Could this be considered in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution?

Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to denote not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. Freedom of speech and freedom of expression is closely related to, yet distinct from, the concept of freedom of conscience and freedom of thought. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on "hate speech". This is because exercising freedom of speech always takes place within a context of competing values.

They wouldn't let me into the McCain rally with my Obama sign...Does that make McCain a 1st amendment hating Fascist?

What about that librarian that was ticketed by the police at a McCain rally, and threatened with arrest for carrying a sign?

This lady came to McCain's political rally looking for an argument. She got one, and bit off more than she could chew. Too bad for her.

Just so you're not further confused Jack--the question is, does KK consider this McCain rally incident as a violation of the First Amendment?

YES

I think it was a violation. Still, 2 wrongs do not make a right.
