    Freedom of speech expression and rest of those rights given in the first amendment of the US bill of rights has limitations. For example, in one of bush's speeches a woman was kicked out for wearing a "get our troops out of iraq shirt. Furthermore, the right of assembly, also granted by the first amendment, also has limitations, such as the municipal governments approval. In Bibi's book on fighting terrorism, he cited an occurrence in the US where a mufti(or some other muslim religious figure) would tell his congergants that certain people should die and his congergents followed his wishes. Despite his claims that he was within his bounds of the first amendment, he was arrested for murder and attempted murder. The KKK, perhaps america's most promenent WASP terrorist group, is not allowed on most campuses, even though they are given (theoretically) freedom of assembly.
