"Dissent Is Patriotic™" R.I.P.

Read it and weep. It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

On the other hand, remembering Sun Tzu and using your enemy's force agains them... consider Alinski's Rule #4 "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

In their book of rules, Dissent is the Highest Form of Patriotism. Well that's what they told us over the previous 8 years.

They call you a hypocrite when you occasionally fail to meet the goals your values set, as though Christ himself didn't say even the just man sins seven times daily. A good, real Christian knows he is imperfect and yet doesn't abandon his moral goals because he fails from time to time, and what these Progressive Community Organizer people profess to hate (especially in Christians, which is why I used that example) is other people cramming their morals down their throats ... while they do precisely the same thing and either can't see it or choose not to.

Meanwhile, they feel they are free from hypocrisy precisely because they have (supposedly) no such moral goals.

But they do, they just usually avoid calling them that.

When they dissent, it is The Highest Form of Patriotism™, when we do it is Un-American. When they organize, the people are speaking out and doing their duty as citizens using their first amendment rights when they burn things, block traffic, shout down speakers, start fights, and even blow things up (like Bill Ayers and his buddies tried to do). When we organize, we're angry mobs, and Nazis even though we refrain from these things.

When we suggest that perhaps constant, vocal condemning of everything any American soldier does anywhere and all but sides with our enemies during war might not be in our country's best interest, we're squelching dissent. But when we oppose massive government expansion domestically it's time for us to shut up. When we support letting the CIA track international call patterns to and from potential terrorists, it's domestic spying. When they call on citizens to report "fishy" arguments against Socialized Healthcare, its .... not.

In their arrogance, they have exposed themselves to their own tactics.

Hillary Clinton, at a passionate, screaming fever pitch during the Bush administration: “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”
