Odious Speech Protected

[From article]
"If the First Amendment's free-speech clause protects anything, it protects the most hateful of speech. If it protects anyone, it protects the meanest and worst among us. And if there is one class of speech protected above all others, it is political speech.
[. . .]
On our campuses -- the least intellectually free precincts in America -- politically correct speech codes have sprung up, inhibiting students from even thinking, much less saying or writing, what's on their minds."

Odious but protected
Supremes stand by free speech
