44. I'd argue his speech rises to the level of muzzling

In Brandeburg v. Ohio SCOTUS laid out the current criteria for restriction of speech -

he constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press do not permit a State to forbid or proscribe advocacy of the use of force or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action.


Right or wrong, being hateful and insulting to Islam has been historically proven to produce imminent lawless action IMO. Sometimes ya gotta put the ideals in a box under the bed and be pragmatic..
