    under the 1st amendment.  Not what this or that ordinance has to say.

    The Supreme Court has said that speech is protected unless X,Y,Z.  Unless you claim a Facebook post isn't speech as defined by the 1st amendment then it is protected unless X,Y,Z, regardless of any particular ordinance.

    Except, of course, that the system is in the midst of shredding the 1st amendment, so we probably can't rely on previous Supreme Court rulings.
