    find a connection between the Army of God, Operation Rescue and a number of others and CAN hit these folks with some kind of RICO or other conspiracy charge.

    It won't end our problems to just see justice done for whomever is tried and even the above won't end it, but it might put a chill in their violence.

    They obviously have the First Amendment right to protest (and to hate speech, whether we like it or not) and I am not interested in chilling that for obvious reasons.

    But somehow, this has to be Roundup at the OK Corral.

    Whose marriage do we get to vote on next?

      ...and that most of the nasty rhetoric is not an immediate call to violence.

      However, if these groups have actually discussed how to do assassinations and bombings, or gave advice to the shooter, then we have conspiracy and material support for terrorism charges, and we can break up the organizations with RICO.

      9-11 changed everything? Well, Katrina changed it back.

        financially destroyed and the groups dismantled like SPLC has done.

        I want to see all conspirators or those who aide and abet in jail.

        They can believe what they want.  They can vote how they want.  They cannot kill who they want or advocate it.
