The feds could have actually put a stop to it. Shneck v US states that The Government can censor free speech if there is a clear and present danger to letting it be heard.

Only during time of war. War has not been declared by Congress.

The First Amendment still stands.

Now, what is illegal and actionable is fomenting a riot or insurrection. That can be dealt with under the law. But expressing an opinion or a judgement is not actionable at this time. Everyone is still entitled to his opinion and anyone can express his opinion in a peaceful orderly way. That is the entire point of our First Amendment.
