19. no you aren't at all for exercising 1st amendment rights
if you are calling for his arrest for his obviously legal speech

he wasn't inciting jacksquat.

and you clearly haven't read the case law surrounding the 1st amendment.

start with schenck, move on to brandenberg (which superseded it and is currently law of the land) and you will see that what did is no different than what any # of people on the left and right have done legally for decades.
