    by making the 1st amendment part of the constitution. You can no more declare an idea unfit for society than you can declare a religion unfit for society.

    •  Sure, we decided to make slavery legal (0+ / 0-)

      and then we decided to make it illegal.

      We're free as a society to change our minds and rework what the framers did at any time we choose.

      It's not about declaring ideas unfit, it's about outlawing particular groups like the nazis and banning certain types of hate speech on television and radio just like we do with curse words.

      It's pretty ridiculous to propose that we can ban the word fuck on TV but can't ban Beck from his mastabatory white supremacist eliminationist fantasies on TV. If we decided to as a society, we certainly could.
