You cannot hide behind metaphor and hyperbole when calling for violence. In fact calling for violence against a person or thing is illegal and no judge will let you hide behind these kind of excuses.
I wonder, do you teach your kids to use those expression as well? I can imagine at school "I'm going to punch you in the face", school calls dad and dad replies "don't worry it is all metaphor". You think that will go well?
