Liberals love to believe in the fairy tale that free speech ends where their feelings begin. The First Amendment protects most forms of speech including Nazis marching in Skokie. However, it does have its limits, and Keith Olbermann is willing to test how far he can go before crossing the line into treason.
The sports journalist, turned failed news talk show host, has an internet show sponsored by the men’s magazine GQ, and on Thursday he openly pleaded with spy agencies from other countries to help develop a coup against President Trump that would result in an overthrow of the government.
“I appeal to the intelligence agencies and the governments of what is left of the free world,” Olbermann said. “To them as entities, entireties as bureaucracies making official decisions, and to the individuals who make decisions of conscience. To GCHQ and MI6 in the UK, to the BND in Germany, the DGSE in France, the ASIS in Australia, and even of the GRU in Russia, where they must already be profoundly aware that they have not merely helped put an amoral cynic in power here, but an uncontrollable one, whose madness is genuine and whose usefulness—even to them—is at an end. ”
“To all of them, and to the world’s journalists, I make this plea: We the citizens of the United States of America are the victims of a coup. We need your leaks, your information, your intelligence, your recordings, your videos, your conscience,” he continued. “The civilian government and the military of the United States are no longer in the hands of the people, nor in the control of any responsible individuals.”
Yes, that’s right. A man who accused Trump of treason and alleged Trump worked with the Russians to win the White House is begging the Russians to topple Trump.
Olbermann is an incredibly unstable individual who’s doing his best job at impersonating Edward R. Murrow but in the meantime is pushing on the borders of free speech and treason.
While it would take a proof of intent that Olbermann is conspiring with foreign spies to overthrow the U.S., his words are demanding action against the government not just anger towards the President.
He’s playing fast and loose between the lines of treason and free speech, which shows the desperation and lunacy of the anti-Trump left.
