Libs/Statists like Joe Klein, Joe Heilemann, Chris Matthews and Bill Maher et.al. call the patriotic Tea-Party Protesters and any other people who oppose President Barack Hussein Obama’s policies disparaging names such as tea-baggers, racists, KKK members and mobsters etc.
Joe Klein stated, “…I looked up the definition of sedition and it says conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. A lot of the statements especially Glen Beck and Sarah Palin’s come right up close to being seditious.”
Klein and his ilk are the propaganda wing of the Obama administration. They are trying their best to demonize and silence anyone who opposes Obama’s radical agenda.
Well Joe, the definition of sedition is: an illegal action (emphasizing illegal) inciting resistance to lawful authority and tending to cause the disruption or overthrow of the government. The protesters you are talking about are exercising their rights under the First Amendment of the Constitution, which states, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. So Joe, you might want to look that up.
While you are at it, may I suggest you look up the oath of office for the President and the Congressman where they swear to uphold the Constitution. Their oath’s are as follows:
The oath of the President of the United States:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
The oath of Congressman:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Then review the Declaration of Independence and focus on the following two paragraphs that states what the people must do when the Government becomes too oppressive or tyranical and that is why the Second Amendment is so important and it states, A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,…
…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…
You and your ilk may learn that the people you are trying to silence care about their country and are exercising their rights under the Constitution. They want to peacably change through the ballot box the destructive course the Obama administration has this country on.
