I think the "Fire in a crowded theatre" analogy is off. More comparable is yelling "go ahead and shoot him I dare you" to a nutjob who is holding a gun to your neighbour's head. Then claiming, "Hey, I didn't shoot him. Don't look at me" when your neighbour gets his brains splattered onto the lawn.


Aptly put

Yet this is what mainstream Republicans (gingrich, Bachman, Palin, Beck...) are saying as they light the oily rags of racism and religious intolerence, just to incite people to fight against a populist movement and President and restore the corporate status quo. Religous wars and race wars are the easiest conflagrations to ignite by self consumed despots.
