    When the left is not in power, dissent is patriotic.


    At the top, it's a different story:

    "The left is trying to shut down the opposition. When they were out of power, dissent was patriotic. Now that they are in power, they want to use both the state and intimidation in the public square to shut down opposing views. It goes beyond boycotts to financially intimidate those who disagree with them. Now, the left is showing up at the private homes of American citizens they disagree with to intimidate them, threaten them, harass them, and make them pay for daring to have a different view."

    What is different is the left's response.

    When the GOP is in power, you proclaim dissent is "patriotic".

    When dems are in power, you proclaim it's criminal, and call out the goons.

    "I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration."
    — Hillary Rodham Clinton

    youre only look at how one side is viewing things.

    right now the GOP sees dissent at patriotic, because they arent in power. remember Jan Brewer at the airport, and "You Lie"? they say that at patriotic. but when the GOP is in power and the Dems are against their way of governing, the dems are now "unpatriotic."

    your argument is retarded.

    Of course, the existence of the occupy movement destroys the idea that the "left" all have the same changeable opinion of dissent or that we are so easily led or that all dissent is created equal. The right certainly considers their dissenters more patriotic than OWS and vise-versa.

    That's because OWS is an acronym for Out-of-our-fucking-minds Wingnut Scum...formerly known as mentally ill street people and inmates. Even the lefties have stopped pretending they're anything else.

    At least right wing protesters don't cause all kinds of property damage and other violence
