This is what the right and those who rail against so called 'cancel culture' do - portray this debate as them being victimised by having their right to free speech deprived. Of course you are free to make your threads, and this is right and proper. You just have to accept that others are also free to criticise them.
Whether in this case its your intention or not, the fact remains, the furore over 'cancel culture' is just another manufactured outrage, to cynically deflect attention away from legitimate criticism of fundamental injustices.
You 're not making any sense. The Canadian-Jewish student got compensation from the SOAS London University because he was called a "zionist" by students during a debate about Israel-Palestine and because the University refused to remove the Student Union's endorsement of the BDS.
Sorry I may have misinterpreted the point of this anecdote - you are saying the student himself was engaging in cancel culture by acting all precious over being called a 'zionist' - and then forced the university to compensate him for it? I originally thought it was the other way around and you were criticising those who labelled him zionist.
