You don't have a clue what you're talking about. Only the state can violate someone's 1st amendment rights. The 1st amendment says: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;" has anyone suggested that there should be legislation passed banning this Mosque from being built? Not to my knowledge.What is the stated goal of the protest if not to prevent it from being built? If that's the case, then you're violating their 1st Amendment rights. Period. End of story.
What you are suggesting is that our 1st amendment rights should be violated IE the rights of free association, freedom of assembly, and freedom of speech.
By your logic someone protesting the Nazi party is trying to violate the Nazi parties right to free association.
lol yep Ghandi engaging in non-violent protest against the British were attempting to violate the rights and freedoms of the British colonialists. I guess Dr. MLK jr. was using the bus boycot to attempt to violate the rights and freedoms of the bus owners. We are not in any way trying to ban their religion, or ban the practice of their religion, or ban them from owning property. What we are doing is using our rights of freedom of speech, assembly, and association to protest how they are exercising those rights and encouraging others not to enter into voluntary contracts with them in order to build that Mosque.If you desire it not to be built despite it being utterly legal - then you are attempting to violate someone's rights and freedoms. Simple. Not hard to understand.
Once again only the state can violate peoples first amendment rights. Simply protesting does not violate anyones rights, now if the KKK were to say use violence and threats in order to drive those black people out of town then you would have a point but so long as they are only engaged in non-violent protest then they are not violating anyones rights.If the goal is just to shriek about how wrong you think it is, then you're well within your rights. Trying to drive someone out of the neighborhood because you don't like them is a violation of their rights. This is no different that the legal protests of the KKK. It's within their rights to march. But if it's their goal to drive black people out of town, then they're violating people's rights. If the goal is try to prevent a synagogue, from being built, then it's a violation of people's rights. If the goal is to make noise and be obnoxious, then it's perfectly legal.
The goal is to stop this Mosque from being built. By your logic non-violently protesting the construction of a KKK meeting hall is a violation of the KKK's right of free assembly and association.From what I see, I don't think the goal is just to make a lot of noise.
