you know, if these guys weren't PHYSICALLY positioning themselves to force people to hear their speech, i might even be able to frame Westboro the way you tried to. But when push comes to shove, i can firmly say i dont think westboro has anything to with "free speech". It has to do with psychic assault, an offense that must be associated with some physical attempt to force people to listen to their free speech that this crosses the line on. If nothing else they should all be sued into the ground for cruelty and assault, if i was meteing out justice.
It's clear that their ability to talk is NOT what's at issue here, it's where they are! Lets not get in the weeds about "speech", when its unusual cruelty arising from a specific targeting, such as people at a funeral. If they were in a field somewhere, this wouldn't matter!
