The term to use is 'psychological projection'.
Projection: "Psychological projection or projection bias (including Freudian Projection) is the unconscious act of denial of a person's own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, such as to the weather, the government, a tool, or to other people. Thus, it involves imagining or projecting that others have those feelings."
With Progressives raising the common talking point of the word 'sedition' it can only be for one reason. They are imposing what they are doing on others as it has a reason for it to be connected to those people.
When the time comes that the word 'sedition' actually has meaning, it is imperative that it be already connected to the talking heads of radio and politics of the conservative side. That way, it can be used against the accusers and tied to the accusers instead of the accused.
Wikipedia says Sedition is: "Sedition is a term of law which refers to overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority as tending toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.
Typically, sedition is considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where the history of these legal codes has been traced, there is also a record of the change in the definition of the elements constituting sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within the study of state persecution."
The set up is simple. Accuse the players of saying things that are in someway anti-Obama. Make that mean anti-government, make that mean anti-America, call it 'sedition', push that wherever possible , the same way: then... when Progressives are proven to be seditious, all they have to say is, see... we told you they were seditionists.. now they say we are... who you gonna trust?
USC § 2384. Seditious conspiracy cannot be used as it requires 'force', so we use § 894. Art. 94. Mutiny or sedition:
(a) Any person subject to this chapter who—
(1) with intent to usurp or override lawful military authority, refuses, in concert with any other person, to obey orders or otherwise do his duty or creates any violence or disturbance is guilty of mutiny;
(2) with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of lawful civil authority, creates, in concert with any other person, revolt, violence, or other disturbance against that authority is guilty of sedition;
(3) fails to do his utmost to prevent and suppress a mutiny or sedition being committed in his presence, or fails to take all reasonable means to inform his superior commissioned officer or commanding officer of a mutiny or sedition which he knows or has reason to believe is taking place, is guilty of a failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition.
(b) A person who is found guilty of attempted mutiny, mutiny, sedition, or failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct.
It is all a big set up to control public perception of the word 'sedition'. Nice thing is though, they will have a harder path injecting the word 'treason' as that one will be tossed their way as well.
It is Physchological Projection and a set up! Get used to the word sedition. It has real meaning.
