Always forget that free speech isn't a one-way street. You can say X, but others can say not-X in return. Our being able to 'talk back' drives these nazis insane. To them, they have the right to say anything, but the rest of us, especially the uppity women and minorities, have only two rights: To agree with them, or SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP 'cause white boy says so.

Furthermore, while speech may be free, it's not unlimited. Some things you can say aren't legal. Like violent threats. Like perjury. Or opening your face anus after a judge has told you to shut yer gob.

You'd think Americans would know how that works, given how many 'law & order' shows they watch on the telly, but, alas, that is not the case.
