The beautiful thing about the 1st amendment is that all speech is protected. Even the proverbial "yelling fire in a crowded theater". However the 1st amendment doesn't protect the speaker from the consequences of their speech. If you yell FIRE in a crowded theater and no one reacts then you won't be reprimanded. However if yelling FIRE causes a stampede which creates property damage and injury, then you will be jammed up.
