    This is an important concept for people to get:  What the hate-talkers and shit-talkers are aiming for is to stir up lone wolves.  Ultimately they are going for hits on prominent progressives and elected officials.  And when the hits occur, the shit-talkers have plausible deniability and get a legal pass via Brandenburg (the "imminent" standard for incitement, like a "fast food" standard for restaurants).  

    Think of pollution.  You run a company that dumps toxic shit in the river and there's a predictable statistical increase in cancers downstream.  But no individual case of cancer can be proven definitively to have resulted from the pollution, so your company is safe from lawsuits.
