We all value freedom of speech. I think we all recognize the importance of having freedom of speech.

Therefore, we, as a society, should make the practice of speaking out against free speech illegal in order to protect free speech.

Well, I'm sure Michael Grunwald of Time Magazine would agree with me as he understands that the only way to protect freedom is for the state to take it away and put it in a lockbox where nobody else can have it.

If espousing the ideals of an immoral practice constitutes speech not entitled, then freedom of speech is a useless notion that only protects speech that doesn't need protecting.

If freedom of speech can operate only insofar as the society deems what is said to be acceptable, freedom of speech would be redundant and unnecessary.

If it was illegal to advocate limiting speech, you would go to jail for advocating making it illegal to adovate limiting speech.

This would violate the 1st amendment

So the only way to protect the freedom of speech is to limit freedom of speech?

I hate it when people claim that without justifying it.
