This is true for everyone; and certainly those of us whose speech falls outside of conventional norms.

Truth to power speakers are heavily censored and silenced…because power rarely, if ever, wants to hear truth…and only under very restrictive and confined conditions.

But there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this speech, in any of the ways you’ve described above. It’s not false. It’s not dangerous (well it can be to be those in power). It’s not hateful. And yet this kind of speech rarely gets to take center stage, despite it’s extraordinary value. The powerful will not allow it. Bernie Sanders is sort of a testament to that.
