Patrick says Obama critics are 'almost at the level of sedition'
Boston Globe ^ | May 24, 2010 | Michael Levenson

Posted on 05/24/2010 12:31:21 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Governor Deval Patrick, even as he decried partisanship in Washington, said today that Republican opposition to President Obama’s agenda has become so obstinate that it “is almost at the level of sedition.”

The Democratic governor, who is close to the president, made the comments at a forum at Suffolk Law School's Rappaport Center, where he was asked by an audience member about partisan battling in Congress.

Suck on this, Patrick:

Hillary Clinton in 2003: "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!"

The leftist elite have a word for folks like you (and me):

“ungovernable”.

There is really only one “final solution” for the ungovernable.

Deval Patrick, client of David Axelrod, just like Obama, whom Obama was given his quotes, trying to stir up ridiculous hype.

A close connection, n'est ce pas?

One suspects that the entire dissent=sedition notion comes from Mister Obama, and Patrick is merely carrying out an assignment.

Sedition-——an illegal action inciting resistance to lawful authority and tending to cause the disruption or overthrow of the government

Obama did that whe he was sworn in as President.

He knowingly accepted the Presidency when he was not a qualified person.

Probably something like that.
The point of the concentration camps was not only mass extermination,

but a total “grinding down” of the people. Just simply wearing them out, to death, with work and malnutrition and mistreatment.

This wasn’t just a matter of wanting them dead. It was more demonic than that. And the left today would follow the same pattern with the “ungovernable”.

Yes, they have very short memories. They threatened W, called for him to be assassinated, they attacked him on everything he did and they want to talk about “SEDITION”?

And they cannot let that happen. Not because they’d lose their “host” for their parasitic ideology,

but because they can’t stand the thought of someone living outside of their control.

Myril Axelrod, David’s mother, was formerly a writer for PM, a leftist tabloid newspaper published from 1940 to 1948 in New York City. A feature on the leftist nature of PM was published by City Journal in the Summer of 1993.

The paper was founded by Ralph McAllister Ingersoll, a liberal who thought he could use Communists on his staff to help with the circulation of the paper. The Communists, however, used the paper for their own purposes and he lost influence over the magazine after entering the Army.

In fact, in 1946 five of the staff members of PM’s Washington, DC bureau resigned in protest over the high level of Communist influence within the newspaper. The five resigned after three other members of the staff were fired. According to the five who resigned:

Although not himself a Communist, he [Ralph Ingersoll] has continuously yielded to Communist pressure and has denounced as factionalists those staff members who have tried to keep the party line out of the paper. He has destroyed the confidence of those who believe that PM should be as realistic and critical of Russian foreign policy as in its evaluation of the foreign policy of our own government. (New York Times, June 15, 1946)

The staff was comprised of both Communists and non-Communist liberals. The paper was overtly political and the writers didn’t hide their political biases in their writings. Ingersoll refused to carry advertising because he didn’t want the paper to be influenced by advertisers. City Journal writer Roger Starr noted: “Although every member of PM’s staff was profoundly anti-Hitler, the staff was divided into two cliques: the liberals who regarded the Soviet Union as a slave state, devoid of individual rights, and the liberals who regarded the Soviet Union as a living demonstration of a truly humane society.”

For example, Leo Huberman, a Communist sympathizer, was the labor news editor. I.F. Stone was the Washington, DC correspondent for PM. In the 1980s, a KGB agent fingered Stone as a willing participant in Soviet intelligence operations in the U.S.

The paper, however, was never a financial success without advertising. It received funding from Marshall Field III, a leftist millionaire who kept the paper running for eight years. Field also funded the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training school for radical leftist organizers, which was headed by Saul Alinsky. (Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were trained by Alinsky radicals in Chicago).

Former Communist Eugene Lyons, writing in The Red Decade: The Stalinist Penetration of America, noted that PM’s staff included a former editor of the Daily Worker; another was former editor of The Communist; and a third was a leader of the Communist Youth League; a fourth was a Soviet government official; and a fifth was the former staff cartoonist for the Daily Worker, the official newspaper of the Communist Party, USA.

We have been unable to determine if Axelrod’s mother was a liberal who considered the Soviet Union a slave state or a Marxist-leaning liberal who viewed the Soviet Union as a humane society. The fact remains, however, that her liberalism was obviously infused into the mind of David Axelrod and is what still apparently motivates him to support leftist candidates.

The anti-American socialist in our White House has nominated a judge who approves of rationing speech and other tactics in clear violation of the Constitution to sit on the Supreme Court. He has approved a budget that quadruples Bush’s already shocking deficits. The Kenyan/Indonesian/Hawaiian from Chicago has systematically weakened our country and strengthened our enemies. He has burdened our children and grandchildren with a staggering level of debt. The community organizer has transferred our wealth from those who actually produced that wealth to those who stuffed the ballot boxes for his and for his cronies. Sedition? There was a time when men like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and John Adams responded far more harshly to far less provocation.
