conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.
the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.
I'm surprised that her lawyer isn't familiar with these definitions.
Excellent observation. But apparently, Ms Griffin thought she could get away with it and so does her defense team. What really bothered her is that CNN fired her. I'm sure she was not expecting that. As it stands now, it appears her career is kaput.
Huai Lang: It's amazing how many individuals living in The United States of America, have NO KNOWLEDGE of it's laws. I'm speaking of the ones born & raised here. I imagine they were sleeping through their American History class. Look at them now...Knowledge is a wonderful & valuable thing!
Either Ms Griffin is not mentally stable, in which case she or her guardians should seek mental health treatment for her or she meant to portray exactly what she did with a purpose, in which case she should be prosecuted for any laws that were violated as a result of her actions. Maybe both options are applicable in her case.
Im so happy Kathy posted it, and by the way she did not break any laws, the thin skinned don the con cant take it, so he wast tax payer money to visit Kathy, like he thinks hes scaring her, and she is laughing all the way to the bank and im LMAO too, it was great I hope she does more!!!!!!!!!
For many Americans knowing how other countries work is only learned in textbooks. I lived in South Korea in the early 80s and they did not have the freedoms I had. As an American I got to enjoy my freedoms while those native to the area did not. I also lived in West Germany, and yes, they have many freedoms, but their tax system at the time was much higher than ours and they didn't have the luxury of owning homes. We have more freedom to express ourselves, to achieve our dreams, etc. When I hear someone say I hate America, I encourage them to pick a country that seems to be in alignment with their views; however, when they do they should renounce their citizenship before leaving. My great grandparents came her from Russia at the turn of the century and they loved America.
true history classes were dissolved when teacher unions were formed in the 60's now they teach modified history, unlike when i went to school in the early 70's where history and civic classes were mandatory! now civic classes are gone and history is taught by the teachers bias or the movies they see!
Exactly correct, and She should be charged with 'threatening(in her actions) a Sitting President, and sent to prison, and it WILL set the tone, for Other Idiots like Griffin, who think they can HIDE behind 'the Entertainment
excuse, as any OTHER citizen WOULD BE CHARGED. Next, I'd love to see the "Park Entertainers that suggested Trump BE ASSASSINATED", to standing ovations.........Arrest these fools, as they are "thinly veiling their very own
"SUGGESTIONS TO SOME NUT, TO ACT ACCORDINGLY"........JUST LIKE THE ONE WHO SHOT REP. SCALISE, AND THOSE WHO HUNT DOWN REPUBLICANS, AS THE DEMOthugs ARE THE ATTACKERS IN 99% OF THESE CASES."
WE DO HAVE LAWS, AND I WANT THEM ENFORECED THE 'THE FULLEST EXTENT-FOR ANYONE-AND ENTERTAINERS?
WHO THINK THEY CAN DO THESE THINGS, AS THEY HAVE A MIC, SHOW, ETC.
Or maybe he is familiar with them and knows that what she did does not meet either definition. She's an asshat, but she didn't break any laws. What she did clearly falls within her first amendment rights, but that doesn't mean there won't be consequences like being fired and having all her upcoming shows canceled.
Papi Paul I was a history major. The precedent that no one threatens the president without an investigation is an old one. Too many presidents have been shot to not take threats seriously. Just in my lifetime there have been many attempts on the president's life or on a candidate for president's life. The Kennedy brothers, Reagan, Ford multiple times and add on the attempt to kill muliple congressmen (all Republican btw) and you have a hostile environment that was created by leftists dating back to BLM and promoted by groups like Anti Fa. The fascist left is not above violence. We know that for a fact. Protecting the president is the job of the Secret Service. They have been investigating threats of this nature for a very long time. It sure as heck didn't start with Trump as Krazy Kathy would have you think. I think YOU missed out on a history class or two.
Her crime, in the United States, is not sedition. In fact, she has not been charged with a crime nor is she likely to be. However, stupidity is a universal crime and it generally carries sever consequences, often death. Pick up whatever rag claims to be your local newspaper and find the listing of people killed while driving drunk. Worse still, those that were killed for no other reason than they shared the same road.
Ignorant libtard, You mean like Fascism aka the "antifac" who physically attack people who they disagree with and silence conservative voices, WITH VIOLENCE!, is that what your accusation?! And If that was Odumbo's bloody head in a noose a year ago would you be pushing your party line about people being racist, would you defend them as you have here? I think NOT. You're a hypocrite and are mad because your loser lost. Suck it up butter cup and move one with your life. TRUMP WILL BE PRESIDENT for another 3 1/2 to 8 years. Hitlery ain't! Nor will Bernie the socialist. Accepted reality and enjoy the freedom under a capitalist president. Or would you prefer to live in Venezuela to see what a Bernie administration is like in eight years?? The only people who have money is Murduro and family and Chavez family. Just like Bernie is a millionaire because of his government job... only the political elites have money under socialism or communist.
Leftism is a religious cult. They have the fallen nature, Capitalism. Salvation is Socialism. The prophets are the oppressed class representatives. Heaven is Communism and Hell is the free market.
They admire Islam so it goes to prove they would join in a jihad to kill and oppress the infidels who refuse their Messiah, Barak Hussein Obama and his coming queen mother Hillary.
Liberalism is the biggest threat to the American way of life…Liberals hate Americans, the Constitution, and free market capitalism. They have destroyed our economy with measures like the ACA and immigration amnesty. The “Affordable” Care Act has been nothing short of a disaster. My health insurance bill is up to $450/month. (Compare this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda or my $10/month renters insurance… both private enterprise!) Keep your hands off us!
I hope all of you Obama voters have gotten what you voted for. Race relations are back to where they were 40 years ago (no worse) and we have a President and complicit media complex working in cahoots to cede our rights and prosperity to the third world. You liberals all must be so proud.
Kelly Grace, he has not broken any laws that would cause him to go to jail. Even if you stupid Democrats could create information that could get him impeached, would not mean he was going to jail. If that were the case, then former President Clinton would be in jail for committing perjury during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
You say you 'get it' Kathy. You don't. You made fun of other presidents, but you never presented them as beheaded in a time when beheadings are a very real and practiced thing by our enemies. So....maybe you actually should 'get it'....as in a few years.......
Griffin is never funny; her jokes are always at the expense of someone else: cruel and spiteful. Her career was treading water so I'm sure she thought she'd rouse the house with this attention-getting scheme. She sure got attention, alright. Lost contracts, cancelled shows and a lot of people making her the butt of their jokes now.
Agree with both Margaret and Carrie Rudoy Mataraza. Presidents are fair game to comedians but Griffin (and many others these days) have gone way over the line. It's about time the Secret Service started paying those dingbats a visit. Such bahavior is not only tasteless but is dangerous. The Sanders supporter who shot the congressmen at baseball practice, while responsible for his own actions, doubtless felt vindicated to act out his ugly feelings because of all the ugly support he saw in the media, Hollywood and even from the unsettled on Capitol Hill.
Carrie is right that Griffin never was funny and in fact was often mean and spiteful. Along with displaying the bloody head, she promised to go after Barron. How sick is that?
@ps2os2, there is no comparison between Joan Rivers making fun of Hollywood clothing on the red carpet and displaying a bloody head of the POTUS at a time ISIS beheads people. If you watched the preparation for the shoot portion of the video, it is obvious that Griffin knows she's stepping in deep doo-doo. One can hope the Secret Service put the fear of God into her warped untalented mind.
Once again the Secret Service is taking a liberal passive childs approach to this. Instead of being grownup and taking their job seriously abd arresting these idiots for threatning the President and instigating riots.
Lock these idiots up for a few hard years and this shit will stop.
It's obvious that Ms Griffin, along with Stephen Colbert, Madonna, and others think they can get away with it. I agree with your point of view; this country is entirely too lenient with law-breakers and worse thereby putting all of us at risk. People will do what they get away with and what they're allowed to get away with. I think we're all sick of it and that includes the profanity on the Internet and TV which has turned these media into a cesspool.
Prett disgusting isn't it? I think decent Americans are getting fed up with the way people are being allowed to get away with anything in this country. But consider, the biggest blow to Griffin is being fired from CNN....I don't think she was expecting that.
Psos2 free speech is not free you moron. You can't run into an airport yelling bomb or stand up on an airplane and yell hijack part of a comedy routine. Fucking libtards. Read the first amendment and all of the Supreme Court rulings behind it. There ARE consequences for you actions. Burning a cross on the White House lawn in your book under the last administration would have been free speech as well?
It seems that they have those rights because enough of us won't enforce what rights they really have. Right to suggest that Trump is assisanated by a terrorist with one of the express desires to mentally upset a 10 year-old boy to get back at his Dad is akin to screaming fire inside a theater filled with hundreds of people all paniced to save their lives. That is not a joke, it's not funny and it is also illegal. Just like what Kathy did is illegal. Not only did she suggest Trump be murdered but she also intended to hurt his 10 year-old son AND even admitted that openly to the public. And let's look at the Trump vs CNN thing. Now we have a public apology from the guy who actually did it and strangely enough he didn't mention IF Trump knew about it BEFORE or AFTER the rest of us had an opportunity to view it. Additionally, Wrestleing? Really? Like anyone with an IQ above 40 doesn't understand that Wrestleing at the Pro level is just coreographed entertainment? Wrestleing at the Pro level IS a joke. The matches ARE comedy.
What kind of people might share that bed? I saw the shot of her holding the head and thought of The Godfather scene. Someone should put a bloody head in HER bed. To be honest, I know nothing about KG, whether she's in movies or tv, or sells pencils on a street corner. She is pathetic, though.
comedians/iennes have viewed politicians from the President on down as fair game. Gerald Ford slipped on a helicopter step and a late night comedian showed a photo. there went Ford's presidency as it portrayed him as a stumble bum. so, holding elected officials to task and showing their inconsistencies has been part and partial of free speech, but never to the extent as the present with bloody heads, calling for assasinations, and the like. the line of decency has been crossed, objectivity has given way to personal vindettas and emotions and a degredation of authority--------and often by those in authority. perhaps a bit of propriety on both ends of the spectrum might be a good thing.
As to propriety I agree but will state that this violent stuff has not been perpertrated by Trump but by others and mainly in the liberal MSM.
With respect to the aspect of personal vindettas and emotions coupled with a deredation of authority I am now forced to reveal MY beliefs as I see them from the Holy Word of God, more commonly referred to as the Christian Bible. Feel free to disagree if you wish but remember they are MY beliefs, not yours, and as I currently understand my nations 1st Amendment to our Constitution, I have the freedom to believe what I believe and express those beliefs without fear of retribution of ANYONE.
That being said might I direct your attention to 1st Peter verses 13 throuh 31 and Romans verses 1 through 7? I feel there is an instruction to all of us from God on how we should be dealing with government. Our nation's laws, our Constitution, specifically shows us how to go about such things and ultimately who, other than God, has the power and authority to change it.
Why is it that so many 'good' Christians look and react to the Word of God as if it's a Cafateria menu where you can choose just what you like to eat and completely ignore the rest because it doesn't 'fit' into their every day lives?
Don't get me wrong, I am not judging or condemning anyone here, I have problems of my own to deal with but I am not deluding myself into the belief that what I do doesn't matter and I am then free to do just anything else that appeals just to me, and those who agree with me of course. I am simply making an observation I have been viewing for many years now.
Sounds to me like POTUS and his administration is starting to address this and will be making more visits to those that think they are above the law or that may continue in this sort of activity or may even be of Kathy Griffin's mentality and want to take it even further. She and many others have now been warned.
It really doesn't make a lot of sense to try to reason with some posters like proudamerican or ps20s2 but ps20s2's post here does offer an opportunity to remind everyone that indeed Obama did go after the press, mostly Fox News but others as well, including individual journalists. He was fortunate to have the MSM on his side so his hitlist didn't get covered like Trump's gets covered. However, a list of Obama's hits indeed exists and is out there. I'd suggest looking it up before claiming that Obama is so innocent.
Conni Lane, I couldn't reply directly to your comment, for some reason I don't comprehend so I am posting it here in the hope that you might see it or that others might see it and comment as well.
One of the reasons I believe they feel this way is because to date, historically speaking, we have never done much of anything about holding these people legally accountable for their actions. So their actions get more and more sickning to our society while they feel that they are so special, because they are in the public eye, that they are somehow exempt from the laws the rest of us would be held accountable.
For example. What if average John Q. Public done something like Kathy did or it was found that he had been illegally storing and using email information that could have been or was damaging to the safety and welfare of every Citizen of the United States of America beause that information Could have been leaked or was leaked to foriegn advasaries? Would they be given the same pass as Kathy or someone attempting to become our nation's president?
I, like you, thank God we have a president who truly loves this country and ALL it's citizens. One who will ensure that those against him are treated just as fairly and legally as those who are for him would be treated.
Terrific! It's about time our law enforcement shook up this inciteful, disgraceful and dangerous "free speech". It sure as Hell is not "art" but rather it's traitorous and treacherous and extreme. These anti-Trumpers are "shouting fire in a crowded theater" which is a crime and needs to be stopped. Shakespeare in the Park is only one such horrendous example. Griffin, Madonna, Judd and their ilk are ignorant, venomous and self-important. Interesting that all of the violence since the election has been caused by Left Democrats and Progressives, isn't it? All of this needs end. It is time we stopped these spiteful vicious activities and got together as a country which has been cruelly divided since 2008! Instead of supporting identity politics, we should be "melting pot" patriots!
I totally agree with all your observations. We should thank God we live here especially when one considers the desperation of those who gladly risk life/limb to come to our shores and breath free air. I do agree that this country is way too lenient with law-breakers and I, too, would like to see this change.
This griffin person is but another example of a bully who uses her words to harm hurt, inflict pain and discomfor on others. Look back at some of her monologues on YouTube or any recorded special where she was a participant. everone is a verbal attack on some one, some group or some organization attempting to meet a need. (excepting PP)
Her entire career is based on being a bully, look at her, remember her, bullies come in all sizes, shapes and either gender. She is just one of the shrewish bullys.
Agreed, the Secret Service needs to stomp on these people. They need to show to everyone once and for all that entertainers, journalists, and professional activists are not untouchable and can spend time in prison, just like the rest of us
Oh boo hoo Kathy! You said yourself when you did it you and that man would have to move out of the country? Everybody is responsible for their own actions, you can turn over a new leaf, but you still have to do the time for the crime.
to conservative calm.... and its assinine of you to say its racist,,where did she asssume, or even imply that Mr Lang wasnt born in USA? and what differnce does it make where he was born? she was remarking on the ignornace of americans who were born here irrespective of Mr lang..youre assumptions are in poor taste
She should have been arrested, then questioned. She could post bond and be released and REALLY get a feel for the seriousness of what she did...demonstrated hatred and violence toward our current sitting President! Send a messege to all the rest of the people who might think this is 'funny'. It is NOT. It is a threat.
Neither Kathy Griffin nor any other American should be excused for the disgusting stunt she pulled. I hope people are savvy enough to NOT pay to see any of her performances. What a disgusting troll she really has proven herself to be.
actually, you are wrong. free SPEECH has nothing to do with what YOU, or anybody else wants to hear. That's the whole point of the "free " part. your choice is to walk away, turn the TV off, shoo the proselytizer from yourfront door, or whatever; but it isn’t to call the thought police and demand that somebody be silenced. and to quote something that was actually said (vs your non attributed non-quote)-“When people say, ‘I believe in free speech, but …,’ then they don’t believe in free speech,” [Rushdie] said. “The whole point about free speech is that it upsets people. “It’s very easy to defend the right of people whom you agree with — or that you are indifferent to. The defense (of free speech) begins when someone says something that you don’t like.”
Obama spawnd a lawless society that made lib subversives think they're above the law. Bravo to the SS for doing their job and not brushing this horrible act under the table. If anyone would have done that to Obama they would be in prison already.
I'm calling it now. The Secret Service will arrest her. The case will end up in the Supreme Court, Griffin’s attorney, Dmitry Gorin, will again claim the comedian was merely exercising her “First Amendment rights to tell a joke.” The Supreme Court decision will be 9-0 against Griffin and the opinion will simply state, "When has Kathy Griffin ever told a joke?"
I might have let Kathy Griffin slide on her comedy but when I found out that she had been intentionally trying to get to Trump's 10 year-old son then I knew that she was the sicko that she is and deseves all the scrutiny and punishment allowable by law. Hope she fades into oblivion and I never see or hear anything about her again. To make mental attacks on a 10 year-old is not something excusable as "Just a joke."
Won't see this in the MSM. Hell on CBS news the other night they referenced the CNN reporters who made a mistake and left their jobs. These people can't and won't tell the truth under any circumstances. I am all about free speech AND THE DONSEQUENCES OF IT.
She got what she wanted...attention..good,bad or indifferent. Now she can cry...why? Why? If I can incite a riot...I am duly charged...she thought the other 50% would cover her. She never ever had the clout she thought she did. At best a c/d personalit. But the best part is the C/D personalitys are covered like they are an A lister. Hollywood is losing big time.... like their personality actually counts... love the results of the election...it shows the people won...not the ones that thought they could sway the young people... election eve or there About JZ and the wife....shows losers and want to be losers
Holding up a severed head has been a terrorist threat for quite a few centuries now. Making a terrorist threat on the life of the president is a crime that should be appropriately punished. Freedom of speech does not apply to illegal actions. Case closed.
Dear Kathy Griffin's dim wit lawyer: The First Amendment protecting free speech doesn't mean you can say anything with impunity: there is protected speech and there is unprotected speech (e.g., slander, libel, child pronography, death threats, threats of harm,...). Griffin's "speech" is unproteced, hence the visit from the Secret Service, to discuss the true intent regarding her "joke".
Stupidity has consequences. Being an entertainer does not confer any special rights. There was a cartoon early in Obama's presidency which showed a noose. The implications were clear but not the source. The cartoonist was more clever, if no less funny, as Ms Griffen. I recall at the time the Secret Service tracked down the cartoonist. They are charged to track down anyone deranged enough to imagine the decapitated head of a sitting President. If someone created an image of anyone's decaptitated head, law enforcement would attempt to track them down as well. I wonder if she was trying to get the attention of Jodie Foster?
There is no law demanding one may not jump from a plane absent a parachute. There Is no God-given right protecting said jumper from splattering upon impact. Progressives demand self-responsibility is hate language. Progressives are wrong.
Kathy Griffin will be a better person for eventually being a bigger person. But first...she pays tuition from her own purse.
___ she likely didn’t think about the wide-reaching implications of her so-called “joke.”___
What kind of ridiculous lead is that? Of course she "thought about it". If she didn't, she's mentally off her rocker. It is clear she's not stupid.
Memo to Kathid ibn Griphoni: John Wilkes Boothe, also an entertainer, expressed hiimself "in another way." Whereas you will be forgotten shortly after your entertainment exposure ends, Boothe is still frequently discussed over 150 years after "expressing himself." The Secret Service is aware of how motivating fame is to an entertainer. They just want to verify that you are not "too motivated" to seek that kind of fame. If they ignored your behavior then everyone would surely condemn the Secret Service for being too passive in their duties.
Kathy Griffin went way beyond a joke. I am disgusted at just how sick she really is. If they don't want to lock her up for fear of all of her liberal fans going into attack mode, maybe they should put her in the funny farm and throw away the key.
Okay, let's everybody take a break.
I just commented on the guy who did the Trump/Wrestlemania video who apologized and quit and told him he did nothing wrong.
Since I am a conservative, I'm actually consistent. I happen to think that Kathy Griffin lies everytime she calls herself a comedienne since that implies a certain level of funniness which I do not see in her. Nevertheless, for the Secret Service to be doing this is over the top and ridiculous.
Just like I don't think President Trump actually attacked Vince McMahon and is encouraging others to attack anyone who works for the Clinton News Network, I don't think Kathy Griffin was actually suggesting cutting off the President's head.
Conservatives are SUPPOSED to be able to laugh at ourselves. If we lose that then I don't see that we're any different than the demmerhoids.
Actually, she demonstrated a level of imbalance in her judgement. You cannot tell what is actually in her mind. The Secret Service is tasked with doing an investigation to determine if it was a threat or not. As Depp reminded us, Presidents have been killed by actors before. Lincoln: "Great show Mr. Booth, but your humor is crossing the line by coming into my....blam". It is obvious also that she did not produce the piece on her own, who else participated? Were they trying to be funny? or did they bait Griffin to make the statement before they went and did something? How do YOU know? Let the Secret Service do their jobs.
Kathy probably still wonders what she did that offended so many people, and is likely placing the blame for the consequences on cruel people who don't understand "humor." This liberal strawberry loon should switch to flipping hamburgers at McD's where her only required judgement would be, "Is it done?".
Celebrities are the type of people who DO have access to high government officials and it makes perfect absolute sense to me that Griffin and Johnny Depp get visits from the Secret Service.
They're a tad touchy about POTUS threats after what happened to JFK, RFK, George Wallace, and Ronald Reagan.
Oh, and as Depp said, who knew? Yeah, I'd search all of them, twice because some Hollywood loser is EXACTLY the type who might try that. They have enormous egos, no grip on reality, they think they know everything, they're grandiose and narcissistic beyond description, they crave notoriety - and they hate the President.
So, screw you, you ugly twat.
It's not a joke when you blatantly show a decapitated head of our president and then claim it's freedom of speech. It's like yelling fire in a crowded theatre. Fake news's excuse when they publish untrue stories is it was a "mistake". The stunt is like subtle threat to Trump. But when Trump tweets a response suddenly it's taboo. But then again isn't Trump exercising his freedom of speech too? When oppositions punch don't think Trump will just sit there and do nothing. He is a fighter when bullied.
What you do is arrest these idiots and jail them and let it cost them some money to get out. Then you also have an arrest record even if you get cleared. Make them work for it. After a couple hundred thousand dollars, maybe they will think about the next time. If they have ANY violence in their past,....uh oh! How about the restraing order they had with their last spouse? All this will be considered and they could force them into "anger management" for 6 months or so. The point is, just don't drop it.
I'm tired of the ignorance shown by people who claim/project an air of being superior to us, mere peasants. They claim First Ammendment rights, but they haven't a clue to our rights. It's ignorance on the liberal side, they have never learned American history and never studied the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. My generation down to the parents of todays snowflakes have failed to teach these generations the realities of life, and what our government is and stands for. They should have been taught how the liberals have developed a welfare state meant to keep you dependent over the last 80-90 years. That giving the governement the right to determine your health insurance means you will have to accept the limitations to care that congress deems fit. That the liberal agenda is to give the government ability the right to determine every aspect of your life.
We need to either take up arms against this force who is trying its best to incite violence agains Constitutionalists, or split this country into 2-3 parts and go our own ways. The time for talking and moaning is over.
Griffin’s attorney, Dmitry Gorin, has claimed the comedian was merely exercising her “First Amendment rights to tell a joke.”
Well, we all know if a comedian (or anybody else really) had done something like this to 'merely exercise their First amendment rights to tell a joke', but with Obama's head -- heads would be rolling (bad I know, but couldn't help myself) by the end of the day......heck maybe even by the end of the hour. Most of us know a stunt like this wouldn't have been tolerated (not even for a second) if it had been Obama instead of Trump.
Griffin was inciting violence. Many people (including myself) had no idea she is a 'comedian'. I'd never heard of her before. She is a public figure presenting a tasteless display of gruesome violence. She is one of many that have promoted violence against the president. Isn't it some form of sedition?
She did commit a crime. "The Brandenburg test was established in Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 US 444 (1969), to determine when inflammatory speech intending to advocate illegal action can be restricted. . . . The test determined that the government may prohibit speech advocating the use of force or crime if the speech satisfies both elements of the two-part test:The speech is “directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action,” AND The speech is “likely to incite or produce such action."
Kathy, go drink you're Starbucks...
Progressive libtards love 'diversity' and their Starbucks LOL!!!
BREAKING Starbucks Hit With MASSIVE Karma After What Their Coffee Just Tested Positive For (fecal bacteria (feces))

Excercising first amendment rights is fine. But I does provide enough latitude to get yourself into a real jam. Fine you can perform an outrage like the one she did being reasonably certain it doesn't violate law, but don't imagine for a moment that will shield you from some response from American Humaity. Griffen shredded sensibilities from coast to coast. And her eventual reward might be a job in retail sales.
Hang this traitor along with the rest of the liberal democrat evil party! They have been since it's creation, trying to destroy every country they are in. Since 1776 and before, they have been trying to take over this country, and keep everyone poor so we have to depend on them for everything. Sounds like a communist party to me!
Griffin and Depp and all the rest of the Hollyweirdos need to be prosecuted for their actions. If I did what they did I'd be sitting in a county jail right now awaiting trial for threatening the President. But they get treated with kid gloves?
Griffin hasn't done anything "funny" for years. She's merely insulted and bullied her way around making fun of disabled children, old people, sick people, etc. Hopefully we never hear or see from her again until she's released from prison.
Like most on the left, Kathy Griffin thought she was being funny-"cutting edge"- with her little stunt.
No doubt she got what she was looking for, lot's of "likes" on FB and thumbs ups (or whatever they have) on Twitter. "Yay!"
Unfortunately fo her, she got more than she bargained for- the disdain of thinking Americans- and is now boo-hooing herself.
Hopefully she will learn from this experience, but it's doubtful. It's much easier to play the victim card and cry tears of "unfair treatment" than act like an adult, accept responsibility for her stupidity become a better person.
"Life is hard. It's even harder if you're stupid."
Kathty Griffin and her ilk are in for a very hard life. (or at least the next seven years of it)
Kathy Griffin should be kissing the ground she stands on because in other countries she would have already been executed for doing such an outrageous act. Whether you are anti or pro President Trump it doesn't matter here. Kathy Griffin clearly needs a psychiatric evaluation.
she did what amounted to yelling Fire in an auditorium. she should be punished hard. But now to a lighted side. Wonder if she would have like the 'joke' is the secert service and fbi showed up to her house with a bloody kathy head and when she opended the door...they say gotcha!....
Tragically the hatred filled air in our country after 8 years of previous administration pumping it 24/7 is such that sick, mentally unstable and vicious individuals were given a VOICE to feel free to attack and besmirch anyone who dares not to share their views. Media and so-called "entertainers/comedians" are going out of their ways to outdo each other and themselves in their effort to insult and destroy our president Trump DULY elected by American people! There is a world of difference between Respectfully exercising free speech right and Enticing /promoting violence -ESPECIALLY since we had seen way too many actual beheadings by vicious Islamists! Kathy Griffin Should be charged to the maximum allowed for her crime, that will deter others from following in her footsteps .
Griffin's shyster conveniently forgot the fact that her so-called joke was about the President of the United States. Also, her "joke" was in questionable taste and could be construed as a threat against the President. Why do you suppose the Secret Service paid her a visit? Griffin's lawyer must have plucked his law degree out of a box of cracker jacks. What a fool!
The video of her and the photographer talking about how they will have to leave the country because of the picture shows she knew what she was doing was wrong. She is getting the consequences of her actions. She needs to quit playing the victim.
Kathy and her rioting friends don't need to be locked up.... They are just a little confused and need to have their wings clipped. Just put her and her rioting friends on the terrorist no fly list till everything gets straightened out.
I think this was handled appropriately. When people talk about killing the president or act out killing the president, no matter whether it was a joke or not, they deserve a sit down with the secret service. Obviously there's a gray area where it's hard to say for sure what constitutes a legitimate threat, but holding a severed Trump head in a picture should qualify you for a visit from the secret service. No, it's probably not a crime and no one will need to be arrested, but we still need to follow the procedure because the threat is serious.
Any amount of American patriotic expression by wearing the colors of our flag has now become "vulgar". So says the wealthy, liberal, over-educated elite on our nation's birthday. We attend an "annual" party thrown by a prominent gay attorney neighbor couple who avoid displays of Our precious "red, white and blue"
While, this isn't exactly posing defiantly with a fake, bloody head of our president, it does exhibit disdain for a country which afforded them the freedom to persue their dream!
What these liberal lunatics fail to understand is that if a radical muslim gets a hold of her, he would be holding up her head as a trophy. There is no such thing as a liberal muslim. there is radical, and moderate only. They all want the same thing, a world wide islamic (caliphate) government. Anyone who does not convert to islam, dies.
The left incites people to violence against Trump and against Republicans in general. The left burns buildings, attacks conservative speakers, assassinates police officers, supports and rationalizes the behavior of terrorists. But when the president has the temerity to call them out on it and turned humor and ridicule on them for doing so they accuse him of intimidation.
Or when an Internet jokester produces a humorous piece making fun of CNN, the abuse their investigative power to extort a “confession” worthy of the cultural Revolution on the jokester. Such hypocrites. Such weenies. And worse, such incompetence, given the fact that the CNN jokester that they extorted the confession from was apparently not the one who produced the actual Internet version of humor that Trump used in his sweet.
What is worse – Hypocrite, weenie, or incompetent?
Threatening the President will create an investigatio... even if your proclaim to be a comedian. If the Secret Service doesn't laugh at your joke you are screwed, and they are not known to have much of a sense of humor when people start threatening their boss.
No one ever described Ms Griffin of being very smart. She maybe get a pass if the SS thinks she's extremely stupid.
Her lawyer might need a refresher course on the right to "tell a joke".
One, if it was a joke, it was the worst one ever. It was not remotely funny. I've laughed much harder at a brist. Two, even if we stretched the definition of the word "joke" to include all words ever spoken, someone still doesn't have the right to threaten someone else. That is not protected speech.
I'm quite certain that Griffin won't get arrested but it's only because she lives in a very reasonable and generous country that is still inclined to give citizens the benefit of the doubt even when it's not warranted or justified.
As long as you claim to be a comedian or say you're just joking,exercising your right to 'freedom of speech' etc it seems anyone can say anything as long as it's 'Politically Correct' except for when it's about the present President of the USA 'who 's name happens to be Donald R. Trump. That's not cool in my opinion.
fireworks? well now you know what others faced when they did stupid crap like you did when obam was in office or any other president since the 19th century when the secret service was formed! your no better than any of the other nut jobs!
This wasn't so much sedition or traitor action as it was pathetic posing. She's a D-list comedienne who wanted some attention. As offensive as I found her "humor", I don't think it rises to interaction with the Secret Service. She should simply be shunned as a performer.
e did commit a crime and should be prosecuted. We need to enforce the laws and maybe then a level of civility in discourse would return.
The Brandenburg test was established in Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 US 444 (1969), to determine when inflammatory speech intending to advocate illegal action can be restricted. . . . The test determined that the government may prohibit speech advocating the use of force or crime if the speech satisfies both elements of the two-part test:The speech is “directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action,” AND The speech is “likely to incite or produce such action.”
She should do time, she did a terroristic action, if any regular person did that, they'd have locked that person up. The rich Hollywood stars and famous people toss threatening language and they get away with it. George Soros the nazi collaborator who paid rioters 1500.00 a day should be locked up for inciting riots in major cities and trying to influence the presidential elections as soon as he sets his putrid feet in this U.S. of A.
I hope this POS liberal gets what she deserves. I'm so sick of all these holly weirdos and their leftist agenda. don't you think it's important to note that the louder they are the more irrelevant they are. some of these clowns had 15 minutes of fame in the 80's and think people actually care what they think .
dumbest thing ever -- get a life people -- As if the President is above everyone else -- fck em -- how many shirts are at there with Obama in the crosshairs? what about that Senator that said Hillary should have a bullseye on her back? this is joke -- the SS are doing what they are told because Trump has a really small dck
Burr made the comment while visiting a gun shop and with a crowd of Second Amendment supporters. He apparently noticed a magazine about rifles with Clinton's face on the cover.
"I was a little bit shocked at that — it didn't have a bullseye on it," Burr said to the crowd.
No one seemed to care much about this -- or called to have him put in prison. I mean what is implied by a sitting US Senator that our Secretary of State and Candidate for Congress should have a bullseye on her face. Does this incite violence? Or was this a joke too? or is it because most of you hate her that its ok --
how about this? " If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?" Ted Nugent -- should he go to jail?
choreographing a multi-media'd decapped head under the guise of humor is quite different than what you cite yo; nugent recently pledged to curtail such talk. no, jail's not right for KG, but maybe a stint in a asylum for the stupid would be appropriate
It's illegal to incite violence against the president. Griffin must be made to understand that what she did was not a joke. Every time these left-wing jerks engage in violent rhetoric like this, they fall back on the "joke" excuse. Only a total idiot would think what Griffin did was comedy. It was not a joke. Now that she understands that, she wants to hide behind the First Amendment. But there are limits even to that right, one of which is that you cannot incite violence against the president. Ms. Griffin's silly complaints about Trump wanting to ruin her life raise an excellent question. What exactly were you, Ms. Griffin, trying to do to Trump? What was your purpose? Answer that honestly, and we'll know what our response to you should be.
Not a joke...sorry Kathy this was not even close to being funny! Glad you lost your job and other appearances...you are getting what you deserve! I see you standing with your lower lip out, like a little spoiled child who got caught misbehaving and it reminds me of something my Mom used to tell me when I tried this little move.."you might as well put that lower lip away before a bird poops on it because it's not working on me"..My Mom was a very smart lady
Kathy Griffin is being PERSECUTED, not prosecuted by a psychopath who happens to be our President. Trump is intoxicated with power. He has ordered his Gestapo (used to be called the Department of Justice) to strike down Kathy Griffin with a heavy hand.
I quote for our Declaration of Indepence, " --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.--" Kathy Griffin is doing her part in helping to alter and/or abolish a destructive government. She is well within her rights to dispay a mock beheading of a vicious tyrant, which in this case is Donald Trump, our 45th President. Kathy Griffin is NOT GUILTY of anything other than expressing her First Amendment Rights to Free Speech. Our nation's founding fathers created the First Amendment because popular speech need not be protected - only unpopular speech, which in this case is a photograph of Kathy Griffin demonstarating a mock beheading of der Fuhrer, er I mean President Trump. In closing, Kathy Griffin's mock beheading of the tyrant Trump is simply akin to the Boston Tea Party, and Thomas Paine’s anti-monarchical argument in his pamphlet, Common Sense. You Trumpers are no different from the Tories who favored to side with the Crown. Free Kathy Griffin.
@ max duggan, all you stated in a twisted warped way, even attempting to use a part of the declaration is just a call to Communism. Your condoning such behavior by Griffin shows how low your morals are.
I would not condone a similar effigy of obama either.
Ha. Luv it! She is now forever on all major security agency lists and will be open to full-access procedures. This mean she will have all her communication monitored. In addition, she can expect to get some sweet retribution from Trump with a few years of tax audits. What an idiot. Her life as she knew it is over in every way. TRUMP BUMP!
Whether we like it or not, nobody was harmed and this falls directly under free speech. Right or wrong, she can say what she wants any way she sees fit. Like burning the flag, which is symbolic (the flag isn't our country, but a symbol FOR it), waving around a fake head is also symbolic, not actual. She's within her rights, as repugnant as we might find her message.
My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do >
We are a nation that exists for several reasons, one of the most important of which was that we were tired of being prosecuted for criticizing the God-appointed leader.
Griffin should legitimately face the professional consequences of her foolish actions, bit to suggest that she is legitimately advocating, encouraging, or planning to participate in an assationation is against what our Constitution, and our nation itself, stand for.
Haui Lang I guess all you nut jobs when President Obama was President should be locked for Treason...........how many times did you and all on here post pics of hanging our President Obama? You sic hypocrits need STFU and quit crying. Kathy Griffin is laughing her ass off. How many millions of post threatning President Obama, and not once did he send the big bad feds out to try and scare anyone for posting free speech. Quit crying you snowflakes and take up the a$$. You gave it and gave it and now its being shoved back so take and suck it. What little toddler Don the Con is oh wow Im going to send the feds to Kathy because she hurt my feeling what a little toddler in cheif with little hands. We need more Kathy Griffins, I personally hope she can top the head, and do something even more funny. Fing cry babies.
