That's incorrect.  Free speech is seen as a right because good ideas need to be heard.

 
There are lots of things I don't like to hear but I don't question free speech because of those.

Bad ideas too. The merits of an idea are subjective. But free speech is a right simply because for it not to be would be wrong. That's all.
