No, this is not a joke. After five plus years of illegal and immoral activity from the most corrupt administration since the Grant administration, liberals want to see Republicans arrested and tried for sedition because they stood against Obamacare and raised the debt ceiling during the budget battle.
It would be a lot easier not to laugh at this “petition” if these liberals were equally as mad at the NSA for spying on us, or the Justice Department for perverting justice, or the State Department for covering up scandals, or the Secret Service for whoring around on duty, or the National Parks Service for using more money to shut down parks they could have left open, or the murder and abandonment of four Americans at the consulate in Benghazi, or the various departments that are accountable for the Fast and Furious scandals, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
In fact – it’s not funny. It’s a downright travesty that these liberals would pretend that this “crime” the Republicans have committed is anywhere near as egregious as what their little messiah has been doing for the last five years.
Here’s the petition statement:
I call on the Justice Department of the United States of America to arrest Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Speaker of the House John Boehner, and other decision-making House Republican leaders for the crime of seditious conspiracy against the United States of America.
And here’s the background on the petition:
The House GOP leadership’s use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down the government and threaten the U.S. economy with default is an attempt to extort the United States government into altering or abolishing the Affordable Care Act, and thus, is self-evidently a seditious conspiracy. Arrest the perpetrators in Congress immediately and bring them to justice.
This is what gets the left fired up, folks – Republicans daring to disagree with them. When Democrats disagree with a President, it’s called patriotism. When Republicans disagree, it’s called sedition. What a disgusting display. Worse yet, it’s already got over 50,000 signatures.
