From Lowering the Bar’s post (“Counter-Petition Asks to Deport People Who Signed Other Petitions*”)
“Deport Everyone [Who] Signed a Petition to Withdraw Their State from the United States of America,” reads this petition, which has no text other than the title but I think still gets its message across. A little nastier is “Strip the Citizenship from Everyone Who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them,” although its single sentence asking the president to do this by executive order is itself fairly polite. (Would doing this by executive order be legal? Of course not, but neither is dropping bombs on citizens or locking them up indefinitely without a trial, even if a Nobel Peace Prize winner is doing it.)
I get the feeling that the author isn’t exactly on my side, but I applaud his willingness to take a legitimate smack at his own. By the way: this secession petition BS is inane. People should stop doing that. If you really want to tick off the President, sign or start a pro-pot petition. That drives Obama nuts.
*Yes, of course I want to see a petition that calls for deporting people who sign petitions calling for deporting people who sign petitions calling for secession. But I’m not going to make one: that’s clearly for people with more free time on their hands than they know what to do with.
