Governor Deval Patrick – Republican Sedition

Patrick is not the first one to say this. Some Republicans are attempting to break the US Government such that it will fail. In particular, some of the the Tea Baggers, especially Beck and his cohorts are seeking to foment violent revolution. I don’t feel “almost” is an apt description…

It is Treason.

Patrick says Obama critics are ‘almost at the level of sedition’

Governor Deval Patrick, even as he decried partisanship in Washington, said today that Republican opposition to President Obama’s agenda has become so obstinate that it “is almost at the level of sedition.”

The Democratic governor, who is close to the president, made the comments at a forum at Suffolk Law School’s Rappaport Center, where he was asked by an audience member about partisan battling in Congress.

Patrick said that even “on my worst day, when I’m most frustrated about folks who seem to rooting for failure,” he doesn’t face anything like the opposition faced by the president.

“It seems like child’s play compared to what is going on in Washington, where it is almost at the level of sedition, it feels to like me,” Patrick said.

Merriam-Webster.com, the dictionary site, defines sedition as “incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.”

If It Quacks Like a Duck… Conservatism and Whining About Being Identified as Racist

This is one of two videos by conservative talk jock Alex Jones. Now, conservatives have dominated the radio air waves since shortly after Raygun killed the Fairness Doctrine, and the FCC began loosening rules on station ownership allowing radio stations to be consolidated as Right Wing propaganda outlets under a few owners. The ability to propagandize their talking points 24 x 7 over the airwaves without criticism, or offering up opposing viewpoints has been a foundation of the success of the Republican Party and the spread of conservatism.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

That is beginning to change. And the fear is palpable among conservative commentators who have ramped up vitriolic, and often racist commentary in an attempt to rally the base listenership. This particular conservative, tries and make the rather weak point, that anyone calling conservative commentary “racist”, even when it is racist – is violating the First Amendment Rights and is dragging the country into a totalitarian state.
