Deval Patrick: These darned Republicans are almost at the level of sedition

Via Weasel Zippers. Just curious: Is there even a single person among the left’s sedition cops with the balls to make the accusation without qualifying it somehow? Joe Klein was only willing to go as far as “borderline sedition”; same with Patrick, who drops an “almost” in there just to cover his ass. You would think guardians of the Republic would be bolder about their guardianship.

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…

After the forum, Patrick explained his remarks.

“I think that the number of people in the Grand Old Party who seem to be absolutely committed to saying ‘no,’ whenever he says ‘yes,’ no matter what it is, even if it’s an idea that they came up with, is just extraordinary,” the governor told reporters after the forum.

He went on to call it a “rhetorical flourish,” which tells you all you need to know about how seriously he takes this very serious charge. Want to feel even more depressed? Check out Rasmussen’s latest poll of the Massachusetts gubernatorial race. I guess Republican waves have their limits, even with an idiot like this as an incumbent.

In Patrick’s honor, here’s a new ad from Republican upstart Les Phillip, who’s running against Parker Griffith in an Alabama House primary. I think this now qualifies as high treason or something.

What Deval Patrick really appears to be implying is that they (Dem.) fear the GOP has broken the code of Demoncrates true effort and is closing in on Dem.

This is not to say that the GOP is s seditious group. Sun Tsu requires that the enemy be clearly identified as those who prize what we have and desire to have it too and will go to any length to take it away.

The Demoncrates have clearly identified U.S. as seditious. But, do not allow Dem any opportunity to sustain that claim. Be cautious that they are able to turn the table and call U.S. racist because we do not agree with their claim that their ideology is pure. Counter their claims with reality – say the Government is out of sync with its population and the precepts of the Constitution. This means we are including those of both parties that are not fulfilling their sworn oath; “To protect and uphold the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.” This causes them to become confused and self implode.

Our tactic is to stay focused on the issue – the current leadership of the U.S. political system is not focused on upholding their oath, now that’s seditious, nor providing the proper leadership of representing U.S. but focused on repressing U.S.

That is what the original Tea Party was about.

Les Phillip says they won’t call him a racist. But he’s a Republican, so yes, they will. Color doesn’t really matter anymore.

No, Les, they won’t call you a racist. They’re gonna call you a Tom. Love your ad.
