Dissent suddenly loses its cool

We heard that “dissent is patriotic” for the last eight years.

Isn’t it amazing to learn that when people use tactics they learned from the left to dissent from the government’s attempt to seize control over their health care, dissent isn’t patriotic any more?

According to Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, dissent is “un-American” and “Nazi-like” now. Harry Reid says that dissent is “evil.”

Apparently, for Democrats, dissent is only patriotic when its purpose is to cause the defeat of American servicemen engaged in combat.

I guess when all else fails (and all else certainly seems to be failing for the Democrats), the left resorts to name calling.

I’m sure that will fix everything.
