All Americans have the right to free speech and expression no matter how offensive it may be.

Period. The La Comay boycott supporters must respect that.

I agree with you, partly.
No right is absolute, these have to be weighed one against the other (accordingly).
For example, in the UPR there's an institutional policy that nobody will be harassed due to its sexual orientation.
When my own supervisor harassed and encourage my co workers to harass me for my sexual orientation; they claimed "their right to free speech" (with the UPR's support).
I took the UPR to court and won.
Oh I agree, in your case you have the right to work in a safe and hostile free work environment.

That trumps the right to insult and harass others.

That is exactly what the stupid show does. The shows promotes racism, is anti gay and the lowest self respect ever. What right do we have over the lives of others??? I hate the stupid show!!! Thank God for cable tv!!!
