"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

*this doesn't apply in a congressional hearing

It has always been subject to reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions. On the other hand, Joe Wilson was not arrested or prosecuted for what was clearly an intentional similar act so you have selective prosecution in this case.

Thought about Joe Wilson immediately on reading this article. His outburst was far more disruptive than this.
