Or: A New Era Take On “None Dare Call It Treason”
To begin: Here’s a few textbook definitions of sedition:
From http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Sedition: A revolt or an incitement to revolt against established authority, usually in the form of Treason or Defamation against government.
From https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sedition: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.
So let’s see … anybody here seen any examples of this lately?
I have. Here’s a short list:
1) Pop music star Madonna at a demonstration immediately after the election: “I wish I could blow up the White House.”
2) Hollywood movie star Robert Deniro: “I’d like to punch Trump right in the face.”
3) Kathy Griffin and her oh-so-adorable pose with a disembodied head of President Trump. (And then she’s got the unbridled fucking nerve to cry about the people’s reaction afterwards.)
4) Any part of Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscar hosting gig.
5) Anything from Hollywood movie star Alec Baldwin. (Yes, I put him after Jimmy Kimmel … at least Kimmel still has some class, even if he IS just a third-rate comedian. Almost none of the Baldwin bros do.)
6) Those idiots in Central Park and their absolutely AWFUL misinterpretation of “Julius Caesar”. If I was Shakespeare, I’d climb right of my grave and hunt them down. “The Walking Dead” would have nothing on me.
So there’s it is. As I take a moment to pause and look it over, I’ve filled in a bunch of Hollywood/show-biz types. I can’t produce anything concrete on the politicians that are out there; Elizabeth Warren presents a pretty clear and present danger as a seditionist. Others are less obvious about it, but are still in the game anyway—George Soros comes to mind. I would love, LOVE to see his tax returns, as long as that subject is being bandied about. I wonder what kind of tax breaks he gets for covertly funding sedition through any number of social efforts.
What really scares me is the fact that—for the most part—Obama’s gone underground. Oh sure, there’s been a few sound bites here and there. There’s a new YouTube video up of him congratulating Jay-Z on some Hall of Fame nomination. But beyond that, Obama’s gone quiet and dark, and that is disturbing. At least when he was president we could keep an eye on him. He may have been destructive to the country, but it was obvious damage. Now … I don’t know. And that, my friends, is deeply worrisome.
It would not surprise me if he, Soros, and Hillary The Horrible were all behind this latest legal push to take down President Trump. What they cannot do by direct frontal assault—because it would be much too obvious and would tip their hand, thereby derailing their efforts—they are almost certainly doing by covert means. Scarier still is the idea that I don’t even know what form those means take.
The next thing to think about is where this track leads. Unfortunately, I can tell you that part: It leads to some disturbed redneck ex-plumber living out of his van next to a baseball diamond in Alexandria VA, who camps out there and waits for the Republican baseball team, and then tries to gun them all down. These people, Hollywood and liberal politicians alike, wound that asshole up and aimed him at the Republicans just like the guns he carried.
This will not be the last time we see this, I’m afraid. I can’t speak for anybody else, but having analyzed terrorist acts for some years now, I can tell you that this has all the same data points as the attack on the U.S.S. COLE—a small-scale test-bed effort, just to see if they can do it. The next attack will almost certainly be a straight shot on the President himself, or at least at someone from the Cabinet. I don’t envy the Secret Service their job.
So—with that analysis done, back to the opening lines of this missive. I submit to you, dear reader, that the time has come to re-institute the laws against sedition. Now, we’ve had them before: The Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798, the Espionage Act of 1917, and the Alien Registration Act (Smith Act) in 1940. Each time they worked; the Smith Act, in particular, was used in a series of trials against members of the Communist Party of the USA between 1949 and 1957. If Wikipedia is to be believed, the Smith Act is still on the books, although it has lain unused since 1961.
I sincerely hope that Wikipedia is right on this one. If that is indeed the case, then the Trump administration has something to start with in their countering efforts against the liberal groundswell. Furthermore, the Trump lawyers could even articulate a legal argument against the liberals that posits they are responsible for the Alexandria asshole. It wouldn’t be that hard.
The only thing we are missing is concrete evidence. Next time there is an attack—and I’m sad to say, there will be next time, given the current circumstances—we need to take the attacker alive. Tall order, I know; certainly if they came at me, I’d try to put them down. But we need a witness to point the finger back at the seditionists, and that means going against our better judgement and actually allowing a couple of them to live.
Sedition it is, and by any other name is still sedition. Hollywood, the Democratic Party, even the mainstream media have all conspired together to bring this about. I daresay if I were to walk into a college classroom anywhere in this country now, the professor at the head of the class would be teaching the students about the evil that is Donald Trump.
