There are limits to hate speech -- such as speech that is "inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action," ruled the Supreme Court in Brandenburg vs. Ohio.

The Berkeley Patriot event does just that. "We know that his [Milo Yiannopoulos] presence is going to likely create a confrontation," says Mayor Jesse Arreguin. Conservative provocateurs "bear responsibility for inciting a violent environment." 

"So let's stop the pretending that this is about free speech," concludes East Bay columnist Otis R. Taylor Jr. "Because what we're looking at is an invitation to violence."
