Why are obscene and hate speech are regulated then? "no abridgement of free speech" yet these are regulated. No one can answer this and keep using the absurd arguement you are using. Obviously the amendment is not absolute yet you keep portraying it to be. Utterly ridiculous.

You have the absolute right to freedom of speech.

That right does not absolve you for responsibility that flows from your speech.

You are confusing prior restraint with punishment (after the fact) for unlawful conduct.

It is not illegal for me to say "I hate <the N-word>."

If I do so while beating a black man I am subject to an enhanced penalty for my conduct.

I can speak it all I want, but that does not absolve me of the responsibility for my words.
