't all be great at everything.

Thank you, Senator. Next round's on me.
CHAD FELIX GREENE

Rock on, sir.
There have also been countless journalists like Brandon Morse, Stephen Miller, Jim Treacher, and more that I just cannot keep track of, who've been wonderful advocates of free speech during the Adpocalypse. We need more people to stand up to media fascists, so your voices matter.
Thank you to everyone I missed, everyone I forgot, everyone who stood up for freedom. The battle is not over yet!
