Sedition is defined as overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent towards or resistance against established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. Sedition, typically, is considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be and should be prosecutable under sedition laws which vary from one legal code to another.
If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
Inciting of riots is also illegal (18 U.S. Code § 2102) is defined as follows:
- As used in this chapter, the term “riot” means a public disturbance involving (1) an act or acts of violence by one or more persons part of an assemblage of three or more persons, which act or acts shall constitute a clear and present danger of, or shall result in, damage or injury to the property of any other person or to the person of any other individual or (2) a threat or threats of the commission of an act or acts of violence by one or more persons part of an assemblage of three or more persons having, individually or collectively, the ability of immediate execution of such threat or threats, where the performance of the threatened act or acts of violence would constitute a clear and present danger of, or would result in, damage or injury to the property of any other person or to the person of any other individual.
- As used in this chapter, the term “to incite a riot”, or “to organize, promote, encourage, participate in, or carry on a riot”, includes, but is not limited to, urging or instigating other persons to riot, but shall not be deemed to mean the mere oral or written (1) advocacy of ideas or (2) expression of belief, not involving advocacy of any act or acts of violence or assertion of the rightness of, or the right to commit, any such act or acts.
Today we have various Democrats and various Liberal Leftists Operatives calling for an escalation of incivility and violence against Republicans, Conservatives, and those supporting the Constitution and the Rule of Law. We have long been aware of the maniacal and deranged calls by Maxine Waters for violence. We have had a steady supply of people like Kathy Griffin, Robert De Niro, Snoop Dogg, Mickey Rourke, Larry Wilmore, George Lopez, Rosie O’Donnell, Johnny Depp, Anthony Bourdain, and a myriad of others all calling for harm to the president or his family. We have college professors calling for killing or harming white people especially white men such as Texas A&M associate professor of philosophy, Tommy Curry wrote in an article entitled, “When Is It OK to Kill Whites?” He said, “In order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people might have to die.” Those are just a few people in places of influence calling for violence. These are all leftists, and all seem to ignore and possibly believe they are immune from prosecution. Are they? I hope not because if we allow this kind of rhetoric, sedition, and the inciting of riotous behavior to continue There Will Be Violence!
We are facing the most critical elections in our nation’s history this November. What we do or do not do will determine the direction and possibly the future of our Republic. We dare not believe that their calls for hate, violence, and the destruction of our inalienable rights will subside if they win, It Will Not! We dare not become complacent and say, as I have heard some say, “Politics has become so ugly, I am no longer going to participate.” That is exactly what they hope, that we give up and throw in the towel. We dare not do that, we are fighting for Freedom and the preservation of our Constitutional Republic. A Republic and system of government that has served us well for over 240 years.
You may not like the president and consider him boorish and uncouth, but I plead with you to set aside your personal dislikes and realize what is at stake. Check the voting records of the Democrats running for office and you will realize they are in lock-step with the Democrat Establishment in DC. If you want to see America return to being, a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, it is imperative that you vote and vote no on the Leftists and pressure your elected official to honor America and protect and defend our Constitution.
God bless you and God bless America!
