Its not speech at all, its an emotional outburst of noise - to be
expected from children and frowned upon by adults.
You probably see no need for self-control at all, right? You would
have no problem with a crowd of people - including and especially just
a vocal minority of people in a crowd - heckling and yelling down
someone whom you disagree with politically? The likes of Ann Coulter
or Bill OReilly?
I guess the difference between me and you is that even if I disagree
with a position I'll listen to the argument with an open mind - who
knows, I might change my opinion. I would also prefer to leave the
area of someone with whom I disagree with or dislike rather than make
a scene, and thereby an ass of myself.
I've also taught my children to not point and the physically disabled
or mentally challenged and/or liberal... I hope that they will one day
turn out to be respectful adults with their own opinions and the
self-confidence to not have to blurt them out at every turn.
