It wouldn't matter if he was a **** advocating for female circumcision of all 8 year olds. He shouldn't be fined for saying exactly the same thing as someone else who is not. The rules must be consistent.
Yes, actually it would. I understand your point and you're using an extreme example to make it.
I don't care for Howard Stern. I do at times listen to his show but I'm not a fan. I'm not offended by his show because the things he does and talks about are things present in everyday life. Either in peoples thoughts, words or actions.
However I'm completely against ANY and ALL censoring of free speech provided it's not generating fear, harm or hate. If you yell "Fire!" in a crowded movie theater you should be sent to jail. If you and a friend are walking down the street and see a police office and say "pig" you should be allowed to keep on walking. To speak about the president and the administration is a right granted by the first amendment. There is no freedom of expression by the way. The first amendment allows for the free expression of religeon, speech and a few others.
If the KKK wants to walk down the street holding a rally then they should be allowed to and should be protected from harm. The same as if the NAACP wants to hold a rally. Or any other group. But if during the rally they start shouting "Kill the **** then the rally should be ended by law enforcement and the people who made those comments should be arrested for threatening to commit a crime.
Just My opinion anyway.
As long as you're not promoting a concept or idea in nature that prohibits others from their rights to freedom then there should be no law or rule barring free speech.
In the immortal words of Sidney Poitier:
"It is your duty to change the world, if you can."
