We Could Use A Bit Of Insurrection Against The Established Order

 

 

 

” I appeared on NPR on Wednesday and was surprised to hear a caller say that Sen. Ted Cruz should be charged with sedition. “I’m really baffled by the fact that the discussion has not ever reached the point where charges of sedition should be brought up against him for conspiring and bullying others to work with him to undermine the American economy … full faith and credit,” the caller said. “He’s done so much damage to the standing of the United States in the world. And if you read the Sedition Act, it seems like it really applies.”

A colleague on the panel, the Wall Street Journal’s Sudeep Reddy, assured the caller, “There is no possibility of that.” And the conversation moved on. But it turns out that in a few corners of the left, there are activists who would like to see Cruz, along with other Republicans and conservatives who have expressed strong opposition to Obamacare, charged with inciting rebellion against the United States government.

After Cruz and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin appeared together last weekend on the National Mall, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported the event in front of a screen with pictures of Cruz and Palin and the title LATEST SEDITION. Maddow did not utter the word itself, but viewers certainly got the message.”

 

 

Here is a legal definition of :

 

 SEDITION

” An insurrectionary movement tending towards treason, but wanting an overt act; attempts made by meetings or speeches, or by publications, to disturb the tranquillity of the state. The distinction between “sedition” and “treason” consists in this: that though the ultimate object of sedition is a violation of the public peace, or at least such a course of measures as evidently engenders it. yet it does not aim at direct and open violence against the laws or the subversion of the constitution. Alis. Crim. Law, 5S0. In Scotch law. The raising commotions or disturbances in the state. It Is a revolt against legitimate authority. Ersk. Inst 4, 4, 14. In English law. Sedition is the offense of publishing, verbally or otherwise, any words or document with the intention of exciting disaffection, hatred, or contempt against the sovereign, or the government and constitution of the kingdom, or either house of parliament, or the administration of justice. or of exciting his majesty’s subjects to attempt, otherwise than by lawful means, the alteration of any matter in church or state, or of exciting feelings of ill will and hostility between different classes of his majesty’s subjects. Sweet. And see State v. Shepherd, 177 Mo. 205. 76 S. W. 79, 99 Am. St. Rep. 624.”

 

 

   The above words regarding the “crime” of sedition would seem to run quite contrary to the spirit of America in that they can easily be construed to prohibit any kind of disagreement in the political arena . The Left can revel in that language if they so choose , but the following words would seem to take precedence from an American point of view .

 

 

 

 

”  When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

   We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

   The words above should be required reading these days and that is why the progressives have systematically tried to eliminate the instruction of American history in the indoctrination centers we refer to as public schools . For those of you who do not recognize the above words , they are the opening paragraphs of the document that changed the world , the Declaration of Independence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Round ‘Em Up … Dissenters To The Camps

 

 

 

Belanfonte Gulag

 

” Belafonte’s comment reveals the true nature of the “progressive” – it differs little from that of the communist thug who has zero tolerance for any opposition. Belafonte’s mindset ultimately terminates in purges, “cultural revolutions,” and death camps.”

    Not that it really comes as a surprise , after all I did publish a post yesterday entitled ” Win or Lose There Will Be Blood “ , but I was taken quite unawares by the vehemence immediately displayed on Twitter by the so called ” party of tolerance and civil discourse ” on learning of their defeat at the hands of Wisconsin’s citizens .

    Considering the fact that the entire recall mess was just another hissy fit in response to an election result of which they did not approve and the progs known proclivities for violent behavior , this latest display of “leftist graciousness ” should be a lesson to all of the less astute political observers in the land . 

Behold some of what passes for courteous behavior on the left side of the aisle .

“Please somebody kill Scott Walker.”

“Scott walker will die within the next week ive already payed for the hit”

“Scott walker needs fall down the capital stairs & die..”

  This is the crowd that desires us on the other side of the aisle to exhibit ” bipartisanship ” ? That’s akin to sitting down and negotiating with terrorists ( oops , my bad ) isn’t it ? 

Bumper Sticker Humor

Professor Jacobsen at Legal Insurrection has , with the help of readers , been assembling a quite comprehensive collection of witicism ( mostly of the leftist variety ) of bumper sticker humor bumper sticker humor . The collection is well worth your time .
As an aside , have any of you ever wondered why it is that if you spot a car plastered with bumper stickers , that it is a foregone conclusion that they will be leftist stickers ?
  I don’t know about you all , but I never see a car covered in right leaning bumper stickers . It always seems to be the progressives that feel obliged to wear their beliefs on their asses er trunks .

Given the milquetoast,  bend over backward to accommodate attitude of what passes for our Republican leadership in congress will they actually accomplish anything? Past history is not in our favor. 
  Its beyond time for the right side of the aisle to be represented by some people who exhibit some cojones.  Something that has been missing for a long time.  The dems fight for their beliefs,  however wrong-headed they may be.  Would that we could say the same for our side.  I say no more BENDING OVER and taking it in the name of bipartisanship.
