First Amendment does protect speech, but NOT
obscenity, child pornography, true threats, fighting words, incitement to imminent lawless action, criminal solicitation or defamation.
It is not infringed simply because people choose not to listen, or because non-speech-oriented government regulations prevent you from reaching
audience (e.g., your freedom of speech is not infringed if the government refuses to allow you on a military base to make your argument to a command officer).
Hate speech is protected but we can frame this within
the hostile work environment/sexual harassment that 2nd wave feminism fought so hard to protect against
Satirizing public figures [allowed] versus defamation [not allowed]
Milo Yiannopoulos ("cultural libertarian/advocate for total artistic & intellectual freedom and expression") banned from twitter.
What if our class was asked to draft a policy?
