    The law cannot try to prevent people - in a traditional public forum, like a sidewalk, from saying things to you that you don't want to hear.  

    If you are somewhere like a public sidewalk, there's every possibility that someone else might say something that you find offensive, or insulting, or horrible.  Government cannot pass laws against that.  And you have no "right" to be "free" from someone else's offensive comments in those kinds of public areas.
