(Before It's News)

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The comedian Sarah Silverman, who spoke at the DNC National Convention for Hillary, tweeted that her 10 million followers should “wake up & join the resistance” to President Donald Trump. She said: “Once the military is w/us fascists get overthrown. Mad king & his handlers go bye bye.” Silverman should be criminally indicted for that. Of course she will not be. The hate speech against Trump is astounding. Yet they protest saying that Trump is the one with hate speech. What is amazing is the public outcry for the overthrow of the government which is in fact a crime. If I suggest such a thing on this blog they would be storming in the windows. There is clearly a get out of jail free card protecting much of this dissent.

18 U.S. Code § 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
