    Since we don't live in an anarchic state....

    Case 1: Anti-obama zealot.  No, you shouldn't shoot him.  You should retreat and call the fucking cops and report an assault.

    Case 2: Rachel Maddow.  Yes, she should retreat.  Then she should call the fucking cops and report an assault.  Note the common thread here?

    Case 3: Stonewall.  I believe the riots were mostly property crimes and assault, not self-defense using lethal force, so it doesn't apply.

    Case 4: Non-violent protestors NOT using violence against their aggressors is not self defense and thus it doesn't apply.

    You're reading far too much into the 'duty to retreat', and seem to want to do a bunch of killing to protect your fragile ego.
