    It could also be said of nearly every hateful organization.

    Look, I'm not going to defend Fox.  God knows, they're a bunch of bastards.  And you are right that the events in Rwanda didn't pop out of thin air.  Certain very specific groups sought to prey upon and amplify existing political and social schisms in the populous.  This is not terribly different from what Fox does.  And you are right, it is dangerous.

    However, we have a bright shining line here when it comes to protected speech.  Fox has not crossed that legal line yet.  And there is a difference between saying "I could kill [this or that guy]" and "The Liberals are in there, go get 'em and kill them all!".  The right response to the former is to call them out, loudly and frequently, and marginalize them.  That is, fight insidious, hateful speech with speech.
