    On 'safety concerns,' see
    FORSYTH COUNTY v. NATIONALIST MOVEMENT, 505 U.S. 123 (1992)

    JUSTICE BLACKMUN delivered the opinion of the Court.

    In this case, with its emotional overtones, we must decide whether the free speech guarantees of the First and Fourteenth Amendments are violated by an assembly and parade ordinance that permits a government administrator to vary the fee for assembling or parading to reflect the estimated cost of maintaining public order.

    Abstract calls to arms, display of racist materials, and "open season" signs are 1st Amendment protected. See Brandenburg v Ohio 395 U.S. 444 (1969)

    Freedoms of speech and press do not permit a State to forbid advocacy of the use of force or of law violation except where such advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action.

    Michael Steele is not as dumb as you, if you're still clinging to the dumb war in Afghanistan.
