A Washington state Republican politician took part in private discussions with rightwing figures about carrying out surveillance, “psyops” and even violent attacks on perceived political enemies, according to chat records obtained by the Guardian.
I'm telling you - there is going to be a flurry of violence if Trump dies suddenly or the GOP lose control of the Senate or Presidency. Bank on it.

Really? I guess you missed their name change. It's now referred to as the "Republican Congressional Caucus".

Would be cool if we made Saying Things That Are Demonstrable Lies To The Detriment And Risk Of The Greater Public illegal. Oh, you went on InfoWars and said people’s kids didn’t really die in a massacre in which they obviously died? That will be 10 years in prison. Parole? LOL no. Oh you promoted that Pizzagate nonsense that led to someone shooting the place up and another person setting fire to it? That will be life. Welcome to the Huckabee-Sanders wing of the prison. If you’re lucky you can catch the namesake working out in the yard during the 4 minutes a day she’s allowed to see the light. We could make room for all of them by letting all the black kids busted for petty weed crimes out of prison.

It's already illegal to yell fire in a crowded theater. What you propose isn't all that much different. Our times are so politically charged, it's like a powderkeg waiting for a match.
