    Wrong.

    The Bill of Rights protects an individual from the Government blocking their right to speak.

    It does not guarantee that an individual has the right to say whatever they want, wherever they want.

    You have the right to assemble with others and say whatever you want. That does not mean you have the right to stand up in another lawful assembly and say whatever you want.

    You really do not understand this, do you?

    The first is the only amendment that starts with the qualifier of who can make no law. The rest are absolute.

    You're correct. You do not have to speak on my property or on my time.

    Therefore, I have the right to camp right outside of your house and shout for 12 hours a day on the glories of Zoro-Astroism. And any attempt you make to have me move is a violation of my right to free speech.

    Or if you do not like that, I will do so in front of your neighbor's house, who is also a believer in Zoro-Astroism.

    Stop oppressing me! You are letting everybody see the oppression inherent in the system!

    And yet you think freedom of speech is a crown of america. Did you do see the world from the safety of a guided bus tour?
