I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me about this clue!

Here is my best explanation:

'those challenging government not right' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I can't judge whether this works.

'after we slyly condemned' is the wordplay.
'condemned' is an anagram indicator.
'afterweslyly' anagrammed gives 'LEFTY LAWYERS'.
