Perhaps Donald's lawyers were concerned about his Tweets:

"In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Sedition is the stirring up of rebellion against the government in power. Treason is the violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or state, giving aid to enemies, or levying war against one's state. Sedition is encouraging one's fellow citizens to rebel against their state, whereas treason is actually betraying one's country by aiding and abetting another state. Sedition laws somewhat equate to terrorism and public order laws."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Don't accuse the moron of sedition or treason, just let him continue speaking and watch as the rest of the world sees what a petty child he is.

    It's been far too long since we have had a Howard Hughes type of billionaire unraveling. I have to admit that I am kind of enjoying it.

    Most of the people taking a hard line against us are firmly convinced that they are the last defenders of civilization... The last stronghold of mother, God, home and apple pie and they're full of shit! David Crosby, Journey Thru the Past.

    •  How can you compare Trump to Hughes? (0+ / 0-)

      Hughes had his mental health issues but he was a genius who invented and built a lot of stuff.

      Trump is an asshole who destroys land, lives in a gold plated penthouse, and thinks the flatulence he belches up actually means something.

  •  Sedition can not be tolerated (0+ / 0-)

    especially by the rich who got us into this economic mess.

    Arrest him, charge him, and hang him. Then move on to right wing media figures (Limbaugh, Murdoch et al). Hopefully by the time we start hanging congressmen they will get the picture and vote for the president's agenda.
