    Try that argument in court, counselor.

    Not surprisingly you show your usual ignorance. I suppose you've never heard of "incitement"?

    Anyway this isn't court, nitwit, but an internet forum. My statement was comparing RJHind's belief in holy war (for which he advocates immediate actions) with that of Islamic terrorists and finding them morally equivalent. Your red herring is irrelevant.

    A similar argument seems to have worked in court here:

    Rice v Paladin Enterprises considered the First Amendment arguments of a publisher of a how-to guide for hit men. Paladin's book, Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors, was concededly used by a reader as a guide for committing the brutal contract killing of three persons. A panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously in Rice that Brandenburg did not bar a jury from imposing civil liability on Paladin for aiding and abetting murder. The Fourth Circuit read Brandenburg not to require imminence for the type of speech involved in Rice. In 1998, the Supreme Court denied cert in Rice.

    Well, there is the difference that no one is ever going to take what R.J. says here seriously, especially in the light of his statement about them "being possessed by demons". I think it's difficult to construct a case for moral equivalence with functionally sane terrorists of someone who is stark staring mad.

    You want to be found to be morally equivalent to Islamic terrorists?

    No, because they are possessed by demons. 😏
