Threats in public towards our politicians, acceptable?

Joe the Plumber says he would like to take Nancy Pelosi to the back of his woodshed and beat the tar out of her. In a public forum, why is this acceptable?

  • It's not acceptable. But then again there's the whole "free speech" argument and all.

    Making a threat is not protected under free speech

  • It is inappropriate and typical of idiots like Joe the Plumber. But, because of that Freedom of Speech deal, we can't do anything about it. @@ We just have to hope that some day people will finally become more civilized. But that won't happen as long as there are people who are so anti-education.They would rather sit around,smoke pot, spend their money on guns instead of learning some valuable things. Poor jerks.
