It is an interesting question whether he crossed the border between first amendment protected speech and incitement to violence. His insistence that his fans should kill tens of millions of American citizens shows a character, if possible, even more deplorable than Trump. God, guns, and rock & roll indeed...

Fortunately, Republican primaries are all conducted between gentlemen.

'Don't vote for the ching-chong!' is right up there with Cuomo I's "vote for cuomo not the homo" campaign against Ed Koch. Koch identified as heterosexual

As an aside, Cynthia Nixon (of Sex and the City) who isrunning against Cuomo II at the moment joked that her slogan is "vote for the homo not the cuomo"

Detroit school board seeks to change name of Ben Carson High
"It is synonymous with having Trump's name on our school in blackface," Detroit school board member Lamar Lemmons told The Washington Post, when asked why is he leading the charge to remove Carson's name.
Carson "is doing Trump's bidding, and he has adversely affected the African-American community in Detroit as well as the nation with his housing policies," Lemmons said. "And he's allied himself with a president that says he is a white nationalist and sends dog whistles that even the deaf can hear."
Black conservatives like Dr Carson, who wants to get african-americans off the welfare-warfare reservation, are considered dangerous
what does that even mean, "It is synonymous with having Trump's name on our school in blackface?"

During the 2016 election, I took an online questionnaire which looked at your positions and told you which candidate agreed with me. In my case, Dr Carson was the candidate closest to my own beliefs with President Trump a close second
