Ultimately it boils down to the story.

Does the idiot in the mask have the right to wear a mask and hold fruit,(freedom of speech)?

Does the BLM have the right to punch him cause it hurt their sensibilities?

If the riot starts because of non violent activity from the ass hat in the mask, who started the riot?

If the BLM member riot, why is that a natural outcome to seeing a costume and fruit?


no, the idiot does not have the right to wear a mask and hold a piece of fruit in this situation, and NO the BLM protester does not have a right to punch the idiot.

the key thing about civil rights, it's the word "Civil" which makes it complete.

It's the noose that is the largest issue.

Ahhh, you finally said it.


He does in fact have the right. And when the courts get done, he will walk away a free boy. You are thinking what you don't like shouldn't be allowed, or outlawed. You are wrong, and you can't and won't see it.

I see 7 pages later and you still have not addressed my post.

If a person cannot dress up like an gorilla and act like a racist asshole how come the Klan still gets to play dress up in public and act like racist assholes?

I don't know if that is outlawed of not, if it is I can see the reason. Is it illegal to hold a banana in a noose while wearing a gorilla mask? Sounds silly.

What does public expression have to do with personal opinion?

In your statement I could go hand out jihadI pamphlets on campus


Public expression is usually a manifestation of personal opinion. I didn't think that part had to be explained.

Jihad pamphlets incite violence. They usually tell believers to go out and commit acts of violence. Therefore, jihad pamphlets would fall under threats of violence, conspiracy to commit terrorism, and inciting violence. It disturbs me, that I have to explain that too.

Why?

What about handing out jihad pamphlets?

How about targetting army recruitment centers and setting up fake soldier beheadings?

So there are limits?

What about fake beheadings of soldiers by non jihadis. Is that what freedom of speech is for?

Do you know what this guy said handing out nooses to black people?

I can tell you're not a lawyer, or if you are, not a very good one.




The First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects speech no matter how offensive its content. Speech codes adopted by government-financed state colleges and universities amount to government censorship, in violation of the Constitution. And the ACLU believes that all campuses should adhere to First Amendment principles because academic freedom is a bedrock of education in a free society.

If you wanted to dress up in a gorilla suit holding a banana to have a coffe at Starbucks then you are not breaking any laws. If you include the noose...well, that's up for debate.

However, if you do these things at a BLM rally...it is discrimination.

Do you understand now, it's the context as to why you did what you did that must be taken into consideration.

All of this will be hashed out in the courts.

Technically FAKE soldier beheadings (while vile) should be protected speech as long as it is proven that the actions are FAKE. As long as no direct threats are made, it is a legal expression of opinion.

Please don't use my own insults against me and please get out of the habit of cherry-picking legal jargon to prove a point.
