Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But the distinction you made was private property vs. public property, not violent disruption of legal assembly vs. nonviolent protest.

And if private property confers on you a blanket prerogative to selectively exclude dissenters from widely advertised gatherings or places of gathering which are open to the general public (except those parts you don't like), then you indeed have the ability to buy protection from dissent.

Or, in more practical terms, why is "no anti-war protesters in the [private] park" any different from "no black people in the [private] park?"
