Mon, 19:08: Freedom of speech doesn't mean you can't be called out on your shit. It just means that I can't forcibly... http://t.co/L46srQoM

Doesn't even mean that. It means that the *government* can't forcibly silence you *based on content*.

As a private citizen, I *can* forcibly silence you if you are on my property. And I can refuse to provide a "platform" for you to speak (Freedom of the press includes the right to tell someone I won't let you use my paper/station/website/whatever to put forth your views)

And the government can enact restrictions based on things like place, time and manner of speech.

That's how stuff like "disturbing the peace" and various noise & advertising restrictions work.
