If freedom of speech is so sancrosanct, why is it illegal to tell people en masse to take money out of a bank? Aaaaaaah yes, I see, the banks have the gold and the golden rule, he who has the gold, makes the rules, applies here.

It is?

Why am I not in jail?

Why is Ariana Huffington not in jail?

It is not illegal to tell people en-masse to take money out of a bank (that is, to boycott a bank or set of banks.) It is, however, illegal to incite a riot - which doing so in the lobby of the bank could reasonably be construed to occur.

I've heard this claim about it being illegal to tell people to take money out of a bank before. I have repeatedly asked for a cite. Nobody has provided me one anywhere in the US Code, and I can't find one either.

Show me.
