I think you only mean "dissent" with which you agree

On my blogroll, you will find a link to the Sacramento Area Peace Action, which is a website run by our local leftists/statists, where they let everyone know what kind of marches, workshops, and events are coming up on the calendar. I have used it as a valuable resource to know when the good rallies are coming so I can be there with camera at the ready.

I check the SAPA website tonight, and found this upcoming event:
Thursday, Apr 29, 7pm, Film: The People Speak. Narrated by acclaimed historian Howard Zinn and based on his best-selling books, this film shows the rich history of dissent in our country and explores why it is so relevant and urgent today. Mike Pach, candidate for the Davis Food Co-op Board of Directors, will introduce the film. 345 L Street, Davis.
Dissent in our country is relevant and urgent, you say? Why do I have a feeling that your warm and fuzzy regards for dissent don't carry over to the "relevant" and "urgent" dissent of the Tea Party members who have been marching for over a year now? How about it SAPA? Does the dissent of the Tea Partiers qualify as being part of our "rich history of dissent"?
