As noted at Hotair:
You know what makes military coups against democratically elected governments in a republic acceptable? Four red hearts. It’s kind of like Hello Kitty donning camo and a plastic M-16 replica. It’s so cute that you just want to say Awwwwwww before laughing in her face. Speaking of laughter on its face, the idea that the US military is just waiting for the high sign from Hollywood celebrities to march on Pennsylvania Avenue is, um … equally cute:She may have misjudged her audience again:
However, despite outcries over why Silverman has not already been arrested for sedition, it’s because she hasn’t committed that crime, or any other except an insult to intelligence. There is — thankfully — a very high bar to meet on speech and sedition, which allows us all to stave off fascism of other sorts that actually do present a more realistic danger to Americans. It takes more than just mouthing off, or tweeting off, to commit sedition, especially in light of Brandenburg. Advocating violence in general is protected speech, as is stupidly suggesting that the cure for “fascism” is a military coup with four emoji-heart clusters. In order for it to be sedition, Silverman’s speech would almost certainly have to have an immediate potential for inciting such an action, such as organizing and leading a military faction into a coup. There’s not much potential for that in a tweet, nor even in a stand-up comedy gig.And, from the right angles, she is even kind of cute, and that helps.
