This should be a bigger story:

Ford has been “inundated with vulgar email and social media messages,” reports the Times, including death threats. Citing “a person close to” Ford who also wishes to remain anonymous, they report that the harassment has been so severe she has had to move herself and her children out of their home, and is arranging for “private security.”

Whenever someone is told they can’t wear blackface on Halloween, right-wing outlets bemoan “free speech rights.” Putting aside that that’s an incorrect application of the legal right to free speech, where are those so-called “free speech advocates” now?
