Publishing house cancels upcoming book by Hawley after Capitol siege

Publishing company Simon & Schuster said Thursday it has canceled an upcoming book from GOP Sen. Hawley, who has been widely condemned in the wake of the Capitol riots. The publisher cited ’disturbing, deadly insurrection’ as the reason. Hawley slammed Simon & Schuster’s move as ’a direct assault on the First Amendment.’

Hawley clearly fails to understand the nature of the first amendment. Having the right to free speech in no way obligates anyone to listen to you, promote you, provide you with a platform or take you seriously. The right to free speech has never meant and should never mean freedom from consequence.
