So much for accepting the outcome of last Tuesday’s election. On Friday, Breitbart.com reported that a number of Hollywood celebrities have signed on to the seditious effort to invalidate the election, advocating a coup d’etat against President-elect Donald J. Trump.
According to Breitbart:
Some of Hillary Clinton’s top celebrity supporters are pulling out all the stops in one final attempt to change the results of Tuesday night’s presidential election, adding their names to and promoting a petition calling for electors in the Electoral College to go against state voters’ wishes to make the Democratic candidate president.
Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Pink, Amanda Seyfried, Sia, Jeffrey Wright and Laverne Cox have circulated a Change.org petition drawn up in the days following Donald Trump’s historic presidential election victory.
The petition, written by one Elijah Berg from North Carolina, had already gathered more than 3 million signatures as of Friday evening.
As we noted here, the petition calls for a bloodless insurrection against a duly- and lawfully-elected president. That petition reads, in part:
On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!
We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?
Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.

Nearly 3M have signed. Sign it, at the very least, to send a message that the fight against Trump did not end Nov 8. https://t.co/z98hyaS4fX

Trump won a decisive victory in the Electoral College Tuesday night and could finish with 306 electoral votes to Clinton’s 232. However, the Electoral College does not officially cast its votes for president until December 19, giving optimistic celebrities and Clinton supporters hope that its members could go against the wishes of their state’s voters and instead switch their votes to Clinton.
Some of the celebrities circulating the petition have been vocal in their opposition to Trump’s election to the presidency.
Of course, these celebrities have every right to support, vote and campaign for the candidate of their choice. They even have the right to speak out if they feel Trump is not governing as he should.
They do not, however, have the right to advocate a coup d’etat, effectively overthrowing the government.
