While most of the original Alien and Sedition Acts passed into blessed oblivion in 1801 and the Sedition Acts of 1918 were repealed in 1920, this has not stopped Democrats of President Obama from proclaiming that opposition to his policies by Republicans and the Tea Party Movement is seditious.
Now we have Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts chiming in during a law school forum. Patrick now says it was merely a “rhetorical flourish.”
Frankly, with regard to aliens and sedition, we’d be a whole lot better off if we didn’t have the President of Mexico making insulting remarks before Congress about Arizona’s Illegal Aliens Law and our gun laws as well as not having the Governor of Massachusetts casting aspersions on the President’s political opponents.
