JEANINE PIRRO (CO-HOST): Here's the bottom line. If you don't like what someone's saying, you don't have the right to tell them they can't close their mouth and they cannot speak. The United States Supreme Court in Brandenburg versus Ohio--I go to the highest court in the land--says no matter how repulsive the speech is, America was founded on the concept of free speech. Hate speech is protected. I'm tired of saying it.

These people like Elizabeth Warren who says it's wrong or offensive that one human being should decide. Well I don't like that Tim Cook is taking down the AirDrop for the protesters in China. That's one guy. You know, it goes on and on. That's not up to us. The thing that makes America different from every other country is that we have the right of freedom of speech which means we have freedom of thought. We are not a fascist nation. 

GERALDO RIVERA (CO-HOST): Are we free to say Jews will not replace us?

PIRRO: You're free to say whatever you want. I can slap you if I feel like it, but then I'll be prosecuted. Okay? Here's the bottom line. You don't like it, that doesn't mean the man or the woman is prevented from saying it. My god, how far have we gotten from the founding of this nation?
