Actually, saying the president, or anyone, should die is not a gray area. its protected.
Now, saying your going to go kill...that moves it from speech and opinion, to threat of plot.
I can say I hope soandso gets cancer, that a bunch of people go kill him, etc etc etc...and beyond being considered a complete ass from coast to
coast, I would be fine in doing so...the second I start plotting or instructing, then it is removed out of the freedom of speech and expression field
and into criminal conspiracy.
Did you know, threatening to "kick someone's ass" is considered a criminal offense also?
no, not saying "you need to get your ass kicked"...but actually suggesting you are about to attack them somehow..
opinion is speech, plotting is a crime
