Seems to me that if we want to start calling rhetoric violence, then we're going to have to come up for a new word that means actual, physical violence.

To a certain extent maybe but not for everyone. Some overly devoted fans could be but those in the middle nah. I am beginning to see younger generations not caring about politics at all too! Maybe because the older generations tend to be from either sides, extreme sides that is. Millenials are milder.

I think sometimes it does. But there may be times when some people use it as an excuse to do what they want to do.
