TRAITORS ALL!

se·di·tion (n.)

1. Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state.  2. Insurrection; rebellion.

There’s been a lot of throwing around of the word “sedition” by liberals these days.   (Funny how they never brought that word up during the Bush Presidency.)  Anyway, a few weeks ago, Time Magazine columnist and all-around Obama butt-boy, Joe Klein, said that comments made by Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck criticizing Obama come “close to being seditious.”1  And now just this week, uber-liberal Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said that Republican opposition to the Obama agenda is “almost at the level of sedition.”2  

Of course, neither of these left-wing geniuses cited any examples to back up their assertions.  But that’s okay.  If they want to talk about sedition, let’s talk about sedition. 

The definition of sedition (above) entails language or conduct that either incites rebellion or is tantamount to rebellion against a state.  Well, what about the spectacle that took place on the floor of the U.S. Congress last week?  I’d say that just about qualifies.  There you had the leader of a foreign country, “El Presidente” Felipe Calderon of Mexico, appear as an invited guest of the Democrats in Congress, and bash the State of Arizona’s new immigration law.  Speaking from the podium, Calderon had this to say:

“I strongly disagree with the recently adopted law in Arizona.  It is a law that … ignores a reality that cannot be erased by decree, [and] introduces a terrible idea using racial profiling as a basis for law enforcement.”3

Now, while this comment may have been ugly, tactless, undiplomatic and even insulting to most Americans — not to mention a display of complete ignorance of the law in question (Hey, maybe this guy should go to work for the Obama administration!), — none of what El Presidente had to say has anything to do with sedition.  Calderon is a foreign leader and, while he may be an indelicate third-world clown, he is allowed to say just about whatever he wants.  More the fools we as a country are for inviting him to say it in the House of Representatives during a joint session of Congress. 4

No, the sedition occurred immediately following Calderon’s remark: when every single Congressional Democrat, together with key Obama administration officials including the Vice-President, gave this obnoxious foreigner a standing ovation.  The sedition occurred when Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), acting in her capacity as Speaker of the House, chose an ovation to the leader of a foreign power over the duly enacted law of a sister state.  The sedition occurred when Eric Holder, acting in his capacity as Attorney General, chose an ovation to the leader of a foreign power over the duly enacted law of a sister state.  The sedition occurred when Janet Napolitano, acting in her capacity as Secretary of Homeland Security, chose an ovation to the leader of a foreign power over the duly enacted law of a sister state.  The sedition occurred when Senator John Kerry (D-MA), acting in his capacity as an elected representative of the State of Massachusetts, chose an ovation to the leader of a foreign power over the duly enacted law of a sister state.  The sedition occurred when Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), acting in her capacity as an elected representative of the State of California, chose an ovation to the leader of a foreign power over the duly enacted law of a sister state.  The sedition occurred when Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), acting in his capacity as an elected representative of the State of New Jersey, chose an ovation to the leader of a foreign power over the duly enacted law of a sister state.

After Calderon made his offensive utterances, these legislators and these White House officials — supposed representatives of the American people — had a choice, and they chose to conduct themselves in the vile, seditious manner in which they did.  They chose the facile expediency of political correctness over fealty to their own country.  They chose the distorted, ill-informed, self-serving policy pronouncement of a corrupt foreign power over the duly enacted law of a State of the Republic.  In short, they publicly and flagrantly betrayed the State of Arizona and, in so doing, betrayed us all. 

What’s more, the sedition occurred (and continues to occur) when John Morton, the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement — the man supposedly charged with enforcing the nation’s immigration laws — says he’s not necessarily going to enforce the law insofar as it pertains to Arizona.  Uh-huh.  Why?  Well, because he says he doesn’t think it’s all that great of a law.  “I don’t think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution,” he said. 5  Who the hell cares what you think you elitist asshole!  Who says you get to pick and choose which laws to enforce?!  Do your job and enforce the law! 

And so… [composure regained] these are all rank traitors.  So brazen are they in their treason that they are effectively pledging allegiance to a foreign sovereign state and a foreign flag: the Mexican flag.  They are doing so in their capacity as duly elected officials and government employees.  They are doing so on government soil and during a high-profile exercise of their solemn duty and sacred oath to represent the citizens of these United States, not the corrupt interests of a foreign sovereign.  They have betrayed that duty and that oath.  And they have betrayed the trust of the American people. 

It is one thing to use speech (language) to criticize a particular leader and his policies.  That is what Palin, Beck and many others including your humble writer here do.  That is political debate and political discourse and is at the essence of a free and open society.  However, it is quite another thing to attack the society itself and the very laws that undergird it; that is what these Democrat politicians are doing and that is sedition.  Simply, they are traitors all! 6

Now in the good old days, traitors were hanged, drawn, and quartered. Sadly that’s no longer the practice and as long as these thugs remain in power they will escape any punishment.  Elections have consequences, don’t cha know!  However in November, you the American voter can have your own little treason trial: where you get to be judge, jury, and hangman right there in the voting booth.  Be sure to make these villains pay for their high crimes.  And as for the biggest traitor of all, well I guess we’ll just have to wait for 2012 to come around.  But that’s okay.  We can wait, Mr. President.

Fn. 4:  As an aside, an inquiring mind might ask why he is so against the Arizona law? Is it because Señor Felipe Calderon is such a big proponent of civil rights in a country where he tolerates half of his population living in abject poverty?  No, it’s because Arizona just made it just that much more difficult for him to unload that half of his country into our country.  (According to official figures, in 2009 Mexico had more than 50 million people living in poverty, roughly 45 percent of the population, and those numbers are increasing.)

  2. j333bass Says:

    Mexico is our neighbor to the South. They are our friends and our allies.
    This video shows diplomacy in action.

    There are Americans of Mexican ancestry, simple as that. California and much of the Southwest was Mexico before it was a part of the U.S. America and Mexico are inextricably linked through a common history, and also the present, which soon becomes the future.

    Mexico and the United States are friends. No one should suffer violence against them for inviting leaders of friendly nations to speak. A standing ovation is a sign of respect. We respect Mexico as our neighbor, with whom we share the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

    Sorry C.C., but your demagoguery and ad hominem attacks do not constitute a rational argument. Conjecture and exaggeration from you: hangings and being drawn and quartered.

    We live in Human Civilization in the year 2010…We live in the United States of America. We respect human life, we don’t threaten it.

    C.C., you are being irrational and talking non-sense, again.

    Stop the demagoguery and the ad hominem attacks: the absence of rational thought.

      “Mexico is our neighbor to the South.”
      Really? And all this time I thought they were North by Northwest! No wonder I’ve been so mixed up. Thanks for the geography lesson Mr. Obvious.

      I’ll tell you what, I’ll concede the absence of rational thought if you concede the absence of thought.

      You really are a glutton for punishment aren’t you?

  3. j333bass Says:

    Here, focus on the word…

    “neighbor”

    • culturecrusader Says:

      Yes, I’ll focus on the word “neighbor.” I’ll also focus on rainbows and unicorns and everybody in the world holding hands and singing kumbaya. How old are you anyway? I’m guessing 13? 14? Get your head out of the sand and click on the link below to see all the “neighborly” things our Southern neighbor has been doing for us lately.

    http://immigrationcounters.com/…This is not a highly accredited source of information. No, this website is not to be trusted. They cherry-pick their sources to provide a biased view.

    We can deal with illegal immigration without profiling people based on physical appearance and demanding they show documentation.

    C.C., you are an Ignorant Conservative – this is not an ad hominem attack. You have proved yourself to be incapable of constructing a rational argument. You simply insult and name-call. You don’t know how to formulate your thoughts into cogent sentences. That is the definition of Ignorance.

    It was the Ignorant Conservative, George W. Bush (2001-2009), and the Republican-majority Congress (2001-2006) that caused the Great Recession.

    They stole $700 billion-plus for an unjustified war in Iraq. Then they obliterated our economy by allowing self regulation by the Wall Street banks concerning Subprime Mortgage-backed Securities, costing the taxpayers another $700 billion.

    If you want to get mad, get mad at the Conservatives. If you like bailouts, vote Republican…the bailouts of AIG, Wall Street and the car companies started under Republican President George W. Bush.

    C.C.,

    Strip away those layers of Ignorance one by one.

    Your daily reminder of the Crisis of Credit:

    http://crisisofcredit.com/

    The Great Recession is the Result of Republican Party Rule.

    The Conservative Calamity of the 2000s…

    - George W. Bush is President 2001-2009

    - Republican majority Congress 2001-2006 (the hey day of Subprime was 2004 to 2007)

    The Democrats are cleaning up the multiple messes left behind by the Republicans.

    Strip away those layers of ignorance, C.C.

    Your fellow American,

    Justin Bass

    Bush, Cheney, Bush, Cheney, Conservative calamity, Iraq War.. blah, blah, blah.. Is that all you’re capable of? parroting liberal talking points. They were dumb the last seventeen times you wrote them so it’s a good bet theyll be dumb yet again.

    Go over to Huffington Postal like your great leader has urged: they’re more at your level there.

  7. j333bass Says:

    Remember, C.C. you commented on my blog first. You knocked on my door; I’m responding.

    You’re pretty blithe about a war that was started on a false premise of WMDs (propaganda) and which resulted in the deaths of 4,000-plus U.S. soldiers, the deaths of 50,000-plus innocent Iraqi civilians…at a cost of $700 billion-plus of taxpayers’ money that mainly benefited the politically connected military contractors, like Halliburton.

    Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old company, made so much profit in the Iraq war and throughout the Bush years, the company moved its headquarters from Houston, Texas to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

    True Story.

    The outright greed and malfeasance that occurred under a Republican President, a Republican Congress and a Republican-majority-appointed Supreme Court Bench (that voted George W. Bush into power during the historic and unprecedented Bush v. Gore)…was Banana Republic-style strongman despotism.

    You are out of your mind and delusional for missing the BIG HEIST by Bush and his cronies…and then when the next administration comes in to clean up the mess you blame them. C.C., you are possibly the most Ignorant Conservative I’ve encountered.

    An excellent post on this!
    Biden, Pelosi and the rest were all wearing wristbands to bash Arizona.
    Two can play at that game:
