The constitution limits treason to aiding the enemy. How would exposing an enemy's agent be treason?

Now, BEING an agent of the enemy, that's treason.

listening to Trump's treason rants and the noncommittal nature of it, I'm 99% sure that it was projection and Trump and his ilk are guilty of treason and that's what's so freakin bad in the Mueller report

This shouldn't be normal, but they're doing their damnedest to normalize it.

Trump literally accused Obama of not being born in the U.S.  Is that treason?
 
2019-03-25 04:58:15 PM  
"There are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, some bad things, I would say some treasonous things against our country" Trump said that today.  Challenging Trump is now treasonous, is the message, and Sarah wanted to remind people what the punishment for treason is.

Also, given this administration's penchant for projection, I'm going to the Mueller report includes evidence of treason.

Perfectly cromulent if you parse it correctly. They accused him of treason, which he would rightfully be executed for if proven. Hard to say if she was twisting the phrasing to trigger a reaction or if she just can't speak English very well. Maybe both?

The enemy is the {{melaninated}}, the {{homosexuals}}, the {{globalists}}, hippies, Constitutionalists, and all non-Christians inside the United States.  This has been the definition of "enemies of the United States" since 1789.

To be generous, it's not clear whether she's saying that Trump was accused of a crime equivalent to Treason, or that the act of accusing President Trump was equivalent to treason.

To be less generous, it does not seem clear whether malice or incompetence is the more likely explanation for this ambiguity. (It could also be both, but positing that seems to lack parsimony.)
 
2019-03-25 05:21:29 PM  
Sarah...are you saying that Donnie is going to declare war on the people of the United States, because that's the only way you get "treason"...

Have you ever considered how ANY agency--except perhaps ICE--might react when Donnie declares that the 1st Amendment is null and void? Because THAT is the slippery slope to declaring that the 2nd is null and void, and while a few folks might get a little tingly at the thought of the 14th going buh-bye...I can damn well guarantee that coming for citizens' guns and their faiths is going to get a fair chunk of the populace riled to the point that even the Secret Service will hand him over...raw and without salt...

I agree with the first point, but at the same time she's saying the words "Democrats," "treason", and "punishable by death" in the same breath, or at least in the same sentence or group of sentence fragments.

Oh, sure. If there is a plan, it looks like a phatic attempt to create association between those.

However....

I'm a terrible judge of individuals. That seems a question better asked of someone with more expertise in reliably reading people.

She took a job with a known welch and cheat, and has been trying like Hells to spin his every tantrum as three-dimensional chess, while more qualified and smarter folks have been fleeing this Administration by droves.

Well, "smarter" may assume the conclusion a bit; and I've fairly cynical assessment of the utility of intelligence.

As for the rest, what makes you think "a job with a known welch and cheat [...] trying like Hells to spin his every tantrum as three-dimensional chess" isn't her plan for the grift?

I get what you're saying, but it sounds like she is saying that being an agent of a foreign government, of which they accused him, is treason punishable by death, and an accusation that carries with it such an extreme punishment is the reason for her outrage.

Don't get me wrong, HuckaSands is a terrible person who deserves to suffer somehow for abetting this farce of a president, but this doesn't even kind of sound like what you're accusing her of saying, nor even that she is being subtle with 4D chess. God damn, don't these people do enough without leaping to our outrage machines based on misunderstandings?
 
2019-03-25 06:08:59 PM  
The video clip also cuts off whatever else she might have said afterwards to provide further clarity, for the sake of outrage. Aren't we better than this?

Hey Trump quit your biatchin about the witch-hunt jackass! You felt so persecuted but just remember everyone who investigated you and brought these actions were card carrying REPUBLICANS. Comey, Rosenstein, Barr, McCabe, even Mueller, all REPUBLICANS. When this all started in May 2017 the Democrats didn't even have the authority to order a ham sandwich. But they have some now and they will do so with all the vigor of the Benghazi and Hillary email investigations. So STFU your worst days are ahead.

I voluntarily suffered through seconds upon seconds of the huckabeast speaking out loud to see if I'm missing something here.

I understand her quote to mean "being an agent of a foreign government" is treason, not making the accusation.
