What is Meant by Snuff?

Eugene Volokh thinks that he probably was meaning to say run out of business.  I think it would have had to be a pretty poor choice of words in that instance.   I think it’s quite likely the Reverend didn’t intend people to literally go in and drag him out into the streets and kill him, and I think he’d probably have a pretty good defense against any charges.  But I do think he was alluding to violence in his speech.

This rhetoric is irresponsible, insulting and reprehensible for utterance by a public figure and supposed man of the cloth.  Sadly, we have people like this on our side too.

    Well… I guess he wouldn’t be too upset if some windows got smashed.
