NY Times: Donald Trump Suggests ‘Second Amendment People’ Could Act Against Hillary Clinton
In response the Secret Service said they were watching the situation... why? Because words can cause conflict!
CNN: Secret Service spoke to Trump campaign about 2nd Amendment comment
Everyone believed that saying such things encourages people under your influence to act out, either directly or indirectly. Turns out everyone believes that a powerful person can kill someone just with words! For example here is an extract from a History website;
These measures, along with threats on the president’s life, were kept quiet. For example, on one occasion, when the press reported in July 1900 that McKinley had been threatened by anarchists, the federal government did not comment on the matter. In fact, the president’s protectors did everything they could to stem the story because they discovered that there was a strong correlation between inflammatory rhetoric, actual threats, copycat threats, and potential attacks. As Wilkie presciently wrote to Cortelyou in August 1901, “I am not insensible to the fact that incendiary talk frequently results in serious action by some individual who may be suffering real or fancied wrongs at the hands of a person in power.”
That would suggest that if EVERY citizen had protection from the last law enforcement agency in the States (the Secret Service) then much of Fox News "free speech" would have to be edited or they would have to be dealt with in some manner to help them fit into a modern civilized society.
Here is a list of some of the things that Fox News - or it's protected by Fox News allies - have said to kill people in the past and got away with it. I was wondering if the Secret Service could take a look at it and expand thier services to include ALL citizens and not just the very important ones. It's not right to allow Fox/GOP to kill people with rhetoric and roam free without any consequences. The rest of this post documents such crimes by the GOP (please Secret Service, you are this nations last hope!)
Back when Fox News was using incendiary rhetoric on liberals and general and Sarah Palin put a "cross hairs" on a senator that led to her and a Judge getting shot. The media managed to avoid all the causes of the event

.... and when there was a reaction to using the word "Nazi" as incendiary rhetoric (something we have, theoretically, known since the 1900s), Fox News began to pretend it never happened! ...

Here is an example of Bill O Reilly getting a doctor killed and then pretending he had nothing to do with it
O'Reilly Repeatedly Demonized Abortion Provider Dr. George Tiller And Then Lied About It After Tiller Was Murdered
• O'Reilly Repeatedly Referred To Tiller As "The Baby Killer." [6/2/09]
• In 2006, O'Reilly Sent His Producer To "Confront" The "Doctor Known As Tiller The Baby Killer." [11/8/06]
• In 2007, O'Reilly Again Sent A Producer To Ambush The "Doctor Known As Tiller The Baby Killer." [Fox News, The O'Reilly Factor, 6/12/07]
• After Tiller Was Murdered, O'Reilly Repeatedly Falsely Claimed He Had Only Reported What Other Groups Called Tiller. [6/2/09]
• O'Reilly Subsequently Accused Joan Walsh Of Having "Blood On Her Hands" For Defending Tiller. [Fox News, The O'Reilly Factor, 6/12/09]
• In 2012, O'Reilly Was Still Claiming That "What Tiller Was Doing Was Murder."[Fox News, The O'Reilly Factor, 3/1/12]
(would the Secret Service have let Bill O Reilly get away with this if these words were directed at the President? I don't think so. Regular citizens should also get such protections from Traitor Networks. It's not fair that you have to make it all the way to President before you get protection form the words of the rich and powerful.)
More killing with rhetoric with no consequences: Domestic Terrorism over a GOP wedge issue (something they use to try and inw elections with by creating divide, i.e. "wedge" issue):

Muslim lawmaker blames Trump’s rhetoric for death threat
A modest proposal: Trump has it all wrong — to prevent crime, we need to do some “exteme vetting” of men - If we need a police state to stop crime, the target shouldn't be immigrants but those commiting most crimes: men
Some more proofs of terrorist rhetoric being allowed as long as it's Fox/GOP;
If the Citizens had Secret Service protection then the 4000+ soldiers lost in the Iraq War for oil would be priceless lives that must be protected and not lives whose value can be measured by how much they have added to Halliburton and Cheney's bank account.
If Citizens had Secret Service protection then ...
You know, the word about the weirdness on 9/11 is spreading. The Secret Service is charged with protecting the President. The President in the "Commander in Chief" of the army... who all will blame for covering up 9/11 i.e. who finds out about it. The chances of a President getting killed by some crazy guy goes up the longer the traitors of 9/11 and Iraq aren't dealt with (also, how much of everyday madness can be linked to people who know about 9/11 and will say anything and everything BUT that they know?). Just a thought. Related links;
