Anyone who is not among the super-rich but supports Citizens United.
I think that was one of the worst decisions ever.
I already started a thread about how stupid this is, I guess you missed it. To some it up, only totalitarians, or people who think totalitarians have a point, ever support laws to restrict anyone's freedom, because it always comes back to bite them in the ass.
I'm not really all that concerned about their safety. They have the right to express their opnions no matter what that opinion might be. I expect the SC will overturn it and they should.
When it comes to speech, there is not a limit to what someone should be able to get away with.
Actually, no one does. I mean, about 99% of speech is fine and covered under the First Amendment, but there have been many cases throughout our country's history of the First Amendment being abridged or restricted. Someone already mentioned "Fire" in the crowded theater, for example.
sure there is, yell fire in a theatre when there is no fire and see where that gets you
oops sorry for mentioning it again....
They upheld hate speech laws, why would they care about stopping another restriction on free speech?
What "hate speech laws"?
And if their opinions concern the displaying of the sexual act to minors?
And to express this opinion, they place a massive explicit billboard covered with images of a "donkey show" next to an elementary school playground?
