They do in fact have the right to express their opinion in public, and it is not considered a risk to safety that they express their opinion such that their speech can be suppressed to prevent harm like a riot in a theater.

    You don't have to like that, but then you don't have to fucking like the laws of physics either. They're still the laws of physics and that is still the law of the U.S..

    This is in fact part of liberalism and not conservatism (though it is not a part of leftism, and one of the things which distinguishes liberalism from leftism). The ACLU for example agrees with the Court ruling and my view of it, and not yours. Your view is considered more on the authoritarian spectrum of political beliefs, and you would find more in common with hard right wingers who want to suppress speech (like suppressing sex and violence in video games and movies - for the protection of people) than you would with liberals.
    That's a lot of writing.

    That's a really bad analogy.

    Don't like the laws of physics? Fucking suffer cause you ain't changin them.

    Don't like the laws of the US? Lobby to change them, work within the political system to get elected and influence changing them, stage an armed revolution to overthrow the system and change them, etc.

    You labeled it wrong: "Liberal progressive Democrat brought US Flag to protest fascism and was attacked by terrorists".

    Reminds me of a guy who used to stand outside Daley Plaza with a placard for years. He clearly had some kind of grievance, apparently related to having split from his wife, and he used to update his placard from time to time s he found new people to blame; over the years he blamed Bush, Obama, Mayor Daley, a specific FBI agent, and a few others I'm probably forgetting. Never spoke, never made a scene, but I have to imagine he was utterly off his rocker. Haven't seen him in a couple of years.

    He occasionally would go on hunger strike, and list the days since he last ate. He never made it more than a couple before I guess breaking down and eating something.

    I agree Mistwell does sound like that with all those whataboutism posts.
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    In 1985, the USFL voted to move from a spring to a fall schedule in 1986 to compete directly with the NFL. This was done at the urging of New Jersey Generals majority owner Donald Trump and a handful of other owners as a way to force a merger between the leagues. As part of this strategy, the USFL filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the National Football League in 1986, and a jury ruled that the NFL had violated anti-monopoly laws. However, in a victory in name only, the USFL was awarded a judgment of just $1, which under anti-trust laws, was tripled to $3.[2] This court decision effectively ended the USFL's existence. The league never played the 1986 season, and by the time it folded, it had lost over US$163 million.
    Just in case anyone thought Donald Trump was taking a principled stand against the NFL...

    Then you must also believe that murdering a black man is the moral equivalent of punching a self admitted practicing Nazi.

    Beautiful False Equivalence. While they are not equal, both are miscarriages of justice. Also, there are no Nazis. A Nazi was someone who would shoot a baby in the head for being Jewish. Nazis murdered 6 million people. Nazis invaded other places to force their ideas on others. The pathetic racists we have in America are not Nazis and never have been. Dressing up funny, giving Nazi salutes and calling yourself a Nazi is not enough. Only morons who spit on the graves of 6 million dead call these guys Nazis and Trump, Hitler.

    Your entire statement about Nazis is a lie. There are Nazis all over America. They claim to be Nazis. They believe all non-Aryan people should be killed. They are Nazis no matter how much you deny the fact that they exist.

    So you're stupid enough to believe I'm an astronaut if I put on a space suit, call myself an astronaut, and fly in an airplane? The problem with your theory, dumb ass, is that they don't practice what they say they believe. A Nazi would. They can say that they think all non-Aryan people should be killed, but until they start killing them all they aren't Nazis.
