“I know hate speech is protected by the First Amendment.
But there are exceptions to protected speech — such as speech that is “inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action,” as the Court ruled in 1969 in the landmark free speech case Brandenburg vs. Ohio.
The question is: Does speech delivered by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and other provocateurs incite violence?
Yes, it does.
Is that speech likely to produce lawless action?
Yes, it is.
So let’s stop the pretending that this is about free speech.”
Indeed, let’s stop pretending…this is all about Leftists starting a riot and trashing Berkeley, again.
