May as well throw my $0.02 against the idiot above who tried to claim "free speech". The right to freedom of speech was originally placed in the bill of rights to protect political speech. The founding fathers wanted to ensure that those in power would not be able to target those who criticized policy, as was prevalent at the time (you complained about the king you ended up in prison). It had nothing to do you anyone's right to say whatever the hell crap they wanted, and it especially does not cover those who are inciting violence. It also does not mean that you are guarenteed to have an audience for whatever idiocy you want to spout off, conspiricy theorists complain about their "voice being supressed," when in reality it's more of a matter of people thinking they are crazy and ignoring them.
