Ban Hate Marches and Assemblies

The first amendment is not absolute. It protects free speech, but that speech has limitations. The classical example is one cannot yell "fire" in a theater when there is none. Also, speech is not limited to the spoken word. It includes constructive speech as well and can include wearing an arm band to protest a policy. It also includes campaign contributions, as we learned from Citizens United. Other speech is also prohibited. Hate speech is precluded by federal statute.

Public assembly and marching by White Supremacists and Neo-Nazis can therefore be outlawed as violations of the statutes on Hate Speech, in my view. It is not a quantum leap for the law. Participants can take their displaced anger elsewhere. It is easy enough to arrest such participants. We should do it and charge them with actual and constructive hate speech.

The idea underlying such speech is why Trump’s comments on Charlottesville were so far off. He was condoning the hate speech by the Neo-Nazis, without realizing it, when he said, “Each side was equally at fault.” Like each side had a right to assemble and voice hate. Not so, as I explain.

This solution should be applied. We don’t have to put up with this.

About:
Kimball Corson: I am a 75 year old solo sailor, by choice. However, I did take on a personable, but high maintenance female kitten, now a full grown cat, named KiKiPoo when she is sweet, or KatKatPo after she has just killed something like a bird or bat. [...]
Extra:
Although I was a lawyer and practiced law with good success for thirty years, creating significant new law, I never really believed in the law, the politics of law or in the over reaching self-interest of most lawyers I met. Too much exposure to Nietzsche and other good and seriously thoughtful [...]
