Time?s Klein: Beck, Palin Potentially Committing Sedition against U.S. Government; Heilemann Adds Limbaugh | NewsBusters.org

Free speech is now "sedition!" :lol:

Remember when the left thought this was okay???

Since CBS probably won't be repeating the August 4 edition of "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn" anytime soon, here's a video still from that evening's infamous "In The News" segment. In a monumentally dumb bit, the show superimposed the words "Snipers Wanted" over an image of Bush delivering his acceptance speech at the Republican convention. Both CBS and David Letterman's Worldwide Pants (which produces Kilborn's nightly smugfest) apologized for the "inappropriate and regrettable" graphic/threat. TSG guesses this means that Dubya won't be taking Dave up on that offer to debate Al Gore on the Ed Sullivan stage. (1 page)


FUNNY! Somehow that was okay and "free speech." Then remember the two books that came out in Summer 2004 on how to assasinate Bush?

A Novel's Plot Against the President (washingtonpost.com)

Ben: Obviously you have something on your mind.
Jay: That's true.

Ben: You could begin with that.

Jay: Okay. Uh. I'm going to -- okay. I'll just say it. Um.
Ben: What is it?

Jay: I'm going to assassinate the president.

Though it is against the law to threaten the president in real life, a work of fiction is usually protected by the First Amendment.
Oh yeah! We have to understand their first amendment RIGHTS when it comes to liberals.

But if that first amendment swings the other way toward a Democtrat president, guess what happens????

Liberals are all too often eager to charge conservative personalities of using hyperbole to gain a political advantage, especially when it contradicts their world view - whether it's suggesting the Obama administration is taking the country down the path of socialism, fascism or any other -ism.

However, it could be argued there's a different set of standards for those same people when they want to make strong charges. On NBC's April 18 "The Chris Matthews Show," Time columnist Joe Klein all but accused former GOP vice-presidential nominee and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, along with Fox News host Glenn Beck of sedition.

"I did a little bit of research just before this show - it's on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition which is conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right up close to being seditious."

As Klein pointed out, the legal definition of sedition is "a revolt or an incitement to revolt against established authority." And, sedition has been declared a felony in Supreme Court opinions, thus making Klein's national television accusation a fairly serious one, one of which New York magazine's John Heilemann agreed with. However, Heilemann added conservative talker Rush Limbaugh to that list.

"And Joe's right and I'll name another person, I'll name Rush Limbaugh who uses this phrase constantly and talks about the Obama administration as a regime," Heilemann said. "That phrase which has connotations of tyranny. And what's so interesting about it to me, to get to Norah's point - what is the focus, what is the cause of this? You think back to 1994, there was Ruby Ridge. There was Waco. There were triggering incidents. There's been nothing like that. The only thing that's changed in the last 15 months is the election of Barack Obama. And as far as I can see, in terms of the policies that Obama has implemented, there's nothing."

The double standard could not be more obvious. If you call for snipers on President Bush or write books on killing him? THAT'S FREE SPEECH!

BUT IF YOU PISS OFF LIBERALS WITH ANYTHING YOU SAY. IF THEY DON'T AGREE WITH YOU OR YOU ARE GETTING ON THEIR LAST NERVE!!!!!!!!

THAT'S SEDITION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You could not be more downright infantile than the petty and obvious double standards liberals want to play in the political arena.

If conservatives had come CLOSE to doing ANYTHING the liberals did while Bush was president, liberals might have a valid argument for incitements to violence, but they haven't.

There haven't been conservative shows having "snipers wanted" over the face of the president.

There haven't been books teasing about how to kill him.

The left spent eight years showing nothing but raw naked HATRED for Bush and they have the nerve to cry sedition if they think conservatives are getting too "uppity?"

It would be funny if it were not so damn galling.

And the really pathetic thing is, I don't think liberals even see this as a double standard.

I think they really do believe they have a right to do anything they want, and it's anyone that disagrees with them that better watch their step.

Liberals on this forum can cry that's wrong all they want, but the liberal leaderships actions and words speak a lot louder than any forum protests.

This is the "don't try to refute the evidence, just ignore it, and demand they provide more evidence," tactic. :lol:

This is alo the "you haven't won the debate until you convince ME" tactic. :lol:

Did you think that was going to work? :lol:

I have no problem with liberal double standards. It is better than when they have none at all.

Is there anyone from Fox or in the right wing media that has called for the killing of former President Bush? Or even President Obama? Could you provide some sort of source?

The op doesn't contain signs from anyone.

One example is from "Late Night with Craig Kilborne." The other is examples of books written during the Bush admin that caused quite a bit of controversy that the left wing media said was "free speech" as evidenced by the article (I included) about one book.

Can you keep your fantasies out of this and talk about the actual op?

Blu doesn't need evidence of this. His mind is made up. Why be confused by facts?

Let me translate that:

He can't get around the the evidence I posted of liberal hypocrisy on the free speech issues, so he pretends it isn't there and I just attacked liberals sans evidence.

Every liberal plays that one.

Exactly! :clap2::lol:

I went through the same laughable hypocrisy when Clinton was president. All this, "oh this 'extremism' caused OK City bombing. We can't have all this criticism of the government." (which meant criticism of their Democrat hero, Clinton)

Then when Bush became president they turned on a dime and said, "dissent was patriotic."

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CzteDucRHo]YouTube - Hillary Clinton - I am Sick & Tired (Right to Protest)[/ame]

But, a Democrat became president, and WHAT DO YOU KNOW! All of a sudden dissent isn't patriotic again. Why it's extremism. It causes violence. Why it's sedition. :eek::eek::eek:

It all boils down to the immaturity, the intolerance, and the STALINISM liberals have toward anyone that disagrees with them.

THEY are the annointed. THEY are handed down by "god" (the pagan god of liberalism) because we little red neck hicks donn't know what is good for us! THEY are the enlightened.

Of course it's "sedition" to disagree with them. But it's sedition to the arrogant statism they think should run this country.

They reveal a lot about themselves in their own arrogant double standards.
