1. I agree that it is, but being a misinformed loudmouth isn't informed dissent.

5. Dissent just for the sake of dissent is no core value
   In the past, whenever protesters dissented, they usually had an alternative solution. These mobs are not offering anything substantive, they're dissenting for the sheer purpose of intimidating and bullying others into submission.

4. What's happening at the town hall meetings is NOT dissent!
   It's an organized effort to prevent ordinary citizens from talking to their congressional representatives about healthcare and other issues that matter to them. It was bad enough when they were simply being obnoxious and shouting RW talking points, but now they're getting aggressive. They're using fear and intimidation to stop the democratic process.

It's not dissent - it's terrorism.

14. There's a difference between being a clueless hectoring crackpot, and
   disagreeing with a government policy or program based on honest KNOWLEDGE of what that program entails.

When you say "dissent," if you don't mean "INFORMED dissent" you're not being true to the original meaning of the sentence.

Crazed rantings by misinformed asswipes isn't dissent. That's behavior that is the result of clueless nitwits buying off on pure propaganda.

29. Dissent based on what
   Edited on Fri Aug-07-09 04:12 AM by Juche
Dissent based on a desire for personal liberties and freedom carried out by an informed, passionate public against a tyrannical government? Yes.

Dissent based on low information voters with right wing authoritarian (aka protofascist) personality types who have their fears, prejudices and bigotries stoked and manipulated by corporate interests so they can be molded into useful idiot foot soldiers who oppose meaningful legislation designed to improve standards of living for Americans, legislation most of them don't understand the first thing about? No.

35. We have an obligation to silence these teabaggin' assholes
   These disruptions are clearly hate crimes. In order for justice and freedom to continue we must crush these assholes and their stinking families - as a warning to other haters.

The irony of that statement. Roll Eyes

There you have it,agree with a left position and it is dissent...agree with a conservative position and it is being an uninformed thug.

Notice how quickly one can redefine protest and dissent into criminal behaviour.
History is trying to repeat itself and it is a bit scary.

It is, of course, they are just changing the definition of dissent now to suit their agenda!

Kinda like "Depends on what the definition of "is" is".

havent you got the meme?
Activism and protests from the left are patriotic. Activism and protests from the right is hate speech and needs to be silenced.

Help keep America beautiful...deface a liberal.

The Democrat and Republican parties are simply the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

The road to freedom is paved with dead liberals.

Badcat, absolutely.  Deeply disturbing post.  Forwarding to Beck, Rush, Hannity and anybody else who will listen.  Also, my other site Moonbattery, which is getting a lot of traffic. 

Most of that thread was such pure bullshit I scrolled through it until I got to the end.

When you say "dissent," if you don't mean "INFORMED dissent" you're not being true to the original meaning of the sentence.

And exactly who defines "INFORMED dessent?"  Because I assure you that any definition from the likes of you and those like you is not now, nor has it ever been, nor will it ever be, an accurate definition.
