Ep. 21: The Sedition Act Strikes Back

A long time ago, in a Capital far, far away, the Federalist Party worked to enact ruthless anti-sedition laws which served to harass, intimidate, and sometimes jail anyone who disagreed with the General Government.  Unfortunately, my colorful writing isn’t simply inspired by a recent Star Wars movie or the tragic death of Carrie Fisher.  In subtle form, the Sedition Act of 1798 may be making a comeback, or rather a strike back.  Who knows, maybe in a few years, the Battle for Liberty will be branded as fake news and become the target of the Global Engagement Center’s anti-propaganda efforts.  You need to understand what I’m talking about.  Listen up before you’re no longer permitted.
