To be clear: the Sedition Act was “Aimed at socialists, pacifists and other anti-war activists,” the Act imposed harsh penalties on anyone found guilty of making false statements that interfered with the prosecution of the war, (WWI) insulting or abusing the U.S. government, the flag, the Constitution or the military” further the Act included those who advocate, teach or defend any of these acts. 1
The Sedition Act was repealed in 1921.
If the current democrat party under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have been true to anything, it is their constant abuse of the U.S. government. Add to that their never ending defense of those who abuse the flag, interfere with law enforcement and openly “teach” the ideology of socialism as superior to America’s system of democracy. It seems Pelosi believes her group can reinstate sedition to continue her own seditious activity of personal vengeful attacks on Donald Trump. But if they are in any way successful, their precedent could lead to severe losses in the democrat party leadership.
Following the election of Donald Trump the democrats began a coups effort that was no less than an all out attack on the President and the United States system of government. The initial attack began when Hillary Clinton planned, bought and executed the exposure of a fictitious report which became widely publicized as the Steele Dossier. But long before Adam Schiff organized his secret meeting room deep underground and behind heavily guarded doors, the FBI leadership was made aware that the dossier was not true. But that didn’t even slow down the democrat led coups attempt. Their co-conspirators within the FBI leadership lied to a federal judge to obtain warrants to spy on innocent Americans, then fabricated evidence supposedly obtained by the illegal surveillance to pursue attacks on the President’s friends and advisors; forcing some to chose between total destruction of their families financially and pleading guilty to crimes the government prosecutors had created.
It would seem that if we were going to have anyone charged with and prosecuted for sedition it would be the group of Democrats who have participated in the Russian collusion hoax, the attempted coup and overthrow of the president, those who supported and spoke out for the riots and if there’s anyone left in the Democrat party by the time of those folks got prosecuted I don’t think there be any leadership remaining free.
And in closing let me remind everyone that while there was ample coverage of looters, people throwing fire bombs and flares, crowds breaking windows with both private and commercial camera coverage for plenty of opportunity to identify these people by facial recognition software, no one of these rioters has been hunted down across the country and arrested and charged with crimes. In contrast, people entering the capital building, arguably doing exactly what they’re supposed to do according to the constitution, have been identified, arrested, charged and will certainly be prosecuted. Meanwhile the real anarchists continue their rampages across America without fear of prosecution because they have “justice” on their side.
