    Re: Militia group calls for Obama's assassination

    Is this case compareable to the case with the federal employee starting a race riot?

    You have the right to civil protest and in doing so the 1nd Amendment grants you the right to voice your opinion, concerns and yes, disagreements over policies or social conditions that affect you. But such assemble and freedom of speech DOES NOT give you the right to make death threats. This is, in part, why the FBI closely monitored Civil Rights groups and their leaders from MLK, Jr to Malcomb X the same as they monitored White Supremacy groups like the KKK, Skinheads or the American Communist Party from the '40s and '50s.

    Regardless of who does it for whatever reason, it's just plain wrong!

It's not the law, I get it, but as this is a debate board where we put forth our opinions; that is mine. It should be legal and it should be protected by the 1st. Government doesn't want it to be legal because it doesn't want anyone preaching against their power.
    I think it's more simplistic than that. If you've ever been part of a crowd that suddenly turned chaotic - frightened, ruckus, radical, angered - then you know that it doesn't take much to insight the crowd to violent. I see the same thing with communicating a threat especially against political officials. Yes, we live in a country where we can voice our opinions, but just because you have the right to say whatever you want doesn't mean you should say everything you want. There are limits; the classic example: you can't yell FIRE in a crowded room for the obvious reason - it insights fear which leads to panic.

    Exercise your right to voice your opinion on the issues that affect you, i.e., "I don't want my taxes raised, I don't want to be compelled to buy things I don't want, I don't believe in socialism, etc., etc., etc.," but communicating a death threat to the President or anyone else...IMHO that's where that line needs to be drawn.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

"Oh, it's my right to say I want to see him dead or I wish someone would kill him, but I never said I wanted to pull the trigger." Not only is it cowardous, it's wrong and wreckless. Why? Because you never know in whose head you plant such a seed to kill based on nothing else but their own hatred, prejudice, bigotry, political views or self-interest.

    Don't have to ban guns since guns were around before we had the problems we have today. It has to be something that didn't exist fifty years ago that exist today.

    Maybe it's liberal political correctness that's the problem ?
