Election 2016, American Democracy at Risk; Technology Is Used to Drive Extreme

And, in doing so, they acted in a fundamentally undemocratic manner by preventing Trump from exercising his right to free speech (regardless of what one thinks of the content of that speech) as well as those of his audience who sought to exercise their right of free assembly.

Really? What exactly wasn’t Trump not allowed to say? I mean if he had been at the rally, wouldn’t his speach been very similar to what he said afterwords? Or would he had told his audience that violence was unacceptable?

As for his audience being denied the right of free assembly. It looked pretty free to me. Who exactly, other than Trump wasn’t allowed (or needed) to assemble, and wasn’t allowed to assemble?

There may have been many of his supporters who were not allowed to assemble and it may have been that Trump wasn’t allowed free speech, but I don’t believe these guys have made their case, if it took more than a community, instead of one guy, to write this article.
