Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, speaking at a law school forum, said that GOP opposition to the Obama program “is almost at the level of sedition.”
Patrick later said the phrase was a mere “rhetorical flourish,” but this isn’t the first — or the fifth — time a prominent liberal politico has accused conservatives of approaching sedition in opposing Obama administration policies. See, the “almost” part is key, because then it isn’t offensive, right?
I wonder when the governor and the rest on the left will figure out that this country’s now mostly-defunct sedition laws were used to harass Thomas Jefferson and the Reds, and little else.
UPDATE: I should have said Thomas Jefferson, the Reds, and anybody Woodrow Wilson didn’t like. Liberal fascism.
