    Because of a strong foundation that still holds true today, you have the right to meaningful Hate Speech, as long as it does not incite direct violence; This right is protected by the 1st and 14th Amendments, and has since been made stronger due to Supreme Court Precedents.

Falwell, (1988), the US Supreme Court held, in a unanimous 8-0 decision, that the 1st Amendment's free-speech guarantee prohibits awarding damages to public figures to compensate for emotional distress intentionally inflictedupon them. Thus, Hustler magazine's parody of Jerry Falwell was deemed to be within the law, because the Court found that reasonable people would not have interpreted the parody to contain factual claims, leading to a reversal of the jury verdict in favor of Falwell, who had previously been awarded $200,000 in damages by a lower cou {http://lh3.ggpht.com/_r4RxAPvEduQ/TLC7P6ST3jI/AAAAAAAAKeg/Tja05E5_bL4/westboro3.jpg} --------------------------> This cartoon pokes fun at the combination of both cases and their similarities.
