We’ll never forget this impassioned quote from Hillary Clinton — not because the thought behind it was particularly profound, but because her piercing delivery forever scarred our eardrums. “I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic,” she screeched.
Things certainly have changed since then, and not only because presidential candidate Clinton served in the current administration. It’s no longer just “people” but the president himself who will question your patriotism, as well as your compassion, if you disagree with his policies. Obama last night called out members of the GOP who debate and disagree with his administration as providing a “potent recruitment tool” for ISIS.
The president’s “new tone” didn’t go unnoticed by radio and television host and author Dana Loesch.
Under Bush dissent was patriotic. Under Obama, if you dissent with his foreign policy you're "helping ISIS."

Too bad he didn’t have the necessary restraint to keep it there.

@DLoesch absolutely, say what you want about the bush administration but at least the media criticized him

@DLoesch this is reminding me of U of Missou in that it is getting to the point where we just gotta tune it out

Do they have a safe space non-students can use?
