The Daily GOP Ignominious: Sean Hannity And Fox News Stoke Sedition

Cliven Bundy threatens violence against federal agents as Sean Hannity eggs him on (via Raw Story )
Sean Hannity suggested Tuesday night that federal authorities are plotting a sneak attack on Cliven Bundy’s ranch after they appeared to back away from a standoff. The recalcitrant rancher threatened violence against federal agents if they dared try…

Sean Hannity has a history of stoking the fires of national discord some would call revolution.  He is one of the highest paid Right-wing demagogues in US media, he seems to hate the fact Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United State of America,

Within days of  then president elect Obama's first-term inauguration (January 20, 2009), Hannity's web page included the following.

Check out this new poll up on rabid right-wing nutjob Sean Hannity's website:

What kind of revolution appeals most to you?
-- Military Coup
-- Armed Rebellion
-- War for Secession

Yes, you read that correctly. The loyal followers of Sean Hannity on his website are trying to gauge which form of out-and-out treason his listeners favor most.
OK, let's do what we often do here on the TPI

A few definitions are in order.

Dictionary Dot Com


incitement of discontent or rebellion against a 
any action, especially in speech or writing, promoting such discontent or rebellion.  
Archaic. rebellious disorder.
  1. 1.
    conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

An act in addition to the act intituled, "An act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States."

By any definition Hannity as an active and highly paid member of the media is guilty in exciting sedition. His guilt is further tarnished the simple fact the Cliven Bundy is a tax evaders, welfare taker and operating outside the reality of other Nevada framers as they pay the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934The Wild Life News provides a counter position to comment and demonstration you may have seen or heard about from conservative America.

Cliven Bundy is being used by Fox News as yet another tool to strike at the the Obama Administration.

Rachel Maddow, MSNBC TRMS, and a long, but relevant segment about Right-wing media, specifically Fox News, and media efforts to rekindle an indictment that was smartly moved BY SOMEONE, to another lower level of angst.

And, since Fox News continues to mention Waco Texas and the Branch Davidians. Maddow's guest spoke from first hand knowledge.
Let's close with placing Hannity into proper perspective. The following exposition speaks volumes about the Fox News demagogue. As a matter of association, Hannity's seditious comments don't bode well for the network.
