Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Re: IF YOU LOVE NIGERIA, SAY SO

Dear kayode, et al
Your statement about the american sedition act, which is cited below, reveals perhaps the dangers of taking information straight from the internet, without a deeper acquaintance with the subject. You are quite right our children are inculcated with love of country from an early age. You are right that there is the sedition act. However, there is nothing one cannot say, that is offensive to the US govt or institutions, that you cannot find every single day, not only on that same internet, but in the letters to editors published everywhere. The first amendment guarantees freedom of speech, and it is taken pretty seriously

‘The American Sedition Act of 1918 forbade the use of ‘disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language” about the United States government, its flag, or its armed forces or that caused others to view the American government or its institutions with contempt. Those convicted under the law generally received sentences of imprrisonment for five to twenty years.’ This statement is taken from the internet and anyone can check it out.
