The patriot Act and other federal and state laws prevent people from saying certain things. For example you can say "I hope all the illegals crossing the border die of thirst or break their legs jumping off the wall" but on the other hand It would be illegal to suggest that you and a bunch of your friends have been kidnapping illegals and torturing them. Just like it's illegal to yell "there's a fire" in a crowded theater when it'd not true, It's especially illegal to suggest violence towards children. What if you were telling the truth and the website was hosting your serial killer pedo poets. I host an online forum on another site, I have to remain vigilant against these type of things because we all know the government wants to shut down any and all critics. It's one thing to say "lol congress sucks, I just bought a wood chipper" vs "I want to murder congressman _____ kidnap his employees, chop em up snd feed the wood chipper". Advocating for genocide or riots or overthrow of the government through violent means is also prohibited. Unlike most people who reeee online about speech and such I've read the patriot Act and other federal laws regarding what is acceptable speech, so should you. Then you'll understand what we are facing.

you can yell fire in a crowded theater if

  • there's a fire

  • the theater is empty

  • no one reacts

when you cause a panic it's an act, not speech

If no one reacts it's still illegal, it's just no one called the cops. And yes if there is a fire, yell there's a fire unless your a sick fuck who's only into saving themselves and watching ppl burn
