Once again, Joy Behar of ABC’s The View, has opened her mouth to remove all doubt that she is the bastion of belittling, bemoaning bigots. In other words, she is one more huge hypocrite. On the show today, Behar stated that Republican nominee for president Donald Trump should be charged with sedition.
She declared, “Everyone’s talking about how it undermines democracy, but he’s been doing that all along. He’s been praising dictators. He praises Assad, who used chemical weapons on his people. He basically disses our country and our president and praises dictators and people who use chemical weapons on their people. That’s who he is. America knows that now. We all know it. She’s going to win, and that’s it. Because he basically is a traitor. He should be brought up on charges of sedition. Sedition definition—conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or a monarch. I think that making jokes about assassinating your fellow — what do you call her — nominee, Hillary Clinton, is the definition of sedition. If you look on Twitter, all these people are coming out of the woodwork making anti-Semitic tweets, racist tweets. he has incited sedition. He should be brought up on charges.”Behar doesn’t know when to quit. She doesn’t even grasp the united States is a republic, not a democracy. Second, this woman doesn’t even understand “sedition.” And, she definitely has problems with grasping the First Amendment for other people while engaging in it herself.
He praises Assad, who used chemical weapons on his people. This has been proven to be false. It was ISIS and rebels who used chemical weapons against the Syrian people. According to a November 2015 article in The Christian Post, “The reason many Christians in Syria support Assad is because he has vowed to protect them from IS and other jihadists. By Middle Eastern standards, the Assad regime, including his father’s tenure as president, have treated Christians fairly.”
He basically disses our country and our president and praises dictators and people who use chemical weapons on their people. Donald Trump has not “dissed” our country as the professional “disser” Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Soebarkah has done publicly, privately, and among foreign leaders and diplomats. Journalists, commentators, opinion/editorial writers often disrespect the president and make scathing remarks against the Oval Office occupier. These same individuals remark on the deplorable state of this republic. In the same manner, these groups of individuals give credit where credit is due in praise to foreign leaders, including dictators. These are called “freedom of speech” protected under the First Amendment since even politically incorrect, offensive and vulgar speech is protected.
Because he is basically a traitor. Engaging in treason is identified in the Constitution as consisting “only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” Trump has done none of these nor incited anyone else to do any of these. However, both Hussein Soetoro and Hillary Rodham Clinton are guilty of “adhering to [our] enemies” and “giving them aid and comfort.”
He should be brought up on charges of sedition. Sedition definition—conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or a monarch. I think that making jokes about assassinating your fellow — what do you call her — nominee, Hillary Clinton, is the definition of sedition. According to the 1828 Noah Webster’s Dictionary, sedition is defined as, “A factious commotion of the people, a tumultuous assembly of men rising in opposition to law or the administration of justice, and in disturbance of the public peace. Sedition is a rising or commotion of less extent than an insurrection, and both are less than rebellion; but some kinds of sedition, in Great Britain, amount to high treason. In general, sedition is a local or limited insurrection in opposition to civil authority, as mutiny is to military.”
Merriam-Webster defines sedition as “the crime of saying, writing, or doing something that encourages people to disobey their government.”
Behar should know the Alien and Sedition Acts were repealed and allowed to expire. She should also be aware that States retain the natural right of nullification of unconstitutional law while people are protected by saying or writing opposing opinions in opposition to the law, constitutional or unconstitutional. Moreover, when it comes to encouraging people to disobey their government, it is a natural right reserved to the States and the people to disobey through nullification when government usurps authority by assuming powers it is not delegated. And, when the States and the people do not have a literal power to disobey (nullify), they can thwart, impede and obstruct unconstitutional acts. A full explanation of this issue of disobeying the government is covered here.
What Behar describes as sedition sounds more like “Black Lives Matter.” “Making jokes” is exactly that — making a joke. It certainly does not compare with the killing of an American citizen by a drone without affording that individual their right to due process or suggesting that an individual “be droned.” And, since when is Hillary Clinton the “authority of a state,” “a monarch,” or a “civil authority?”
Behar needs to re-examine her understanding of words and definitions. In fact, she needs to get her definitions straight. Perhaps she could attend a remedial class on basic English. ABC should consider paying for the course as a condition of employment.
If you look on Twitter, all these people are coming out of the woodwork making anti-Semitic tweets, racist tweets. he has incited sedition. He should be brought up on charges. Anti-Semitic and racist tweets are not sedition. Despite being offensive, these are still protected speech. The federal government is given no authority over the vestiges of speech. This is why libel and slander laws are made by the States. However, if this is how she really feels, maybe she would like to suggest “Black Lives Matter” be brought up on charges.
Perhaps ABC should consider terminating the employment of Joy Behar based on her lack of knowledge and marginal understanding of English. More importantly, people need to turn this show off and refuse to watch, boycott advertisers of the show, and peg her for hypocrisy when she engages in the same activities she accuses others of doing. Unfortunately, these networks hire “airheads” for these types of shows to appeal to the low information, willfully ignorant, incredibly dumbed-down masses since their target audience would have difficulty dealing with intelligence. Have you noticed how quickly those with intelligence on The View leave or are replaced?
