So thats your justification for a violation of the Bill of Rights?


You can make a case that the proliferation of symbols and propaganda is not covered by freedom of speech

Brandenburg v. Ohio in 1969, limited the scope of banned speech to that which would be directed to and likely to incite imminent lawless action

Seeing as how the Confederacy was literal traitorship and sedition that led to the deaths of 600,000+ Americans, Its not hard to say that the flag could incite lawless action

Same as the Nazi flag


So that's your justification for censorship and infringing on rights. . . just to be clear.


Umm..

Its not a justification for infringing on rights at all.

Its a clarification of what our rights are and what they are not.


Liar.

You're for the supression of rights.

How authoritarian.

I really do enjoy this.

All I argue for is freedom, and those that disagree with me are arguing for authoritarianism and the suppression of rights and freedoms.

lolz

Surprisingly I’m against this.

Seeing a someone fly the flag of a bunch of losers is a pretty good indication of who they are personally.

I'm still amazed that people still don't understand what Libertarianism means.

"Ooo, you no like Cheeto Jesus, must mean you hate First Amendment too. Reeeeee!"

Everyone should be against this. Government should mind its own business and f*** off and die too.

Being for freedom, free expression is actually a really simple thing.

Remember the crap I got when I defended Kathy Griffin?

As an asshole myself, I support all assholes the freedom to be as assholey as they can be.

Like I've said, it's fun debating because I will always argue for more freedom and my opponent will be arguing for less.

You're special, aren't ya?

SCOTUS in 2011 ruled that Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist assholes couldn't be barred from speaking and demonstrating on public land, no matter how offensive, outrageous, or inflammatory their speeches were.

It's all good.

I know where the pig masks are buried. And they aren't in your backyard under that old cedar tree with the funny branch and the tire swing.

How are symbols not speech?


Because it’s not speech. Speech has a meaning and a definition.

Wow
Big smiles
Big smiles!

Um, you may want to go back to the 5th grade and relearn a few things. Any form of communication is classified as "Speech".

A picture is worth a thousand words, and that sort of thing.

Look at what the last ten years of social engineering has done to you.
