Check out this new poll up on rabid right-wing nutjob Sean Hannity's website:
What kind of revolution appeals most to you?
-- Military Coup
-- Armed Rebellion
-- War for Secession
Yes, you read that correctly. The loyal followers of Sean Hannity on his website are trying to gauge which form of out-and-out treason his listeners favor most.
Think I'm being dramatic?
See below the fold for more...
Here's the definition of treason:
Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as: "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]." In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aided or involved by such an endeavour.
Could you imagine the righteous outrage over on NRO or RedState if the website of a leading Democratic talking head like Keith Olbermann were running polls advocating the violent overthrow of the US government?
The decay of the Republican Party has been sad to watch over these last many months. Batshit-crazy stuff like this, however, is starting to truly frighten me.
