Remember for one to be exercising free speech, the place where one is at should be a free speech place. I don't think that the US Open tennis court galleries is a free speech place so off this guy went.

The anthem, linked above, is illegal to sing in Germany (imagine something of historical value is outlawed lol). This is the first time I heard the song..doesn't sound outrageous....make way for the brown shirts ! Context...

Song sounds like "wear a mask" mantra now.

I would have sung "Baby Shark" myself.

Free speech does not extend to somebody else's soap box. Get your own.
