    Standing in dissent of the government is one of the very founding principles of the Republic and one of the greatest duties of any Free Man. You cannot maintain a Free Republic without doing so.

    Ah, so you don't actually want to backup your claim, you just want to scream "Censorship!" and let that be the whole of your argument?

    This turn of events is not entirely surprising.

    Hah!! You said a person's death "can go against the rights and liberties of the individual; which would make it traitorous."

    If they are a traitor then they are not a patriot.

    Dying for your country is the greatest form of patriotism because it requires the greatest sacrifice of self. People can sacrifice their life for treason too, but that doesn't make it a form of patriotism, it makes it a form of treason.

    Yeah...you're missing a "not". Dying for your country is not the greatest form of patriotism....

    It's a sad day when HS kids protest patriotism.

    Allowing them is no form of patriotism, typically you can't "not allow" them without engaging in treason and tyranny. The standing up, the voice opinion, the dissent against government action...those are acts of patriotism in certain realizations of the act. Following the law...not so much.
    So, is the administration engaging in "treason" or "tyranny" when it hustles protesters into "free speech zones"? Because outside of the security questions, I think that practice stinks. I didn't like it when Bush did it, and don't like it now when "the One" does it...But let's be clear, Not all protests are "patriotic"....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
