How to use incitement in a sentence?

  1. Alden Abbott:

    I think it's safe to say it's an uphill climb, but as lawyers normally do, belt and suspenders approach, when in a suit against a public official or any lawsuit for tort, which is basically what this seems to be, you're going to put down any defense that you think might be successful, immunity is only one out of many, and I suspect they're going to put a lot more on the First Amendment and the lack of being able to prove incitement. ... So if (immunity) were the only defense it would be an uphill defense, but it's only one of many responses.

  3. Angela Merkel:

  4. Debbi Almontaser:

    We support free speech, but we will not accept the incitement of violence against Muslims, what the New York Post is doing is endangering the lives of American Muslims and people of color.

  5. Emmerson Mnangagwa:

    One week ago I announced measures to stabilize our nation's crucial fuel supply. I was aware that these measures may not be popular, and this was not a decision we took lightly. But it was the right thing to do, what followed was regrettable and tragic. Everyone has the right to protest, but this was not a peaceful protest. Wanton violence and cynical destruction ; looting police stations, stealing guns and uniforms ; incitement and threats of violence. This is not the Zimbabwean way.
