The fact that I am seeing people on this app calling for others to be physically hurt because of their beliefs is extremely disturbing. If someone supports something terrible, but has not broken any laws, do they deserve to be harmed?

No, who said that? I've never seen anyone say anything like that, unless they were joking.

Check Think's poll about Antifa, or anything regarding the group.

It's just based on some comments I saw in one of Think's polls regarding Antifa.

I'm good with Richard Spencer taking punches to the face.

If a far righty said that about Hillary (and they've said worse), would you be ok with that?

No. There's no equivalency between the two. Don't fall into that trap.

It's not a trap I'm falling into. People like our other friend currently debating with us and those like him may legitimately feel she deserves some sort of assault. The greater point I'm illustrating is that we can't go around assaulting people we don't like because the metric is not an objective one.

Disagree. Is there nowhere you draw the line? How about a cleric radicalizing people into becoming terrorists?

He's got free speech just like the dick burning the flag (which many people have advocating a severe beat down of). As disgusting as either are, we don't have a right to physically assault them.

When it comes to physical assault because of what someone said, I don't draw lines. It illegal and it's not something I'm willing to go to jail for.

Now you're equating creating terrorists with flag burning?

I've drawn a parallel between giving someone a beatdown for what they've said. Are we having the same conversation?

Apparently not. I see no parallel between advocating terrorists attacks and burning a piece of cloth.

What if they support hurting other people?

Hurting someone is worse than just wanting to.

No, and breaking the law isn't necessarily sufficient either.

I agree. That isn't really the point I was getting at, I just was constrained by the character limit, haha.
