The Gab business is bad, but it's not a free speech issue in the same sense that legal penalties for dissing Islam are a free speech issue. The difference in magnitude is a difference in kind.
Meanwhile, I can be a anti-Muslim or anti-Jewish as I want in public or in some part of the internet that will put up with it (of which there are no shortage).
No one has a "right" to potentially a million viewers.
Gab has a "restraint of trade" case but not a First Amendment one.
Pre-internet case in point:
New York Jewish Week (a newspaper) had a policy of no ads promoting non-Jewish religions (primarily aimed at "Jews for Jesus").
Is that a freedom of the press issue?
