Sarah Silverman just broke a federal law.
In an all-caps panic, the anti-Trump “comedienne” wrote the following about President Trump and the GOP’s Wednesday activities, “WAKE UP & JOIN THE RESISTANCE. ONCE THE MILITARY IS W US FASCISTS GET OVERTHROWN. MAD KING & HIS HANDLERS GO BYE BYE.”
This is a direct threat for a military coup against the federal government — but thankfully, there’s a stiff punishment for advocating such activities.
Here’s what “18 U.S. Code § 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government” has to say:
“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… Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.”
“… imprisoned not more than twenty years…” Yikes.
In the end, it seems like liberals need to think before they speak — if that’s even remotely possible.
