DEMOCRATS: Respectful Dissent, Sedition, or Treason?

By:  Dan Perkins

As a patriot, I have become deeply concerned with all the attacks on Donald Trump as to his right and ability to be President. The Democrats have the right for respectful dissent, however, I believe the statements by elected leaders as well as by the news media are dangerously close to Sedition or possibly even Treason. If you look at the words used and then look at the law as copied below, you may agree with me that many Democrats have crossed the line and our nation is at peril. I invite you to read the exact quotations of people who want to bring this President and his government down in any way they can, regardless of the law of the land.

Let us start with the Law first. The following definitions of Sedition and Treason are from U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 115, Sections 2381 and 2384: “Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof” is breaking the law and the penalty “If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.”

Under Article III, the U.S. Constitution Says, “a person can levy war against the United States without the use of arms, weapons, or military equipment.” “The person who does these things is considered to have committed treason.”

Now let us look at the words of the Democratic Party leadership and see if they are in fact suggesting the duly elected government by the people should be eliminated:

News Media

New York Post When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. Sedition_________ Treason _____
In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington.

All the information listed here are either direct quotes or actual headlines from the identified newspapers or TV network. These are far from all the items that could fill many pages. What I ask you to do is go through each item and score it and see what happens at the end. Keep one thought in mind. Words do mean something and all of this is by no means just words.

Now after you have scored each item, go back and look at the law and then decide if America is under attack by people who want to change the duly elected government. If you agree that your America is under attack, then stand up and say something loud and often to your congressman and senators.
