Another Reminder about the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Another, apparently needed, reminder: the 1st amendment is about the government not being allowed to stop you from speaking your mind. You can’t be arrested for stating your opinions, no matter how terrible or controversial.

The 1st amendment DOES NOT protect you from the consequences of that speech with regard to your fellow citizens or the media, who have their own right to decry what you say, including calling you a bigot if they think you’re being a bigot.

You aren’t being censored illegally just because you don’t like that someone’s opinion of your speech is negative.

You’re just being censured, legally.
