    ..... thanks to our lovely Supreme Court, with its "expansive" view of the 1st Amendment, at this point that hate/hit list is 100% legal.  

    The only place where it would cross the line is if the guy threatened to kill any of those people himself, e.g. "I am going to systematically take out the following...."  But even then, he would probably argue 1st Amendment, and he'd even have supporters among "liberals" and "progressives."

    That said, the FBI is probably aware of him and keeping enough of an eye on him that, if he was to do anything concrete such as seek out a contract killer or start buying weapons or explosives, they would get some undercover agents in the loop ASAP.  He'd end up like the RC aircraft & explosives guy: arrested as soon as he took possession of the material.

    And that said, these types are usually cowards who talk a big streak but count on their words motivating some lone nut to do the deed (stochastic terrorism).  Then they can do the "oh so sad" routine and say they can't control what their audiences do.  

    "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
