Okay, tonight in Chicago, a Donald Trump rally was cancelled due to the unrest in the arena. As much as I dislike Donald Trump and even think he is a fascist, I say to the protesters that Donald Trump also has First Amendment rights. He should be allowed to spew his hate speech. Now, don't get me wrong. I support the right to protest. But not at the cost of silencing another's voice. So, protest. But do it outside of the venue.
We live in a democracy where we value the marketplace of ideas. An angry mob should not be allowed to shut down speech. The First Amendment was designed to protect unpopular speech. That's so ideas can be heard and compete. That's how change happens. An unpopular speech with the government may be the right approach to change. It should not be censored.
