'You Can't Be Pro-Insurrection And Pro-American,' Says President Of Nation Founded By An Insurrection
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The president shot back at what he called

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



WASHINGTON, D.C. — The president shot back at what he called "Super Duper Ultra MAGA Turbo Titans" Monday as he claimed "you can't be pro-insurrection and pro-American" despite being the commander in chief of a nation founded by an insurrection.

"Can you imagine Thomas Jefferson calling for the blood of tyrants? What if John Adams refused to pledge fealty to King George? England would've nuked us to oblivion. It would've been total malarkey anarchy!" said the unblinking Biden, unflinching in the face of a citizenry increasingly questioning whether he is fit to be president.

"Look, here's the deal, these Capitol insurrectioneserutes are traitors to American ideals because they wanted to challenge the results of an election," Biden confirmed. "I know this for a fact because a traitor is everyone who does not agree with me."

"We saw what happened," he continued, referring to the events of January 6. "Law enforcement agencies were speared with terrorist javelins dripping in blood, surrounded by carnage."

"These are all things that actually happened that I am not making up," he added.

At publishing time, White House officials had advised the president to stop saying "we saw what happened" in regards to the January 6 capitol riots because he keeps describing events that never took place.

Kinda reminds one of a previous statement of his. Something about not voting for him means you 'ain't' black or some similar thing. Of course, such statements takes context completely out of the picture in favor of absolutism. There are plenty of examples one could come up with where insurrection would be a perfectly reasonable thing to do. For instance, if the government tried to impose a theocracy. You know, kind of like it's trying to do now concerning going green, indoctrinating kids with LTBTQ values, neo-Marxist/postmodernist political theology and the like.  

And yes, I know it's satire. But is it?

The confederates and their leaders understood how the founders felt about slavery as revealed by the VP of the Confederacy:

"Jefferson, in his forecast, had anticipated this (slavery), as the "rock upon which the old Union would split." He was right. What was conjecture with him, is now a realized fact. But whether he fully comprehended the great truth upon which that rock stood and stands, may be doubted. The prevailing ideas entertained by him and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old Constitution were, that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature; that it was wrong in principle, socially, morally and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with; but the general opinion of the men of that day was, that, somehow or other, in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent and pass away." - VP of Confederacy March 21, 1861

Clearly we can now be critical of their inability to do away with slavery sooner, but we can all appreciate how much they did in the creation of America and the decision to base our laws on a constitution instead of a King. What the deplorable right wing conservative Trump sycophant insurrectionists did on January 6th was nothing like the fight for freedom our founders waged against a despotic tyrant, these dipshits attacking the capital were attempting to install a despotic tyrant and trample on the very constitution our founders designed. To compare the insurrectionists on January 6th to the founders and revolutionary's is beyond moronic, it's frankly disgusting, but it's exactly what you'd expect from deplorable dip shit traitors desperate to defend their sick right wing conservative fascist ideology and justify their true feelings toward our constitution and great nation.

I would feel very confident in saying that the vast majority of Jan 6 rioters/insurrectionists do not agree with the sort of assessment of the FF that you refer to in your comment. They chant "1776" with no ambivalence whatsoever , with absolutely no regard to FF owning slaves, or having any other flaws for that matter.

The insurrection of 1775 was in response to several years of actual unfair treatment by the government, an actual lack of parliamentary representation, and the failure of that government to respond to complaints when asked nicely.

The insurrection of 2021 was in response to a fantasy of election fraud that didn’t actually happen, was instigated after the insurrectionists were given many chances to be heard in open court, and where they failed to make an honest and compelling case.

You really can’t compare the two events.

...he claimed "you can't be pro-insurrection and pro-American" despite being the commander in chief of a nation founded by an insurrection.

It is known that our "Founding Fathers" were not of one mind. There were big splits between federalists and anti-federalists.

The oft quoted Jefferson was written on November 13, 1787 in a letter to William Stephens Smith on Shay's Rebellion. The rebellion failed, but it did strengthen the hand played by the Federalists when drafting the Constitution and some historians think that was what pushed the merchant elite to pass ratification in Massachusetts where anti-federalism ran deep in rural areas. 

In the beginning of August of 1794 President Washington sent 3 commissioners to negotiate with counties in open rebellion to the federal government due to taxation of whiskey. It's been widely written Washington was certain negotiations would fail. In September Washington summoned militia from Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia. He also sent out a statement saying anyone aiding the insurrectionists did so at their own peril. 

The federal government by this time had strengthened the militia laws and an army was raised of 12,950 men mostly via draft. On par with those raised during the Revolutionary War. Washington left Philadelphia on September 30th and later placed the army in command of Henry Lee, the current Governor of Virginia. The military presence brought an end to protests and a force of 1,200 men remained in Pennsylvania until 1795.

Most of the rebellion leaders fled west. Many of the men hid in the surrounding mountains. Those captured were paraded down Broad Street of Philadelphia on Christmas day. 24 men were charged with High Treason, 10 men stood trial, 2 were convicted and sentenced to hang. President Washington later pardoned those 2. The suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion was widely popular for demonstrating the new federal government was willing to suppress violent opposition to it's laws. It also helped the anti-federalist Republican Party to elect Thomas Jefferson who repealed the tax.

In 1798 the Federalists under President Adams enacted the Naturalization Act, the Aliens Friends Act, the Aliens Enemy Act and the Sedition Act (collectively referred to as the Alien and Seditions Acts). They argued these laws strengthened national security during the Quasi-War. Under these laws several publishers criticizing the Adams administration were arrested. 

The Aliens Friends Act gave the President the authority to deport any non-citizen that was determined to be "dangerous to the peace and safety of the United States". It was never enforced, but was used to pressure foreigners critical to Adams to voluntarily leave the country in fear of imprisonment. The law expired after 2 years.

The Aliens Enemies Act gave additional powers to regulate non-citizens during times of war. This act remains in effect as Chapter 3, Sections 21–24 of Title 50 of the United States Code. It was used by President Monroe against British nationals during the War of 1812. President Wilson invoked the act during World War I. President Roosevelt used a revised act after the bombing of Perl Harbor to round up, arrest, hold and remove Japanese, German, and Italian non-citizens.

The Naturalization Act changed residency requirements from 5 to 14 years to become a US citizen. At the time immigrants widely favored Thomas Jefferson. This act was was repealed by the Naturalization Law of 1802.

The Sedition Act made it illegal to make false or malicious statements of the US Government and used to arrest and convict several Jeffersonian newspaper owners critical of President Adams. This act expired at the end of 1800 was probably the biggest issue in helping elect Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson pardoned everyone convicted of the Sedition Act.

I think all American political articles should be posted under satire - IMO what's been reported can't possibly be normal.  Actually, I've given up posting on political articles - watching a lot of movies instead.  They are putting a lot of good old classics on the movie channels here lately.  Today I watched Great Expectations (I don't have many for the USA), A Place in the Sun (based on Theodore Dreiser's novel An American Tragedy - so what else is new) and The Philadelphia Story (totally unrealistic - no shootings).
