if someone tells you they are going to rape you to death, to your face, that's assault

But it happens all the time on the internet and is rarely, if ever, investigated. Probably most threats on the internet are not credible, but how do you know? If you are a semi-public figure the internet because a risk-free way to threaten and harass you, with guaranteed no consequences.

There are going to be people that say things or publish things you find distasteful. If you don't like it don't partake in that activity/event/business/group/etc.

Are you under the impression that when people get offended they somehow have legal power to make you stop saying the offensive thing? They are fighting speech with speech. What mental gymnastics do you have to jump through to believe that people should be able to say the things you agree with but then when people don't like those things they are not allowed to argue back?

It's really easy to say people don't need protection when nobody is every trying attack you. People don't try to sneak naked pictures of you in the bathroom and post them on the internet. People don't follow you around all day saying they are going to rape you to death. I think you might have a different opinion if they did.

His proposed tax plan pretty much only reduces taxes for the super rich. The high end of the brackets will have up to 7% decreased marginal rate, while low and middle income families will see somewhere between .5-1% decreased rate unless you are a single parent or have more than two children as a couple, then you could actually pay more taxes. Also if you are a single person with no children making between about $120k-190k you will pay more taxes.
