And they are free to say what they want. That's fine and dandy.

They should not however, be free to be shielded from the reactions such vitriol will doubtlessly create.

Freedom of speech does not include freedom from responsibility for your own actions.

But I do find it ironic they claim such hateful thoughts about America that they do, and yet they are fine with hiding behind the freedom of speech thing while doing so.
