I remember reading something--so what I read could've been wrong, or what I remember about what I've read could be wrong--anyway, I think I remember reading somewhere that it is a punishable offense to talk/joke/etc about "killing" or threatening a presidential candidate (or could it have been about the sitting president in an election year?) So wouldn't inciting violence fall in the same category? Provoking a "hate crime" would also make one an accomplice to any act of violence resulting from such instigation. Truly despicable behavior--one really has to wonder about the "religious" right. Whose religion is it, anyway, when they provoke hatred and fear?
Let's hope this Halloween will be the last time we have to put up with these scary people having much power.
