Shame on you, Jed Bartlet!
Here is a video featuring several tremendously smug Hollywood celebrities trying to convince electors to defy the voters and block Trump from becoming president. However, in an act of cowardice, the folks who posted it on youtube have disabled comments on the video, and the ability to see how many up and down votes there have been.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, sedition is “incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.” It seems possible one might argue that this is what those who financed, produced, and appeared in this video are up to. It is an incitement for the Electoral College, which meets on Monday, December 19th, to conduct a bloodless coup against the Constitutionally elected president.
Regardless of what these progressive entertainers might have preferred, the American voters had more than a year to hear all the arguments, and then went to the polls on November 8th to choose the candidate that they think best suited for the job. You may not agree, I may not agree, but that is how our system of government works. Fortunately, this isn’t going to go anywhere, but it does illustrate the extent to which desperate progressives are willing go in their efforts to change the result of a presidential election that doesn’t go their way. Shame on you, Jed Bartlet!
