    Brandenburg is directly applicable here since it was a broadcast call to join up and march on DC to physically assault elected politicians, including the president, for catering to "the mongrel races".

    They were trying to organize a public lynch mob.  Literally.

    SCOTUS ruled unanimously that it was legal and protected.  If they had stepped foot into DC with weapons they would have been arrested.  If they actually harmed or concretely planned to harm anyone, they would have been arrested.

    But free speech is free.

    This guy can call for any assassination he wants and proclaim his violent interpretation of the 2nd Amendment to anyone that will listen.   Facebook is certainly within its rights to kick him off their site and I'm glad they did so.  

    But what he is doing is legal.
