If there wasn't so much violence and mayhem associated with them I would be more inclined to agree with you.

They make the same claims about the groups they oppose (albeit with less veracity). A group shouldn't be outlawed for being associated with violence unless their expressed purpose is violence which, I grant you, may be true for some antifa or BLM groups. If we start outlawing their right to free speech then this can be used as justification for prohibiting your free speech as well. For that reason I think no one's free speech should be prohibited unless you're inciting violence, so that these disagreements can be decided through the public discourse.

I completely agree with you, but both of these groups have been inciting violence, that's my main point. The first thing that comes to mind about BLM is them inciting violence against police, and Antifa against supposed 'Nazis'. Neither of these groups seem to want to talk rationally through their 'problems', they just want to shout over everyone and ban anyone that doesn't agree with them from their events.
