Revenge pornography ban tramples free speech, law tossed out – where else but Texas!

So it would seem nearly everyone is against free speech. Let me ask a question. Did the Germans have free speech when Hitler came to power to enable them to speak out against the situation and what was happening? I think the answer to that would be no. Therefore free speech does have it's uses. There are also the scientists that questioned whether the earth was round (heresy they would say), no free speech and were all living on a flat earth. (Though we know it's not flat because if it was cats would have pushed everything off the side by now). Free speech just needs to be balanced and right but then who decides what is right?
