‘Petition To Secede’ Trend Sparks Counter-Petitions To Deport Those Calling For Secession

petition to secede response white house website

A “petition to secede” seen for Texas and nearly two dozen other states on the White House’s site for crowdsourcing feedback (We The People at petitions.whitehouse.gov) has become a strange footnote to an unusually divisive election — and you can add petitions to deport those wishing to secede to the list of petitions to secede trending right now.

Coverage of the petition to secede for Texas and other states on The Inquisitr has revealed in the comments a still intensely divided America, our readers expressing solidarity or decrying a lack of patriotism in seemingly equal measures.

And correspondingly, the petition to secede pages have been gaining a growing number of signatures. As we pointed out earlier, those numbering 25,000 or more signers require an official Obama administration response.

The “petition to secede” movement seems to be growing as the trend becomes viral, and a quick glance at recent petitions reveals the three most recently created:

Now you can add to those petitions ones criticizing the petitions to secede, themselves. It’s like a political Inception meme. One is simply titled “Deport Everyone That Signed A Petition To Withdraw Their State From The United States Of America,” with no wording to elaborate and more than 2,000 signatures.

Another petition requests to “Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them,” with signatures climbing in the hundreds as minutes pass. It reads:

“Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported.”

While the “petition to secede” craze grips America, perhaps one solution will halt the trend — all those wishing to secede from the Union must first correctly spell the word “secede” before their signature is officially counted.

    sounds good to me as no longer a citizen we wont be forced to pay for the do nothings that support the removal of those who wish to secede then who will they get the items they wnat for free payed for by? I would think they would think things through before opening ones mouth.

    I think Americans who are over 40 remember what we were taught about the United States when we were young. The values and agenda of todays US is not what we were taught. I think those of us who remember these things are very very tired of the new agenda of teh bleeding hearts we want a handout while we sit on our butts US. I'm looking into moving my corporation OFF US soil. I don't wish to pay taxes into a system that doesn't represent my beliefs. I think Republicans should pay full taxes when there is a Republican President and Deomcrats should pay full taxes when there is a Democrat President–Forcing one group to support another groups ideals is wrong–it un American. Its the new slavery.

    Oh no who's going to pay for all the government handouts if everyone secedes. People are going to have to get jobs….Oh no! The more kids these idiots have the more handouts they get and don't realize its coming from the working class. I cant wait till the next prez gets rid of all these handouts and you are forced to pay 650 dollars a month for your obama care.

    If you don't pay taxes and recieve handouts your not a citizen, you are just hanging out in this country. You should not have a vote in anything.
