Unless he lives under a rock, he knows exactly in which way he would be taken. This was not misinterpreted, there was no misunderstanding, and what was said was meant to be said. Now, ask yourself why?

One would think so. Particularly when he tried to say he was joking and then when you look at the joke he told, as Sphota said in a previous post here, it makes it even worse. The joke shows exactly what "emptying a clip" means. So he was aware. And then to turn around and use that phrase linked to immigration? Knowing full well how high tensions are, especially in border areas?

I think that revolution is a thing all of its own, beholden to no nation or individual political position. It is merely an inevitable consequence of the prolonged existance of an unacceptable level of disconnection between a people and thier parliament , or other seat of political leadership.
Wether it be the English Civil war, the French, the American... the differences between them are so slight and the similarities so plain.

You're right. There are Exceptions to Free Expression as determined by the Supreme Court in previous cases. They are:

Defamation
Causing Panic
Fighting words
Incitement to Crime
Sedition
Obscenity

The only possible exception this could fit under in the wildest of imaginations would be Incitement to Crime.

If you want the Dutch cartoonist to be "free" to draw pictures of Mohammad as an expression of the First Amendment, then you'd better think twice about calling this simple phrase uttered against a POLICY problem "incitement to crime".



There is a well-established legal definition of incitement to violence, and it involves three parts (1) that the person is directly being encouraged (or “incited”) to commit some act of violence, and (2) there is a clear and present danger that the person will commit the act, and (3) that the person does, in fact, commit the act.

There's no way that this Senator's speech even came close.


At no stage have I said he is guilty of anything other than stupidity. Now if you want the tax payer to fund people for being stupid then it's all good and we can all go back to sleep.

So people actually live under rocks?
Does one have to pick the rock up to find them?
How many people do you know the first names of who live under a rock?

Political correctness will be the down fall of us yet. This time, like many others, it has been taken too far.
So, he said "empty the clip" on illegal immigration. So What?
Common sence should tell you that what he is saying is that we should bring everything we have to get it under controll.
He is not telling people to go out and shoot illegals. Geez..............
