Leeb said he was going to continue fighting so it won’t happen to others.

Even the KKK, as American citizens have the freedom of speech. The police gave them the protection to have their rally, defending their first amendment right. The KKK speaking on the subject of homosexuality can do so, even if the majority don’t agree with them.
