    What the fuck does "free speech" have to do with this?

    Nothing.

    Most conservatives are either ignorant of the fact that the First Amendment applies only to law-making entities and not private organizations or individuals, or aware of this they nonetheless attempt to create the illusion of some sort of ‘free speech violation.’

    If I have to explain why they were both wrong I am pretty sure it won't help.

    Is it legal to deface private property because you do not like the speech that the property displays?

    Although, I am annoyed by the fact that the spraypainting woman got arrested, but the camerawomen that assaulted her did not.

    It is against the law to deface a sign.
    She can just as easily get her own sign to put up.
    Why would she be supporting a group violent people, who wants to kill all Jews and Christian's and anyone who will not conform to Islam?

    Keeping the other woman away from her with the end of her camera pole is not assault.
    Neither woman committed an assault.
    The one who got arrested was breaking the law of defacing a sign.

    Except that the other woman didn't touch her, so yeah, jabbing her with the camera pole is assault. As was when she shoved her.
