‘Tis The Season For The Treason

If you have looking at the online news for a while, you know that Mike Huckabee will say anything to get attention to his joke of a presidential run. It is de rigeur for the hard right to smear Obama any way they can to bolster their conservative creds.

Republicans since Nixon have been the party of law and order. But has one of their own broken the law by saying this?

There’s nothing more honorable than serving one’s country and there’s no greater heroes to our country than our military, but I might suggest to parents, I’d wait a couple of years until we get a new commander-in-chief that will once again believe ‘one nation under god’ and believe that people of faith should be a vital part of the process of not only governing this country, but defending this country.

Not only is this idea a blatant violation of the wall of separation, but Huck might have also violated the Espionage Act. It states:

The Espionage Act of 1917 is a United States federal law passed on June 15, 1917, shortly after the U.S. entry into World War I. It has been amended numerous times over the years. It was originally found in Title 50 of the U.S. Code (War) but is now found under Title 18, Crime.

It was intended to prohibit interference with military operations or recruitment, to prevent insubordination in the military, and to prevent the support of U.S. enemies during wartime.

Now this is 2015. That Act came from a different America, where our first anti-war activists were being born. But my point is, Republicans are always skirting the bounds of propriety and law while they undermine President Obama’s sunset years. They freak out when Obama is “lawless”, but don’t mind denigrating the office to protest his actions, and that includes coming dangerously close to being rather lawless themselves.

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
