57. Ah so now the argument is verbal violence.
OK, you might have a case there. If one can establish in a constitutional fashion what exactly 'verbal violence' is, then perhaps all verbal violence can be banned. Of course I really don't think that carrying that out to its logical conclusions and applying such a free speech restriction to all protests is exactly what you had in mind, but I could be wrong.

I am of course dead set against a prohibition on something as ambiguous as 'verbal violence'. Some folks would probably consider 'Out of Iraq Now' verbal violence.
