Never mind that the logo is based directly off the Great Seal of the United States - the difference being is that the shield is located below the eagle instead of superimposed in front of it.

No, a common meme on TGDN is that Obama has made himself a King or a Dictator (apart from the popular Hitler comparisons) so he has to be removed from office.

That video is from Terry Jones (the guy famous for public burnings of the Koran). His website is chock full of violent imagery like that.
Here’s a cached version of his website depicting the event.

Take special note of this image from the bottom of the page. There is no room for interpretation whatsoever the message he’s trying to get across.

It’s like reading a stream of consciousness from a paranoid delusional schizophrenic sociopath.

They really like to threaten, but never act. Could it be that deep down they know their fantasy is stupid, and that revolution is merely a coded way of threatening political opponents?

I think most won’t start anything. But if they egg on those that really are insane enough to try then I wouldn’t exactly call them harmless. And twitter gives them the reach to influence a significant number of unstable personalities.
