2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Some apes are more equal...
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
Unlike you I fully understand what I quoted and it wasn't a blog, it was a law signed by Jefferson to squelch insurrections such as the one you and others are proposing. Jefferson had the support of public opinion on his side as will any president who has to put down a few extremists. So it might behoove you to remember that Timothy McVeigh is no hero.Now, had Jefferson attempted unilaterally to abridge the Constitutional rights of the American Citizenry, yeah you would have a point on the claim that he was a hypocrite on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems that you're just quoting a blog without understanding it.
