Glenn Beck Responds to Sedition Charge: ‘I love my country’

On last weekend’s syndicated “The Chris Matthews Show”, TIME magazine’s Joe Klein charged that some of the speech coming from radio & TV talker Glenn Beck, and others, is seditious:

“I did a little bit of research just before this show – it’s on this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition which is conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state. And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right up close to being seditious.”

Well last night on his show, Beck responded. “I love my country. I don’t even understand how speaking out now can be sedition.”
