Sedition?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 16, 2017

         THE DEFINITION OF “SEDITION” SEEMS TO DESCRIBE THE ACTIONS OF SOME OPPOSED TO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION: “INCITEMENT OF DISCONTENT OR REBELLION AGAINST A GOVERNMENT.”

       WHILE ONE MIGHT ARGUE THAT OPPOSING THE POLICIES OF AN ADMINISTRATION IS POLITICAL, NOT SEDITIOUS, THE STATED ACTIONS OF OBAMA SUPPORTERS AND TRUMP OPPONENTS SEEM TO FIT THAT DEFINITION.

         THERE WERE REPORTS BEFORE OBAMA LEFT OFFICE THAT THE BUREAUCRACY WAS BEING FLOODED WITH ADDITIONAL PEOPLE FOR THE PURPOSE OF MAINTAINING HIS POLICIES, ESPECIALLY THE IRAN DEAL, AND UNDERMINING THE NEW ADMINISTRATION. NOW, THIS SEEMS TO BE CONFIRMED BY TWO REPORTS – ONE IN THE NEW YORK POST THAT REVEALS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF AGITATORS HAVE BEEN ORGANIZED TO DEMONSTRATE AND OPPOSE TRUMP WITH 250 OFFICES OPENING NATIONWIDE, AND THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON, WHICH REPORTS ON AN EFFORT BY OBAMA PEOPLE TO UNDERMINE AND OUSTER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN.

         THIS WON’T STOP AND THE ULTIMATE TARGET WILL BE TRUMP, HIMSELF. THE PRESIDENT BETTER HAVE A PLAN TO RESPOND AND GO TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, LIKE RONALD REAGAN DID. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
