But no matter how the point is phrased,
its unmistakable thrust is this: The Government has an
interest in preventing speech expressing ideas that offend.
And, as we have explained, that idea strikes at the heart
of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the

any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast
of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the
freedom to express “the thought that we hate.” United

Of course the Snowflakes and Lords of The Flies will continue their chant and do whatever they can to suppress Free Speech. Unfortunately they never had (and now even less) a legal floor to stand on.
Now, if we could only get the FBI to start getting on these assholes for violation of Civil rights instead of wasting time to see if some Russian spammer sent a trojan horse to some idjit in the Clinton campaign…
