The one thing that is supposed to unite us as goats is support for free speech.

Yeah, and it has limits. No rational person disputes that. Slandering other individuals by name without grounds is not free speech, it's a criminal act. Yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theater is a criminal act. Making and spreading pornography needs to be recognized as a criminal act, because porn is poison. It destroys the good health of a society. It is in large measure responsible for the low birthrates of whites. It's a kind of addictive drug for the mind, and it needs to be outlawed.

This is basically a mirror of the arguments in support of banning "hate speech".

"Oy vey it hurts society to say bad things about those nice colored folks, no you can't say that anymore".

Not to mention that the "it's illegal (even though it actually is not) so it must be bad" argument has no logical basis, legality = morality is the biggest crock of shit I've ever heard. California has extreme restrictions on firearms but you wouldn't say that that means owning a high capacity magazine would be immoral would you?

if a court can prove that you incite imminent lawlessness by falsely shouting "fire" in a crowded theater, it can convict you.
